  1. This kit, bought from Kit Rescue at IPMS Avon show earlier this year, costing £10.
  2. This will be my entry for the 'special schemes' section of this GB. The Hasegawa kit looks pretty nice in the box, it's a special edition that gives you 2 kits and the decals for both the blue and yellow aircraft. I will be doing the blue one and maybe if there is time the yellow.
  3. Having finished a Revell FAA F4U (bloody over-complicated thing!) and my Sword Gannet, I took a few weeks off to contemplate what was next. Thought I'd take longer to think about it, but I went up to have a tidy of the 'bench' and whilst I was there had a look at the stash. Narrowed down to the following candidates.. I was very close to doing the lifeboat but the recent Top Gun hype has put me in a bit of a US Navy mood, so the Phantom won out in the end. That poor Lightning, it keeps getting so close to the top of the pile, only to be cruelly denied. Maybe next time.. Rather than the Sundowners on the front, I'm doing this as one of the alternative schemes, inspired by the lovely, well thumbed, volume Such a good book! Obligatory sprue shot (although I've hidden most of it!). I'd shied away from this for a while because I really didn't fancy painting the gloss white undersides. Now I have an airbrush I don't have that excuse. This will be a test, though, as I've so far struggled to get decent gloss finishes with the airbrush. Have tried pledge and Mr Color GX112 but I never get the high gloss (and smooth) finish that I really want. Always ends up closer to Satin and a little rough feeling. Any tips most welcome! Not much achieved so far, just a few bits painted. Since the white and grey is hard to brush I'm going to break with tradition and spray the cockpit, wheel wells, intakes, drop tanks etc. I don't normally get the airbrush out for small things as I spend more time cleaning it that actually painting, but I think its necessary this time.. Wish me luck! Al.
  4. After a long pause, finally time for a new 190. Gonna do one of the early Jabos with the Mickey Mouse emblem.
  5. Back in 1990 when I was made redundant for the first time I had a bit of spare cash so bought a few kits including this. It has been in my stash ever since though apparently at some time I opened one of the bags and painted the 22 Rockeyes in OD - the yellow stripes will no doubt be a pain but at least it has them - the original version must have just pre-dated their weapons sets I guess which is good as I would have had to buy four of set II which would have cost at least as much as the ruddy kit, though having said they do not provide any air to air missiles and refer to the weapons sets for them - strange! The kit dates back to 1984 and was a modified release of Hasegawa's original F-15A or maybe their later C, but in 1988 they changed the parts and that is the boxing I have. I built the C I bought at the same time a couple of years back and it still has the early style of exhaust nozzles with the outer casing, but this has been modified to the later "exposed" type which look like they could be a bit of a fiddle to build - as Tim is building the very same kit I will be interested to see how he gets along with them! I expect this will be an OOB job, but I have said that many times before then changed my mind!. Pete
  6. After 2021 (link) newsletters, the Hasegawa news for January 2022. Source: http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/month/202201/ V.P.
  7. This is my entry for this group build. It will be an Israeli F15C from the Hasegawa kit that I bought about 1988-9. The kit decal sheet is for USAF aircraft, but I have an old Cutting Edge decal, which also details the airframe differences and an equally old Microscale decal sheet for the stencils, which on the Israeli aircraft were largely unchanged with just a few in Hebrew. As was typical for Hasegawa kits of the period, there are no weapons, and so these have been separately sourced as shown. The Pythons will need new pylons, which I think are going to be scratch built. There is a Dream model etch set that will tart up the cockpit and ejector seat quite nicely. Been on my to-do list for a while, and now seems a good time.
  8. Next off the shelf is the very old (maybe original?) boxing of the Hasegawa P-2H Neptune. I've washed the sprues and resin bits. Here they are drying amongst the Scout WIP. Soon to be joined by the Eduard bomb bay and general detail kits, the Aeroclub props and landing gear and PD Decals, amongst others. Not too many plastic parts but heaps of resin and etch. Lots of rescribing to do as everything is raised detail. I'll paint everything this week when the wife goes back to work as she hates the smell of enamel paint through the house!
