  1. G'day all, Been lurking for a few years but this is my first WIP. I have added an Aires Cockpit, though TBH it probably doesnt need one, Brassin Exhaust and Master pitot. I'm using a Two Bobs Aggressor sheet and will be doing the 203rd Hikotai (Red & White) markings. Just buttoned it up and layed down some primer- a few spots to tidy up and then on to the paint. thanks for looking.
  2. Hi all With the Pembroke end, it's time to start a new project. This time I go to the other side of the world and choose a more modern plane : the U-125A of the JASDF air force. The Sword artbox are always very attractive and I bought several kit for them The first test fit show a kit who should not be too difficult to build.
  3. Hello Friends, Just finished the F-15DJ of the JASDF in the Aggressor Color Scheme of Sand, Brown and Black. Academy F-15E Strike Eagle kit has been used as a donor kit and built into this F-15DJ. The model is built OOB and no mods have been used. The paints used are locally available acrylic paints. It has taken me around 20 days to build this model and I feel that it still is incomplete. Specially the decals and the stencils. Due to the pandemic I haven't been able to get my hands on the Relevant F-15DJ Decals and Stencils. Thus for th
  4. Hi all. Our club theme this year for the annual QMHE show here in Queensland is two seaters and trainers. We're not limiting subjects to only aviation subjects but considering that we mostly build aircraft I've decided on a another jet subject for the display anyway! The more the merrier right??? This is the 1/48 Hasegawa Mitsubishi F-2B. I'm a big fan of the of the F-16 and seeing the F-2 is a close cousin, it was an easy decision to crack on with this build. Additional extras lined up for the build are Afterburner and DXM decals, Finemolds seat belts and pitot/static,
  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. Morning folks - I picked up on Ebay a 1980's Hasegawa 1:48 F4EJ and one of the colour schemes is an attractive splinter camo with a colour call out for H305 for the grey and 'blue black' for the darker colour. I wondered if anyone had a suggestion of the blue black colour? thanks Chris
  7. I will release 1/72 JASDF YS-11EB 3D fabricated kit soon. This kit is empty interior except for cockpit unfortunately because I have no data of inside. But landing gear is separable. This is a conversion kit of the YS-11A. Engine nacelle shape, props, fuselage windowm, antenna and mold arrangement is different. And there are radomes on top and under the fuselage.
  8. Time to narrow down my options for at least one build for this GB. The plan at the minute is to do one European and one Asian F-104 (although this may change!) and for the Asian one I have decided to go with an aircraft from the JASDF who were a major user of the type and had them on strength until 1986. The next problem is which JASDF one to do, a single seat J or a twin seat DJ. Both kits are unstarted as you can see below. And both come with very comprehensive and impressive decal sheets. Should be able to build every F-104 to serve wi
  9. 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.
  10. Hello everyone, Here's a playlist link to youtube of some videos of planes and helis. Andy will provide much better photos in a separate post but I'm contributing with some videos. The Helicopter landing vid is particularly good. Enjoy! Part of a three week spotting tour in Japan. Totally worthwhile since they practice daily. Today was coincidentally graduation day at the Akeno training base.

  12. Second in my double build, this will be my entry using the older ghost gray scheme. I had already done a Gulf War F-15 about a year ago and did not feel like repeating. Instead, I had in my stash this wonderful and colorful F-15J from Tac Meet 2013. Lots of lightning bolts. Awesome cartoon bear in the fins. This is Japanese creativity at its best! The kit will be built entirely OOP. First steps were the cockpit. I read somewhere that some of the JASDF Eagles kept their avionics bay in the original metallic emerald color so I will keep them as such. There is sadly, no equivalent in
  13. Hi, Want some wild colour schemes and bizarre partnerships? What about Bangladesh Let 410, Sri Lankan Kfir, Taiwanese B-24, Malaysian A-400, Myanmar MiG-29, South Korean Hawk, Communist Chinese La-11, Indian Navy Do.228, PLAAF Divine Eagle? And on, and on and on.....! Asian Air Arms SIG has been set up to enable modellers to access a huge resource of post-1945 military aircraft subjects from 26 Asian countries: Mongolia to the Maldives, and from Japan to Afghanistan. Huge website http://www.asianairarms.com offers thousands of photos, colour schemes, research, contemporary accounts,
  14. Afternoon folks - I have on its way an old Hasegawa 1:32 F104J and I am assuming the decals won't be of much use! I've had a quick look around and can't see who does aftermarket decals for Japanese Starfighters in 1:32 Can anyone point in the right direction? thanks Chris
  15. Ok so I'm a big fan of the Phantom and decided a few months ago to do a joint build of Israeli and Japanese F4's. I used the Hasegawa kits for both builds with aftermarket decals from Isra Decal and DXM (stencils). I used the original decals for the JASDF Phantom in the main and considering they were printed in 1986 they came out well. Eduard cockpit aftermarket was also used and Ised Mr Color, Tamiya and Alclad paints for both. I got a lot of help form members on here during the build so thanks for that. The Israeli F4 has a temporary 'load out' as I am awaiting some of the Hasega
  16. The last one I'll finish this year is another Sabre Dog. This one is a little different as it is a machine from the 3rd Air Wing of the JASDF,using a set of Flying Papa decals I found in a second hand F-86D I bought in the kit swap at Telford. Just a couple of photos a Photobucket is playing up as usual. Thanks for looking.
