Hasegawa - old kits in new boxes thread

Recommended Posts

When did Hasegawa do a LaGG3? This is either a brand new kit of someone else's tooling.

Scale?

What is the point of this thread? Their P-51b/c is pretty good unlike their old tool d version which was also superseded.

Rather a snide title. All manufacturers push out old kits in new boxes. And why not? In principle, at least, though there are some unworthy kits.

Hasegawa do dozen reboxes every month. So much for separate threads.

If I'm not mistaken, the subject's title should read 'thread' instead of 'threat'.

'Not quite Finish(ed) Air Force', surely?

PS - And being in nit-pick mode - if it's a LaGG (Lavochkin, Goorbunov & Goodkov), then it isn't, strictly speaking a 'Lavochkin'

Most of Hasegawa's current line-up of kits have their origins in the 1990's, 1980's and even 1970's... Just new sprues, slight tooling mods and maybe some resin, white metal and PE to keep them up-to-date.

Sometimes in the plethora of re-releases, Mr Hasegawa doesn't even bother with updates and just sticks new decals in with a really outdated kit... The tools really do get worked for all their worth.

Is this 1/72? Hasegawa never released any P-51B/C, let alone one With fin fillet?

My answer was in response to Graham, and only referred to the LaGG-3.

Ah, somewhat confusing, I thought you meant both.
