  1. 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!
  2. Good morning, first of all, the justification! I had started building a 1/72 B17G Airfix in parallel with a Revell model. Here you can see it: Looking for detailing may have dulled my mojo, yet I am a bit of a fan of this aircraft, with the goal of building all the models that are sleeping in my stock (...a lot, that is! ) I will detail less the interior on the next ones, especially as you cannot see much when the fuselage is closed (familiar refrain). But I want to finish it! This is the construction now: I can say that the main part is done, I even riveted the bird: One reason I stopped the project was a deep reflection on the presence of the Mickey radar in the Airfix box: What if I built a Mickey ship? I mainly decorate my B17's with 91BG colours; I did some research, and found out that a 91BG B17G was a mickey ship. But I already did it, without the radar (I didnot know at the time!) (Tennessee Tess, radio call sign 44-8357, B17G-70-VE) Otherwise, I have plenty of decorations with pin up for B17G of 91eBG with cheyenne turret PS: for VP, I have the decos for the fox and Happy Bottom from the 381st. A little kick to help me? Regards, Eric-Snafu35
  3. No, not that one, nor Ozzy, but this: flown by Hptm. Heinrich Prinz zu Sayn und Wittgenstein. AW
  4. Kit - Hasegawa K25 Paint - All Lacquers Decals - Kit Extras - Loadout from spares. McDD F-15C Eagle 36th TFW Bitburg AB, Germany 1986 I know I cannot prove it, but this is the first-ever 1:72 F-15 kit I have built, and I've been nailing bits of plastic together since 1970 ! - Bought this for the massive sum of 10.00 GBP from Phils' Model Shop in Southport back in 1990, and it's sat in my stash ever since. Picked it up around three weeks ago and it's been an absolute joy ever since. We really did have it good back-in-the-day with Hasegawa issuing top-quality kits like this almost monthly. So what to say about the build ? - Apart from the thirty actuating rods for the exhaust petals which were/are a bl**dy nightmare, it's an easy, easy build. Virtually no putty or filler required anywhere, even the potentially disastrous wing/fuselage joint was a breeze. Cockpit area is beautifully detailed and mine is fully painted, however I snapped both the actuating struts when I was manipulating the (huge) canopy into place so reluctantly had to glue the 'glass' into place, shame really but that's down to my sausage fingers and general clumsiness, 'owt to do with the kit. The decals behaved impeccably even after all this time, I was fully prepared for them to shatter into a million atom-sized pieces when they hit the water and they simply didn't !. Paint is Mr Color lacquers and TBH appear a little too blue on the build, so I'll need to have that in mind if I use them on any other Low-Vis build in the future. So as ever thanks for taking the time to look and /or comment... next I'll finish my Tamiya Honda, then maybe a 'What If' project. All the best from Middle Earth. Ian.
  5. Hi folk's,I never consider Hasegawa kits as oldie's as I never really saw them till the mid eighties but thinking about it that was a long time ago now so in my current oldies mindset I picked up a nice example for £6 with decent looking decal's for a future entry for this GB fits nicely into the brief and my liking for colourful scheme's.It's a Hales boxing photo's when it arrive's. It will be in the Red,White and Blue scheme.
  6. 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,
  7. 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
  8. hi,every one!! this is my Hasegawa 1/48 P-40N .. this kit is aged,but quite easy to build. I use P.E set for landing flap and add some rivets to this warbird. the oliver darb color is much harder than I expact.. not perfect..but I think the result is ok... hope you like it and here is the video build if you are interested

  10. Hi all ! Thanks very much for my acceptance in this group build . As discussed with modelling minion , I'll start posting my WIP today but I actually started my build a few months ago. So , don't think I'm a fast builder since I'm a very slow builder indeed . The model : As usual for most of our kits , let's start with the bang seat . My A-4F his equipped with an Escapac IC-3 ( black in this case ) and I will represent it with it's security on ( pilots call it the headknocker !!!! ) in other words with it's headknocker out ! Details of the seat : The headknocker : Since I'm a DIY adept and , that I'm quite found of some scratch building , I started from the Hasegawa seat . Some more details of the top part of the seat with the security stuff hidden behind the head knocker . That's all for tonight !!! Thank's for passing by . See you soon for the next step .

