  1. Hi folks, I'm back to do a little project that I've been wanting to do ever since I built the Hasegawa F-35A Lightning; namely to build the long hoped for Hasegawa "B" version!. They have come rhough, and I've gotten my grubby mitts on one. I personally feel that the Hasegawa is hands-down the best 1/72 F-35 out there, first the "A", now including the "B" version. (You might correctly surmise that I'm waiting breathlessly for their "C" version, as well!) Some folks didn't like the Hasegawa F-35A, simply because it had no open weapons bays/missles. Folks -- it's a STEALTH aircraft. All that fluff hanging out in the wind is not the best thing ever, as the radar image would not be very stealthy. Well, their "B" version is the same -- no weapons and no bays. The reason that I feel that Hasegawa is the best model of this aircraft is simply that it's pretty much dead-on accurate, as well as having decals provided for the Ram panels, versus the "sculptured terraces" that everyone else uses for RAM panels, with or without decals. But enough editorializing. I got my kit after a few months waiting for my pre-order to be shipped, from Hobby Search in Japan. The kit looks like this. This it appears to have all the parts needed to open or droop to depict landing or takeoff configurations, as well as the option for in flight mode, for which a very nice stand is also included. This build will start kind of slowly, as I am just completing a couple of home remodeling projects, and have company coming at the first of the month, and the garden beckons, etc. But I will try to move along as much as I can, for the near future. See you later, Ed
  2. Hello all, Here is my entry for this GB - Hasegawa's 1/48 E/A-18G built as an F/A-18F, of VFA-213 'Black Lions' during their 2017 cruise in support of Operation 'Inherent Resolve.' AJ 204, BuNo 166639 dropped 110 bombs during the cruise and was one of the jets seen with the huge payload of 10x GBU-32 JDAMs. So of course I have to load my model with that payload! I'm using the EA-18G boxing as it comes with the late style ECS pipes already incorporated to the fuselage, which is much better than having to add aftermarket examples. Kit: Aftermarket: I'll be using an Aires cockpit, Pavla seats, GBU-32s and associated racks from Attack Squadron, Furball decals and Xmold seamless intakes (though I may just opt for Steal Beach intake covers). Decals: The decals by Furball are outstanding. The sheet also includes the VFA-87 jet that shot down a Syrian Su-22 in June 2017. I may enter this one to the GB at a later date... The jet itself: Photos courtesy of Navy.mil. Been wanting to do this scheme since I first seen the pictures of the 10 JDAMs! Dave
  3. My project for this group build will be Hasegawa’s F4U-5N Corsair in the colours of the Argentine Navy, 2nd Attack Squadron. Argentina used Corsairs for around 10 years retiring them in the mid 1960s when they were painted in very light gull grey/white scheme. There is evidence of them flying off ARA “Independecia” which had been HMS “Warrior”. The Corsairs were used in action during an attempted Army coup, attacking Army targets. I will using in addition to kit JT75, Aztec Decals, True Details wheels, Quickboost gun barrels and Eduard Superfabric WW2 USN seatbelts. Some initial photos. Thanks for looking. Grahame.
  4. It's been a bit of a struggle deciding which of the numerous carriers I have in the stash to build for this GB, but the 1:350 Hasegawa IJN Junyo has been extracted. On opening the box, I found all the Hasegawa add on packs that I'd forgotten about. Will probably need the full time of the GB to build, but in for a penny and all that. Will take pics later.
  5. I wasn’t on the list but hope it’s ok to join with this little badger.
  6. A “TOMCATS” Harrier

    Hello Everyone ... This is my latest build. Hasegawa's AV-8b Night attack Harrier. I opted to build mine as a VMA-311 “Tomcats” Hi-viz. Originally had planned on doing a Blacksheep Harrier but the Decals just didn't work out. The cockpit is an Aries pit. This thing almost cost me my mojo, however I persevered. There were horrible gaps everywhere especially the LERX’s. I had to use 40 thous. Plastic sheet to fill the gaps. If anyone has built one of these knows the forward fuselage is seperate from the rest and connects with essentially a plastic nipple glued in the front of the fan face. Well mine didnt it was about 1/4” to short to connect. So I actually had to drill a hole and connect the two halves with a wood screw of the proper length. That being said I opted to not gove up. And cranked out this. The Aries set comes with a complete pit, bangseat, and a few other bits n pieces. One of which is the Det cord in the canopy so I installed that. It still needs the two pitot’s, Yaw vane, and a little weathering but I’m calling this done. Hope you like it and as usual. Any Questions ? Comments ? Or jokes ? Please feel free to comment.

  7. Good night guys, I bought this model on Facebook this Thursday, and went to pick it up today to a reunion of plastic modellers. I plan to build this Fw 190A-5 as Walter Nowotny´s aircraft (the other option is for Egon Meyer) while using Eduard´s painting instructions. Decals are of the old Hasegawa style, with an ivory colour, just like the ones in their Japanese Army boxing of this aircraft. I´ll post the progress of the build as soon as I begin, most likely tomorrow.
  8. Hello there, this is my P-40E from Hasegawa OOB, i used mainly Vallejo and Tamiya Paints, the model is brush painted. Also this is my first go at chipping, i used Vallejos chipping medium and it worked pretty well. Well, it got a little bit heavy in the end, but i kinda like it. Also my first go with oils for streaks etc. By the way, i´m still figuring out the photographing part.... Hope you like, Cheers
  9. I remember when I first built Academy´s Bf 109E-3 in 1:48, that the tailplane struts were molded too long and the forward bulkhead had to be trimmed quite a lot to allow for a good fit between the fuselage and the wing. Both issues were solved, the first one by cutting the struts in half and the second one doing what I did above. When I bought Hobbycraft´s Ha 1112 "Buchón" with decals for the BoB movie, it also came with too long struts, which had to be cut in half and trimmed. After that, I made the connection between both companies. Some months ago, I was checking kit´s instructions, and I came across Hasegawa´s Bf 109E instructions, and they were the same as the ones that came with the Academy kit, and I assume the same with the Hobbycraft kit. TL.DR, my question is, who copied who? And if Hasegawa got copied, does that mean the Hasegawa Bf 109E tailplanes struts are too long and it´s a factory defect? If its a factory defect, I´ll go and buy the Airfix kit or the Pegasus Hobbies one. I hope you guys can help me with this question.
  10. My second Fw 190, I was able to not break anything this time, and correct a molding error Hasegawa had made on their right hand fuselage (the area designed to take the mounting tab of the right hand wing has too much plastic, and if it´s not corrected will end up with a step in the right fuselage/wing assembly. I removed plastic with a sandpaper and the Xacto until the fuselage sat flush with the wing). The decals were of the old Hasegawa style I´ve read so much, of an ivory colour, but they conformed perfectly to the panel lines and over a mottle with too much paint. Next time I won´t add mottling where the decals go.
  11. Hasegawa´s Fw 190A-5/U7 kit 09976 built as Hermann Graf´s regular A-5 because I didn´t dare to use the resins included. I managed to remove a chunk of the wing early on the build, break the right side´s lightning bolt and part of the white trim on one of the tulips. While building the kit, I thought the only difference between Graf´s regular A-5 and his later U7 was only the cowling, painted entirely in yellow with the high altitude intakes, but it turned out that the A-5 didn´t have the outer cannons, and these were added to the kit. I was so fucused on the paint scheme that I didn´t realise the difference in armament. The model was brush painted with Revell Aqua 15/40/45/49/69/47 (RLM 04/70/02/65/74/75).
  12. Hasegawa 1/200 Boeing 737-200

