  1. Kit - Hasegawa 1:48 Paint - Cockpit, seat etc all acrylics - Camouflage all Xtracolour enamels. Decals - Eagle Strike Extras - True Details resin seat, Eduard kit-specific 'Zoom' set. Fuse wire, fibre-optic cable and plastic card details in cockpit, air-brake and undercarriage wells. Canadair Sabre Mk. 4 Assigned to Sqn. Ldr. T. H. Hutchinson C/O 3 Squadron RAFG Geilenkirchen, 1955/56 So, a thirty year old kit, painted with thirty year old enamels and wearing twenty-five year old decals.... bit of an 'old skool' project wouldn't you say ? There honestly isn't too much to say, the kit really does fall together and is (happily) typical of those superb Hasegawa releases from the early 1990's, crisp detail, faultless molding with fuss-free engineering and construction - I really wish they would tool-up again and release some new kits, I know that's not going to happen, but there's nothing wrong with hope is there ?. The Eagle Strike decals behaved as if they were printed yesterday - utterly flawless and superbly printed by Cartograph, again, a company I really do miss. That's just about it. Please feel free to criticise, ask a question or make any sort of comment. Have the rest of a great weekend folks, best from Middle Earth. Ian.
  2. Not as good as the academy kit but the Hasegawa Mig-23 kit does build fast. That said, I always get thrown off by kits that are a mix of raised and engraved panel lines because it makes it a little more challenging for me to make the paint job more interesting, especially since I was going for a Tipnis Grey finish. This was a straight OOB build. I broke the pitot tube early in the process and when I couldn't get a metallic pin to stick as a replacement, I fashioned a new one from my spares box. - I believe an old matchbox SHAR pitot tube. All colors are Tamiya. I used Sky Grey (XF19) for Tipnis Grey and gave it a black wash before sealing. The decals are mostly from the Hi Decal sheet for the MiG-23BN as I assumed they will be fairly similar. The Serial numbers are Berna Decals. I chose SK434 as it is still around as an attraction at the Indian Air Force Museum in Delhi. I hope you like this build. Comments are always welcome - thx for looking!
  3. RF-101C Voodoo 66th TRW, RAF Upper Heyford, 1968 1/72 Hasegawa kit rescribed + Mig paints I’ve had the old Hasegawa RF-101C in the stash for many years and was tempted to replace it with the much more modern Valom kit. But like many of these older kits it had that ‘old friend’ feel about it and I knew I wouldn’t bin it so it made it’s way onto the modelling desk. I remember the camouflaged Voodoos from 1960s Battle of Britain At Home days so I chose 60109 which I had a photo of from the 1968 Coltishall show. The kit is many decades old and is typical Hasegawa from the early period with light raised panel lines and very limited detail. The nose also seemed to have a slight turned-up look to it so I added some Milliput and reshaped it slightly. The very simple interior was a good starting point for a reasonably detailed cockpit and seat, and I rescribed most of the panel lines. I used the Mig USAF Vietnam acrylic paint set, with the lighter of the greens darkened slightly. Decals were from the spares box; mostly from old Superscale sheets. Quite pleased with it after 50 odd years of waiting to do it!
  4. Another old kit, this time a Hasegawa P47D Thunderbolt. Circa 1972 I think. Part of the stash I bought from the family of an avid modeller who passed away. The stash is in another post. The decals are useless as they are stuck fast to the backing and crumbles when soaked and I tried to tease them apart. So for this one I tried printing my own decal. More of it later on.
  5. Hello everyone... I will be using this Hasegawa kit re-boxed from monogram for my build. I will be using the instructions and decals from this kit. Here are the obligatory sprue shots In this photo you can see the only thing thats been done is the cockpit was glued together. This is a 2nd hand kit that came like this. Im pretty sure that falls below the 25% mark ? I actually have 3 complete canopy sets the kits and two from spares. I will be building either 87-8407 from the 306th Fighter Squadron in this scheme from 1982. Or my alternative will be 87-8411 from the 302nd Fighter Squadron in 1980. Please feel free to ask questions, make comments, or give your thoughts ? Dennis
  6. After 2018 (link) the Hasegawa news for January 2019. Sources: http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/month/201901/ https://www.facebook.com/hasegawamodel/photos/a.320727938071436/1491418774335674/?type=3&theater January 2019 V.P.