  9. "Never merge with a Squalo." - Note found on the NATO TLP (Tactical Leadership Programme) bulletin board at Albacete In the 1980's, Italy decided to begin replacing the venerable F-104, and to its credit, it required three aircraft to do so: Tornado for strike, AMX for light attack, and the F-20 as an interceptor. Called 'Squalo' (shark) by its pilots, the F-20 protected NATO's southern flank for two and a half decades while quickly gaining a reputation for dogfighting prowess among allied air forces. This build represents an F-20M in a commemorative paint scheme and typical QRA configuration in its final year of service before being replaced with the Typhoon.
  10. Greetings from Italy. Just finished the Hobby 2000 (Hasegawa) Henschel Hs 129, a nice and enjoyable kit. The built is basically OOB. I just cut away control surfaces and flaps plus a bit of Aftermarket using Eduard internals and seatbelts. Instead of the usual Tamiya colours, this time I decided to go for Gunze and I have to say they are excellent stuff. Enjoy pictures and please feel free to comment. Cheers Andy
  11. Thanks for the reminder Dennis! I've been looking forward to building my Hasagawa f-15C for yonks! Here's the obligatory opening shots... Nice box art A bag of plastic bits to mess with AM goodies - I've been collecting for a while! Weapons and Crew (seeing as there are none in the box ) Reading material Decals I fancy this plane; 11 February 1991, this F-15C, piloted by Captain "Gunga" Dingee, scored an aerial victory against an Iraqi AF helicopter during Operation Desert Storm. I'll be starting soon but at the moment I'm stuck in a Sea Harrier cockpit in the Falkland Islands (Falklands War 40th Anniversary GB). Cheers,
  12. I'll be attempting to do justice to this kit, once the build gets underway: I really like the look of the Japanese graphics, let's hope the decals work well! It will be a straight OOB build (seems to have some resin exhaust nozzles), with the addition of some paint masks.
  13. Time to jump in! Due to work/illness/travel/life/winter I haven't done much modelling of late, so this should be a good motivation booster, and hopefully a worthy (if modest) contribution to the GB. This is a really neat little kit. Mine has a little bit of flash, but looks like it will build up really nicely. I'll do it out of the box, hoping for a relatively quick, fun build. My subject will be an Okinawa-based 207 Squadron jet, wearing a (trial?) blue and grey air superiority scheme from circa 1984, using the kit decals. Colour pic here. Something I learned doing some reading on the weekend, 207 Sqn's tail markings featured the Southern Cross, with Okinawa the only place in Japan from where it is visible. (Wikipedia says the squadron disbanded in 1986 with the retirement of the F-104J.) Few aircraft could fly faster and higher than the aptly-named Starfighter, making it perfectly-suited for service with the JASDF, which almost uniquely among F-104 operators used the type largely as an interceptor - just as Kelly Johnson intended. My build won't set any speed or time to climb records, but it should be fun! Gerard
  14. I had 2 Hasegawa/Revell 1/48th Phantom FGR.2 kits. I just completed the Revell kit as a green/gray camo jet with 23 Squadron circa 1975. Next up is another FGR.2 as a Falklands-deployed 23 Sqd jet in the later gray camo. I bought the kits second hand, one of which included a lot of aftermarket sets. Included were the Aires FGR.2 cockpit set, Aires engine nozzle set, Aires RAF Phantom wheel set, a True Details SUU-23 gun pod, and a set of Airdoc RAF Phantoms in Germany decal set. For this kit I plan on using the cockpit, nozzles, and wheels. The kit instructions are for the original boxing I guess, but the kit box is a newer release. I will use the XtraDecals 23 Squadron History decals for a Falklands FGR.2. Kits decals for the stencils. On these kits, one of the first things that I do is glue the underwing cover plates into the holes where the FG.1 catapult hooks would go. Much easier to align them from the back side. I then glue the wing top pieces on. I also glued the nose cone, external fuel tanks, and the kit SUU-23 gun pod together. The True Details gun pod has some nice features, but the vent slots near the nose were messed up, looking kind of rough. There are a couple of sink marks on the kit pod, but they will be easy to deal with. This is the first time I will try to cram the Aires cockpit set into a kit fuselage. I've searched the web for hints and clues on how to make this work and have found some good advice. First off was to cut the main parts from their mold blocks. Circled in red is the air refueling door, also glued in place. One requirement for the Aires cockpit is to remove all interior fuselage molded on detail and the air refueling probe well bump on the inside of the right rear cockpit sidewall. Once removed, with a Dremel tool sanding bit, I also glued the outer door for the AAR probe from the inside. In this kit, since it was pre-owned, many parts were removed from the sprues, or the sprues were cut down. The AAR door was attached to a part of the sprue, but was otherwise loose in the box. At some point it got bent so has a small section that sits proud of the fuselage side. Easy enough to sand it flush later. This will be a slow starter with the cockpit. Ugh.
