  1. I've had this kit in the stash for almost 30 years, it was released by Hasegawa in 1991 when I rushed out to buy it. While it's been waiting patiently in the stash I have obtained an Airies resin and p/e cockpit set and some resin hollow exhausts by QuickBoost for it. Here is the box art and the AM. Here is the obligatory photo of the untouched kit parts. This is my third build in this GB and my first ever Luftwaffe desert build, I have bought some Mr Color RLM 78 and 79 paint so once my other builds are almost finished I can get this started. Thanks for looking, any quest
  2. Time I picked this up again (as several of you have hinted in not entirely subtle ways of late...) It's been 6 months since I last did anything to this model, so some of you might not even be aware of it. If so, I hope you have some spare time, because if you are really interested you have a mere 103 pages of build log to get through... "Fill yer boots" as they say in the Navy. The original build has already walked through: a. the back story (I ditched this aircraft in July 1988, flying from Ark Royal just outside the mouth of the Med); b. t
  3. I will be entering a Republic of Singapore Air Force F-16A for this group build. I'll be using the Hasegawa F-16A kit as a base and adding decals from Siam Scale as well as a metal pitot probe and AoA sensors by Hobby Decal. Some background on this Viper: Back in the mid-1980s, the RSAF purchased a total of 8 F-16s (4 As and 4 Bs) under the Peace Carvin FMS programme. These jets were initially based at Luke Air Force Base in Arizona for pilot training and were subsequently transferred back to Singapore in January 1990. Once the RSAF received their F-16
  4. Against my better judgement I'll start one here right at the end. The kit was already started (barely) by the previous owner, then I suspect got frustrated with the fit of the resin cockpit (there appears to have been a prior attempt too). I picked the kit up from a yard sale at a hobby shop for a paltry $10. Hopefully nothing critical is missing. There is a bunch of resin bits.....some decent, some not so much. Not sure what all I'm going to use but it will give me some options to pick through. Anyways, here is the starting gate.
  5. Hi, Yes, I'm going to try to make another Skyhawk in this GB. I was hoping to build an A-4C for this GB, aiming for an option on the new Bullseye models sheet. But that sheet isn't here yet. I do have the decals for a VA-66 A-4C that I've always wanted. Cheers, Stefan.
  6. Hi, Yes, another one! I had always considered doing an A-4F for this GB too. This afternoon, while spraying some primer on parts for the A-4C and the A-4E, I noticed that I had poured out and diluted a bit too much paint. I went for the A-4F and sprayed the primer on the spots that I knew would be needing them. This was also a sensibly priced Hasegawa Skyhawk, bought second-hand from the guys of the Amay Modeller's Club for 23 Euro's. The decals will be from AoA decals. I wanted to build one of the VA-155 options but was a bit torn between the
  7. Have 4 to choose from in the stash; gone for the one I think I will complete in time with minimal stores. Only AB is Eduard etch (kit pit is very bare); coloured etch which is new to me; help and recommendations on what glue to use to fix folded parts appreciated. Searching for photos of the 2 kit decal options I found the next assignment for 82-1041 was service in the Oregon ANG and a photo showing it weather beaten; which is doable with a mix of kit and SuperScale decals. Bench should be clear for next Saturday. Chris
  8. 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
  9. Ok, I'm probably getting in over my head...but being a dual kit just building one doesn't actually open up any additional stash space so.....in we go to the deep end. And with any trickyrich GB, a minimum amount of AM must be included. Whilst just a taste, I hope I've reached the resin minimums. I'll probably be taking this with my on my camping trip and work on some of the sub-assemblies and anything that can be brush painted. All the major painting and finishing work will happen down the road after I've gotten the A-4 and Mustang builds clear of the bench.
