  1. Ready to return to the jet age! Hasegawa F-15C. Decals from the Bullseye Desert Storm Eagles set. I haven't decided which plane yet, but it will be one of the air-to-air victory machines.
  2. Hi all ! Thanks very much for my acceptance in this group build . As discussed with modelling minion , I'll start posting my WIP today but I actually started my build a few months ago. So , don't think I'm a fast builder since I'm a very slow builder indeed . The model : As usual for most of our kits , let's start with the bang seat . My A-4F his equipped with an Escapac IC-3 ( black in this case ) and I will represent it with it's security on ( pilots call it the headknocker !!!! ) in other words with it's headkno
  3. Hello all Picked up this ancient Hasegawa M-24 Chaffee from ebay for a quick build. I didnt think it was a commonly available kit these days but since I picked it up I keep seeing newer reissues for sale. I love the box art, the kit itself was largely in good condition, an easy build and the rubber band tracks didnt give much hassle. However the decals were toast they just came apart after soaking. I had to raid a few other kits for allied stars, not sure the bow one is correct however it was on before I noticed. The name Bronco came from a skytrex set of B
  4. Time I picked this up again (as several of you have hinted in not entirely subtle ways of late...) It's been 6 months since I last did anything to this model, so some of you might not even be aware of it. If so, I hope you have some spare time, because if you are really interested you have a mere 103 pages of build log to get through... "Fill yer boots" as they say in the Navy. The original build has already walked through: a. the back story (I ditched this aircraft in July 1988, flying from Ark Royal just outside the mouth of the Med); b. t
  5. Here is my 1:72 Eurofighter Typhoon FGR.4, ZJ949 "H", No. 1435 Flight Royal Air Force, RAF Mount Pleasant, Falkland Islands, 2015. Hasegawa kit, which is a bit disappointing for the "best 1:72 Typhoon kit on the market" - yes, it's nice molded and quite accurate, but have some annoying fit issues and only "in-flight" configuration of engine nozzles. Nothing that you expect from 2012 Hasegawa kit priced about 30 GBP. Small Eduard brass for the cockpit, Reskit exhaust nozzles and Pavla MB Mk.16A ejection seat have been added. Painted mostly with Gunze C334 "Barley Grey". Decals are m
  6. Against my better judgement I'll start one here right at the end. The kit was already started (barely) by the previous owner, then I suspect got frustrated with the fit of the resin cockpit (there appears to have been a prior attempt too). I picked the kit up from a yard sale at a hobby shop for a paltry $10. Hopefully nothing critical is missing. There is a bunch of resin bits.....some decent, some not so much. Not sure what all I'm going to use but it will give me some options to pick through. Anyways, here is the starting gate.
  7. My placeholder for PACAF's contribution; 3rd TFW F-4E flying into theatre from Turkey. A small detachment of six planes which left theatre to the boneyard. Hasegawa special edition boxing of '91(?) moulding which was going cheap at LHS many years ago, AM decals, seats, pod, bombs and masks. I have plenty of references, some below, but none answer questions about pod; according to www.dstorm.eu they flew with AN/ALQ-131 in front left Sparrow well: Are pods O/D green or dark grey? How did they attach to Sparrow well in reality? How should I attach them on my model
  8. Well seeing as how I am running this show I thought I had better get my build thread started! Having a few A-4 kits in the stash and quite a few decal sheets to choose from I thought I would build something a little more unusual and the fact that this is the 30th anniversary of the Gulf War made my choice a simple one, a Kuwaiti KU. The ironic thing is that this is the one operator that I don't actually have any markings for! But when you see how few markings they actually carried this becomes far less of a problem as the only national markings carried are a small national flag on
  9. I came across the decals on ebay and just had to buy them, so my entry is a Brazilian Navy AF-1 in the "15 Years" Anniversary Scheme. As I understand it, the Brazilian Navy Skyhawk's were ex-Kuwaiti Air Force A-4KUs, which were modified A-4Ms. Hasegawa has boxed version of both the Brazilian and Kuwaiti aircraft, but was unable to find either. My starting point will be the Hasegawa A-4M. Luckily the decal instructions list the changes you need to make to the nose and fin to build the AF-1. And finally my references and some
  10. Here's my first project for this GB, a Hasegawa Lancaster in Rescue mode! Will be done OOB apart from Pavla intakes and CMK post war treaded tyre wheels. Any recommendations for the Orange is welcome please! The fuselage band is included as a decal but I will just airbrush that as I don't fancy trying to match the colour! The book doesn't show any real variation in the Aluminium panelling but I may add some slightly different shades here and there just to break up the overall effect, we'll see how it goes. Davey
  11. Hi everyone! I decided to start something new on the side and get off the F-16 I am building for a while because I am getting a bit burnt out with it to be honest. I decided to start something fresher and I thought simpler.... naive I am!! So I decided to start with the Hasegawa Mig-27 Flogger D in the 1/72: This particular release is from 2003 although I am suspecting it comes from an old old kit as a quick search in Scalemates suggests. Also the combination of raised and depressed panel lines suggests. Furthermore there some significant flash in the kit pointing to a worn out mold. So
  12. Hi guys. Here's my first build in 20 years and first attempt at using an airbrush. I don't really know what I'm doing so any advice, feedback and constructive criticism is apreciated Scalemates Project link Scalemates WIP gallery Practice install piece Press fit into place
  13. With my Halifax almost done bar a flat coat and with 2 more weeks in the GB I thought I would have a go at something that stays on the ground. Let's see how I go with this one, 1/72 scale to keep it simple and small. Decals are from a South Australian producer, DekLs who has included every RAAF tender in the sheet. I just need to decide which base's tender to build.