  15. Greetings everyone! I present to your attention a “Hasegawa” kit F-15C in 1/72 scale. For my building I chose an aircraft with the board number 79-036 as of 1984, when this aircraft was based at Bitsburg Air Base in Germany. The kit was built in 2016. During the build process, I used the following aftermarket: 1. Photo-etched “Eduard” № 72398 2. Photo-etched “Airwawes” № 7209 3. Exhaust nozzles “Aires” № 7170 4. Ejection seat “Quickboost” ACES II № QB72022 5. Cockpit light “BobTaurus” № RT72041 6. “TwoBobs” decal № 72-099 7. AIM-9M/L Sidewinder “Brassin” № 672 037 8. Angle attack sensors “Master Model” № AM-72-008 9. The “Academy” F-15C kit was used as a donor for some details. Below I want to show some of the building steps in more detail. Air intake channels “Hasegawa” does not provide air intake channels, so I integrated it from the “Akademy” kit. Wing Fins Cockpit Front wheel bay Pylons and armament Main landing gear and wheel bays The main landing gear were almost self-made from metal needles, different kinds of plastic, some PE parts, tin and wire. Nose landing gear As the main landing gear, the nose landing gear were almost self-made. Other elements As you can see, all elements of the model have been subjected to great improvements. Building took about two years. I hope the viewing was interesting. Best wishes Dmytro aka DimaADA
  16. Hi... Another GB that fits my stash! After finishing my F-104 in the century series GB (which at the end added another F-104 kit, and F-101 into my stash).. I took to the stash and found 2 F-15E's, a F-15C (early version), a F-15J, and F-15I.. all Hasegawa. Seeing the challenge others face in this GB, I think I'll join with either or both of these; With both still in the plastic bag, I think I will start with the F-15J with less parts count and less modification required... So... Cleared to go? Cheers, Mario
  17. Finished this kit yesterday. The model came with bonus resin tyres from Hasegawa, which also came with the regular plastic ones. I used Revell Aqua colours and several brushes to complete this aircraft. The original kit decals were completely unsuable, cracked beyond redemption. Luckily I was able to count from my spares box to complete this paint job.
  18. Hello all, After almost 6 months of work, we finally finished our SBD-3 Dauntlesses. This was a group build with my dad, who built the aircraft flown by Lieutenant Commander Wade McClusky, I built the aircraft flown by Richard Halsey Best “B1”. We used the 1/72 Hasegawa kits that were re-boxed by Hobby 2000. We replaced the dive brakes with Eduard photo-etched and added detail to the cockpit using the Eduard set too. My kit is pretty much out of the box; to see if it would add any value my dad did some other modifications to his kit: he replaced the kit canopy with a RobTaurus vac-form canopy, scratch-built oil coolers and machine guns, model master gun barrels, photo-etched bomb racks, Brassin bombs, scratch-built bombing view window, reskit modified resin wheels (smoothed out) and scratch-built window air flow deflectors. Both kits were painted with AK real colors acrylics (the underside colour was corrected). The decals are a mix of the ones from the Hobby 2000 reboxing, Aeromaster decals and some other spares. We had a lot of fun building the dauntlesses (but it was quite complex), so we hope you enjoy looking at them. Comments welcome! Underside of McCluscky's aircraft. Underside of Best's aircraft.