  10. Hi all This is Hasegawa's 1/48 Fw190A-4, finished in the markings of Oblt. Otto Stammberger's 'Weiss 9' of 4/JG26 in 1943. Stammberger was shot down in this aircraft on 13th May 43, during a dogfight with Spitfires of 331 (Norwegian) sqdn RAF over St Omer. He baled out with a damaged parachute, which did not fully open, so he hit the ground pretty hard and spent the next 10 days in a coma. He did return to combat duty, but after a total of seven victories he ended the war in various staff positions, He became manager of a large department store in Germany after the war, passing
  11. Here's my first project for this GB, a Hasegawa Lancaster in Rescue mode! Will be done OOB apart from Pavla intakes and CMK post war treaded tyre wheels. Any recommendations for the Orange is welcome please! The fuselage band is included as a decal but I will just airbrush that as I don't fancy trying to match the colour! The book doesn't show any real variation in the Aluminium panelling but I may add some slightly different shades here and there just to break up the overall effect, we'll see how it goes. Davey
  12. 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

  14. The aircraft part of this build was completed for the Gulf War GB a couple of weeks ago, but I was unable to get the weapons loadout finished for the deadline. I wrapped up the three AGM-88's that I wanted to add yesterday, and fixed those and a pair of AIM-9's in place last night. With the A-7E gradually being retired when Iraq invaded Kuwait in early August 1990, I wanted to try and portray a tired looking aircraft on what would be a "Last Hurrah" for this aircraft type on its final deployment. To achieve that I sprayed patches of Lifecolor's FS36375 over an overall base of FS36320, th
  15. Hi guys. Here's my first build in 20 years and first attempt at using an airbrush. I don't really know what I'm doing so any advice, feedback and constructive criticism is apreciated Scalemates Project link Scalemates WIP gallery Practice install piece Press fit into place
  16. As a chopper fan I built the Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King out of about 30 years old Hasegawa kit. I have always liked the looks of the Sea King and remember well the number 66 that used to fetch the astronauts of many Apollo missions from the sea. Despite its age the kit was of very good quality with many details and easy to assemble. However, the model took me quite a long time to build since there were lots of parts and big number of decals to attach. From the aftermarket I ordered Eduard window masks and interior photoeches for the cockpit. The kit contained decals and painting instru
  17. 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
  18. My entry to this Group Build will be a two-seater Bf 109 G-12. Although I have over fifty Bf 109 kits in the stash, I have only one kit of the G-12, which is a rather old Hobbycraft kit:- Scalemates indicates that this is a reboxing of an earlier kit by the Polish firm Intech:- However, according to Lynn Ritger, in his excellent SAM Publications Guide to the Messerschmitt Bf 109 - Part 2, the Hobbycraft kit is a very poor one. He recommends that the Hobbycraft fuselage can be used, with a Hasegawa G-
  19. After 2020 (link) newsletters, the Hasegawa news for January 2021. Source: http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/month/202101/ V.P.
  20. Here is a late Bf 109 from the licensed production by IAR. 15 Ga-4 and 60 Ga-6 were built between 1944-1947. Main factory IAR Brasov was more or less bombed out in april-may 1944 and the production continued in an IAR work shop in Caransebes. The kit is the old Hasegawa and with RB Production decals and the typical IAR bulges for the MG131. Easy camoflage, almost everything is dipped in AMT-7 This is one of two 109s from Regimentul 180 in Rosjori that defected to Yugoslavia 1952. Flight leader Captain Gh. Gheorghiu in 363 and his wingman Lt.
  21. 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
  22. Hi, A bit late, but I'd like to join in with this 1/48 Hasegawa A-4E. I do have some time off between now and the 6th of June, so there's a chance I might finish in time. It's a subject that I have wanted to build for quite a while...a VA-46 Skyhawk using the Victory Productions sheet. This one (BuNo150118) was lost in the Forrestal fire. Cheers, Stefan.
  23. The WIP for this build is at: This is my penultimate Hasegawa kit. They're relatively cheap and it shows, taking a lot of extra work to add detail to achieve some semblance of accuracy. Before I bought the Panther I'd also got a Jagdpanzer IV L/48 which I will make my final Hasegawa kit. My Panther is not the 100% accurate depiction as produced by the Britmodeller experts; but I'm not claiming to be any sort of expert, although I find many of them exceedingly helpful with very useful tips and pointers. I just enjoy building kits and that's what counts for me and, maybe I'll work up t
  24. 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
  25. Hello ! I'm in ! just have to finish a P-38 next week and i'll join you with my third haseg scooter in nineteen years. The first one The second one Usually I do not make several edits of the same plane. But this kit being what it is, a real gem, and this plane beeing what it is, a pure badass, this will be a real pleasure to build here a M version in lowiz colours (still have to choose the one, surely VMA311). Some goodies will be added : Aires cockpit and wheels bays, RES wheels and Furball decals from "Lo V
