  1. After 2019 (link)newsletters, the Hasegawa news for January 2020. Source: http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/month/202001/ V.P.
  2. 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.
  3. Besides the P-40, my dad starts another lend-lease project. 101523-10849-pristine by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0001 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr gonna be "white lightning" DSC_0002 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  4. Here´s the newest upcoming project by my dad. Being right on the way with the Soviet 109, he decided to stay on the Eastern Front. DSC_0009 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr DSC_0010 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr gonna do the tiger DSC_0012 by grimreaper110, auf Flickr
  5. Since work has stalled on my Flying Tigers P-40B waiting for decals, I thought I'd start another kit. I'm still in the mood to do a P-40, so I dug this one out of the stash: I bought it because of the Burma Banshee decals it had for an alternate theme, but I decided that I really liked the markings on the box art. It all turned out great, because my quest for a Burma Banshee, led me to finish my P-40M, which frankly looks way better than the markings in this kit. Not much in the way of parts: and some pretty nice looking decals: Unfortunately, being an older Hasegawa kit, there isn't much in the way of cockpit detail, and no detail on the sides of the cockpit. So, I had to make do with what I had. I painted the sides and just scuffed them up with Tamiya weathering pastels. The cockpit came out a little better though with some Eduard PE seat belts added Now, I'm just waiting for the radiator intake parts that I glued into a fuselage half to dry so I can button up the fuselage....
  6. Hello Please check out my newest project. It's Akagi in 1:350 scale from Hasegawa plus tones of PE. Cheers
  7. G'day all. I've just put the final touches on the Royal Thailand Air Force F-16B from the 1/48 Hasegawa kit. I had a lot of fun building it and learnt a few things at the same time. Details are the Hasegawa F-16B Plus Fighting Falcon, Quick boost seats with Eduard ejection ring pulls, W&D Studio pitot and AoA probes, Mk82 slicks from the Hasegawa weapons set, AIM-9L from an AFV Club F-5E, Siam scale decals (meh... Not the greatest), Verlinden ground power and comms panel and homemade intake and exhaust plugs. The rear exhaust bung is made from Tamiya epoxy putty. And paints are the ubiquitous Mr Color. The front canopy section even has the smoke tint! Now to make the Polish Tiger meet version... Hope you like it. Cheers, Mick
  8. Hi, I would like to enter into my second GB with Hasegawa's classic floatplane fighter. I have long been fascinated by this plane: floatplane fighters are one of the most bizarre categories of military aircraft and almost a mission impossible to design. Floats are hard to reconcile with low weights and good aerodynamics. Nevertheless, Kawanishi had done a good job with the N1K1 (based on the equally fascinating E15K fast reconnaissance aircraft). A design so sound that it was later turned into a land-based fighter, the N1K1-J. This must be one of the very few cases when a floatplane or flying boat was converted into a conventional plane and not the other way round. The only other case, I can think of, was the Piaggio P.166 which was based on the amphibian P.136. Do you know others?
  9. Hi guys, here is another car project and I really do have my work cut out with this one, it’s been in my stash for about 5 years, dug it out last week and took a peek at it, good points are that it has a very nice accurate looking body and all the fenders and details on the outside of the car look good, however inside was very poor, no engine bay, and worst of all very inaccurate seats and dash. Not surprising really as the 66 T-Bird had very elaborate seat and dash detailing, so what to do? Well, looking at YouTube videos I found that the convertible versions looked much better, so I decided to bite the bullet and cut the roof off! Now this committed me to scratch building and modifying the kit interior details, the main objective was to give a fairly good representation of a top down 66 T-Bird that was ready to cruise or had just been fully restored to show winning condition. Here are some photos of a restored 66 T-Bird that I am trying to copy in model form. I decided the body would be painted in blue metallic with white leather and blue interior, with lashings of chrome details. So I hope to update you with progress soon, now where’s that hacksaw?
  10. I finished the Corsair today, and there wad enough light in my room, so I was able to take some photos of the finished model. The canopy didn't fit at all, it's too narrow in the end and just hangs above the canopy railing. I also lost one of the gun mounts, and had to fashion a new one from one of the pieces.
