    IJN Carrier Junyo

    It's been a bit of a struggle deciding which of the numerous carriers I have in the stash to build for this GB, but the 1:350 Hasegawa IJN Junyo has been extracted. On opening the box, I found all the Hasegawa add on packs that I'd forgotten about. Will probably need the full time of the GB to build, but in for a penny and all that. Will take pics later.
  2. My project for this group build will be Hasegawa’s F4U-5N Corsair in the colours of the Argentine Navy, 2nd Attack Squadron. Argentina used Corsairs for around 10 years retiring them in the mid 1960s when they were painted in very light gull grey/white scheme. There is evidence of them flying off ARA “Independecia” which had been HMS “Warrior”. The Corsairs were used in action during an attempted Army coup, attacking Army targets. I will using in addition to kit JT75, Aztec Decals, True Details wheels, Quickboost gun barrels and Eduard Superfabric WW2 USN seatbelts. Some initial photos. Thanks for looking. Grahame.
  3. My latest effort is this example of the lovely Hasegawa F-86F. It is a easy build so all the glaring errors are of my making. I used a spare set of markings from the Eduard 'Ultimate Sabre' boxing which were for the 390th FBS, at Alexandria AFB, in Louisiana, in1955. There is a nice photo of this machine out on Google images which checks out against these markings. I really enjoyed this build and it was completely trouble free, I used just a smidgen of filler , probably due to my sausage fingers. This will be my last posting for a while as I am about to tackle the Kittyhawk Voodoo, inspired by Camper1 and Nikolay Polyakovi's current build. I might do a WIP but it might just end in the bin! Thanks as always for looking

    Hornets Sting

    Hello Everyone ... This is my latest build. Its a Hasegawa F-18C. I used Wolfpack wing folds and Hasegawa Bombs. It represents the CAG bird from the 1997-98 Med. persian gulf cruise. Hoping everone likes this please feel free to comment ? question ? Or joke. Dennis
  5. And so here it is as promised in my Lancer build. Pic of what I'm starting with: For those that haven't followed my Lancer I wont be building the Acropolis Version depicted by the box top. It be Monte car I's a knocking into shape. (Title gives it away a bit ) Although I have a couple other Hasegawa Delta's in the stash this is the first I'll be building. Therefore like with the Lancer i'll leave the suspension till last to gauge wheher the ride height needs lowering. Given Hasegawa's history with these rally kits I'm fully expecting it'll need a couple mm taken out but you never know lol. There's quite a bit to drill and sand on the body shell. Even had to fill a couple marks after removing the moulded on side indicators. The body is currently under it's first coat of primer and may even get some white on by tonight. I assembled and painted the rollcage: I did deliberately miss that small section. After all I did have to hold it somewhere haha. Next up was removing the moulded on detail from the instrument cluster. Some very creative use of a needle file and sand paper was needed lol. Not the best pic but it's hard to photo lol: I've painted the interior tub too: I have read in an Abarth book written by ex Abarth staff that all the cars they built featured grey interiors, but all the pics I've seen of these cars seem to show them either unpainted or maybe it was a silver/aluminium colour paint So I just went with Humbrols 56 Aluminium lol. Strangely there were some large recessed parts on the rear spoiler that I haven't seen on the real car so those have been filled: That's all so far. Thanks for looking. TTFN Ashley.

