  1. Hi everyone, This is my 1/72 H8K2 Emily, unfortunately the right tail stabilizer isn't perfectly at 90° with the vertical tail plain I hope that you guys will like this massive seaplane as much as i do
  2. All right then, time to get started! My project for this group build is the Grumman/General Dynamics F-111B. I suspect that everyone knows the story of this aircraft and its development, but if not I'll direct you to the mother-lode of F-111B information later on in this post. My initial idea is to model one of the Phoenix missile test aircraft, and BuNo 151972 seems a good candidate. This, of course, will be a conversion and my base kit will be the Hasegawa 1:72 RAAF F-111C/G. This is a great kit, and contains all necessary parts to build either the C or G model. The G is essentially the same as the FB-111 as you know. Let's see what we get (and it's so much that it's difficult to close the box without squeezing the contents). First, the specific kit I'm using: Inside we find a lot of styrene! This next photo may look like two copies of the same sprue, but they are different - one is sprue C and the other sprue D. The difference is primarily with respect to the intakes as the F-111C and G had variations in this area (Triple Plow I vs. Triple Plow II). Since 151972 did not have either of these intakes, I will be modifying the Triple Plow I. And the rest: And finally two of these babies: I've acquired several bits of aftermarket goodies to help with this conversion, starting with the set from Pete's Hangar which unfortunately is no longer available. My understanding is that this set has a few problems, but they don't look to be insurmountable. Apparently, the shape of the nose, and its demarcation with the fuselage, is not quite right, but that's why they call it modelling. Some additional decal sheets that may be of help - the sheet from Pete's Hangar is also pictured here, but the other two sheets are from Microscale and are quite old. 72-132 includes the markings for 151972, and 72-452 includes stenciling for the early models of the F-111. Also shown here is the sheet from the kit, not sure if any of this will be used. The Phoenix testing logo is different between the Microscale and Pete's sheets, and based on photographs it looks like Microscale is better (for instance, Pete's omits the fire that the Phoenix bird is emerging from, the USMC globe and USN anchor). I hope those old Microscale sheets are still good! Some additional aftermarket that may be used. Obviously, not all of the photoetch for the F-111D/F is appropriate, but some of it may be useful. We'll see. The masks are fine, but what's this with the ejection seats for a B-57 Canberra? The F-111 had a ejection capsule! Well, yes it did, after a fashion. However, the first three F-111B prototypes, including 151972, did not have the capsule, and were instead fitted with Douglas Escapac ejection seats. According to the Ejection Site, they were model 1C. The resin seats from Pavla are models 1C-6, and have the right basic shape. But I suspect they will need some alteration or enhancement before the end of the day. Finally, the old Revell kit from 1966 will also be used, as it contains a lot of parts that will help, like the knife edge boat tail, aft fuselage bullet fairings (speed bumps as they were called), etc. I picked this up at a model show, and although it's been started (the B/C/FB long wing tips have been glued to the wings) that won't be a problem as I won't be using them. This is one of the few kits produced which claimed to be a B model. Like a lot of kits from the 60s, this one came out while the aircraft was still being developed, and contains several issues. But I think it will come in handy nonetheless. The loose parts, rolling around in the box: And the ones still clinging to the runners: Also in the box were these four pylons, which I suspect are from an F/A-18. But they have a shape resemblance (kind of) to the pylons used by 151972 for the Phoenix missiles. I will be checking if they are close to being the right size, and might work for the model. Again, we'll see. Perhaps they can be modified, maybe not. But it was nice of the chap who sold this to me to include them! The Phoenix missiles will probably be sourced from a Hasegawa F-14A kit, but will need some mods to represent the missiles used in the F-111B test program. Now, about that mother-lode. If you're going to build an F-111B, you simply have to have this monograph: Tommy is the F-111B subject matter expert, and he contributes regularly to Britmodeller. I expect he will show up here to keep me on the straight and moral path. If you follow this link, you'll go to Tommy's blog where he has posted several links to articles that concern the F-111B. There are also instructions for how to obtain the amendments and errata for the F-111B monograph. All of this material taken together remains the prime reference for this much-maligned bird. Cheers, Bill

