My 1/72 Hasegawa Lightning F.6


Recommended Posts

A classic Hasegawa kit, with an Airwaves cockpit set and Pavla ejection seat. I did forget to add the pull rings to the seat, despite painting them up and having them ready to attach. I used Xtradecals for it and have never worked with decals so thin and prone to folding. I had to order replacements for the nose markings as the first set just pulled away and flaked off. I used Microset and Microsol and no issue with any of the other decals from the sheet. These are my favorite makings for the Lightning, no doubt influenced by that dynamic art on the classic Hasegawa box.

Very nicely done.:like:

Well! doesn't this one bring back memories. I think I made it in the 70s or 80s and I still have the decal sheet in the spares box!