    Hasegawa 1/200 Boeing 737-200

    I've decided to drag another box out of the stash, in this case the Hasegawa 1/200 double kit of the 737-200. Rather than the kit's decals for ANA, old and new, I'll be using the Flightpath Dan-Air and GB Airways sheets. I've built this kit previously in the early 80's, and recall that it was a quick and easy build, so will be a good time filler for my main entry (Monarch -800). Dave
  7. Polish model distributor is going to rebox Hasegawa Hawker Hurricane with decals made by Techmod. Price in Polish shops is going to be around 56 pln, so around 11 pounds.
  8. Not exactly my cup of tea, but here is my Hasegawa Voyager 1. I built this kit for a lecture my son had at school about our solar system. And I must admit, building small spacey things is fun! Hope you like it too, thanks for watching.
  9. Hi guys, So this will be my next build hasegawa's 1/48 JU87-R2 which I believe is a extended range version of the B2 the only difference being two external fuel tanks. If that's not true then please correct me because I'm thinking of just doing a B2. The reason being because the 1994 decals don't look great and there's more options for B2 schemes. If anyone has some desert or winter schemes that are a bit different that they could share images of I would be most grateful so am open to suggestions. The kit looks ok I know there are some issues with the flap mass balancers or arms (one of the two) so am ready for that, and I will be showing it with the Aires resin engine and cockpit set which looks nice, there will no doubt be a bit of scratch and may even open it up a bit more but we'll see. It won't be a quick one I dare say. Thanks for looking. Phil
  10. Hello all, Here is my entry for this GB - Hasegawa's 1/48 E/A-18G built as an F/A-18F, of VFA-213 'Black Lions' during their 2017 cruise in support of Operation 'Inherent Resolve.' AJ 204, BuNo 166682 dropped 110 bombs during the cruise and was one of the jets seen with the huge payload of 10x GBU-32 JDAMs. So of course I have to load my model with that payload! I'm using the EA-18G boxing as it comes with the late style ECS pipes already incorporated to the fuselage, which is much better than having to add aftermarket examples. Kit: Aftermarket: I'll be using an Aires cockpit, Pavla seats, GBU-32s and associated racks from Attack Squadron, Furball decals and Xmold seamless intakes (though I may just opt for Steal Beach intake covers). Decals: The decals by Furball are outstanding. The sheet also includes the VFA-87 jet that shot down a Syrian Su-22 in June 2017. I may enter this one to the GB at a later date... The jet itself: Photos courtesy of Navy.mil. Been wanting to do this scheme since I first seen the pictures of the 10 JDAMs! Dave
  11. Here are the final pics of my just completed 1/72 scale Hasegawa Marines F-35B. F-35B Build Thread The model is pretty much out of the box, except for the modified horizontal stabilizers and the weapons pod. For details on these, please refer to the build thread. Paints were MM enamels, Alclad II metals and Colourcoats Aircraft Grey FS#36170 -- ACUS41. Can't wait for the Hasegawa F-35C! Ed

    Hasegawa 1/48 P40e Warhawk

    Hi guys, So this is my first post as a newbie on here, it's my Hasegawa P40e Warhawk that was purchased as a Easter present from my lovely lady. I'll put some photos of bits and bobs that I have done up to now as I'm nearly finished so it's not that detailed a walk through I'm afraid. I would say I think she paid about £20 for it and it's a great little kit to be fair and has been an enjoyable build. The detail is good especially the landing gears. I had a lot of filling and rubbing to do on the fuselage as the tail end is separate, in highnsight I probably should have glued half the tail onto each fuselage half first then put them together but there you go. Hopefully you'll see these pictures: As you can hopefully see I have painted the shark mouth rather than go with the decal and the aux tank and gears are on, just a few more bits and pieces and a little weathering and it should be done. Thanks for viewing. Phil

