  1. Kit - 1:72 Revell (Hasegawa re-box). Paint - All acrylics, Tamiya & Lifecolour. Decals - Kit. Extras - None. Heinkel He 111H-6 5 / KG 4 'General Wever' Russian Northern Front Spring / Summer 1942 Revell's re-box of the (1:72) Hasegawa He111 finished in Tamiya & Lifecolour acrylics. Certainly not my best work, but as a cheap - very cheap, (14.00 euros at a toy-shop in Germany four years ago), a cheap paint
  2. Well there seemed to be something missing from the line up of this very impressive and very diverse GB, there's no Phantom's!! Can't have that in an Interceptors GB now can we, especially as she was first introduced into service as an interceptor for the US Navy. I won't be building a US Navy one though as I shall be building an F-4E. My choice is to build a USAF one from the 57th FIS based in Iceland in the ADC grey scheme. On to the kit itself. I shall be building the Hasegawa 1/48 kit which whilst not the newest or best around is still a good kit and I actually have one (okay maybe mor
  3. Hello, I haven`t done a build recently, so decided to join with the Revell boxing of the Hasegawa Mk9 Spitfire in /48th scale using a Brengun resin and etch conversion of a MkVII along with the DK decals. I haven`t decided on a scheme yet but have always liked the medium sea grey and PRU blue scheme for high altitude operations. So will undoubtedly go with one of those. Either MD120 "Spirit of Kent" or coded "PB". Thanks for looking... Grahame
  4. Hello, Begin of a new build, the Hasegawa F-104G, which will be a Zipper of the Danish air force with the faded, abused, green scheme. I have recently purchased the new Kinetic kit and the only difference is that Hasegawa has been litteraly bombing the kit with recessed rivets, which would be a blessing on any other kit, but the Starfighter skin was as smooth as a baby butt .... so , I have to fill in these rivet, especially on the tail and fin area. I first elected to use Mr. Surfacer, but the damn thingies won't fill, the Surfacer remaining on the rivet circ
  5. Hello all, Hot on the heels of my first entry for this GB, here and continuing the QRA theme, I'm throwing this one in the ring too. It's been gradually edging its way to the bench so I'll just have to give in and get it built. Hasegawa's 1/48 Phantom FG.1, marked as XV571 of 43 Squadron based at RAF Leuchars in the 1970s. 43 and 111 were the only frontline Squadrons that operated the FG.1 and formed the Northern QRA for 20 years in the case of 43 Squadron. I've already built an FGR.2 in the grey scheme, so this will be the camouflage grey/green. Kit:
  6. #26/2020 So, my dad has finished his third racecar this year after a decades long hiatus. Well, it´s no show winner but at least it is finished and didn´t go to model heaven. Mostly typical Hasegawa quality. Only mounting the wheels was a bit tricky. My dad needed some force to do that and broke off some parts. Luckily he was able to fix the damages. Another tricky part are all those narrow stripe decals, especiall the ones on the lower body. Although my dad sealed them several times with clear coat, parts of them came off when touching the model too much. Had to repaint some of the
  7. After my dad has finished his second racecar model in a row after a 25 years hiatus (gonna post the Honda later this day) he already found his third racing project. DSC_0004 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  8. My dad´s next project. Initially he wanted to do one of the Jabos from SG1 with the Mickey Mouse emblem, using a Hasegawa kit and decals from the classic ProModeler Fw190G-2/G-3 kit. But then he realized he already built a similar SG 1 plane. Don´t know yet which scheme to do. DSC_0003 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr fw190g2bg_1 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  9. Hi, I'd like to participate with a 1/48 Hasegawa Spitfire Mk Vb, built as Neville Duke's ER821. Cheers, Stefan.
  10. WIP here: This started out as a very ordinary model I built back in (I think) 1981. Added the Hamilton Hobbies AP-3C (ELINT) conversion and Quickboost propellers, added some crew figures from a couple of WWII bomber kits that seemed to fit the bill okay and modified/scratchbuilt a few antennae, I retracted the gear as I wanted it as a flying desktop model and made the stand from an old bookshelf and brass rod. Decals from Aussie Decals (silvered like crazy) and C-130 prop decals from Bring It! (absolutely brilliant). The badges represent the flying squadron (10SQN) and the engine