    On the Prowl(er) - 1/72 Haseagwa

    My entry will be a Hasegawa EA-6B. I have an Eduard? cockpit for an ICAP II bird and Wolfpack folded wing set for the build. Decals will bee from a Cutting Edge sheet for a Marine jet, final scheme to be decided.
  4. Hallo again The Mitsubishi F-1 in 1/48 from Hasegawa was the basic for this model. The model is equipped with training weapons. The colorful air-ship rocket is the eye catcher. Since much of the F-1 fleet is stationed in the very north at Hokkaido, the surrounding is very different from central Japan. Here we are at the same northern position as Vladivostok i.e. Sapporo. The northern part is very close to Sakhalin and the eastern part faces the Kuril Islands. This F-1 are always in close contact with the Russian air force. Happy modelling
  5. Hallo again I will start an F-4E Kurnas in 1/48 from Hasegawa. The kit as shown in the photo. My aircraft will be F-4E Kurnas from Hammer squadron #134. Carrying the Popeye air/surface guided missile with data link pod. The a/c will have Hebrew stenciling. It is from the year 1987/1988. My detail sets are very accurate and I hope that this kit will be despite the age still worth to build. By the way: You get soon access to walk around also from the Kurnas If you built already this kit with the Aires cockpit, I would really enjoy to listen to your experience! Happy modelling
  6. I think I want to join in with this; 20181213_173634 by mario binsar 20181213_173644 by mario binsar I took this kit with me when I went on board my current hitch four weeks ago, but haven't got the mojo to start building it... Until I saw this GB. My plan is to scribe it and build it with Twobobs' Santa Tracker decal (well it's a holiday season now, isn't it?). So, premisson to come aboard, gents? Cheers, Mario
  7. Hi guys here is my Hasegawa F-16 from the Royal Netherlands Airforce as it participated in the NATO Tigermeet held at Fairford in 1991. I have build it for the F-16 STGB here at Britmodeller. Hope you like it. NATO Tigermeet 1991 Fairford UK F-16A Royal Netherlands Airforce 313 squadron Hasegawa 1/48 kit with Quickboost ejection seat, wheel doors, Aires exhaust nozzle, and from Master the pitot tube, AOA probes and static dischargers. Build thread can be found here Erik
  8. The first aircraft is an Italeri re-box of the Hasegawa kit and the second is the Hasegawa in 1:48. The first aircraft is also my first attempt at mottling. I would love to say the second aircraft was my first attempt at smoke rings but Italeri provided these as decals and if you look closely you can see the spray pattern. Well done Italeri.

    A6E Intruder

    Evening all, here is my entry the A-6E Intruder. I picked this up fairly cheap and thought it would look good in my 1/72 US Navy jets.........however on closer inspection I have decided to turn it into a bit of an experiment to share in this GB. The kit doesn’t seem great and has some large raised panel lines, so first up I’ll try removing and rescribing those. Hopefully then I’ll get a chance to fire up the airbrush and try that out too and drift away from the faithful hairy sticks. Hopefully a fun adventure whatever the outcome with a audience full of good advice for two new techniques. Here are the pics...watch this space. Plenty to clean up before the rescribing starts, here is one of many examples may have to fish out “Flight of the Intruder” and a bottle of red for a few evenings of sanding and scribing. Cheers for now Graham
  10. Place-holder. Probably Wildcat, Hellcat, or Bearcat... Oh, but what about that TF-9J? [Edit: Probably too ambitious for me now, but we'll see...]
  11. I have started on a diorama to show off the Hitachi Zaxis 135US Excavator i built earlier. If you care to have a look at the excavator itself it is here: Since an excavator is intended to dig, as far as I know , I wanted the scene to show just that - an excavator digging a hole. I have settled on road work scene where one of the lanes of a street has been blocked off with barriers, and the behind the barriers the digger is at work. My scene plan/sketch looks like this: Apart from the stuff shown above I intend to add other details as well, like various signs, traffic cones and likewise. So far I have also cut the diorama base from piece of extruded foam. The foam is 5 cm (2") thick which hopefully is enough for the depth of a decent looking hole.
  12. Tyas

    Yes. Another Tomcat here.

    Yes, yes, yes, I know. Another F-14 joining the Grumman GB. I was planning to just look around my local store for a bottle of thinner when I realized this Hasegawa F-14A is on sale for Rp 490k (about GBP24,49 in old money), and they're giving 10% discount. A Tomcat? Why of course I can't miss it, even though I already got 3 and my brother threatened to launch any of them if I'm adding another one. This build is going to be a long build... Oh, and I'll be making 161276, the CO bird that was dispatched from USS Kitty Hawk during Operation Iraqi Freedom, dropping 45 bombs and contributed to VF-154 Black Knights' tally of 358 LGBs dropped during its last stint with CVW-5 at Persian Gulf. Let's hope I can make it in time before the deadline...
  13. As with just about every fighter plane in the USAF in the 1950's and 1960's, the F-4 also had a dedicated reconnaissance version, the RF-4C. You could say this was the first true modern tactical recce platform. Traditional cameras, IR cameras and Side Looking Radar, the RF-4C had it all. And combined with a big, strong airframe, a two men crew, and two powerful and reliable J-79 engines, it was a world beating design. First flown in 1964, with more than 500 built, the last operational RF-4C's were only retired in South Korean service a few years ago, and the export RF-4E is still flying today in both Japan and Iran. In the early days, though, there were some issues to be solved with these brand new jets. As explained in the book Tactical Reconnaissance in the Cold War by Doug Gordon(highly recommended): I will be building a 1/72 Hasegawa RF-4C as a very early, about 1965, Alconbury based jet, in the US Navy colours of light gull grey and white. The decals come with the kit, although they are the traditional Hasegawa style, with the creamy white, so some decals will have to be sourced elsewhere. In the end it will look something like the ones below, although mine will be FJ-023. So far I just glued the cockpit bits together and put it on the lower front fuselage part. I also glued the right front and rear parts together, which makes things easier to align later on. I don't plan to use any aftermarket, apart from some decals. But you never know, I might get some seats or exhaust. Thanks for looking.
  14. Good morning! Here is my Mitsubishi J2M3 Type 21 Raiden “Jack”, 352-20, flown by Lt. Aoki, 352 Naval Kokutai, Omura Naval Air Base, Japan, 1945. It's the Hasegawa 1:72 kit which I built OOB in 2004. The green and grey were airbrushed as well as the varnish. The rest of the scheme was painted with brush. Thanks for looking Miguel
  15. #31/2018 And a second finished model for today. Used a Hasegawa A-9 kit, besides kit markings the aircraft number and the Werknummer came from Kagero Topcolors 13 "Operation Bodenplatte". Gunze RLM paints, Ultracast resin seat, EZ Line for the antenna, spinner spirale is painted. The model shows the aircraft of Unteroffizier Alfred Fritzsche, 4./JG1. He was downed on Jan 1st 1945 during Op Bodenplatte near Ghent. After a belly landing he crashed into a house, was severly wounded and became a POW.

  16. I decided to give Flickr for Android a try, since my table is currently occupied by the Shinden. Its pretty bad, it doesn't let me share the images because "there isn't an image for that url." I began the model today, and this is its current state, ready for painting. I decided to leave out the canards until after decaling, putting the aircraft on its gear and adding the propeller assembly, should I need to add more weight in the nose. Hasegawa recommends 1g of weight to be put as forward as possible, but I added a 10g weight and a smaller one ahead of it above the nose gear well. I don't know if that will be enough to avoid tail sitting, but the landing gear is really skinny and tall, and I don't want to add useless weight and overstress the nose gear. What do you guys think, will I need more weight?
  17. After my dad has finished a Tamiya late war A-8 recently, he already started a Hasegawa late war A-8 that took part in the Operation Bodenplatte on January 1st 1945. He´ll use this Hasegawa A-9 kit DSC_0009 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr using decals from this Kagero TopColors booklet DSC_0010 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr doing this scheme DSC_0011 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  18. All this buzz nowadays with magnificent Tempests, amiaing 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 atleast 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 familyshoot 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 egpy 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!
  19. Hello everyone! Here is one of several Bf 109Gs I built during the last couple of years (this one in 2016). It's the Hasegawa 1:72 Bf 109G-6, but the old kit, before they made new tools. It represents Bf 109G-6/R6 Trop White 9, flown by Oberleutnant Emil Clade, Staffelkapitan 7./JG27, Luftwaffe, Kalamaki, Greece, January 1944. This was an enjoyable OOB build with pilot included (for old times' sake!), except for the decals which came from an Academy kit since those of the kit had yellowed and were poorly printed anyhow (Academy, Italeri and Hasegawa all had this option!). It was completely painted and varnished by brush and I was very pleased with how it came out. Thanks for looking Miguel
  20. Hallo again This is my Hellcat from Hasegawa in 1/48. Together with Wolfpack resin wing fold set it became a nice easy to build model. Nothing special ahead when finishing this model. Happy modelling
  21. Latest effort - a car door Typhoon. I like the Typhoon, big ugly brute that it is, and for some reason the car door version really grabs me - don't know why - just like the idea of the car door complete with window wind down. I'm sure the pilots didn't like it much. Still - box Contents And a few extras I've decided to add to it. Starting with the cockpit I started by painting the cockpit internals black primer, and then sprayed individual areas with interior green, so as to leave some darker areas around details and try and lend some depth. After that I picked out details using dry brushing techniques, as well as making use of prismacolor pencils, which make highlighting knobs and switches quite straightforward. Gradually moving towards a more complete cockpit. The instrument panel is made up of a resin casting, and three separate etch metal bezels, which are laid on top of three instrument transparencies for dials. I must say I'm pretty happy with how this has turned out so far. I still have to finish seat belts and add those, bit dry fitting shows that this assembly will fit very nicely into the fuselage.
  22. Hallo again This is my Fw-190 D in 1/32. The kit is Hasegawa. Here I used the Aires cockpit set. However, I failed to install it correct. Due to an awful instruction, the dashboard is in a wrong position. The proper instruction for resin cockpits or resin parts anyway, are hardly to find. Wolfpack is (so far as my experience) the best, but I do not use it often. Would like to hear your response. Anyway, all markings I sprayed. No decal! Also the stencils are wet transfers. Happy modelling
  23. Hello, I recently bought a 1:48 Hasegawa Bf 109G-2, and it doesn't have the clear parts, would the Eduard clear parts fit on the Hasegawa cockpit? Cheers! P.D: I would need an urgent answer.
  24. Hello All, This one has also been on the 'shelf of doom' for some time. Probably about 4 or 5 years... It's the Hasegawa Ferrari 348 tb. It'll go well with the other Ferraris that I have been working on. What with the 308 having been finished, and the 288 GTO nearly complete, I thought that I would clear the decks of old builds and add this one to the list of 'in progress'. The box. A pretty car, if not quite so beautiful as the 308 & 288... The sprues. It doesn't look a lot, but the engine is already built and almost ready to be put aside. ... and, the instructions. I'm hoping that this Hasegawa kit will be a bit more successful than a couple of others I tried... I tried to construct the 1/24th Ferrari F189, but it went completely pear-shaped on me and the body work would not fit. I binned it! I also tried the 1/24th Jaguar XJR8 (or was it the XJR9?, I can't remember). That was going well, then I managed to split the rather large wind-screen! That ended up as spare parts... On the other hand, the 1/32nd F-16 seems to going rather better. Anyway, more pictures... The body has been painted with Halfords acrylic spray paint. I can't remember the colour. But I don't need any more (unless I screw up with the cement!). If I do, I'm pretty certain that I can mix up the right cocktail of (Tamiya) colours to get a near enough match. The engine, not quite fully assembled. Again, I have added ignition leads. No engine looks right without ignition leads, except a Diesel. Actually, my wife's Meriva is a petrol, and the ignition leads are nowhere to be seen. Each spark-plug is fed by it's own coil in an ignition block that sits on top of them. Anyway, utterly irrelevant in this case, as the 348 has separate leads to each plug, and they go ... somewhere! (More on that later!) The wheels. Matt chrome seems to work on car kits. I always thing the the high-chrome finish looks too toy-like on 1/24th scale! (Actually, I built the Revell 1/8th scale Jag, and the chrome on that looked too bright and toy-like!) The windows, door-mirrors and the engine cover. That's it for the moment. Thanks for looking, Alan.
  25. I have been building this Hasegawa Hitachi Zaxis 135US excavator kit: If you care to have a look, the build thread is here: And here are some pictures of the result. I'm quite pleased with the outcome, but as always I also see a lot of flaws, but let's not dwell more on that right now. Please enjoy! Lennart
