I have really no idea why I’m starting this one, other than it gives me an excuse to start another series of future projects……. and I blame @helios16v for this!! I have a few JASDF aircraft in the stash and have recently found some amazing digital schemes for the F-15J an F-4EJ Kai (both I have in the stash…sort of for the F-4EJ), so digital decals sets have been ordered for both. I have never thought of building a F-2A but @helios16v as always has led me astray and I’m off down the rabbit hole..... not that that is hard to do! The model was from Japan and actually really cheap as well….. the crumpled box was a free extra!! Luckily everything was all ok inside. The decal I found on the DXM site….along with plenty of others….they’re on the way too!! I would have loved to have had these in mask form, but looking at them I might have been a bit much for even my sanity, so decals it is. I may need to raid the spares box for weapons, as usual Hasegawa don’t supply anything other than tanks and AAM’s. There is no guarantee this will be completed in this build, but it will be for sure over the coming months.
Well I tried but the budget just wasn't there for it. So Im going with an F-2 instead of the A.N.G. F-16 I had hoped for. The markings are of the 3rd Squadron, the longest serving Squadron in JASDF history. Somehow I goofed and didn't get the third sprue in the photographs. Its there trust me. I will snap a photo and post it later when I can open the box up. I will be doing the single seat F-2A as the few F-16’s I’ve done have all ben two seaters. I happen to love the JASDF SEA SCHEME. It is just one of the coolest looking camouflage schemes. Ive done an F-104 in it and plan on an F-4 and F-1 at some point in the scheme. Ive even considered doing a Whif of an F-22 and F-35 in the scheme I like it that much. Please feel free to ask questions, post comments or add thoughts. Dennis
