  1. As I said, it was some time ago. To be more precise, it was in the 90s. 😉 So, good they fixed that. Markus
  2. It has been a few years since I built a Hasegawa F-16. They are nice kits shapewise, but Tamiya beats them in every department, be it details, ease of assembly and accuracy for the various blocks. Also, Tamiya has a full intake and compressor face, contrary to Hasegawa. IIRC the "Misawa"-boxing from Hasegawa doesn't inlcude a "big mouth" intake, which is present on block 50 aircrafts. You can install the landing gears later in the build, if you don't glue J13 and F21 until the build is finished. Markus
  3. So this raises the question: should I continue with the Hobby Boss kit, for which I bought a ton of aftermarket from Phase Hangar Resin, or should I get the new Academy kit? What would be your opinion? Markus
  4. Hi! Thanks! I used Zero Paints 2 Pack Gloss Clearcoat Diamond Finish. Cheers, Markus
  5. Thanks for all the input. Cheers, Markus
  6. Thanks a lot. I will go with a flat finish. Cheers, Markus
  7. Hi, i am currently building the F-4B from Tamiya. I plan to use the kit markings from VF-51 in 1972. The question I have is regarding the paint scheme. Was this aircraft painted in a gloss or flat finish? Thanks, Markus
  8. Hi! I am looking for a GPU-5/A in 1/48, for example of the Hasegawa Aircraft Weapon Set C. If anyone has this set and doesn't need the pod, I will gladly take it (decals are not needed). I live in Austria, so it would be preferably from someone in Europe to keep shipping costs low 😉 Kind regards, Markus
  9. Intersting. Just as I started the Hobby Boss kit with a lot of Phase Hangar Resin upgrades. Well, I will continue anyway. 😉 Cheers, Markus
  10. Yes, it was a F-15B, but it served as Strike Eagle demonstrator (71-291). And all pictures show it with ESCAPAC seats. As I propably will close the canopy, the different cockpit configuration will hardly be visible. Seems the True Details seats are out of production. Cheers, Markus
  11. Looks fantastic! Excellent paintwork and decaling. Cheers, Markus
  12. Hi! I am planning to build the famous F-15E demonstrator in the Euro paint scheme. I intend to use the Hasegawa kit in 1/48, since this is the closest starting point. I am aware of most modifications needed, like the closed gun port, the short speed-brake and so on. I am also aware that the aircraft in question was fitted with ESCAPAC ejection seats. Therefore my question: Can anybody recommend aftermarket ESCAPAC seats, which fit the Hasegawa kit? Cheers, Markus