  12. My latest completion the Hasegawa 1/72 McDonnell Douglas RF-4B Phantom II, I used the Reskit 3D printed Engine Intakes on this, a bit of surgery is required for them but I think they are worth the effort, Aires engine exhausts an Eduard Etched brass in the cockpit. I used the kit decals and finished with MRP and Tamiya Lacquers 1/72 McDonnell Douglas RF-4B Phantom II by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr 1/72 McDonnell Douglas RF-4B Phantom II by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr 1/72 McDonnell Douglas RF-4B Phantom II by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr 1/72 McDonnell Douglas RF-4B Phantom II by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr 1/72 McDonnell Douglas RF-4B Phantom II by Phillip Wilmshurst, on Flickr
  13. I opened this kit, eager to make a start on it. Imagine the ugly surprise when I checked the sprues and found the main gear struts to be broken. I repaired then with UHU Plast and CA. Colours used came from the Revell Aqua range. They were 40 Blacl Green, 91 Steel, 59 Duck Egg Blue, 15 Matt Yellow, 48 Sea Green, 08 Matt Black. Naoshi Kanno was one of the aces of the 343 Naval Air Group. He graduated flight school in 1943 and waa posted to this unit soon after. During his service with the 343rd, he would achieve 25 kills. Kanno disappeared on August 1st 1945 near Kyushu, Japan, while on a mission to intercept B-24 bombers escorted by P-51 Mustangs. He was posthumously promoted to Lieutenant. Anyway, here are the photos.
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. Two Hasegawas for the price of one. I've just finished building two 1/72 Hasegawa kits, the Kyushu J7W1Shinden and the Ki-44 Tojo. Both nice builds, barely any fit issues, though the Ki-44 needed a little more filler that I am used to with Hasegawa kits. Both were OOB, though I used peewit or dead design canopy masks, eduard seat belts, little lenses lamps for the nav lights and for the Ki-44 a Yahu instrument panel. Paints were Tamiya and Mr Colour, with Halfords black primer rattle can. The J7W1 is a most interesting plane, a pusher design with canards, but only ever flew as a prototype. It does have a very large 6 blade propellor, which if the stalky tricycle gear, canards and rear location of the engine didn't make you think hmmm, that's interesting, I suppose the propellor would. The plane itself is also quite large. Effectively, straight out of the box, plenty of nose weight, brush painted, using the paint scheme from the box for the kit. Here' tis. The other one of the Hasegawa pair is the 1.72 Ki-44, a quite stubby little plane, but this one was most definitely not painted in a scheme from the kit box. While checking my only reference on Japanese planes of the pacific war, by Rene Franrillon, I came across a profile of the Tojo; Intrigued, I thought I'll do this scheme, as I'd never seen anything before to suggest that Japanese night fighters were painted all black. Logic suggests they ought to have been, and surely the effectiveness of the black overall scheme somewhat reduced by the white bands for the hinomarus. While I know where the errors are, and anyone with experience of Japanese aircraft will see them, for once, I don't think I've done a bad job. I strayed Mr Colour White primer for the bands, then brush painted over two coats of Tamiya flat white for the bands, then used Tamiya flexible tape for masking the bands, and was absurdly pleased with myself that apart from a couple of tiny dots, there was no bleed of black onto the white. The yellow leading edge bands were a little awkward to mask up, but I managed, and I traced the red tail flash from the profile onto tamiya yellow tape and that didn't come out too badly. Outside of the yahu i/p, eduard seatbelts and dead design canopy masks, I used some albion alloys slide fit brass tube for the pitot, as the moulded on pitot I inadvertently broke off. Side by side, the difference in size of the Shinden and the Tojo is obvious.
  19. 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.
  20. #20/2022 After the 109 Emil, here´s my dad´s second Luftwaffe subject this year. Hasegawa kit, which comes with an early style and for this version wrongly shaped ETC, took a correct one from an older limited Hasegawa 190 kit. Also this kit has only the late style wheels, took spoked ones from the sparesbox. Eduard seatbelt used, EZ Line for the antenna wires. Fuselage decals are leftovers from the ProModeler 190G-2/3. The cross and triangle applied on the left side were slightly damaged, had to do some paint touch ups. Camo done with MRP RLM74/75/76. For my dad the RLM74 was too much greenish, therefore he mixed it with some more grey. Brake lines done with plastic rods and lead wire, landing gear retraction wire with fishing line.

  21. "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.
  22. Hi all, Here's the latest in my Fleet Air Arm jet collection, Hasegawa's aging 1/48 Phantom FG1 with plenty of modifications. This build took six months and there were plenty of additions; Quickboost resin ejection seats, with the ejection handles made from 0.3mm wire Alleycat seamless intakes Master pitot tube and AoA indicator Eduard Brassin Sidewinders and Sparrows ResKit wheels Xtradecal Phantom FG1 decals and stencils The following improvements were made to the kit; Blemishes in the clear parts removed, polished and treated with Klear CAD modelled and 3D printed fuel tanks (the kit ones weren't great) Some minor detail added to the cockpit (gauges and wires) This was my first attempt at completely airbrushing a I used vallejo acrylic primer and Hataka red line Extra Dark Sea Grey for the top, beneath, I started off using Hataka red line white, but soon switched to Tamiya acrylics. The red and white tail decal was the wrong size, so that is airburshed too, the omega symbol was carefully cut out from the decal sheet and applied. Weathering was done using Mig Panel Line Wash as well as oils for some staining underneath. Varnished with Winsor & Newton Galleria Satin acrylic. Molotow liquid chrome was used for the chromed oleos, and this gives a much more realistic finish than using paint - the metallic paint to the aft of the fuselage is Mig's Bare Metal acrylic collection - very chuffed with these. I'm really pleased with this build, it was rather challenging and took quite a few months - I've learnt an awful lot about airbrushing and various weathering techniques - it really does look incredible in my display case with the rest of my Fleet Air Arm jets (Attacker, Sea Hawk, Sea Venom, Sea Vixen and Scimitar). I'm excited about having the Ark Royal Phantom and Buccaneer pairing complete in a few more months.... Thanks for looking, now on to my new Airfix Buccaneer Cheers Ben
  23. This kit, bought from Kit Rescue at IPMS Avon show earlier this year, costing £10.
  24. After a long pause, finally time for a new 190. Gonna do one of the early Jabos with the Mickey Mouse emblem.
