  1. The distribution MO is very peculiar indeed, it looks like they did not provide the Chinese market at all. It's also much more expensive than their prior kits.
  2. Doesn't seem like a lot is special indeed but I do spy on those miniature pictures 4 new O sprues with bomb rack and TER as well as a B sprue with GBU-12s. Still can't make out any LAU-138 though. Perhaps the next D boxing will finally be complete.
  3. Thanks for all the positive comments! So have I, I usually skip the varnish before decals part! I'm not sure what happened here, either the paint is a different formula than the rest of their line, or perhaps it's just a matter of my coats being too thin. Either way, microsol just erased the paint back to the grey surfacer. A coat of gloss fixed that issue. The discoloration is visible in a couple places where I didn't apply the gloss evenly, like on the tail in front of the face.
  4. Thank you guys, glad you like it! This is indeed a striking scheme and the DXM decals really made it easy, if only time consuming.
  5. Hi there. Here is my latest model, a 1/72 Mitsubishi F-2A in a colourful 3SQ anniversay scheme. Built from the Hasegawa corresponding boxing. I had to order an aftermarket decal sheet as my kit decals had a green colour shift and Microsol destroyed my blue paint coat on application anyway. MrColor JASDF colour set, DXM decals, Eduard etch, Hasegawa 3D printed exhaust and minor cockpit scratch. Hope you enjoy the plane and stay safe!
  6. Thank you mates! Next one coming will be a GWH Delta.
  7. Thanks! The canopy has a half-hinge at the back and the kit provides a supporting rod. It's just resting on the triangular piece behind the seat for the purpose of the photos.
  8. It's easier to build and still looks like a Tomcat, but I wouldn't call it better. The Hasegawa has a big nostalgia factor for me so I'm biased though.
  9. Hello and welcome. Here's my first finished kit this year, Academy's new offering in a livery from circa 1984. A real pleasure to build despite the few little shortcomings. Academy #12563, Aires seats and exhausts, Reskit wheels. Hataka LGG over black surfacer. Decals from MYK/Furball/Hasegawa/kit. Duet pictures with a Hasegawa kit built in 2018.