    I've decided to drag another box out of the stash, in this case the Hasegawa 1/200 double kit of the 737-200. Rather than the kit's decals for ANA, old and new, I'll be using the Flightpath Dan-Air and GB Airways sheets. I've built this kit previously in the early 80's, and recall that it was a quick and easy build, so will be a good time filler for my main entry (Monarch -800). Dave
  13. As promised at the end of this project's Work In Progress here are pictures of my Stratojet conventional bomber in ' operational service ' . Change of Squadron colours from red to blue. Scratchbuilt MD-3 power trolley and 1/144 Boeing WB-50D Weatherfortress in background. Scratchbuilt MD-3 trolley. I was going to buy a resin kit of it but they were unavailable/out of stock so I decided to make my own from plastic card and plastic rod. I found the wheels in my spares box, they are the bogie wheels from an Airfix Panzer IV. Landing light in front of engine pod is hand painted. Windscreen wiper added. Thank you for viewing. cheers, adey
  14. Just finished. Absolute dog of a kit, not too sure if it was me or the kit, maybe a bad run, but it fought me all the way. Poor fit in many places including the radiator, wings to fuselage and cockpit pieces. I was very close to giving it up at many times but I'm happy in the long run I didn't. Build OOB with the exception of a QB seat and True Details wheels. Thanks for looking.
  15. #5/2018 When German bomber pilots converted to the 262, they started to train on old trainers and biplanes, then usually moved on to 109s before they got to fly the Schwalbe. Partly these 109s were also used for combat with the KG(J)s. Sadly there is only one pic of "white 4" that shows it after it was shot down. In earlier years this machine was designated as a G-10. But there is a partial Werknummer known which is from an Erla G-14 block. Then there is discussion if it´s a normal G-14 or a G-14/AS. My dad went for a G-14. On the pic you can see a sharp edged light grey quadrant on the fuselage side in front of the cockpit. https://translate.google.at/translate?hl=de&sl=cs&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.leteckabadatelna.cz%2Fhavarie-a-sestrely%2Fdetail%2F534%2F&sandbox=1 That was usually the case when the bulge there was removed, either by mechanics or by force, like here: https://me109.info/display.php?from=site〈=de&auth=e&name=version_display&fotonummer=12757 Build thread here: Hasegawa kit with Cutting Edge decals, Gunze and Tamiya acrylics, EZ Line for antenna wire DSC_0001 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0002 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0003 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0004 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0005 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0006 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0007 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0008 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0009 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0010 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0011 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0012 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0013 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0014 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0015 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0017 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0018 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr

    I saw this scheme on a 1/48 build on another forum and was really taken with it. This is the 1/72 Hasegawa kit, a really straightforward and enjoyable kit.
  17. QF-104A

    Intended for the Starfighter STGB but finished a few days past deadline - build here An old mould Hasegawa F-104J which started out as a build in Japanese colours with some scratch building in the cockpit and wheel wells. Unfortunately the near 40 year old decals fell to pieces (I know. Foolish of me to think they’d do otherwise). Kit was halfway toward the shelf of doom (or the bin) when I decided to see what I could do from spare bits and bobs of decals. Some modifications to change a F-104J into a Q-104A and some scrabbling around the internet for references and here we have it as per (the resolution isn’t great but that gave me some leeway for improvising with my cobbled together decals) http://www.916-starfighter.de/916starfighter/pics/camo/55-2957 QF-104A 52957 AFSC Eglin 1964.jpg History (& fate) here http://www.i-f-s.nl/f-104-miscellaneous/qf-104-drones/
  18. I am a big fan of Japanese twin engine bombers and the Nell in particular I think is a great looking aircraft. Build was usual Hasegawa - perfect fit and no dramas to speak of. Paints used were Vallejo Japanese set for top and Mr Color for underside. In the cabinet: With his IJN friends....
  19. Good morning to all! I'm glad to present my last work... a restoration of an old Hasegawa A-4 that I built ten years ago. I decided to put it back to workbench due to the "crack" of the fuselage: 21616109_10210113589216277_2086911637920727775_n by valerio, su Flickr While I was at it, I scratchbuilt a new UHF dorsal hump (the one in the Hasegawa kit is wrong in dimensions and shape) using the cutting plotter: A-4SU Restoration_11 by valerio, su Flickr A-4SU Restoration_10 by valerio, su Flickr There was other details to fix, like a small naca intake on the main right engine intake, but the model was almost assembled and was very difficul to add this new parts. This is the final result! the decals are from Miliverse - many thanks to Mark (the owner) for his advice and pics!

