Well that will kill the inflated prices on eBay for a while at least, just need Xtradecal or somebody to knock out some nice RN decals to go with it.

Now then the 1/72 MIG-25PD looks interesting - 98 parts in the kit according to the Hasegawa web site!

Might this be a new tool??????????? as their old kit has around 53 parts? Or have I lost something in the translation...or is it a re-pop of someone else's kit?

I know that Hasegawa have reboxed some of ICM's stuff, so the Mig-25 could be theirs?

Hmm, the provenance of that MiG-25 would be interesting ... not least as I am currently battling with a Condor P!!

The Hasegawa website confirms the plastic is of ICM origin, the decals and packaging will be all Hasegawa 😉

This translates as: "A representation of 'Red 72' of the Russian Air Force, with its vertical tail rudder divided into the three colours of the Russian flag. Kit parts are from the company ICM."

Can anybody still afford Hasegawa kits in the UK anymore or justify the inflated prices that they command?

Cheers

Someone said to me recently that Airfix are producing a 1/48 F-4 in the not too distant future, it was going to come out before a 1/48 Hunter but things have been swapped around and the Hunter will come 1st - now there's something to make most of us dribble !!

Certainly food for thought Tony! I haven't bought any new Hasegawa kits in years. Priced themselves right out of my market. Second hand prices are usually a lot more reasonable. However, been a long time since they produced anything I really wanted so I guess it does not matter anyway. There will always be those who will attempt to justify the OTT prices but, are the UK prices the fault of the manufacturer or the importer? Certainly, you can save a fortune by ordering from abroad. Personal choice will dictate if you think the kits are worth the money. I do wonder though that if Hasegawa were (for example) to produce a 1/72 Spey Phantom kit priced at £50+ and, a 1/72 Vulcan B-2 at £100+ would all modellers craving such beasts swallow their pride and fork out the readies despite their whinges about pricing? I personally wouldn't but, that's just me.

I guess they can, otherwise the price would have to drop to sell them. I've only bought one Hasegawa kit's in the last few years at full price, the rest when they were on sale, but I did stock up several years back when they were still a sensible price.

If Hasegawa came out with a new tooled kit, that was a type I was really after and there wasn't any good competition out there (1/48th Hornet, MS.406, Spitfire Mk.XIV & Mk.XI, Beaufort, Yak-9, Welkin, P-47N , P-40F/L for example) then I would pay the price, as it's still cheap compared to other forms of entertainment (especially the speed I build at!) and people are willing to high prices for resin kit (which of course have high manufacturing prices) when there is no descent competition.

Just seen the reissue of Hasegawa 1/72 X-29 is retailing at £44.99! At first I thought it must be two kits in the box, but it's not. The reissue of their 1/48th Draken is only £42.99, so what makes the X-29, which is quite a basic kit worth so much?