    Hasegawa 1/48 P40e Warhawk

    Hi all, So finished this build fairly quickly for my standards and I think its testament for what a nice little kit it is. There were a few minor issues mainly the tail to fuselage join (which in hindsight seems like it could be much more straightforward) but all in all a really enjoyable build. One thing I did do that's worth pointing out is swapping the target crosshair from just in front of the screen to a PE part off an old Eduard German gun sight, this gives for better scale. Some of the lights which I hope you will see on the tips of the wings were just the clear parts and before adding them on i touched them with red and green sharpies. This is the first time I have tried this effect and it works perfectly. Thanks for looking.
  14. Hi Guys, Whilst I realise 1/200 airliners are not particularly well catered for/popular, I must confess to having a real soft spot for the old Hasegawa Love Liner series. I remember as a spotty youth building a number of these little beauties, and all these years later they still build into pretty accurate renditions of the real thing. I built this 747 about 6 months ago from the old JAL boxing - IIRC this was the first 747 Hasegawa released. The landing gear is a bit basic so I added steering cylinders and taxi lights to the nose gear, but left the main landing gear alone as it's pretty much hidden away under the wings. As I managed to snap off the wing mounted HF aerials these were replaced with plastic rod. I also added a APU exhaust shroud, which is a bit oversize - and I wasn't too sure if the early ones actually had these fitted(?) Most photo's of BOAC 747's seem to show the wingtip magnetic sensors painted bright orange/red. Does anyone know the reason for this? The decals are by Classic-Airlines who do a great range for 1/200 airliners. Anyhow without further ado here's 'November Alpha' the flagship of the BOAC fleet.
  15. Hi folks, I'm back to do a little project that I've been wanting to do ever since I built the Hasegawa F-35A Lightning; namely to build the long hoped for Hasegawa "B" version!. They have come rhough, and I've gotten my grubby mitts on one. I personally feel that the Hasegawa is hands-down the best 1/72 F-35 out there, first the "A", now including the "B" version. (You might correctly surmise that I'm waiting breathlessly for their "C" version, as well!) Some folks didn't like the Hasegawa F-35A, simply because it had no open weapons bays/missles. Folks -- it's a STEALTH aircraft. All that fluff hanging out in the wind is not the best thing ever, as the radar image would not be very stealthy. Well, their "B" version is the same -- no weapons and no bays. The reason that I feel that Hasegawa is the best model of this aircraft is simply that it's pretty much dead-on accurate, as well as having decals provided for the Ram panels, versus the "sculptured terraces" that everyone else uses for RAM panels, with or without decals. But enough editorializing. I got my kit after a few months waiting for my pre-order to be shipped, from Hobby Search in Japan. The kit looks like this. This it appears to have all the parts needed to open or droop to depict landing or takeoff configurations, as well as the option for in flight mode, for which a very nice stand is also included. This build will start kind of slowly, as I am just completing a couple of home remodeling projects, and have company coming at the first of the month, and the garden beckons, etc. But I will try to move along as much as I can, for the near future. See you later, Ed
  16. #11/2018 Another of my dad´s excursions to the modern world. Hasegawa kit, not one of their best, some fit issues, steps and gaps. Thanks to fellow Britmodeller Gundylunch for selling me the kit last year sadly the decals weren´t really usable anymore so they came from an Eagle Strike sheet. Decals for the canopy detonation cord are from a TwoBobs sheet. Seat is from Quickboost, Snakeeyes from a Hasegawa weapon set, the kit includes only drop tanks and Sidewinders. Camo done with Gunze H307 FS36320 and H337 FS35237.