  11. 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 so
  12. I have been blogging this build. This is the Hasegawa 1/48 kit, with some modifications.
  13. My dad started his last Hasegawa K-4 DSC_0007 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0008 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr gonna do this scheme with Kagero decals DSC_0001 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  14. This model is built from the venerable 1/72 Hasegawa/Mania kit and represents a Ki-44-II Hei Shoki, flown by Captain Yukiyoshi Wakamatsu, 2nd Chutai Leader, 85th Sentai, Canton, China, during the summer of 1944. I also used a very nice True Details resin cockpit that I bought years ago, but the cockpit opening is tiny and the canopy quite thick, so little can be seen of it - at least I know it's in there. There's a colour profile of this aircraft in Nick Millman's Osprey Aircraft of the Aces #100, Ki-44 'Tojo' Aces of World War 2, and I based the underside colour and the heavy mottle on that p
  15. This model is built from the 1/72 Hasegawa kit and represents the N1K2-J Model 21 Shiden, flown by CPO Hideo Nakao, 343rd Kokutai, 407th Hikotai, from Matsuyama airbase, Japan, in March 1945. I also used a few bits and pieces from an old Eduard etched brass cockpit set, but little can be seen of it except in very good light. I used Master Type 99 20mm gun barrels and Print Scale decals to finish it. Paints are Tamiya, Gunze and Vallejo acrylics, and Humbrol enamels for details. Cheers, Jeff
  16. Hi folks This is Hasegawa's P40E done as a Kittyhawk 1a. Nice kit but spoiled by the various fuselage drop-in sections designed to allow them to get as many variants as possible from the one mould - none of the joins are on panel lines so if you don't like filling, sanding and scribing keep away from it. For anyone wondering about the yellow-ringed roundels under the wings, a Google search of '112 squadron RAF' will bring up a picture of FR440 showing just this. Shark mouth and serials all hand painted.
  17. Can I play with this one please.
  18. I have developed an interest in the aircraft operated by USAF Air Defense Command and Aerospace Defense Command over the time period 1946 -1980 favouring the later years. The plan is to build a representative model of a number of types operated during this period. I have already completed a Lockheed F-94 Starfire, for the Lockheed GB. I am being ambitious for this GB with three builds planned. The first is the Hasegawa’s 1/72 North American F-86D Sabre Dog. I am also planning a Meng F-102A and Meng F-106A, again both in 1/72.
  19. I originally started this build way back when in the Nordic GB, in a time before lockdown! Original thread here. One of three unfinished GBs this year I'm hoping to get finished (alongside the ongoing ones and Interceptor GB I want to start!) I've slowly been making progress mistakes since, and here are a few pics, it's been a bit of a pig getting together. Underside all built up - I did unfortunately snap one of the suspension components (anti-roll bar?). Interior is mainly built up. The kit came with some (very thin) plastic material to use
  20. #24/2020 And my dad has finished his next, and for now last, IJ subject. This time the old Hasegawa ex-Mania Nate. The kit isn´t bad, regarding it dates back to 1977. This is a limited edition from around 2005. Decals tended to tear and float around and my dad had to repaint some of the red stripes. Plastic seatbelsts from Fine Molds, EZ Line for the antenna wire, painted with Tamiya XF-14 JA Grey, Gunze H422 RLM82, Tamiya XF-52 Flat Earth and Gunze H54 Navy Blue. There are different interpretations of this aircraft´s camo. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums
  21. The Hasegawa kit is fantastic, fitted together very well with no filler required, just a bit of sanding. I used the Eduard etched cockpit detail, otherwise it's oob. Paints were all Tamiya spray cans; AS-13, AS-14 and AS-27. Thanks to @Mark V for the Spang F-4 info! I still need to add the ECM pod in the left Sparrow recess. All comments and suggestions welcome ...
  22. I mentioned in the chat thread a few days ago that I might be getting this, and I have. It may have made only three test flights in August 1945, but it's an honest-to-goodness interceptor. It will probably be a couple of days before I can start this. I mean, I could start it now, but I really ought to do a lot more work first on the kits currently on the workbench (never mind those on the back burner).
  23. With 'Shark' aggressor scheme. Decals courtesy of Twobobs. This is my third completed model and after painting and trying to pick out panel lines on this one, I'm learning of the need for more patience in surface preparation. This probably would've been so much nicer with better sanding and filling before I committed to paint and decals, and that's a lesson I can take into the next one.
  24. I wanted to do something less well known or covered for this GB and thanks to @Corsairfoxfouruncle I can. He pointed me at the Hobby 2000 re-release of the Hasegawa Dewoitine D.520. They do two versions, one of them containing three schemes used by French forces in Africa. I was so enamoured I bought two!! This is the box: Oddly, that is the one scheme I won't be doing as it required masking and painting all those stripes yourself and I'm way too slow a builder for that. I will be doing the other two options shown below: Option two
  25. And here´s my dad´s last Japanese project for this year... DSC_0007 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