  7. Firstly the Dragon Me262A-1a. Not the easiest kit with some poor fit in places. Lots of detail and some very small etched metal parts. Finished with Hataka and Vallejo colours in an RLM 76, 81 and 82 scheme with decals of Yellow 5 KG(J)6 from Xtradecal sheet 48-179. z20190908_202705 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202649 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202640 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202630 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr Secondly the Hasegawa/Dragon Me262B-1a. Essentially the same kit as the A-1a with some extra bits. Again finished with Hataka and Vallejo colours. Decals again from an Xtradecal sheet. z20190908_202908 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202858 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202846 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr z20190908_202832 by Derek N.Ferguson, on Flickr
  8. Hello all, Here is my recently completed 1/48 Hasegawa F-4F Phantom in the markings of Jagdgeschwader 71 (JG 71) 'Richthofen,' German Air Force during the mid 2000's. The build thread is here. Extras used included Quickboost resin seats Eduard etch, Phase Hangar Resin FOD inserts, Royal Resin unslotted stabilisers, Master Pitot and AoA probes, Aeromaster stencils, New Ware masks, AIM-9 Sidewinders from a Tamiya F-14 and AIM-120s AMRAAMs from an Academy F-15. The actual markings were with the kit when I bought it but I've no idea of the company. Paints are all Mr Paint and I went for the heavily weathered look so often seen on Luftwaffe F-4s toward the end of their service lives. Beside the last F-4 I built (about 2 years ago) - Turkish 2020 'Terminator': Thanks for looking Dave
  9. I had meant to join in a bit earlier but things haven't quite gone to plan. I couldn't decide which Phantom to build so I'm going to have a go at a double build - this might be a bit ambitious as I'm joining half way through, but I'll have a crack at it. As both kits will have a lot in common it might be pretty efficient - I should be able to get parts from both kits painted at the same time for example. So hopefully I'm not overstretching my modelling time here! First up, Hasegawa 1/48 RF-4E: This is going to be in Iranian colours, probably the recent blue/grey scheme they've also been using on their Tomcats, using decals from Hi-Decal. Then the Hasegawa 1/48 F-4G (not sure why, but this has always been my favourite Phantom variant - it might just be from seeing one at my first IAT in 1985): This will be in Euro 1 colours using a Milspec decal sheet. Hopefully I'll get time to get started tomorrow. cheers Julian
  10. Well I was going to leave the bag sealed until Saturday morning - but - as everyone seems to be showing off their sprues - here goes... ...well I make that 37 parts - as I won't have time to paint the driver and those metal 'axels' look interesting. I've been busy in the 'BIG BOYS SCALE' - in the form of a 1/35 King Tiger - but I didn't want folk to think I had deserted the 1/72 gang. Now back in the bag and box until Saturday... The last blitz build was loads of fun - so here's hoping this little beauty behaves itself and goes together quickly. See you all on Saturday - Steve
  11. Just my place marker until I can get pics at the weekend but am entering with a Hasegawa Kittyhawk Mk 1. Probably gonna complete it as the same aircraft on the box art. Have started but is well below the 25% rule, I think I started painting the interior and then saw this GB was planned so I stopped.