  17. I wasn’t on the list but hope it’s ok to join with this little badger.
  18. I've been building my own RAF 100 collection this year and needed some models to fill gaps in the collection. I thought that joining in with this group build would be a great way of participating in the fun. So here's my 1980's contribution: An 11 Squadron Lightning F.6 based at RAF Binbrook mid-late 1980's. I always thought the low-conspicuity scheme suited the Phantom and the Lightning and being a child of the 1980's, this is exactly how I remember them, so an easy decision! Yes, it's the old Hasegawa kit: a simple and hopefully quick and painless build.
  19. Straight OOB, just a quick build
  20. Hi fellow modellers, This is my rendition of the beautifull Ki-43 Hayabusa "Oscar", flow by Capt. Shigeo Nango 2° Chutai / 59° Sentai in New Guinea, September 1943. This kit is very special, it was bought last christmas by my girlfriend together with a lovely hasegawa Hien from a collector who had both unopen since the 70s. So i gave it an extra care. The kit itself it was very clean and with soft panel lines wich most where rescribed and fully riveted, The cockpit was fully redone and added neumatic lines in the undercarriage. The markings where all self made, a mix of masking and self made decals. The hinomarus where white based with vallejo cold white and the red was a self made decal, and the red stripes where painted and the white stripes where white decal paper cutted very carefully. Hope you like it.
  21. Hi folks Finally put this to bed. Mixed feelings on the results Finised mainly oob with resin seats local casted Rgds and happy modelling brian
  22. After the Apache, my dad now starts another Desert Storm project. An USMC Harrier using the oop Hasegawa kit. The kit decals weren´t useable anymore so gonna use some from EagleStrike. DSC_0003 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0004 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  23. As my ludicrously long Sea Vixen build finally shows signs of drawing to a close, thoughts turn to what to build next. I always try to have two things on the go at any one time, with the other being my never-ending Ark Royal build - but there is a limit to how much 1/350 scratch building and detailing I can stand at any one time, and I need to have something in 1/48 (my aircraft scale of choice) to keep me going. I thought about a twin Buccaneer build - an Anti-Flash White S1 and an Ark Royal (4) final commission S2D. Those will come at some point, since I have the kits and the necessary conversion materials. But watching the splendid work of Steve (Fritag), Debs (Ascoteer) and others has convinced me that it is high time I built something that I actually flew myself. Sea King or Lynx, Sea King or Lynx... much indecision was finally tilted towards the Queen of the Skies by all the press coverage of its retirement from RN SAR service earlier this year (though the ASaC7 Baggers will soldier on for a while yet), and by markdipXV711's excellent build of an 819 SAR cab which he and I flew in together 20-odd years ago. So, since 819 (my other Sea King squadron) has just been done, I have finally plumped for an aircraft from my first tour. Pull up a bollard and listen to a true dit. 820 Naval Air Squadron, 1988, 18 months into my first front-line tour. We were part of Ark Royal (5)'s CAG (carrier air group) throughout my time on the Squadron, and in July 1988 the ship plus 801 (8 x Sea Harrier FRS1), 849B Flight (3 x Sea King AEW2), a detachment from 845 (2 x Sea King HC4) and 820 (9 x Sea King HAS5) set off for Australia, via Malta, Singapore, Hong Kong, Brunei and Subic Bay (Philippines), and home via Mumbai and Gibraltar. 6 months away, and a bloody good time was had by all... Less than 2 weeks after we sailed, we were taking part in a NATO exercise in the approaches to the Med; basically we were playing the bad guys trying to force a passage through the straits, and a number of RN, USN and Spanish units were trying to stop us... including HM Submarines Torbay, Otter and Opportune. The aim of these exercises is not to be 100% realistic, but to make sure that there is maximum interaction, so occasionally there would be a 2 hour pause where the submarines, having come right inside the screen and "attacked" the hell out of the ships, would withdraw 30 miles and start again. We would knock off tracking them and leave them alone to reposition. In those long distant 1980s Cold War days, ASW was our bread and butter, and on the whole we were pretty good at it. Most of the time we did passive ASW - chucking huge quantities of sonobuoys out of the aircraft and finding submarines that way, often working with our Nimrod and P3C brethren, and often working against USSR boats rather than friendly exercise ones. In my first few weeks on the squadron we rippled 3 (3 cabs airborne 24/7) all the way from Norfolk VA to Harstad in Norway, including several days of tracking 2 Victor IIIs that were taking an interest in our games. It was pretty exhausting, but we could keep it up almost indefinitely. For the guys in the back, passive ASW was often good fun; 3-dimensional chess, and all that. But for the pilots it was skull-shatteringly dull, flying around at 4-5,000' (nosebleed territory for any self-respecting helicopter pilot) and stooging at 70kts for maximum endurance for hour after hour after hour. But on this occasion we were doing active ASW, the task for which the Sea King was originally designed. Active ASW in the daytime is enormous fun for the pilots, especially when you are in contact. At night the aircraft flies the profiles for you, closely monitored by the pilots (since you are down at 40', you want to keep a close eye on things in the pitch black; it can be a tad buttock-clenching at night). In the day, however, you generally fly it all yourself ("manual jumps" as the jargon goes) without any assistance from the AFCS (automatic flight control system), and it's a blast. So there you have the scene. I am 18 months into front line flying, and have reached the dizzy heights of being captain of my own crew. My P2 for this trip is a hugely experienced USN exchange pilot (way more experienced than me, but flying as second pilot while he gets up to speed with RN procedures). We do 45 minutes of active Torbay bashing, but then reach the pre-briefed pause while she repositions. Rather than disrupt the flying programme, we simply keep going, so we have taken a plastic milk float with us (hi tech, I tell you) and are doing some grappling training; chuck the milk float out of the back and practice SAR with it - much harder than it sounds, cos the milk float thrashes around in the down wash, so it is great training for the back seat in conning the aircraft and the front seat in hovering it precisely. A few minutes into the grapple work, with Jim the USN guy on the controls, the port engine stops... or so we thought. The Nr (rotor speed) decays as the good engine runs out of puff (too hot and too heavy to hover on one engine) and we subside rapidly onto the water yelling Mayday and punching the windows out. Phil Smith, the Observer, says he had never seen anyone strap in as fast as poor old BJ Sandoe, the Crewman who had been lying on the floor of the aircraft with his head sticking out, conning Jim onto the milk float, when suddenly the Atlantic Ocean came up to greet him. As I reached up to shut down the No 2 engine (cos you sure as heck don't want to abandon a helicopter while the rotors are still turning) it became apparent that the No 1 engine had not in fact failed, but simply run down to flight idle. The fuel computer had developed a fault and tried to shut the throttle, but there is a physical interlock built into the system for precisely this emergency, called the Flight Idle Stop, which is basically a screw jack that prevents the throttle from closing beyond a certain point - the very last thing you do when starting up is to engage it. So we over-rode the computer and managed the throttle manually, the Nr came back up to where it should be and shot off the surface of the sea like a startled rabbit, downgraded our Mayday to a Pan, and flew back to Mum. A Green Endorsement much later (still on the wall of my loo) and very shaky legs for a few hours afterwards. Well, it has to be this cab, doesn't it? So I present to you ZE419 / 014 / R of 820 Naval Air Squadron in July 1988; a bog standard Sea King HAS5. Dark blue (this was just before the days when everything became grey), black markings. Photos of the real aircraft to follow, I expect, but for now she is one of these in the distance (photo taken the day before we sailed from Pompey, so about 2 weeks before the ditching): The aircraft will be built much as in this photo, actually; folded, included the tail, with engine blanks in. The cabs in the photo have tip socks on, but I will probably build mine with the more robust blade support system known as "Forth Road Bridge" gear (as in this Mk 5 at the Fleet Air Arm Museum): The basis of the model will be the Hasegawa 1/48 Sea King, using the "Ark Royal HAR5" [no such thing; it should be HU5] edition (which for some reason Photobucket refuses to rotate, so turn your head): ...and the excellent Flightpath conversion set, which contains all sorts of goodies important to this build - notably weapons carriers, assorted aerials and a tail rotor much better suited to having a gust lock fitted to it. Herewith statutory sprue shot: ...and pic of the contents of Flightpath box and a couple of other aftermarket goodies: As it happens, I also have a Hasegawa AEW2a kit (acquired before the Mk5 kit was released, as the only game in town for a future Mk5 build). This will also be useful, since it contains a number of applicable bits such as Orange Crop ESM aerials (removed from the HU5). And since all the Hasegawa boxings are variations on the same theme, the kit already contains some parts that I will use - e.g. the HU5 has the sand filter in front of the engine intakes, but in my era we simply had the "barn door"; similarly the HU5 has the sonar removed and a blanking plate fitted. The kit contains both a barn door and a (sort of, -ish) sonar. [i also have a second complete "Ark Royal HAR5", designated eventually to be an 819 SAR aircraft... but not yet]. There will not be much progress for a few days, while I get the Vixen over the line.... Herewith photo of the appropriate log book entry (bottom line:

    BlackSheep Scooter

    Hello all Im finally finished with this one, I started my first ever WIP on October 11th. Heres a link to the WIP It Represents an A-4E used by VMA-214 BlackSheep operating out of Chu Lai in late ‘66 or early ‘67. I represented it with a mixed load out of Mk.82’s and GP bombs left over from WW2 & Korea. There was a munition shortage at the time and all services were using up stored old stock. So here we go I’ll let the plane do the rest of the talking. I hope it meets with some good reviews. I built this in tandem with a Hobbyboss FJ-4b Fury. I will post the photos for the Fury soon. They are both completed. As usual any Comments ? any Questions ? any Jokes ? Have a great modeling day. Dennis
  25. I finished the aircraft yesterday, after fighting it a long way and cutting my finger. The model was originally going to be painted as Walter Nowotny´s Fw 190A-5, but I didn´t measure the yellow rear band correctly and had to start over to avoid making a mess. But, I learned my lesson, and I correctly measured the areas where the white were to be added, so their fit was perfect. Then, after decaling the entire aircraft, the right hand landing gear melted thanks to Revell Contacta, so I added some CA and backward pressure to hold it in place. I did the same with the pitot tube. I didn´t have these problems with the other two Fw 190s I built. I used the kit decals and the upper crosses from an Aeromaster sheet.
