  1. I read a review of this kit that stated it was somewhat poor and lacking detail apart from the steel wheels. Unfortunately the review appears to be right. There is no weld joint detail on the hull or the turret and what detail there is seems quite soft and rounded. The black marks are my initial mark-up for scribing the weld joints because, yes, I'm going to try and build it rather than using the wheels on a Revell Panther as suggested by the above mentioned review. The supplied tyred wheels will be useful for hanging on my Dragon and Revell Jagdpanthers as stowed spares. Also, the
  2. Kit - Hasegawa 1:72 Paint - All enamels Decals - Superscale 72-530 Extras - None Douglas AD6/A-1H Skyraider VA-65, NAS Miramar 1958 Had this in the stash for years, so over the post-Christmas & New Year, dragged it kicking and screaming to the bench. Such an easy build like so many of these 1990's era Hasegawa kits, hardy needed any input from me whatsoever. Painted in 'Old Skool' Humbrol and Xtracolour enamels and used decals from a
  3. Oh, what the heck. I have had this 1987 boxing in my stash since the 1990's and if I don't get it built before long the decs will be well past their shelf life - if they are not already! If I have time I will try and get it built - it will be the third F-15 I have built with one more - an F-15E of the same vintage - left in my stash. The first one was either Revell or Monogram from about 1974, not long after it entered service and I remember it was painted rather badly in my take on the initial "Air Superiority Blue"scheme, but before long it was replaced with what I thought was a
  4. My wife chose my next build for me. This Hasegawa MiG-23 has been in the stash for only about a year. I bought it with the intention of doing an East German MiG. I saw one at the Evergreen museum in Oregon and for some reason the colors in the camouflage really appealed to me. I can't say that this is the correct version of the MiG-23 to match what was in the museum, but I think it is. The decals are not entirely correct either, so this will be a somewhat-less-than-exact build. I've wanted to do a MiG-23 for a long
  5. Hello all, Hot on the heels of my first entry for this GB, here and continuing the QRA theme, I'm throwing this one in the ring too. It's been gradually edging its way to the bench so I'll just have to give in and get it built. Hasegawa's 1/48 Phantom FG.1, marked as XV571 of 43 Squadron based at RAF Leuchars in the 1970s. 43 and 111 were the only frontline Squadrons that operated the FG.1 and formed the Northern QRA for 20 years in the case of 43 Squadron. I've already built an FGR.2 in the grey scheme, so this will be the camouflage grey/green. Kit:
  6. Hi, the first model completed in 2021. A well-known Prowler kit from Hasegawa. Old model, but easy to build. Main camouflage painted with Gunze and TAmiya paints. Moreover, AK RK, AK Xtreme meal, details painted with Vallejo paints. I added Aires ejection seat, the decals are Microscale.
  7. Well there seemed to be something missing from the line up of this very impressive and very diverse GB, there's no Phantom's!! Can't have that in an Interceptors GB now can we, especially as she was first introduced into service as an interceptor for the US Navy. I won't be building a US Navy one though as I shall be building an F-4E. My choice is to build a USAF one from the 57th FIS based in Iceland in the ADC grey scheme. On to the kit itself. I shall be building the Hasegawa 1/48 kit which whilst not the newest or best around is still a good kit and I actually have one (okay maybe mor
  8. 2nd finish for 2021 is Hasegawa's A1H Douglas Skyraider as Paper Tiger II. On the 4th November 1965 a special device codenamed "Operation Saniflow" was dropped from Paper Tiger II by CDR Clarence ‘Bill’ Stoddard on a target in Vietnam. You can read the full story on line. The Hasegawa kit is the usual, nice detail, fine panel lines but I'm finding that Hasegawa's attention to detail lacks in some places. The box art shows the aircraft fitted with Mk82's and the toilet bomb but actual pictures show what looks like M117 and Mk20's. The toilet bomb is pretty good but is missing a tail cone so thi
  9. All good things come in three. Besides the Beriev and Kingfisher my dad starts now a Rufe, doing the boxart scheme. DSC_0004 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  10. This is a trip back to my youth. I bought 3 non-running S1/KH250 when I was 17. I managed to piece together a working KH250 and this was my first bike after ditching the L-Plates. It also started a journey where I owned a KH400, KH500 and an H2 750 before I moved onto the Suzuki stink pots which in turn culminated in an RG500. Of the Kawasaki triples, the 250 was my favourite, the 400 was more powerful but not as much fun, the 500 kept breaking down (ignition issues) and the 750 just wanted to kill me. This is also my first Hasegawa bike kit, and it is a beauty! The build and
  11. This is my entry for the Interceptors Group Build. Hasegawa's 1/72 Kawanishi N1K2-J Shidenkai 'George'. It entered service in 1944 and was one of the few Japanese Navy aircraft that could offer a pilot a chance against the Hellcat and Corsair. The kit has two decal options both from the elite naval unit the 343rd Naval Kokutai.
