Cool! Another kit that will spark off a debate over Hasegawa prices!

As long as it has ALL the pylons and a decent spares request form, I'll get ONE ;)

let me guess... twice as expensive as Revell's Tiffie, but no ordnance and only two decal options.

Nah, I really think Hasegawa is a bit too late.

why?????????????????????????

As for the Typhoon, I thought the revell one was a great kit, with loads of weapons at a very good price?

Paid less than a tenner for my Revell ones, won't be getting any Hasegawa's.

They'll have to go some to beat Revell's weapons set with free Typhoon!

well, maybe an additional pirate-sensor and some LGB. Don't see much else that Revell could have packed into this kit...

The right number of pylons ;)

...some intake trunking, finer surface detailing, a canopy opening arm you don't have to make yourself, parts that fit, some A2G weaponry that's actually been seen on a Typhoon, the right colour stencils...there's lot's of room for improvement...:)

You'll probably see a full A2A fit in the Hasegawa kit, they usually include weapons if the subjects standard load isn't found in their weapons sets (SU-33, F/A-18E/F).

And it'll probably be pretty pricey from UK retailers...but then again the Revell kit is cheap for a reason. You pays your money and makes your choice :)

Since AIM-120, AIM-9 and AIM-132 are quite "standart", they will therefore not been included in this kit. Maybe the Taurus/Scalp and Meteor, but for the LGB, please use the Hasegawa weapon kit set number...

Maybe they are a bit more cooperative with "exotic" aircrafts, but my experience is rather bad with hasegawa. In the F-14-kit, there were not even the Phoenix, nothing but tanks and the recce-pod! Same for the Phantom FGR.2 (Revell-geissue). A gun pod, a recce pod, and that's it.

The F-14 is an older kit release. Newer 1/72 Hasegawa kits seem to be moving away from that model. F-16 CJs usually include HARMs and I think JDAMs, Su-33 and the EA-18G both came with a pretty good loadout.

I suspect the Typhoon will include AIM-120 and AIM-9 and some more representative weapons. The F/A-18 kits have these missiles included as Weapon set III's missiles are not very good, and they don't have a Aim-9X.

Brimstones eh? I know Typhoon isn't yet cleared for them, but I'm glad Hasegawa have chosen to include them :)

I'd have preferred a 1/48th JAS37 Viggen... whistle.gif

You know there's a new Viggen coming from Tarangus early 2013, right? If not, just check out www.tarangus.se..
