  1. 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
  2. I would like to add a late entry. I have singlehandedly failed to do much modelling recently so I need a GB to kick me into gear. Buried in my stash (so deep it took some time to find it) I have this little gem. I cannot remember where I got it from but it must be 10+ years ago and the kit is obviously much older than that...raised panel lines anyone. The plastic also looks very shiny and a bit brittle. I am going to build it OTB. The main aim to (a) have fun and (b) complete a build. All comments welcome as always. Dave
  3. Last of five Emils done. Eduard kit with Hasegawa decals, RLM71 from Gunze, RLM65 from AK Real Color, legs shortened about 2-3mm to make it look better and more realistic, plastic rods and lead wire for the brake lines, EZ Line and fishing line for the antenna.

  4. Most likely now the last Emil by my dad for now Eduard kit with decals from the Hasegawa kit. DSC_0004 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0005 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  5. This is a 1/72 Hasegawa Hornet TF-18A that I picked up pretty cheap on ebay. Not too impressed with the general lack of detail and moulding but I think it is an older kit maybe? The kit decals looked like they have been soaked and left to dry, so were cracked and pretty unusable in the main. I managed to rescue the tail codes luckily and had a spare set from a Revell Super Hornet thankfully that made up the rest. Paint is Mig Ammo and the base is yet again a sheet of 2500 grade wet n dry paper mounted on beech block (Kitchen drawer front!), painted to resemble a carrier deck (if you squint slightly and close one eye!). Apologies to Coastal Kits for copying their carrier deck design All comments welcome
  6. I loved building this as part of my model clubs group build: T101 (101 years of Tangmere Airfield). XV408 is currently resident at Tangmere Military Aircraft Museum, which is home to my club: Tangmere Sector Modellers IPMS. It is being lovingly restored to its most famous 'blue' scheme that 92Sqn had done in homage to the blue Hunters that the Squadron used for their display team. This is the Hasegawa 'blue special' kit with Aires resin cockpit, Radar, electronics bay, allycat seamless intakes, scratch built parachute compartment (and other bits). Painted with Vallejo Model Air insignia blue. 101 will be at Scale Model World, so please come and see us.
  7. Hasegawa's 1/72 scale F-4C/D kit, built SFB as F-4C 63-7618 of 57 FIS out of Keflavik, Iceland at the 1976 William Tell Gunnery Competition held at Tyndall AFB in Florida, USA
  8. All this buzz nowadays with magnificent Tempests, amazing Tiffys in the small scale and general Hawker appreciation I felt that I needed to join the fray. I got one of these way back when. It was started at least 4 years ago with what at the time was my first resin cockpit, but has laid dormant for at least 3 years. The last outing was this family shoot with it's Airfix brothers I was staring at my second Airfix 1/72 Tiffy with the plan to do a RCAF Bomb-phoon as a quickish build when I heard whispers from another box in the stash. "what about me? I'm I not good enough anymore?" That Siren call was too hard to pass up on, so there was only one thing that I could do (was ding-a-ding-ding my dang-a-long ling-long as Ministry tells you to) Right. I'm planning to do one of the three desert test machines that Churchill himself ordered to be sent down to Egypt for trails. The Tiffys were of the early Car-door type, adorned with the glorious desert paint scheme that looks so good, tropical air intake and uncovered guns. The last thing is a wee bit like Magnum P.I I reckon, or what to do say @Procopius A suitable set of decals have been procured which also includes a tropical air filter. During the years I've had the good idea to add more stuff to a stalled build in order to get in done. I'm sure it's a terrific idea What's actually been done so far? Ah yes, Aires gun bays. I've added a gun heating pipe, and painted it brown according to what I knew at that time, but nowadays I think it should be aluminium through and through. I also need to add a few shims to the side, and prepare for the installation of Masters excellent turned Hispanos. Inserts for the car-door version was a bit of a pig, so here I need to make a few new panel lines :shudder: The Aires Cockpit seems to be almost finished, except for a trim wheel that is MIA. I should still have the Hasegawa plastic somewhere, so that will be used instead. Here's hoping that the Cockpit was painted interior green and black, and not aluminium and black... On with the show!
