  1. Hello all, Missed this group build so a later entry from me; Hasegawa's 1/48 EA-18G Growler in the markings of VAQ-132 'Scorpions' during Operation 'Odyssey Dawn' over Libya in 2011. Kit: Aftermarket: I'll be using a Wolfpack Designs cockpit set and Steel Beach intake covers. Decals and paint scheme: The jet back in 2011 - EA-18G Been in the stash for a few years so will be good to get it built and displayed alongside the several F/A-18E/Fs I've built over the last 2 years. Dave
  2. Hi, With the Seafang stuck on a missing part (my fault) and the A-26B Invader stuck on a missing part (less my fault - as I got it off eBay) - I'm starting another build. The box I happened to pull out of the stash comes from the 'cheaper' side of it - kits I got for lower prices that I plan to use as part of my training and getting more skilled process. It's a 1/48 Typhoon - another WWII favorite with a very distinct look. As a Hasegawa - I expect good fit and ease of build - I just hope the decals are still good to go. Ran
  3. Finished towards the end of 2018, this was a kit that I'd had in my stash for close to 10 years. Had held off on building it telling myself "one day, when I get better at this hobby and won't make a mess of it". Finally got tired of waiting and just bit the bullet. As I recall, the build was relatively trouble-free and I really enjoyed seeing it come together. I built the Austrian Air Force scheme because it was the only one available from the box, I did not manage to source alternative decals in time. Since then I've managed to get my hands on the more recent boxing by Hasegawa, this time with Swedish markings - can't wait to build and paint that one! This is a completely OOB build, weathering was kept subtle as I read somewhere that the Austrians kept their jets pretty clean. As always, thanks for looking
  4. Dear fellow Britmodeller, here's my 1/72 Hasegawa Ju-188E in markings of KG 66, in 1945. Built with the addition of Eduard photo etch and Kora resin wheels. Photographs by Wolfgang Rabel. Thank you for your interest, best greetings from Vienna. Roman
  5. Hello all, Here is my recently completed 1/48 Hasegawa EA-18G 'Growler' in the markings of VAQ-132 'Scorpions' during operation 'Odyssey Dawn' over Libya in 2011. The build thread as part of 'The Specialists' Group Build is here Extras used included a Wolfpack Designs cockpit set, Steel Beach FOD covers, Eduard canopy mirrors, AGM-88s HARMs from a Tamiya F-16 and AIM-120 AMRAAM missiles from an Academy F-15. The model was painted using Mr Paint Lacquers and sealed with Mr Paint's varnish. Fantastic stuff. Weathering added using home made washes in random areas as per images of Super Hornets/Growlers when deployed. Thanks for looking. Dave
  6. Started over the long weekend - the Eduard rebox or the Hasegawa Typhoon 1B with lots of etch Work commences with replacing most of the plastic cockpit with Etch :-) Peter
  7. My dad´s on an Emil trip, started the third now, gonna be Romanian but don´t know which scheme yet. DSC_0005 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0006 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr DSC_0007 by Reinhard Spreitzhofer, auf Flickr
  8. Sto facendo, eh? The Hasegawa F-104S. I have no experience with Hasegawa F-104 kits, and im not sure what to expect. But it's a Lockheed design and it sure is pretty.
  9. I wanted to join but time is short, and I'm still manfully working my way through a pair of challenging TT builds in the trainers QGB, a Pavla Martinet and a fairly elderly Special Hobby Vengeance. We're also away for 10 days for a family wedding so my bench time is limited in the coming weeks. So if permissible this Fleet Air Arm sub hunter and killer from Hasegawa should be a relatively straightforward and trouble free build compared to my recent builds. And is all in one colour. Five nicely moulded grey sprues, not extensively detailed but not at all bad. And one small mall sprue with the radar on it. I've so got a masking set in the stash from Eduard. All the glazing on a single, quite large sprue. And a white metal arrestor hook. Good idea as shouldn't break when handled. Typical Hasegawa instructions, simple breakdown of parts, logical build sequence and no obvious pitfalls. Hopefully the fit will be exemplary. with options for one Suez aircraft from HMS Bulwark. The transfers have yellowed so they'll have to go on the front window sill for a few weeks. If they don't bleach out the actual markings not the Musketeer stripes are pretty straightforward and I should be able to sort something out Now to get some paint on.
  10. 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.
  11. Hi All, This is the second in my "Promise Made, promises fulfilled" project. I had this model over 30 years ago when it was first released. When I saw that Hasegawa had re-released it, I knew that I just had to get it. My memories of the first time was that it was a rather good model, with crisply moulded parts, and reasonably easy to build. My biggest mistake was to use automotive cellulose paints to paint it. The end result looked very good for about 6 months... Then it started to crack, and look rather shoddy. I removed the body from the floor pan, stripped the cellulose paint, can't remember with what, re-primed and sprayed it with enamels. However, that cellulose had attacked the plastic rather badly, even though I had primed it first. I could never get a good finish on it after that. Still, paints have moved on. I tend to use Zero paints these days and with care, they are much kinder to polystyrene. So, here we are so far: The obligatory box top. This kit comes with a finely detailed engine. Here are the first stages of the build. That's just eight parts to get to this stage, The fit is superb. I painted the block and cylinder heads with Tamiya XF-16, and the cam-covers with my own satin black concoction (One part Tamiya X-1, Two parts Tamiya XF-1 + three parts Mr Color levelling thinner). This seems to make a satin black that is easy to paint and with a finish not as glossy as X-18. I mix up about 25 mL and store in a glass bottle. This gives me enough to spray, if I need to, and it will brush paint well as well. One thig that I though looked a bit naff about the kit was the front disc brakes. For some reason, Hasegawa had moulded them on the 'chrome' tree. Some parts look right in high chrome, like the bumpers, and headlamps/tail lamps. But the front discs and callipers? I think not. This is what they looked like: A touch garish, I think. So out came the tub of caustic soda solution I keep in the garage, and I popped the offending items in it for about 50 minutes, and the result was: Completely stripped. They do seem to be coated in some kind of high-gloss varnish which the caustic soda won't touch, but the removal of the "chrome" seems to reveal more of the moulded detail. So, a quick priming with my 'grey primer' concoction followed by the right kind of colours, will make them more realistic, I think... That was where I stopped taking pictures, as I was making such good progress on the model. Anyway, this where I have got by early this morning... The sharper-eyed of you may have noticed that one of the air filter chambers is not yet fitted. That's because I forgot to cut it from the sprue and fix it on. For small parts, I tend to prime and paint them on the sprue then tidy them up on removal before attaching them to the assembly. This is nearly done. I'll show the images soon. Thanks for looking. Cheers, Alan.
  12. Here's my just finished 1/48 Hasegawa A-4N finished as N432FS, used by BAE Systems Flight Systems on a target towing contract for the Luftwaffe. Build thread is here. The kit is the A-4KU boxing, the extended tailpipe is from Quickboost, and I also used a Quickboost seat and an Eduard zoom set in the cockpit. Decals are from Two Bobs. Nobody seems to produce the RM30 target towing equipment so I scratch built mine. I found some of the manufacturer's promotional material online, which helpfully included a scale drawing, although I had to estimate the dimensions of the target. The body of the RM30 started life as a drop tank from an Eduard 1/48 MiG-21, and the front end is part of a JT3D engine from a Minicraft 1/144 DC-8. The target started out as one of the missiles in the Eduard MiG-21 and the side pylon was one of the MiG-21's pylons. Never tried scratch building like this before, really enjoyed it - I'll be doing it again. thanks for looking Julian
  13. Just a place holder, details to follow soon. And here they are Only have a Hawk to finish in the Trainers GB, then a Prowler and Growler in the Specialist GB. But probably won’t let that me stop me starting it.
  14. Hello modellers. My last model is done. Modest model and some hard work in the fittings parts. An old traditional Hasegawa 1/72 model. I used Eduard photo etch interior and masks. Tamiya acrilic mixes. I choose JE+HK 2/KG.6 version, found in Melsbroek, Belgium1944. I hope you enjoy it. Cheers!
  15. Hi! Concerning the Hasegawa F11F-1 Tiger what can be done with the area behind the seat in the cockpit? It's rather empty under the canopy... Cheers / André
  16. Hi Guys, I just finished my Hasegawa 1/48 Fw190 A4, with the markings belonging to Hannes Trautloft, Kommodore JG54, Russia, at the beginning of 1943. It was built in parallel with an old-tooled Eduard Fw190A5, which is still in progress at this time. Anyway, I'm happy that I finished one of them and I hope you will like it. The entire build log is here, if you are interested to see it. Thanks for looking and cheers,
  17. My second build in this GB will be a Skyhawk. What's a Skyhawk doing in the trainers group build I hear you ask? Well it qualifies if it's a target tug! This will be an ex-Israeli A-4N now operated by BAE Systems Flight Systems at Wittmund on a target towing contract for the Luftwaffe. I bought a Two Bobs sheet for these Skyhawks in 1/48 ages ago and have been looking out for a suitable kit ever since. The 1/48 Hasegawa A-4N popped up online from time to time but always at silly prices. Then last week I found the Brazilian A-4KU boxing - which contains identical plastic, except it doesn't have the extended tailpipe of the A-4N - at a reasonable price and snapped it up. Itching to build it, I looked at my modelling plans which this year are based on the group build schedule. The only one it might have fit in was the year I was born - there was a chance these airframes were built in 1973 - but no luck, I'm a year out! Then it dawned on me - they're target tugs, so they fit the trainers GB! I've ordered some Eduard PE for the interior and to dress up the ejection seat, and a Quickboost tailpipe to convert it to the A-4N, so this is just a placeholder for now. But once all that stuff turns up I'll get cracking.