  11. Hello guys, here's a glimpse of what will be my next model, an F4U-5 from the Argentinian Navy in 1:48, the kit will be Hasegawa's F4U-5N with parts for a night fighter, but also for the daylight fighter. I'll use Phoenix decals as the only aftermarket. I bought two sheets in case one fails me, but both sheets look ok. All the options are for daylight aircraft, which carried a Light Gull Grey upper colours and white undersides, together with white landing gears and wheel hubs. Click the follow button if you'd like to see how this build goes!
  12. I present the Hasegawa Embraer 170 in the well-known “Krakow and Malopolska invite” livery carried by SP-LDC between 2009 and 2012. The tail features Leonardo da Vinci’s painting “Lady with an Ermine” which is one of Poland’s national treasures. Although the kit has been around for many years this is the first time I’ve built it. It was seriously overpriced on UK release but several years ago I managed to get a couple at a sensible price via HobbyLink Japan and they’ve been in my stash ever since. It seems that currently the kit is only available in Japan and various Japanese sellers have it listed on eBay at prices ranging from £26.52 to an utterly ridiculous £108.01. The kit fits well and the scribed detail is generally good. However some areas are basic, notably the undercarriage. There is a PE set available from Extra Tech but I’ve never really liked PE and my eyesight is no longer up to assembling nine microscopic parts to make one undercarriage door for a small aircraft like the Embraer 170 so I contented myself with thinning the kit doors and adding a little detail. I did use the PE to improve the undercarriage bays and also to add pitots. Apologies for a bit of a rant but it’s beyond me why most PE makers can produce scale sized hinges for undercarriage doors but then give you pitots resembling part of the radar array from a WW2 Luftwaffe nightfighter. The Extra Tech set was no different and much fiddling and cursing was needed to get things looking reasonably presentable. Paint is Halfords Appliance White and Racking Grey with Tamiya and Revell metallics. I was going to use a set of Nazca decals which I’d bought at the same time as the kit but I discovered that some of the lettering was over-scale to the point that you couldn’t make an accurate model with it. Fortunately BOA have covered the same scheme so the tail decal is Nazca and everything else is BOA. Detail decals are from the kit sheet and windows are by Authentic Airliners. Thanks for looking and as always constructive criticism is welcome. Dave G
  13. I like to have models in various states of the build process so I can choose what to work on. Here is another Spitfire start. Although the fit is acceptable, Hasegawa does not fit as well as the Tamiya. Also, I had to repair a tiny chunk missing out of the trailing edge from the center part of the canopy. I have zero intentions of building it with the box cover markings.
  14. 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. IMGA0670 by neil Connor, on Flickr IMGA0673 by neil Connor, on Flickr Decals and belts for the Zero's IMGA0671 by neil Connor, on Flickr Resin ski's, Etch and decals for the Tony IMGA0674 by neil Connor, on Flickr Eduard etch for the Kate So the Tony first, the kit is from early 1990's I believe so fine engraved detail on the outside but cockpit detail is non-existent! Resin ski's and Rising Sun decals look good.

IMGA0684 by neil Connor, on Flickr 8 bits of etch and a piece of 0.8mm wire later, looks more like it.
  15. I have not seen many spitfires with nose art and have been fascinated by MT841 for a while for its excellent nose art and that too on a RIAF Spitfire! Using the book Spitfires in the Sun and the site bharat-rakshak.com as starting reference points, I found some excellent decals for MT841 from Exito Decals and started of on building the kit. According to the reference material cited earlier MT841 Spitfire was with No.2 Sqn RIAF from 20 Jan 46, and was written off on 29th Jan 1947, when P/O Pat Callaghan belly landed the aircraft at Kohat airfield. The aircraft engine had caught fire after an oil leak in circuit. The Hasegawa kit is a quick build with well fitting parts. It has a basic cockpit, good exterior detail and engraved panel lines. Some have discussed that the kit's outline is a tad off from the real airplane as with Hasegawa's 1/48 scale but frankly I could not tell for this or for that matter - the 1/48 I built earlier. I really enjoyed building this kit. The only mods made were seat belts made from masking tape. Paints are all Tamiya. I started with spraying Tamiya Titanium Silver as a primer. Next step was some salt weathering added to the left wing root before pre-shading with Tamiya nato Black. I then sprayed the standard RAF camo scheme in Medium Sea Grey, Dark Green and Dark Earth. The prop cone was a little challenging to paint and required creativity. Once dry, I scrapped off the salt and added some light chipping around heavy traffic areas (cockpit, cowl...etc) using a metallic silver color pencil. Decals were added and sealed with Tamiya clear gloss and then I applied a black panel line wash using Tamiya's line of washes. I sealed it all with Tamiya flat clear. I do hope you enjoy the pictures. Some were taken indoors - some outdoors but my photography skills leave a lot to be desired so apologies for that. Comments/ questions/suggestions are always very welcome as they help me get better! To start, a picture of the actual aircraft: The Decal sheet came with poster art which is excellent! And a few outdoor pictures in natural light Thank you for looking!