    P-51D "Dappy VI"

    The old Hasegawa P-51D 1/72 kit has decals for an aircraft from 339 FW flewn by Col. William C. Clark and named Dappy VI. I can't find any information about this aircraft nor any pictures of it or the kit with mentioned decals. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hasegawa-a16-mustang-p-51d-north-american--158278 Or did Hasegawa and Scalemates get it wrong about the name of the aircraft? Happy IV or... ? Someone who knews? Cheers / André
  13. Hi all, Here's my 1/72 Hasegawa F-111D that I just finished. I used some Eduard PE on it, mainly in the cockpit, and used a mix of Superscale and kit decals. Painted with Gunze and Tamiya. I wanted to add a pair of Eduard AIM-9's, but those PE fins are really testing my patience and skills, so they might be added later. And the cockpit during construction: Thanks for looking.
  14. G'day All, Well I managed to get another one off the shelf of doom, where it has languished for about 6 years. Nothing to flash, Hasegawa 1/48 F-104G with some JG-71 decals stuck on, that I found stashed away in the dark recesses of the model cupboard. Bunged on a couple of Hasegawa Aim-9B Sidewinders just for stamps as well. It will do, its only hanging from the ceiling. Cheers, Devo
  15. Greetings! The last time I built a 1/72 Hasegawa Spitfire VIII was around 17 years back. I am revisiting this neat little kit with this quick build. Until the Eduard Mk VIII kit came out, the Hasegawa Mk VIII was the benchmark for me. Though this comes no where as close to the detail as Eduard but the engraved panel lines and the lines are pretty good, providing a neat fit and clean quick build. The cockpit has just around enough detail to look ok when you peer in. The only part I disliked was the undercarriage attachment which took some patience. I gave the kit a primary coat of Tamiya flat aluminum and applied salt to places I wanted the metal to show through for weathering. Next up was pre-shading using Tamiya flat black and then applying the camo - Tamiya Medium Sea Gray beneath and on top Tamiya Flat Earth and RAF Green. This was sealed with Tamiya clear. The stencils were from the kit as well as the spares box (Kits-world). I used xtra decals for the numbering and some more after market decals for the roundels and fin-flash. The reference picture I used is in black and white and i guessed that the nose looked blue and that's what I went with. Some quick history about the subject: This particular aircraft (MD 219) was flown by 2 Squadron Royal Indian Air Force and was forced to belly land when it suffered engine failure while formation flying from Kohat in May 1946. I added extra weathering assuming the airplane required much needed TLC before it went down. The pilot, Flying Officer K.L. Suri survived with minor injuries. I got this information from the excellent reference book, "Spitfires in the Sun" which is now my go-to book for the next few Spitfire builds I am planning.
  16. McDonnell Douglas F-4S Phantom II “Vandy 75” 1:48 Hasegawa The history of the F-4 Phantom is too well known to re-write it here, suffice it to say that it has proven itself to be one of the best aircraft of its type built to date. The Hasegawa kit is probably equally as well known was still regarded as the best 1/48 scale kit available up until perhaps when Academy released their B and C versions. The original Hasegawa F-4 was released around 1980 and has seen many re-releases of the various versions from that date, along with new or additional parts they included new decals and the moulds were refreshed with engraved details to replace the raised details. This version of the Phantom the F-4S comes with commemorative decals for the 75th anniversary of Air Test and Evaluation squadron VX-4. The thing with the Hasegawa Phantom kits is that you know exactly what you’re going to get. The moulds are obviously holding up well as there is no sign of flash or imperfections, on the review sample at least, the details are still nice and crisp. It’s not perfect by any means but a good looking model is quite easy to achieve. Plus there is more aftermarket for these kits than you can throw a stick at, so the world is your lobster in deciding how detailed you want to make your kit. What you do get in this release is the strengthening panels for under the wing and around the main wheel bays. These are provided in what looks like etched nickel and are pretty easy to fit. For those that haven’t built one construction begins with the two pilots, each with separate heads, complete with bone dome, masks and oxygen hose. The pilot has a separate right arm, whilst the navigator has a separate left arm. The ejection seats are assembled from the singe piece squab/backrest/headrest, the two seat sides; primary ejection gun and headbox cover with firing handles moulded