  19. #1/2022 When my dad started the Aleutian P-38 last year, I thought wouldn´t it be nice if it had some company? So he built a P-40K. Sadly 1/48 decals for this theatre are rare and we didn´t want to do a usual tigerhead scheme. Finally found a nice scheme from DK Decals. Used the Hasegawa kit, EZ line for brake lines and antenna wires, seatbelts done with decals from the sparesbox, block tread tires from Ultracast. Had some problems attaching the rear windows. As most of the time my dad tried it first with Micro Klear. To avoid a visible bead, he only applied it sparsely. Therefore the windows fell out again. the he used plastic glue, which ate into the surface. Removed the windows again, sanded and polished them and tried it again with Micro Klear. Also had to do some repainting. All in all the rear window area doesn´t look that nice now. Painted the camo with Tamiya XF-53 Neutral Grey and a selfmixed olive. The DuPont painted replacement parts are done with AK Real Color Dark Earth and Dark Green.

  20. This kit, bought at a model show for £6 Instruction header. Options - I'm going for that Eagle on the tail. Parts. Unused metal seats leftover from an F-14, and various smart bombs. Walkaround
  21. Another Phantom from me, a Hasegawa 1/72 F-4S Phantom II, Eduard etched brass used in the cockpit but otherwise finished OOB and using the kit decals which were quite thick and didn't want to settle, weapons came from the spares box, finished with MRP and Tamiya paints. 1/72 McDonnell Douglas F-4S Phantom II by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr 1/72 McDonnell Douglas F-4S Phantom II by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr 1/72 McDonnell Douglas F-4S Phantom II by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr 1/72 McDonnell Douglas F-4S Phantom II by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr 1/72 McDonnell Douglas F-4S Phantom II by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr Enjoy.
  22. Hi all, built this as part of the F-5 STGB in a what-if ROCAF scheme. Decals are from Xtradecal, they're low-vis and are unfortunately lost somewhat in the grey scheme but the kit itself is fantastic. No issues with fit whatsoever and a nice level of detail for a small 1/72 kit, the ladders especially are a nice feature. And a few with my old HB F-5E kit in a ROCAF scheme... Thanks for looking in & check out the GB there's some fantastic builds going on!
  23. Hi Folks, Just finished this lovely Hasegawa kit. OOB except for the photo etched parts (mostly the wires) sold separately by the same company and the figures that came from the spare parts box (Tamiya I believe). Excellent fit, good details and handy decals. First time using the black basing technique and pretty satisfied with the results. I used mostly AK Real Colors for the model. All the best, Cris.
  24. If I did not already have more than enough P-3s built, it is time to add another. This is a dual build with my son, he works on AP-3Cs so he wanted to build a model of his aircraft. So I am tagging along, building one as well and helping him out with tips (he unusually builds and paints Warhammer) as he has not built an aircraft kit in about 15 years. I started with the cockpit, having built a few P-3s I had not done any real detail work on any of the cockpits, so with help from my SME I reconfigured the rear cockpit walls to more what they look like. I also added some crew for the spares box cannibalising them to get non-helmeted heads on them. Seat belts from an Eduard cockpit set that had been used on a previous model. This is what an unmodified cockpit looks like from my last AP-3C model. Next was the wings, CMDS fairings were fitted to the rear of the inboard engine nacelles, the wing tip sensor packs fitted and obligatory filling of weapon pylons mounting points. I also added support structure for the stand. Finally a the cockpit installed and test fit of major components
  25. Now that my USS Olympia build is winding down it's time for an airplane again. I grew up close to a Norwegian Air Force base housing the RNoAF 333sqdn P-3s, Hence I've always had a strong affinity for this plane. On Sep 13th 1987 one of the units P-3s collided with an Su-27 Flanker. This P-3 will be the subject of this build. The plane The incident as depicted on the boxart for a Trumpeter Flanker, incidentally my next build to join the P-3 on the shelf... The kit Got some aftermarket sets to add some detail. Planning on the plane being parked with the rear entry door closed but ladder attached, flaps down and bomb bay doors open. In addition I plan on recreating the damage to the props. I'll have the affected prop feathered with the engine covers open. Since I'm not planning on using the rear interior I'll use seats in the CMR set up in the cockpit instead. Well, at least all that is the plan...we'll see how it actually turns out. Ken