  9. I wanted to join but time is short, and I'm still manfully working my way through a pair of challenging TT builds in the trainers QGB, a Pavla Martinet and a fairly elderly Special Hobby Vengeance. We're also away for 10 days for a family wedding so my bench time is limited in the coming weeks. So if permissible this Fleet Air Arm sub hunter and killer from Hasegawa should be a relatively straightforward and trouble free build compared to my recent builds. And is all in one colour. Five nicely moulded grey sprues, not extensively detailed but not at all bad. And one small mall sprue with the radar on it. I've so got a masking set in the stash from Eduard. All the glazing on a single, quite large sprue. And a white metal arrestor hook. Good idea as shouldn't break when handled. Typical Hasegawa instructions, simple breakdown of parts, logical build sequence and no obvious pitfalls. Hopefully the fit will be exemplary. with options for one Suez aircraft from HMS Bulwark. The transfers have yellowed so they'll have to go on the front window sill for a few weeks. If they don't bleach out the actual markings not the Musketeer stripes are pretty straightforward and I should be able to sort something out Now to get some paint on.
  10. Hi, I'm going in with Hasegawa 1/72 F-104 Starfighter. Like I mentioned in the GB Chat, this is not a favorite aircraft for me. And other modeller friends of mine would just giving me weird looks for saying that... So probably this built will make me 'love' it more This was the start, around a week ago before I pack it and depart with me for my workplace. Paint all the cockpit area with Mr.Color H370 as per instructions sheet Didn't have the mood to post, or start the build until 2 days ago and able to paint and built the cockpit, scratch a simple throttle, paint it, followed with wash and drybrushed both using tamiya enamel. 2 fishing ballast glued with epoxy resin is enough right? So... To build the CAF version, Hasegawa instructed to cut off 2 of the 3 blade antenna on front of the nose landing gear well. But, seeing the fitting between the halves (and the CAF sure have a shiny Starfighter...which means smooth surface). I planned to cut all of the antenna for ease of sanding later and re-attach it near the end of the build. Any idea... Or pointers maybe? Cheers, Mario
  11. OK, this a build that I have been promising for at least 2 GB's, but life got in the way big time First effort was what was called a buddy build way back, then the Maritime GB that finished recently So with as much determination as I can muster, I'm off at last, started on the 2nd day of the GB, but only just getting around to posting Nothing was done in either of the 2 previous attempts, just stuff collected First thing you will notice is that this is a late boxing with very nice decals compared to the older boxings It also as I was to find out, has some flash that needs to be addressed, significantly on the fuselage halves, which I would recommend needs dealing with before anything is attached to the fuselage halves The wings needed dressing down as well. As the wings on the Neppie are very busy compared to most, probably the Constellation is close with a four engine arrangement and tip tanks I decided to start with them, so the 2 jet engines and the tip tanks together The Mainwheel wells are not deep enough and I decided to open them up a bit, so put the nacelles together making sure to open up the top half of the locating cup on one side so the landing gear can be put in later then marked on the outside of the nacelles where to cut the idea being to leave the main gear attachments alone and cutting around them, they are more than strong enough I think. Now when you mark on the outside of the nacelle you need to remember to cut several mm's on the inside of the line, on the first one that principal applied, the second one I seemed to forget, but it was about 10 minutes later and my memory is shot So.. packed out with some plastic strip to correct the goof up not had time to do anymore since, but did look at the Resin Cockpit which is very nice, but realised the Eduard PE is flat and the resin is not, so I'm guessing I'm going to have to paint the resin and forgo the PE, maybe try the Hasegawa decals Today I will go and visit my resident SP-2H and have a better look at what's behind the mesh that is significant in the Mainwheel wells, my photos of some of it are up on the Walkaround site Also need to figure out what I'm going to use for that mesh
  12. A pair of recent completions, the Hasegawa 1/48 P-47D Thunderbolt I and Spitfire VIII, both in SEAC colours and both basically OOB. The Spitfire is in the markings of 152 Sqn, while the T-Bolt is of 146 Sqn.
