  3. Ki-61-Id Hien (Tony) | 1/72 | Hasegawa 19th Air Group, Luzon, Philippines, 1945 This was one of the oldest kits in my stash. In my first or second year of college, my parents gave me almost all of the 1/72 Hasegawa Japenese fighter kits for Christmas. I built all but this and the Tojo. About a month ago, I decided I wanted to get started on it soon and posted a question here because the color callouts confused me. Luckily I did, because that's how I found out that the infamous "Shamrock" on the Hasegawa kit is open to considerable debate and likely didn't exis
  4. Rejoining with this Hasegawa Mosquito, costing me £6 at SMW2001. It has a camo option for 456 which is an RAAF squadron. And a Kangaroo roundel on the entry door.
  5. 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
  6. This is a trip back to my youth. I bought 3 non-running S1/KH250 when I was 17. I managed to piece together a working KH250 and this was my first bike after ditching the L-Plates. It also started a journey where I owned a KH400, KH500 and an H2 750 before I moved onto the Suzuki stink pots which in turn culminated in an RG500. Of the Kawasaki triples, the 250 was my favourite, the 400 was more powerful but not as much fun, the 500 kept breaking down (ignition issues) and the 750 just wanted to kill me. This is also my first Hasegawa bike kit, and it is a beauty! The build and
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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).
  10. 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
  11. Oh, what the heck. I have had this 1987 boxing in my stash since the 1990's and if I don't get it built before long the decs will be well past their shelf life - if they are not already! If I have time I will try and get it built - it will be the third F-15 I have built with one more - an F-15E of the same vintage - left in my stash. The first one was either Revell or Monogram from about 1974, not long after it entered service and I remember it was painted rather badly in my take on the initial "Air Superiority Blue"scheme, but before long it was replaced with what I thought was a
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. One of the 3 Covid builds I have on the go is a 1/48 (Hasegawa) JU-87R-2 Stuka - yes, the famous (or infamous) Desert Snake flown by Hubert Poltz. Being a Hasegawa kit, just a little dressing up of the cockpit was needed. A little scratchbuilding, and a pair of Ultracast seats, and exhaust stacks. I also had to make out of scrap brass the 2 small armor plates for the rear gunner canopy ... The build continued using the spare long range tanks included in the Airfix JU-87B-1 (not used on the B-1) The fit was exceptio
  15. 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
  16. This is my entry for the Interceptors Group Build. Hasegawa's 1/72 Kawanishi N1K2-J Shidenkai 'George'. It entered service in 1944 and was one of the few Japanese Navy aircraft that could offer a pilot a chance against the Hellcat and Corsair. The kit has two decal options both from the elite naval unit the 343rd Naval Kokutai.

  20. As indicated over in the build thread HERE Here are a few more finished pictures, of a model that I've always wanted, built by kit-bashing a 1/72 Hasegawa F4B/N Phantom II kit, that eventually used NO aftermarket parts, NO resin parts, and NO vacuformed parts. I only used the parts in the Hasegawa box, some decals from the spares box, and of course, some decals printed on my inkjet printer at home. I should mention here that all the needed artwork is provided in the build thread, free for any NON-Commercial use, if you would care to try one yourself. The pictures:

  22. Nothing on the TV worth watching and my workroom is freezing so l thought l would put up some pictures of some of my P51's. Built over the last 10 years,they form part of my collection of Mustangs, 16 in total in both 1/48 and 1/72. These are all 1/48 and are from Hasegawa, Tamiya and Eduard, have got some Airfix as well which l will post another time.

  23. So, seeing as the lockdown and social isolation continues, i thought i would grab another box down off the shelf to occupy my evenings. As the titla and tags suggest it is the Subaru Impreza Sports Wagon WRX in 1/24 from Hasegawa. A nice little curbside kit that should go together well. The mouldings lok crisp with minimal cleanup looking to be required. There are a few parts in the box not required as it looks like some Impreza sprues with the Wagon stuff added on top, so the kit bash spares box continues to grow. Included are some window masks for the clea
  24. Hallo The kit was on one side easy, on the other side frowzy. Look, the cockpit by itself is inaccurate to the outmost. The front section is a narrow tube with protection cushion just on the left side. Right side blanked out. The Revi is neglected, no position at all. (I lost mine during installation inside). The cockpit is open to the front, so when anything gets lost it is lost. The hand wheel for opening the canopy, oh the position is wrong. No chance to install it where it should be. And so on. All around the model you find ambuscade due to sloppy design. A
  25. More than 20 years after finishing my last model I felt I wanted to try out some modelling again! Last time I was "active" was in 1999-2000 or so, when I moved out from my parents house. Out of my old builds nothing is left except for some photos, but I recall some fun builds like the revell F101-B Voodoo in 1:72 and the Airfix S A Bulldog in the same scale, and of course also the Airfix Bf109 in 1:24. So, after many years I want to get off where I left and as a start I will try out with something rather easy where I can focus on trying out some new techniques. This turned out to