  17. F-15J Eagle 1:72 Platz JSDF Aircraft Series Since its introduction into service in 1974, the F-15 Mig Killer has developed a fearsome reputation as an air superiority fighter. With over 100 kills to its name, half of them being with the Israeli Air Force, not a single F-15 has been lost in air-to-air combat. Despite the introduction of more capable aircraft in the 21st century, there is still a place for the proven F-15 on the front lines such was the foresight in its design some 40+ years ago. The need for a replacement to the F-4 was identified in the mid 1960s to counter the threat
  18. Hi mates, Here's my plan for the F-4 Phantom II Group Build. I'm quite late in getting started due to working on a trio of 1:72 WWII fighters. They will have to be set aside so I can finish this new project in time. So here goes. I've always loved the anniversary scheme that Japan applied to one of their F-4EJ-KAI Phantoms - here is the only photo I have of the actual bird: After burrowing through my stash, I came up with the Revell of Germany F-4F kit in 1:72 scale, which just happens to be one of the best Phantom kits around, and one of the few in
  19. T-34 Mentor JASDF Trainer Aircraft PLATZ 1:144 The years following the end of WW2 were very unstable in the Far East, especially in Korea, and Japan needed to rebuild her forces for reasons of national defence. The need to re-establish a military force was becoming paramount and therefore the Japanese government authorised the formation of the Japanese Defense Force. This was later split into Army (JGSDF), Air (JASDF) and Maritime forces (JMSDF) with the USA providing T-6 Texan trainer aircraft in order for the Japanese forces to train new aircrew ready for defenc
  20. Hi all, This is my first post of a completed model on Britmodeller so please be gentle with me! It is also my first time using photobucket so I apologise in advance if you get lots of copies of the same picture. This is Italeri's CH-47 built and painted as a CH-47J of the JASDF. I think the camouflage makes it look completely different, which is what attracted me to it in the first place. I hope you all like the end result.
  21. Hi all, I have a question for the F-104 experts out there. What are the differences between the cockpits of the TF-104 and the F-104DJ? The reason I ask is because I'm thinking of using Aires' TF-104 1/48 cockpit in my Hasegawa F-104DJ. Any insight would be very much appreciated. Many thanks in advance!
  22. Kawasaki C-1 Hasegawa 1:200 The Kawasaki C-1 is a twin-engine cargo/transport aircraft built solely in Japan for the Japanese Air Self Defence Force (JASDF). The Japanese were still using outdated World War Two era Curtiss C-46 Commando transports as late as the mid-1960's and a replacement was needed to modernise the Japanese air force's airlift capability. A new aircraft requirement was issued to the major aircraft building companies and a consortium came forward with designs for a modern, short-range military cargo/transporter;
  23. Well the kit finally arrived from my good friend Lloyd in Arkansas, it took 20 days to get here, I guess it was held up by all the snow we had in the UK the other week. So no more dallying it's time to start. First the obligatory box top and sprue shots Lloyd had snipped a few parts from the sprue and put the wing halves together but she is well within the 25% limit. I'll be starting as per the instructions with the seat and cockpit
  24. F-86D Sabre Dog 'J.A.S.D.F COMBO' Hasegawa 1:72 In 1948 following an intelligence warning concerning Soviet long range bombers the USAF was prompted to accelerate the development of an all-weather interceptor to protect the US. This interceptor was to be based around the new 2.75 Mighty Mouse Folding Fin Aerial Rocket (FFAR). It was felt at the time that a salvo of such rockets would be more effective against a large bomber formation than cannon fire. These were fitted to the F-86D in a ventral tray which extended under the airframe. North American designed the interceptor around th