  13. Hi all, another recent completion, the Hasegawa F6F-3 Hellcat. I used the more detailed engine from the Hobbyboss kit, a resin cowling and wheels, a squadron vacform canopy and Techmod decals. It was my first use of Hataka acrylics and to my eye they look spot on (the photos in the bright desert sun makes them appear more vivid than reality). Hope you like it! Chris
  14. Hello everyone, having recently finished a long and stressful course at work I decided to get back into modelling again. Here is one of my most recent finished models, the Hasegawa P-51D Mustang. I used a set of resin flaps and wheels plus Aeromaster decals. With the paint I used various metallic shades to represent the various different materials used, for example the painted wings and unpainted fuselage. Hope you like it! Chris
  15. Hallo This is my Saraf. Kit from Hasegawa with Aires cockpit. The instruction for this kit is a nightmare. Guess…The wing installation on the left side is actually not possible, without cutting the plastic through. Without my own photos, the outcome would have been a disaster. The cockpit glass was glued after finishing all! The Aires cockpit does not match the Saraf. Detail work had to be done! The decals for the step on the right side is purely wrong. Too short! This is my second helicopter. Happy modelling
  16. 16/2019 And here´s the third of five Emils. Hasegawa kit, legs shortened about 2-3mm, some decals from Aeromaster but they got the Stammkennzeichen wrong, the ones for the underwing are missing so are decals for the coat of arms of JFS1. My dad used Luftwaffe letter decals from Fantasy Printshop, and coat of arms decals from Peddinghaus (1/72 ones because the 1/48 were way too large). Brake lines done with lead wire and plastic rods, the latter ones used also for the upperwing landing gear indicators, a piece of brass pipe for the antenna to fuselage insert, EZ Line for the antenna, AK Real Color paints for the RLM 74/75/76 camo. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235054625-ship-defense148-messerschmitt-bf109e-4-kommando-losigkeit/ Between February 14th and March 20th 1942, a bunch of pilots and aircraft from JG1 and Jagdfliegerschule (Fighterschool) 1 and 2 were sent to the far north to escort and protect German ships in Norway. The unit was called Jagdgruppe Losigkeit after it´s CO Hauptmann Fritz Losigkeit.

  17. Hi Folks, Now that College is over for the year, I've got a little bit more free time. Can't resist a bit of model making despite the good weather, so here goes... Hasegawa 1/72 AV-8B Harrier II A nice looking kit that hardly gets built, with good reason some might say... From memory, the kit builds up well but it does have a few glaring issues. This is one of the 'limited edition' pricejacker kits of a variant that hardly gets seen and in these markings too. A nice box photo, I'll use this to get an idea of weathering. New parts/decals: Surprisingly, this kit has most parts for both Plus and Night Attack variants. The decals are pretty good too and are printed in a cool blue/grey colour, the box photo hints at the same colours for the markings and I think these jets were aboard an Amphibious Assault Carrier as the 'ET' tailcode is usually reserved for the 'Flying Tigers' helicopter squadron Annoyingly, Hasegawa never seems too bothered about updating the early AV-8B cockpit console of the 'real world' kits, the Plus, Night Attack and GR's have 2 digital screens. Their computer game inspired AV-8B Plus Idolmaster kit, with the animation characters plastered all over it, has the updated cockpit. Make of that what you will... Best to press on: Moaning aside it's onto the kit. Got a few of the weapons sets to load up the jet, I'm thinking of a Litening pod, Zuni rocket pod and either x2 500lb LGB's or x2 500lb JDAMS. Other suggestions are welcome... I'll build this Harrier in-flight, primarily due to the speedbrake being moulded closed... I'll have to scrounge a pilot from somewhere too. I'll also be dipping into this side project, an open speedbrake 'plug', as I would like to build more Harriers in the future. I've used the Quickboost resin set before but I find it quite tricky to work with, so I'll make my own instead!!! The GR.3 insert comes from the Hasegawa kit and that will be built into one of the YAV-8B prototypes in the future... Back to the build. All the parts needed to be painted before I can join the fuselage halves. BTW, I kidnapped a pilot from a Fujimi F-14 kit, superb detail I have to say and he/she is wearing U.S. Navy gear too. Super. More to follow soon, thanks for looking and enjoy the weather.
  18. Rejoining with this Hasegawa kit, that I've just received. Picked up by a colleague from Sailsbury show. I've been itching to get a kit to put this scheme onto. Anyway , here are the parts, still in their bags.