  12. Ready to return to the jet age! Hasegawa F-15C. Decals from the Bullseye Desert Storm Eagles set. I haven't decided which plane yet, but it will be one of the air-to-air victory machines.
  13. #3/2021 And my dad has finished his first 109 in 2021. Hasegawa kit, bomb rack and 50kg bombs from Zvezda, Eduard seatbelts, EZ Line for antenna wires, plastic rods and lead wire for the brake lines. RLM74/75/76 painted with AK Real Color. Shortened the legs to get a more realistic look. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235084867-stranded-jabomesserschmitt-bf109f-4b-10jg53/ On March 27th 1942, Unteroffizier Felix Sauer, serving with 10.(Jabo)/JG53, had to make an emergency landing on the beach of Sicily due to an engine failure
  14. So, my dad started the last Hasegawa 109 from our stash. Doing a JG53 fighterbomber. DSC_0003 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0004 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0005 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr Eduard seatbelts DSC_0006 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  15. Ki-84 Hayate "Frank" | 1/72 | Hasegawa 29th Sentai, 2nd Chutai, Taiwan, 1945 Finished this on 12/27/2020. This was built to replace the same model kit/subject that I did in college. Not that it was a bad build, just that it was painted with silver spray paint and this one takes advantage of everything I'd learned about NMF paints in the last few years. I started thinking this would be a quick and straightforward build, but events conspired against me and it was one challenge after another. At one point I had to strip all the paint off the model and start over. Still
  16. Hi there I have been planning this build for a long time. MarkSH and The Real Mr Ed have privided the inspiration to get started. The NF-104A was built as a high altitude trainer for X-15 pilots even though only Pete Knight flew both planes. Chuck Yeager made an attempt on the world alitude record but experienced problems and crashed. The main chamges the the stabd Starfighter were: Rocket engine in the tail for additional altitude Reaction control thrusters in nose and wing tips Extended wing tips Extended intake spikes 7 ft long in
  17. Hi, This is the Hasegawa F-16A that I'll build for the GB. I've been wanting to build this one for a long time. The load-out will feature 2 TER's with 3 Mk82's with airburst fuses. Shawn Hull of Shull24 resin made the fuses for me many years ago. Cheers, Stefan.
  18. For a 109 group build with some friends on our modelling WhatsApp group chat and on Scalemates I participated with two 109s. This one is the Gartex(Hasegawa) Bf 109G03 V48. The V48 was the third airframe of the G series and this one was modified with a V-tail in 1943. It proved to be unstable so further development was halted. The Gartex 109 is essentially the Hasegawa Bf 109F kit with some extra resin and metal parts to modify it to represent a early G airframe with the V-tail modification. Kit was OOB except for the decals, since the kit ones were very brittle I used everything f

  21. 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
  22. #26/2020 So, my dad has finished his third racecar this year after a decades long hiatus. Well, it´s no show winner but at least it is finished and didn´t go to model heaven. Mostly typical Hasegawa quality. Only mounting the wheels was a bit tricky. My dad needed some force to do that and broke off some parts. Luckily he was able to fix the damages. Another tricky part are all those narrow stripe decals, especiall the ones on the lower body. Although my dad sealed them several times with clear coat, parts of them came off when touching the model too much. Had to repaint some of the
  23. #1/2021 My dad finished his first model in the new year already. Hasegawa kit, part of the decals from the sparesbox, Eduard seatbelts, EZ line for antenna wire, plastic rods and lead wire for the brake lines, plasic rods for the landing gear indicators on the upper wings. Painted with MRP RLM82/83/76.

  24. I have developed an interest in the aircraft operated by USAF Air Defense Command and Aerospace Defense Command over the time period 1946 -1980 favouring the later years. The plan is to build a representative model of a number of types operated during this period. I have already completed a Lockheed F-94 Starfire, for the Lockheed GB. I am being ambitious for this GB with three builds planned. The first is the Hasegawa’s 1/72 North American F-86D Sabre Dog. I am also planning a Meng F-102A and Meng F-106A, again both in 1/72.
  25. Hello, First build complete in 2021. In fact, the very last of 2020. It's the Hasegawa kit, a good ol' boy, with no real difficulty. The plane is from the GC II/18 Saintonge, of the french air force, seen late 1945 in France. AK real colors acryl for the top Dark Green and Ocena grey, Tamiya for the underside Medium Sea Grey. And Carpena decals, from a Tamiya limited run of the Mk.V, for french market only. these were awful, as stiff as cardboard, almost not reacting to DACO strong ! Here are the piccies. As usual, crits and comments welcome.