integrally. The twin seat tub is fitted with the rear bulkhead, navigators’ instrument panel with separate radar joystick, mid bulkhead, pilots joystick, rudder pedals and instrument panel. The instrument panels and side consoles need to be carefully painted as there are no decals included. The nosewheel bay is then glued to the bottom of the completed cockpit tub and affixed to one side of the fuselage followed by the separate sidewalls. The fuselage halves are then joined together and the two piece air intakes are attached. The blank wall that Hasegawa provide at the rear of the intakes needs to be painted black, or the modeller could produce a photo/decal to reproduce the intake and fan face before fitting the kit parts. Alternatively some homemade or aftermarket intake blanks could be use to hide the shortcoming. With the intakes in place the two ECM fins are fitted to each side. The single piece lower wing isn’t fitted with the outer wing panels; these are moulded with the upper wing sections, thus ensuring the correct dihedral on these panels. With the upper wings fixed to the lower section the wing fence on the leading edge at the fold join needs to be removed and a new part fitted further back along the join. The outer wing slats are also fitted at this time. The completed wing can then be joined to the fuselage assembly, followed by the single piece exhausts, horizontal tailplanes, fin top, two part nosecone, rear canopy fairing, the ejector seats and the pilots. Turning the model over onto its back the nose wheel, consisting of the oleo, separate scissor link, twin nose wheels and retraction jacks are assembled and fitted to the nosewheel bay. The main door retraction mechanism, main door, nose door with aerial attached are then fitted, as are the openings for the two nose intakes. Once the etched strengthening straps have been carefully removed from the fret the can be fitted into their appropriate positions forward of the main wheel bays and airbrakes. Each main undercarriage assembly is made up of two wheel halves, oleo, retraction jack and main bay door; these are then fitted into place. The small outer doors are then attached, followed by the inner doors and their linkages. The airbrakes can be posed either extended or retracted with the addition of the actuator jack if extended. The catapult stop hooks and their mounting plates are then fitted to the forward inner wing. To complete the fuselage the intake splitter plates and cockpit glazing parts are attached, the modeller can pose the canopies open or closed as desired. The model also comes with three two piece drop tanks, one for the centreline station and two for the outer wing stations. The inner wing pylons are fitted with twin launch rails and attached to the inner wing station. The kit does come with four Sidewinder and four Sparrow missiles should the modeller wish to fit them. Decals The decal sheet is smaller than normal due to the fact that there aren’t any stencils, probably due to this particular scheme. The gold 75th anniversary markings look great on the sheet with good density and opacity and in register. There is very little carrier film visible with the sole exceptions being the air intake warnings, but being affixed on gloss paint this shouldn’t cause too many problems with silvering. It certainly a lovely looking scheme. Conclusion Yes it’s another Hasegawa Phantom re-release. But in 1:48 this is still the one to get if you want an F-4S. I have built a few in my time modelling and have always enjoyed the build so maybe it’s time for me to do another? If you haven’t built one then now’s the time as you can’t have a model collection without at least one Phantom in it. Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of UK distributors for
  17. This is the latest mold from Hasegawa with new parts. Subsequent rebox are with new decals but same kit. Hasegawa 1/72 QF-4E Phantom II USAF Farewell #02238. Pros - correct shape and kit for the 1/72 F-4E to G variants as Hasegawa Phantoms has to to be known. Good decals. Cons - poor fit surprisingly despite this being the latest mold and from a well known brand. Maybe its 1/72 and Hasegawa is looking to milk it for what its worth. This means there is an open market for someone to come along and provide a better fitting 1/72 F-4E to G variant.
  18. #20/2019 After the 109 in Romanian colours, my dad built also a Hurricane in foreign service. Hasegawa Romanian Hurricane kit, Eduard seatbelts, in the kit missing early style prop and spinner taken from the new Airfix Hurricane I, missing 5-spoke wheels from ultracast, missing early style antenna mast from the spares box, no ring but at least a crosshair gunsight included in the kit, decals from the kit and RB Productions. Tamiya Flat Earth and Dark Green for the upper camo, camo scheme done with masks from AML.

