  1. This was a pretty tough build for a Hasegawa kit. I opted to build it with the wing down and droops & ailerons up since the whopping majority of photos of parked F-8s show it in that configuration, but it wasn't easy getting rid of all the gaps that presented. Then there was the infamous problem of posing the canopy open. It's clear Hasegawa intended for the wing to be up and the canopy to be down, but I just had to be contrary. To make matter worse, the kit decals shattered when they hit the water. I managed to salvage them by spraying the sheet with Future, but that made them tend to curl up when they came off the backing sheet. In the end I used some of them, but I supplemented heavily from aftermarket AeroMaster (thanks Jeem!) and Furball decals. I also added an Aires resin cockpit & the Wolfpack resin speed brake (which is most excellent, BTW). An Air Master brass pitot tube rounds out the aftermarket stuff.

  2. I was planning to use the kit-supplied decals with my Hasegawa F-8J, but they shattered like glass when they hit the water. I ordered a replacement sheet from Hobbico nearly 3 months ago, but I've received nothing and I really don't expect to given their financial situation. I'm looking for one of the following sheets so I can finish my model (listed in order of preference): Aeromaster Colourful Crusaders III 48-445 Hasegawa decals from kit HSGS0226 Aeromaster Colourful Crusaders I 48-403 Aeromaster Colourful Crusaders IV 48-450
  3. This week we are taking a look at a more recent reboxing of Hasegawa's 1/48th scale F-8E kit with markings for the character Shin Kazama from the series Area 88.