  16. Good Afternoon, Sometimes you pick an aircraft that you want to model because the markings are interesting, or because there is a interesting bit of history behind it, or you really like the aircraft itself. In this case, I chose this build because of the absolutely ridiculous weapons load that was applied to this aircraft for testing purposes. Normally the A-10 is not cleared to fly with drop tanks and any weapons, but the fine folks at Eglin Air Force Base did some testing in 2013 to clear the aircraft for just that. See the press release here: https://www.eglin.af.mil/News/Article/814477/40th-fts-expands-a-10-fuel-limitations-in-combat/ This picture is what inspired me to do the build: 130814-F-OC707-052 by J Hooper, on Flickr This particular aircraft, being a test bird, has some differences when compared to a normal A-10C, but they are not too significant. For this build I used the Hasegawa A-10C kit, not because it is the best in the scale, but more so because I happened to have one in the stash. Pros: Good shape, reasonable fit in some parts, extra sprue with C model specific parts (the only kit to do so in 1/72) Cons: Raised panel lines, oversimplified details, poor fit in some other parts. Before construction, I rescribed the entire kit, my first time ever doing so. Rather than go nuts and try to correct any misplaced panel lines, I simply copied those that were already on the kit. I wanted to do some detailing with the kit, but didn't want to go crazy and spend too much time on it.
  17. So this is yet another conversion of a Sikorsky SH-3H kit to depict the SH-3D "Old 66" recovery helicopter for Apollo 11. It's the first time I've posted to "Work In Progress". I suspect I'm going to be grateful for input from people with more experience of this aircraft. My starting point is Hasegawa's 1/48 kit: I've also got the necessary short sponsons from Belcher Bits, the Starfighter/Old 66 decal sheet, a set of Montex paint masks, and the Hasegawa 1/48 SH-3D instruction sheet, downloaded from Scalemates. On opening my kit box bought from eBay, I discover I've also got two sets of Quickboost seats (if anyone wants one, drop me a PM and I'll post it to you), and an Eduard photoetch cockpit set. I started by doing a bit of scratch building to produce the camera mount and Yagi antennae. I've been helped with the appearance of the camera mount by watching Todd Douglas Miller's excellent Apollo 11 documentary. The camera mount for Apollo 11 seems to have been a bit more complicated than is often depicted: The lower right image is from NASA / S-69-21723; the others are screen-grabs from Apollo 11. There is certainly something mounted outboard of the two video cameras, wrapped with yellow tape. I've interpreted it as being an SLR stills camera with a motor drive. Here's my best effort to sorta-kinda reproduce the appearances above: In the Apollo 11 images above, there also seems to be a weapons mount point just forward of the camera mount, bearing some sort of attachment I can't quite make out and which I can't find in my reference material. I'm going to need to scratch build this, too. It seems the same sort of fixing was probably present on the aft mount points on the port side too: What was happening on the forward mount points behind the sponsons is a mystery to me. I'll put together another stills camera to mount on the starboard side, but I've no evidence of what this actually looked like, beyond a tantalizing glimpse in about three frames of Apollo 11, as the helicopter drops out of sight on the elevator. The Yagi antennae were a bit more straightforward. Here they are with their attached cables: I used the "free" resin seats and photoetch detailing in putting together the cockpit. It's an SH-3H instrument layout, but it looks better than I could manage trying to detail by hand: The SH-3D instructions were very useful in finding out which lumps and bumps needed to be removed from the fuselage, since that kit used the same moulding as the SH-3H: I also shortened the horizontal stabilizer and filled the locating holes for its supporting strut: The kit comes with what seems to be a depiction of the dipping sonar retracted into its well, so I carved that out and blanked off the upper end of the empty well with styrene card: Finally, I used the Montex interior masks to paint up the inside of the canopy, and added the green panels with Tamiya clear green (which I found something of a nightmare to apply). Hopefully, some actual assembly photographs coming up soon.
