Pappy Posted November 14, 2021 Share Posted November 14, 2021 (edited) G'day people, After ummimg and aaghing I decided I would join in this GB with the Hasegawa 1/48 kit. nobody else has been foolhardy enough to join in with this kit as although it once ruled the roost in terms of detail and accuracy, it also has a fearsome reputation for being a nightmare to build that makes the Airfix 1/48 Buccaneer kit seem like a doddle (actually I thought the Bucc was actually pretty easy to assemble FWIW) such that many a Has Kitty has languished in people's stashes. I am sure that plenty of people are probably trying to offload it now that Tamiya have provided an easier option. Since I have been amassing loads of AM for this kit over the years, this looks like a perfect excuse to build it. Firstly, the box and bits, I made a start today by preparing the forward fuselage halves for the replacement resin tub by removing the moulded locating ledges and removing the section of the cockpit access steps that protrude from m the inside of the left fuselage as this would foul the resin tub The final job for today was to start assembling the intake sub-assemblies by cleaning up the ejector pin marks from the forward intake sections and filling the seams on the rear duct sections. cheers, Pappy Edited July 8, 2022 by Pappy 8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