  20. From the Tintin book 'The Red Sea Sharks'. It's the Hasegawa 1/72 Mossie kit with (heavily modified) Blue Rider decals. Depicting it in flying mode meant closing the undercarriage doors, which required a lot of filling/sanding. The only other deviation from the kit instructions was the re-configured nose gun arrangement, and I added Skut the pilot. My figure painting ability is – appropriately – comical, but he looks OK under glass.
  21. Second kit off the workbench this month; this is the mount of Japanese Army ace, Captain Yoshio Yoshida from mid 1945: FredT
  22. Hi all, Here are some (quite a few actually!) pictures of my latest build, it's Hasegawa's well know 1/48 F-104 Starfighter finished in the markings of 202 Hikotai when playing the role of an aggressor for one of their annual Air Combat Meets. These ACM's have produced some very nice and unusual colour schemes and it was difficult to decide which one to build, suffice to say that there will be a few more in the future. Anyway here are the pictures. Here is a link to the WIP and whilst you are there have a look at the other great builds going on in the GB. Thanks for looking in and all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Craig.
  23. Tropical Hellcat

    Hello Everyone ... Been busy over in the group builds lately but i havent forgotten that i build things with wings. I’ve been finishing up some models in my down time from the group build stuff. This is Hasegawa’s F6F Hellcat which i started last fall but just got around to finishing yesterday. I chose to do it in the markings of a Hellcat from VF-33 on Espirtu Santo in late 1943. I found the marking scheme while looking at an Eduard Hellcat, and yes i have a photo as well. Though I didn't have exact markings i was able to find spares in the same style. So without further talk I present to you my Hellcat. Heres a photo of the cockpit during the build. And for those that are curious, heres the photo from WW2.🔺 I truly hope everyone like this, and as usual please feel free to leave comments, questions, or jokes. Have a great modeling day. Dennis 🔺* not sure if this is public record so i will state the ownership rights belong to others. I only use them for informational purposes. If i have to i will remove them.
  24. Finished this over on the KUTA X GB, was started over 25 years ago, a little bit of the story can be read in the GB. Only addition to kit parts were Eduard fabric belts. Finished in Vallejo ModelAir colours, Alclad II gloss varnish with Vallejo Matt top varnish. Techmod decals were not the best I've used, very thin but brittle.
  25. Another Beaufighter. To complement the versions from Tamiya (Mark's), Airfix (John's) and Frog (Steve's), I am going for the Hasegawa kit. As Hasegawa kits are just a tad expensive, I decided to use one that I had in the stash from a few years' back - a combo from Operation Overlord. This is the box top:- The Spitfire will be kept for another occasion..... These are the sprues:- And the transparencies sprue:- Luckily, this boxing includes the metal hedgehog exhausts (which many of the Hasegawa kits don't have). I am going to try my hand with some aftermarket accessories for this build (first time I have ever done a resin cockpit set!) And yes, I realise that not a lot will be seen....but I will know it will be there (as will anyone reading this thread...!) As the title indicates, I am going to finish this kit with more unusual decals - in Israeli colours, on the familiar British desert camo. This is one of four Beaufighters that were smuggled out from the UK to the newly formed state of Israel, in 1948, and were used quite effectively for some months against invading arab forces. The desert camo was because the aircraft were purchased on the basis that they were to be in a film, a ruse used to procure the war surplus planes. They were flown out from an RAF airfield in Haddenham, Oxfordshire, supposedly to fly to Scotland for the filming, but instead flew on to Europe, and then on to Israel, before anyone realised what was going on. This particular aircraft, one of two involved from Israel's 103 Squadron, was shot down in an attack on the Eqyptian-held fortress of Iraq-El-Suweidan in the Negev on October 20th 1948. More in a day or two..... Philip