  18. The Hasegawa kit with SuperScale decals. Nickname: Rat Poison, 553rd Bomb Squadron, 386th Bomb Group, US Army Air Force, WWII, European Theater.
  19. Hasegawa's Bf 109G-2 with decals from Eduard and Aeromaster.
  20. Blurred props for the “in-flight” look.
  21. 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. CJP
  22. This is my Lockheed AP-2H Neptune using the Hasegawa P2V-7 kit and the Blackbird conversion set and decals. The AP-2H's were 4 P-2H (P2V-7) Neptunes converted to a Gunship configuration and used in Viet Nam. They were equipped with a Forward Looking IR (FLIR)sensor and Low Light TV (LLTV) in a pod in the nose, replacement radar, tail turret, fuselage mounted grenade launchers, downwards firing wing mounted miniguns and Side Looking Airborne Radar (SLAR). Bombs and napalm could also be carried on under wing pylons. In addition both the piston and jet engines where equipped with sound dampeners. They were then painted with a 3 color gray camouflage. While there is at least one of these on display much of the special equipment such as the SLAR, sound dampers and armament was removed when they were when they were withdrawn from Viet Nam so, good photographic documentation is almost none existent. The Hasegawa kit is old and shows its age with raised panel lines, flash, and a bare cockpit but, it went together well. I used a combination of the Pavla resin interior overlayed with the Eduard etched brass that I think came out well. One comment is that the Pavla set includes 2 nicely cast seats for the pilot and copilot but, it does not have one for the observer in the nose. So I had to use the kit one spruced up with the Eduard seat belts. The Blackbird resin and decals were excellent, but both instructions were very lacking. The sound dampers were included but there were no instructions on mounting or coloring, and the some total of the decal instruction was a small left side profile. I assume this is because of the above mentioned lack of photos, but some commentary would have been helpful. Also the decals are missing the prop warning stripe and the jet intake warning chevron. I am guessing this is because there was no room on the sheet for them. Both of these are different then the normal red stripes and chevron that are solid red lines. These should be thin parallel lines with a space between them. I cheated and used a solid line for the prop warning, but punted on the jet intake warning. So on to the pictures. So I made some mods; Uncovered the cheek windows, repainted the SLAR and jet engine sound dampers and added some Mk 82 bombs I still have 2 more Neptunes that I plan on building: an OOB P2V-7 and a P2V-5 with the Blackbird conversion, but these will have to wait since next up is the Mach 2 (arrg) Ryan X-13 Verijet. Enjoy
  23. Joining you with this Hasegawa T-33 Shooting Star kit. Costing me £2.50 from Kit Rescue at IPMS Avon model show in 2014. The kit has decals for the Thunderbirds demonstration team - not going that way. This Heller model from 1995 is the reason why not. Edited 19 April 2019, now has pilots. Today Hepster gave me two very tempting decal sheets. Xtradecal X72-120 and X72-121 which are far more interesting. I'm very torn, between the option with hi-vis red panels, And the two-tone grey option.
  24. All this buzz nowadays with magnificent Tempests, amazing 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 at least 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 family shoot 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 Egypt 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!
  25. Friends, Here is the Hasegawa Macchi Mc.202 Folgore. I cannot remember exactly when I built this kit, but it`s been more than a few years ago. The highlights of this kit are as follows.............. 1. Mike Grant Decals for the iconic “spinach / smoke rings” found on the Folgore. 2. Tamiya painted tape for the seat belts. 3. Painted white fuselage band and tail cross insignia 4. Polly Scale paint : Italian Hazel Tan and Italian Lower surface gray ( WWII ) 5. Used kit supplied squadron insignia and national markings on the wings. 6. Weathered with chalk pastels. Chipping with silver paint 7. Pencils used to highlight panel lines and movable surfaces. I enjoyed putting this kit together. I had no issues at all and it was simple with all of the parts fitting together nicely. The “Rings” from Mike Grant Decals made this possible as I would still be carrying the migraine headache from trying to accurately replicate them in 72nd scale. I would recommend this kit for all ages and skill levels. I hope you enjoy the results. Thank you in advance!!!!!! Respectfully submitted, Mike
