1/72 Hasegawa S-3B Viking VS-38

Recommended Posts

  • Kit manufacture: Hasegawa N° 00537
  • Scale: 1/72
  • Type: S-3B Viking
  • Extras used: None OOB
  • Paints and colours used: Gunze Aquous H308, H337
  • Other info: 

So I've been building this in the background and thought I'd share it for some feedback. The kit is pleasant but shows it's age with some flash and a few fit issues. I also managed to make myself some problems but in the end I think it look the part.

I scratch build the refuelling pod from a fuel tank and a refuelling pod from a Revell Tornado, it isn't accurate but good enough for me.

Also I have never tried to weather a raised panel line kit so thought I'd just go with some Flory Dark Dirt, it has done the trick.
 

Anyway enough waffle so here is the finished kit:

The only other kit in 1/72 is the Airfix one, which is also quite a nice kit. There is the ESCI kit in 1/48 which was also boxed by AMT.

I love it!

The type is moderately familiar to me but, must say, it looks like a baby jet that hasn't fully grown yet.

Excellent build.

Love the subtle panel lines and all the stencilling.

Brilliant :clap:
