  1. Hasegawa pretty much released this little gemstone of a tiddler at the same time that British Airways retired their Trident fleet and took delivery of their first 737-236. The kit carries the same registration as BA's first (G-BGDA) which was delivered by Boeing in December 1981. That makes the kit 38 years old and like most of that age, the decals have had to be re-lacquered. The port side of the fuselage had lost its shape in storage and what looks a simple task, proved very difficult to join and make into a decent continuous profiled tube. Having just completed my 1/200 Hasegawa Negus L1011, I felt it an appropriate time to get this other Negus livery kit put together. That's as far as I have got for the moment. This kit make the Airfix 1/72 BE2 kit look big !
  2. Due to waiting time with most other projects, my dad decided to continue with the "roundeled" theme and start the next captured 109. Once again a 1 Sqn SAAF bird, this time captured in Lybia 1942. Like with the other two, he uses a Hasegawa kit and Rising Decals.

  3. 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
  4. So for this years first WIP I wanted something smaller than the B17 I've just finished and strangely ended up with 4 Japanese aircraft. First was the Airfix B5N2 Kate, followed by 2 Airfix Zeros from Aldi for £5 each and finally the Hasegawa KI61 Tony I picked up second hand for £8!. I have picked up Eduard seat belts for the Zeros along with new decals, a set of ski's, interior etch and decals for the Tony as the original decals look quite poor and the Kate has the Eduard etch set but will use the kit decals as they are good.

IMGA0684 by neil Connor, on Flickr 8 bits of etch and a piece of 0.8mm wire later, looks more like it.
  5. Because there has always a 109 to be in work, my dad started already a new one after the Czech Avia. Gonna be a G-4 that has been captured by the SAAF on Sicily in 1943.

  6. Hello, As promised over on the build thread HERE below are the pictures of the old 1/72 Hasegawa boxing of the F-110A (Navy F-4B) Spectre, one of the first two loaned by the Navy to the Air Force for evaluation: I was originally going to make up an F-110A using an old Fujimi F-4B and homemade decals, but since I tracked this kit down, I just took the easy way out. This is an old kit, worth building, but the directions are attrocious, as far as best build order of lots of small details. The build article pointed to above shows several decal and paint marking details probably not readily available to reviewers and builders of this kit years ago. Thanks for looking, Ed
  7. As I already mentioned in the past, my dad wants to get rid of all the old Hasegawa 109s in our stash by building them, only a few are left now. He decided to use once again the Rising Decals sheet and build, besides the SAAF G-4, a former G-10 of NJG11 that was captured by Canadians of 401 Sqn RAF in April 1945.

  8. Hello everyone! Back for another build, but this time quite unintentional, and sort of comically sad, at least in the beginning. After quite a long time looking, I finely found the last missing piece of my Col. George E. Laven collection, the Hasegawa F-110A boxing of it's venerable F-4, released in many flavors over a few years. This particular variant had looked to be scare as hen's teeth, but I tracked one down after all. I never intended to do a build thread on this, but just to add it to the Laven collection. As soon as it came in, I jumped right to it and and started slathering the glue everywhere, riding off wildly in all directions --- and that was my mistake... Just for reference, this is the kit in question, this one in God's Own One True Scale. (There is another boxing, but because children may lurk on this website, I shall NOT speak of it...): As stated above, I jumped right in, starting with the cockpit. No big deal here, as I couldn't find an aftermarket cockpit in this scale, I built it pretty much (but not quite) stock from the box, using the decals for instruments, etc, as there was no raised detail of any kind. I glued together the front gear bay, and the cockpit tub which sits on atop the other. There were no locating marks, but there was a step, indicating how far forward the cockpit went onto the gear bay. I cruised right along, almost in a Snap-Tite sort of way, until suddenly, I noticed something was seriously wrong: You will notice in the above photo that when the front of the lower wing is nestled correctly against the aircraft nose ("A"), that the is a really serious offset at the rear of the wing ("B"). "What The Flying Flapjacks!", I exclaimed (or words to that effect), "there are some serious errors in this kit"! I thought it odd that no other builder or reviewers from yesteryear had mentioned this fault, but I started to investigate further: Note the distance discrepancies between "A" and "B", side-to-side. Well, I thought finally, if I cut out a little bit where shown at "C", I can glue the front, and when dry, skew the rear of the lower wing over to line up: Well, THAT didn't work too well, referencing "A" and "B" above, but it did point out my other boo-boo, where I glued the lower base part of the rear instrument panel in backwards, which the necessitated shaving a little off the rear edge of the ledge between the seats (arrow) -- defiantly my mistake, but the kit's instructions are not really that informative either, as we shall see later on. Anyway, using more liquid glue (in my case Weld-On #3), I dissolved the glue joint, taking things apart in the reverse order of how I;d built them. When I got the fuse separated from the nose, all became clear: In about the very first step, I'd glued the cockpit floor to the front gear bay against the step, but had allowed the rear of the cockpit to be mounted slightly askew, rather than parallel to, the gear bay. 1.5 mm off here, and suddenly the fuselage is mis-aligned 6 or 8mm at the rear of the wing! (I forgot what what the "N" above was supposed to represent, but just note the side-to-side alignment). As I said earlier, there are NO locating tabs or pins for these parts. Whether this is true for just this kit or all Hasegawa F-4 Phantoms, I don't know, as this is the first I've ever built. All can say I can say is anyone building one needs to assure that the gar bay, lower front fuselage and cockpit tub are all aligned the same, and then you won't look like a dufus like me!! Also, on the dufus theme, I forgot to take a picture of the offending parts for you---Doh! Anyway, at this point I decided to do the build thread, not only to warn others about doing really dumb things, but also to correct what I have found to be incorrect on previous builds and reviews of this model. This is NOT because the builders or reviewers were slackers --- it;s just that far more resources are available now on the internet than there were in 2004 or so. So, I'll share what I THINK I've learned, and if you have a differing opinion, please jump in -- I have VERY thick skin -- just ask my wife....kids....neighbors....dog.... Anyway come along if you dare, and not only will I show you the miraculously finessed (and better aligned) model, but I will deign to Share The Tribal Wisdom (or perhaps just my opinion) with you. Until next time, Ed

    1/72 Grumman X-29 - Completed

    Hello all, While I've a few Grumman's to build and a Tomcat was really appealing, I never thought I would get it done in time so going for something a bit simpler. You can read more about this design here. Hasegawa Grumman X-29_box by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Hasegawa Grumman X-29_contents_1 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Just a couple of small sprues, a clear sprue and the decals and that's it. Hasegawa Grumman X-29_contents_2 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Going OOB on this and trying to get a clean, tidy build. And getting ready for the inevitable "aren't-the-wings-on-backwards" gags Cheers and good luck with your builds! Dermot
  10. I introduced myself over on the new members area earlier so thought I'd get my first WIP thread going. I hadn't done any scale modelling during 2018 and with a some time off over the festive break decided I'd have a go at a Christmas present from 2017. I thought it would be a nice easy build that would last just over 10 days but the top and bottom didn't line up so it's been a good amount of filling and sanding to get to this point. The silver lining is it's done the job and got me well and truly back into modelling. I'm going to do the Tomcatters livery as I've seen the Jolly Rogers done a few times. I'd appreciate any feedback, good or bad. Main fuzz Other Parts Complete workbench
  11. Out of the box, including decals. Don't know why the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force chose to mimic the 1943 USN camo scheme, but they did.
  12. 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...]
  13. 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.

    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
  15. Seen in the Eduard Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/EduardCompany 1/48 Lockheed F-104G Starfighter???? - New kit (MiG-21 style!)? - Reboxing: Revellogram, ESCI or Hasegawa + improvement sets? - New PE or/& resin sets? IMHO the DACO set (http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234933435-148-lockheed-f-104-starfighter-updatedetailing-set-by-daco-released) and decals + the Hasegawa kit are good enough. V.P.
  16. Hasegawa is to release in Q1 2019 a 1/72nd Rosenbauer Panther 6X6 Airport Crash Tender - ref. Source: https://www.detailscaleview.com/2019/01/hasegawa-stand-spielwarenmesse-2019-report.html Test build and sprues on display at Nuremberg Toy Fair 2019 V.P.
  17. Hello all, Going to attempt this in the GB timeframe, though i'll need to complete my Typhoon FGR4 for the RAF GB first, but here it is; 1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18E, BuNo 168912 of VFA-87 'Golden Warriors' during their Operation Inherent Resolve cruise in 2017 (this squadron flew alongside VFA-213). This jet shot down a Syrian Su-22 on the 18th June 2017. Kit: Extras: I'll be using an Aires cockpit (in the bag), Steel Beach FOD covers, Pavla seat, Quickboost ECS pipes, Furball decals and 2x GBU-32s from an Academy F-22. Here's the decal option: Can't find many images of the jet itself during the cruise, but it'll be armed with 2x AIM-9x, 2x AIM-120, 2x GBU-32 and 3x GBU-38. It'll be another heavily weathered jet too Not the jet in question, but here's one from the same squadron with the load out i'm going for (minus one GBU-32): Dave
  18. I started this last week but was too lazy to post as due to the Christmas excesses: Its a Telford kit swap purchase which I picked up mainly for the old style Eduard masks it came with. I also realised I have never built a Hasegawa kit and as these 190Ds are highly thought of, why not? It was all there but the decals have seen much better days and are unusable as the carrier film has cracked along with the inks. Thank you fellow IPMS member for not mentioning that on the box... It doesn't bother me as i have alternative markings (replete with stencils) on this Skys sheet and being printed by Cartograf, the decaling should be a joy as per my FW190A. For this, I'll be doing "White 1, on the bottom right as it has a snazzy red spinner. I like red spinners. First job, HG are not fans of the gear up option so the redundant wheels from my Airfix 190A were duly sanded to fit the shallow wells. The gear doors fit beautifully and are exquisitely thin: Now off to sort out that cockpit as I've stalled on my Spitfire racer due to some unforeseen damage. Toodle pip chaps, Anil
  19. Hi Steve Long or any other ex RAN Skyhawk maintainers - I'm embarking on a long term restoration of an old 1/32 Hasegawa A4 Skyhawk of mine that ended up on the SOD - just wondering if I can get some guidance on the cockpit colours - I've seen some colour photos and it looks basically a mix of light greys & black instruments - ejection seat and parachute packs colours too - specifically looking for RAN A4G colours for the cockpit which I assume might be standard USN? - I am in the process of fitting an Avionics resin cockpit set.

  20. 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. the planned configuration of the eventual model (RAF Blue Grey paint job, folded tail, folded rotors, engine blanks, lashed down); c. lots of banter with the much-missed Debs (@Ascoteer) about Cold War ASW; d. some basic explanations of rotary-wing aerodynamics (and push-back against the inexplicable myth that Plank-Wing things that go whoosh are more attractive than Useful Aircraft); e. droop stops, what they are for and how to build them from brass; f. a great deal of discussion of rivets; whether to add them to Hasegawa's entirely smooth fuselage, and if so how. The short answers for those who want to skip the 103 pages is "yes" (because the Seaking has a pretty bumpy skin) and "using HGW rivets". HGW rivets are absolutely superb but be warned; they are not easy to use. I ended up doing them badly once, stripping them off and doing them better the second time - after having to visit Yeovilton and produce my own drawings (Fearless wasn't the first!) to work out where to put them. g. the difference between Sikorsky seats and Westland ones; h. weird Seaking details like the collector cans, pee tube, sonar snub ring & sonobuoy chutes; i. in-flight refuelling from ships (HIFR); j. a minor diversion into restoring an earlier damaged Gazelle model; k. discussions of SACRUs, "Coke cans" and other such load-lifting goodies; l. correcting Revell's Sea Searcher radome (which happily Hasegawa got right); m. the relative merits of masks vs decals/transfers/stickers (& how excellent Maketar Masks are); n. building a tail rotor gust lock & what it was for; o. me being persuaded into adding sliding pilot's windows & other such mad details; p. the joys of a proper micro-chisel in embedding PE convincingly; q. embarrassing accidents involving Seakings landing on top of Sea Harriers; r. the right recipe for RAF Blue Grey paint in Gunze Sanyo lacquers; s. the superb-itude [which isn't a real word, but should be] of the FlightPath 1/48 Seaking conversion set; t. custom-build apparatus for extracting windows which the ham-fisted modeller has shoved into an already sealed fuselage; u. red & yellow engine blanks and how to build them; v. just how sexy a Seaking looks in all black; w. nylon & chain lashings on RN flight decks; x. a second diversion, this time in building a flight deck tractor to tow my aircraft; y. oil dot fading; and z. John Beattie ditching the RNHF Sea Fury... Just to remind you and/or give you a clue about where I'd got to: The tail pylon, Barn Door and tail rotor (complete with gust lock) - plus the beginnings of some weapon stations: Engine blanks! The exquisite FlightPath rescue hoist: A Flight Deck tractor: The rotor head (very much still a work in progress): ...and the aircraft itself (this one wasn't taken today, because it shows the cab before I re-applied masks to the windscreen)... and before I knocked the tail wheel off for the umpteenth time! As she looks today (glossy in preparation for further oil dot fading etc: Still to do? Three main things, all quite complicated: 1. the rotor head (specifically, the snakes' wedding of hydraulic pipes and wires around the blade fold); 2. the weapons stations and associated wiring; 3. the Forth Road Bridge gear ...plus putting it all together. I have just had 6 months away from it, but even before that it had taken me well over a year. Take your seats, Ladeez 'n' Gennelmeeen More soon Crisp
  21. Here's my Hasegawa 1:72 Supermarine Spitfire HF.VII which I built back in 2002. Sadly, Hasegawa only supplied decals for this machine, MD124, RAF, without any unit markings, the other option being an HF.VIII in desert scheme. It was built mostly OOB and I decided to add the slipper tank but painted grey as I had seen in an illustration of another Mk.VII just to give some interest. The main scheme was airbrushed. Thanks for looking Miguel
  22. 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

    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.
  24. This is my build last spring. F/A-18E/F Super Hornet is so popular that I decided to build it with an alternative way. That's the very reason i put it up on a brass rod, and have its landing gears modified as without ground load. Hope you enjoy it...

    Sea Hurricane Mk IIc question

    I have a question that's come to mind about the White Sea Hurricane Mk IIc from HMS Nairana. The Airfix Hurricane/Sea Hurricane Mk IIc painting guide, says the underside is Sky Type S but the Hasegawa instructions say White overall. Which is correct? thanks Mike