  18. Hi guys, So this will be my next build hasegawa's 1/48 JU87-R2 which I believe is a extended range version of the B2 the only difference being two external fuel tanks. If that's not true then please correct me because I'm thinking of just doing a B2. The reason being because the 1994 decals don't look great and there's more options for B2 schemes. If anyone has some desert or winter schemes that are a bit different that they could share images of I would be most grateful so am open to suggestions. The kit looks ok I know there are some issues with the flap mass balancers or arms (one of the two) so am ready for that, and I will be showing it with the Aires resin engine and cockpit set which looks nice, there will no doubt be a bit of scratch and may even open it up a bit more but we'll see. It won't be a quick one I dare say. Thanks for looking. Phil
  19. Supercharger Intake for Bf109G-10/K in 1/32 scale from Hasegawa. Supercharger intake intended for Hasegawa’s Bf109K/G-10 and for our future G-6AS conversion and G-10 correction set for Revell sets.
  20. #24/2019 My father´s latest and last? contribution to his captured Bf109 theme this year. Had a Hasegawa Bf109 F/G fuselage lying around from an abandoned project. Then he had the idea to play Frakenstein and fusion it with a wing and undercarriage from Fujimi. (Had still two Fujimi kits in our stash that he won´t build) After some work the wing fit perfectly. Seatbelts from Eduard, Russian star decals from the sparesbox, translucent JG3 decal from an old Aeromaster sheet, brake lines with lead wire and EZ Line, the latter was used for the antenna wire too. MRP RLM74/75/76 for the base camo, AK Real Color AMT-7 Blue and MRP AMT-4 Green for the overpainted areas. Build thread here https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235060494-under-new-management148-messerschmitt-bf109g-2-soviet-airforce/ The model shows an aircraft of JG3 that was captured in the Stalingrad area by the Soviets. Sources differ, some say JG3 I. Gruppe, some II. Gruppe, either end of 1942 or early 1943.

  21. Hi there. Just finished another swedish jet a few days ago. It´s a conversion from Hasegawas J35F to a S35E using a lot of Maestro Models nice stuff. I used etched parts for the cockpit, a new nose and extra fuel tanks, a KB pod, the RWR pods under the wings and the complete tailcone. From Pavla came a new vacu formed canopy, from Pilot Replicas the pilot and from Hasegawa the ground crew member. The ladder is also an etches part from Maestro. Daniel
  22. Next one in my Royal Navy collection, the fabulous Sea Harrier! I'm already tempted to do a 1/48th one after this. It's a nice kit despite its age, and fits together really well, no filler needed at all. After being delivered to the FAA in 1979, XZ457 subsequently fought in the Falklands War, by then painted in all over dark grey. After conversion to an FA2, it crashed in 1995 after a forced landing following an engine explosion at Yeovilton, but thankfully the pilot ejected safely. The aircraft was subsequently rebuilt at Boscombe Down for static display.
  23. Another that I'd love to know the full pothential. Grumman X-29 Forward Swept Wing, finished like a USAF F-16. Kit acquired as an exchange for an unwanted Fujimi Skyhawk. Parts and candidate lo-vix decals. Here's one that I built in about 1989. There was a full size model X-29 at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, Washington DC, when I was fortunate enough to visit in 1994. . . which I thought was a real aircraft.
  24. Had a Hasegawa 109 F-fuselage laying around and my dad decided to play Frankenstein and build a full 109 using the Hasegawa parts together with a Fujimi wing from the sparesbox. Gonna do a JG3 G-2 that was captured by the Soviets in 1943 after an emergency landing.

  25. I thought I'd start another classic FAA jet while waiting for the Buccaneer to dry. I'll carry on with this once I finish the Bucc, but here's the usual box and decal shot for openers. Seems like a decent kit for its age, I'm no rivet counter so it'll do for me. I'll be making the 899 sqn option on the box art, in its early EDSG/white colours. Not with the Sea Eagles though, just drop tanks.