  19. Hello Britmodellers, This is 188907 RCAF from AETE in Cold Lake, built in 1996, some Verlinden Big Set added, hope you like it! Cheers, Tom
  20. My dad´s on an Emil trip, started the third now, gonna be Romanian but don´t know which scheme yet. DSC_0005 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0006 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0007 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  21. Well, how about another “what if” history project? This started off as just a regular build of the Hasegawa Kyushu J7W1 Shinden. This aircraft had long fascinated me, with it’s unorthodox canard design and sort of “Star War”ish appearance. I wanted to build the prototype which actually was test flown in the waning days of the war. I've read that it made three 15 minute flights and grainy film from that time seems to confirm that. The build was progressing along nicely when disaster struck. I was using a desk lamp to speed up the paint drying. I left the plane unattended for a few hours and when I returned, the lamp had dropped down several inches and had melted the upper rear fuselage. Yeah. Ooops! After much gnashing of teeth, a “fix” came to me. I could try to adapt the aircraft to turbojet power which was a long-term plan for Kyushu anyway had time allowed for this development. I used body shop spot filler putty to build up the damaged area, deleted some features, added a few more and jumped whole hog into this conversion process. I used the canopy from some long lost P-47, cutting it in half and using the rear-most section for the windscreen. A drop tank from an unknown source was pressed into service too. The prototype had featured some rather long and spindly landing gear to provide ground clearance for the six-bladed prop on the pusher radial engine. I didn’t need that clearance now and so decided to shorten the three landing gear. That led to another problem. When gear were shortened, the wheels wouldn’t mate with the recesses in the wings and forward fuselage. So, I had to relocate the attachment positions for all three. I also shortened the rather tall vertical stabilizers/rudders and created new broader rudders. I envisioned that the J7W1 would’ve evolved into the J7W2 with jet power and then later into the J7W3 with the bubble canopy, shortened rudders and lowered stance. The planes would’ve been delivered to units in an unpainted form with Hinomarus intact and field expedient camouflage then applied. This model was built back in 2004 and upon close inspection, reveals a lot of flaws. I had a bit of trouble blending the new canopy into the fuselage and in general, the build shows my limits then as a modeler (and those haven’t changed as much as I would like now, lol ). But, it was my first conversion of any kind and my first “what if” project too. I imagine this aircraft based in Korea, circa spring of ’47. It’s wearing 5 kill markings, 3 American victims and two Soviet kills, making her pilot a “Japanese Jet Ace”. I hope you enjoy my little World War II fantasy exercise. Thanks for stopping in and taking a look! Gary
  22. Hello guys! 1:72 model from Hasegawa, built 41 years ago, with Microscale Decals. This is my very old build of 1978, first pictures ever to be shown. The clear coat got yellowish on some spots (early Revell clear varnish). I polished the canopy and blew the dust off... Cheers, Tom
  23. Sto facendo, eh? The Hasegawa F-104S. I have no experience with Hasegawa F-104 kits, and im not sure what to expect. But it's a Lockheed design and it sure is pretty.
  24. Intended for the Starfighter STGB but finished a few days past deadline - build here An old mould Hasegawa F-104J which started out as a build in Japanese colours with some scratch building in the cockpit and wheel wells. Unfortunately the near 40 year old decals fell to pieces (I know. Foolish of me to think they’d do otherwise). Kit was halfway toward the shelf of doom (or the bin) when I decided to see what I could do from spare bits and bobs of decals. Some modifications to change a F-104J into a Q-104A and some scrabbling around the internet for references and here we have it as per (the resolution isn’t great but that gave me some leeway for improvising with my cobbled together decals) http://www.916-starfighter.de/916starfighter/pics/camo/55-2957 QF-104A 52957 AFSC Eglin 1964.jpg History (& fate) here http://www.i-f-s.nl/f-104-miscellaneous/qf-104-drones/
  25. I know this doesn’t start till next weekend but want to leave this here to remind me Exhibit A - an elderly 2nd hand Hasegawa F-104 Exhibit B - the somewhat basic innards plus a rogue additional set of HobbyBoss decals