  14. Hi For my new build I decided to make a model for a friend. I let him the choose of the subject and he choosed the A6M Zero. Like he prefere the "light grey" scheme, I proposed him the A6M2 version When I searched a model, it is a suprise to find only few model by the kit maker for this early war version. In the 1/48th scale I find only two kit ; the old Tamiya who have more 30 years old and the Hasegawa kit Because the Hasegawa have more details than the Tamiya kit I choosed it. I start the kit with the cockpit I glued the panel side
  15. Hello ! I'm in ! just have to finish a P-38 next week and i'll join you with my third haseg scooter in nineteen years. The first one The second one Usually I do not make several edits of the same plane. But this kit being what it is, a real gem, and this plane beeing what it is, a pure badass, this will be a real pleasure to build here a M version in lowiz colours (still have to choose the one, surely VMA311). Some goodies will be added : Aires cockpit and wheels bays, RES wheels and Furball decals from "Lo V
  16. After having a look through the stash for a suitable subject for this GB I decided to select this Hasegawa boxing of the A-7E. I have ordered some decals for the Blue Hawks aircraft. I have also ordered some pre coloured etch to detail the cockpit, but I still need to source some weapons to hang underneath. More information about the Corsairs deployment and hence the idea for my choosing this as a subject for the group build can be found in the link below. https://www.historynet.com/gulf-war-the-corsairs-last-hurrah.htm And here are the box and contents sho
  17. I read a review of this kit that stated it was somewhat poor and lacking detail apart from the steel wheels. Unfortunately the review appears to be right. There is no weld joint detail on the hull or the turret and what detail there is seems quite soft and rounded. The black marks are my initial mark-up for scribing the weld joints because, yes, I'm going to try and build it rather than using the wheels on a Revell Panther as suggested by the above mentioned review. The supplied tyred wheels will be useful for hanging on my Dragon and Revell Jagdpanthers as stowed spares. Also, the
  18. Hello! This is my recent project, a nice kit of this iconic jet. It’s an old toll, and it shows it in some ways, but it also can be built into a nice model . Except fot the canopy masks, everything OOB. All my references showed these USAF birds, in the late eighties and early nineties were kept relatively clean, being the opposite of the Navy. So, the weathering was kept to a minimum. All decals were fine. Gunze paints and oils were used. Hope you enjoy. Cheers!

  20. Hi, Anybody who has seen my builds in the last few GB will know that I usually enter quite a few - so far there has only been one where I entered just a single plane, but this GB was beginning to look like it would be another. It is not that I don't have appropriate kits in my stash - Jaguar, Tornado GR1, and F3, F-14, F-15E, F-16, F/A-18, A-6E, EA-6B, C-130 and so on, but like quite a few people I am finding this protracted lockdown bad for my bank balance. I certainly won't be buying any more kits in the near future, but even getting appropriate Gulf War decs for the ones I have
  21. Ki.84 - Hasegawa 1/48 Scale with BrenGun Resin Japanese Fuel Cart ( 1/48 ) The Diorama is made using Green-Line Grass ( highly recommended ) and diorama accessory by Bren Gun . This is an interesting and not often released Japanese aircraft accessory. For you Japanese scale modellers with a Tamiya/Hasegawa Zero, Raiden, George etc in 1/48, this little kit will provide a wonderful addition to your presentation of those aircraft, adding that extra level of interest. I would recommend this to the Japanese air modeller and to anyone wanting a quick, fairly s
  22. Douglas A-4G Skyhawk N-13 155062, VF-805 HMAS Melbourne. Hasegawa with CTA decals. Thanks for looking. AW
  23. Here is my latest completed built, the Hasegawa kit #09837 of the Draken (Dragon) J-35J. The kit comes with lovely decals to build one of two special marking aircraft so I chose this one as it kept the underlying camo scheme. This is a great kit that goes together with a minimum of fuss.
  24. Evening, all! After building on and off since first lockdown(!) I've finally managed to finish my Hasegawa Harrier, built as GR.9 ZG511/82 as she was during her last deployment to Kandahar. This build was a real labour of love. It's still the best big wing Harrier in this scale in my opinion, but she really fights you along the way. The end result is worth it though. I threw lots of aftermarket goodies at this one. I felt that the subject was worth the effort. Aires cockpit (butchered to more resemble a Brit Harrier) Eduard MB Mk.12
  25. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time. Thank you craig @modelling minion for coming up with the idea and kindly hosting My offering will be no doubt a popular kit here; the hasegawa 1/48 (wearing it’s M-guise in my case.) I have an aires resin office to play with, i’ve never tried a resin cockpit before so that’s something to get stuck into. Then I have these devil dog scooter decals on their way. I’m going for a low-viz M scheme. (not sure which one yet... decisions decisions...) To load up on weaponry (scooters look gre