  19. This was actually intended for Lockheed GB But one thing led to another, I missed the build deadline, and finished it several days ago... So here it is.. Hasegawa 1/72 CF-104, OOB beside wires for the ejection seat. I use mostly AK Interactive Xtreme Metal, Mr.Hobby Super Metallic, and Mr.Color paints. Cheers, Mario
  20. Thanks to those of you who followed my WIP, although small in content, helped me with some inspiration to see this through. I was satisfied with the end result and there is much for me to ponder that I will try and improve on for my next build. Overcoming some challenges in the end made it a success for me. I am glad to share with you. Hasegawa F-4 long nose but some modification needed. Eduard cockpit photoetch set and TrueDetails seats. Most of the rest came from the normal parts included. Paint was a combination of Tamiya and Vallejo, most lightened slightly. Revell paints are not available here in Canada, that would have provided better matches. This is the inspiration for me project, the original photographer was kind to send me an original image for me to use here, thank you Mr Friedrich Becker. Thank you for viewing and appreciate any and all comments. Craig
  21. To have a buddy for the Romanian 109 Emil, my dad now starts a Hurricane too, using this Hasegawa kit. DSC_0010 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  22. Hi all, first work I'm posting on here. Relatively new modeler, this is probably my seventh completed build. Open to any critiques and constructive criticism! The model is of a YF-19 test jet/mecha (they call them variable fighters) from the anime Macross Plus. The story pits this conventionally controlled fighter against a neural-controlled YF-21 in test trials to see which would be the replacement for the current fleet fighter. The photos might hide some of the horrors, but from my own critical eye there's a noticeable amount of silvering in some decals, I butchered some areas I tried to re-scribe, and there are some joins that could have been puttied and sanded better. Also, I snapped apart one of the foot/engine nozzles, which is why they are uneven. I tried making my own stand for the first time, converting this to an in-flight model. This meant drilling a hole and plugging in a styrene tube to support a brass rod. It actually worked out pretty well, but it is very back heavy. I'm hoping the base I'm making for this will support it hah, but wanted to snap some photos first. In the stash is the 1/48 version of this plane, but I'm waiting for my skills to improve before I tackle it. Thinking a color closer to white for that one. This 1/72 version was good practice, and I will be building the YF-21 companion soon as well. Stynylrez grey primer Mission Model paints, Mission Model & Vallejo Metal Color for metals Molotow Liquid Chrome pen & Tamiya clears for the lights Mission Models gloss & Allclad Klear Kote Matte Mig enamel & mechanical pencil for panel lines (I generally like subtle panel line colors, but figured with an anime subject black was the right choice)
  23. I've left this late and if I don't start I'm not going to finish on time - I'll be away for a couple of weekends in July so I only have 6 weekends to get this done. It's the Hasegawa 1/48 F-104J. I have a few aftermarket goodies for it but in the interests of time I might not use them all. I'll be using the Two Bobs Komatsu Starfighters sheet, going to go for the natural metal/red/white option - there's a photo of it here: http://www.916-starfighter.de/Large/Stars/wJ673.htm Here's the open box and aftermarket stuff: I've made a start - got a few subassemblies assembled and started painting. Don't have a photo to share yet - not really worth sharing at this stage - but hopefully will make quick progress. If I can get the fuselage closed up next weekend I reckon I can get it done by the end of the GB.
  24. From Osaka Hobby Festival 2017. After the F-35A Hasegawa is to release in March 2018 a 1/72nd Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II kit - ref.? Sources: https://twitter.com/sa_relations/status/926288421517123584/ https://twitter.com/hasegawa_model/status/927732348271112192 V.P.
  25. Just finished this 1/48 F-104J in the Lockheed group build. It's the Hasegawa kit, finished with AK Xtreme metal, Gunze and Tamiya paints, decals from the Two Bobs Komatsu Starfighters set. Build thread is here. Thanks for looking Julian
