  1. Hi all! Here is my latest completed project, the Hasegawa F-14A Tomcat in NSAWC "Flanker" adversary scheme, NAS Fallon 1999. As you know, this is the notorious Hasegawa Tomcat. This is my second one, and I learned quite a bit from my first try. I deviated from the directions in three key places: 1. Intake Assembly 2. Fuselage Join 3. Beaver Tail Attachment Basically what I did was to install the intake trunking BEFORE putting the inner ducting in. This allowed me to get a fantastic join of the intake trunking, which gave me fits last time. For the fuselage join, I cut out the rear bulkhead of the forward fuselage, and attached the completed forward fuselage to only the upper portion of the rear fusleage pancake. Also gave me a much better fit than last time. Third, attach the upper portion of the beaver tail to the upper portion of the fuselage pancake, and attach the lower beaver tail to the lower fuselage pancake. This was a HUGE improvement from the last time. The fit was almost perfect doing it this way. I used quite a mix of paints on this. Both grays are Gunze Aqueous, the light blue and white are Mr Paint, and the dark blue is Model Master. I am a bit disappointed as I used too light of a light blue, but I think it still looks pretty cool. Just a bit too light. :-) Decals are Fightertown Decals, and they are really fantastic. The fact that this aircraft is devoid of almost all stencils was a nice plus. LOL Other aftermarket additions are the Verlinden Cockpit Set, Steel Beach Naca Vent, and Master Pitot, and the Hasegawa Weapons Sets C and D for the probe and sidewinder. Anyway, I hope you like!

  2. So I think it is time to introduce what I want to build for that GB. It will be the F-104G from Marineflieger but in the colorful livery of the "Viking" air demo team from the middle of the 80ies. When I was watching all the flying displays at open day from JG 74 in Neuburg/Donau in autumn 1986 and also admiring the fast show of the Vikings, I did not know that I was watching HISTORY as it was the last public perfomance of that demo team! I was just in the last year of high school and therefore a quite young man and already left the teenage modelling time behind. Not knowing that I will restart 20 years later. I have the Hasegawa boxing of the Finkings Starfighter, DACO decal set and DACO upgrade set, all in 1/48. In addition a resin driver from PJ Productions.

  5. A Hornets Nest

    Greetings, I built a Hasegawa Hornet several years ago and remember it being a fun build that went together with few problems. I had a Hobbyboss A model, another Hasegawa D model and the new Kinetic C model in the stash so I decided to get them all done. I had the Afterburner decals for VFA-87 War Party that I used on the 1st Hasegawa and there were plenty left over so I used them on the Hobbyboss Kit to build an A+. I am not up to date on my Hornet specifics so I relied on the Hobbyboss instructions for the build. Obviously that was a mistake. There were some antennas that got put on the kit that I later found out don't belong on an A+ model. I'm sure you Hornet fans will pick those out. Other than that the kit goes together easy enough and has nice surface detail that some might find a little exaggerated. The one thing that stands out to me and it may be builder error is the main landing gear wheels stand too wide when compared to the other kits. The tires almost touch the inboard wing tanks. I did a panel line wash with diluted oil paint, and over painted some areas to give the impression of touch up painting that goes on during a long cruise. Models Master enamels were used for the painting. The Hasegawa D kit got a little more attention to detail. I got the Wolfpack update kit to supplement the kit. I also installed seamless intakes from Sierra Hotel Models. All those parts were excellent. The markings were from MAW Decals, MAW Hornets Part II and they were excellent too. I tried a new product for me that I like on this kit. Tamiya Panel Line Accent. I put this on over a lacquer gloss coat. It flows nicely and wipes of cleanly with turpenoid. Same touch up painting and Model Master paints like the Hobbyboss kit. The Kinetic kit was built out of the box with the kit decals. Again VFA-87. I like the surface detail of the Hasegawa and Hobbyboss kits more than the Kinetic but the Kinetic kit does have more build options for wing folds, if you like to do that. The wing trailing flaps also seem to be a bit more secure when assembled. The kit decals are from FighterTown decals and they were excellent. I kept this one pretty clean since is the CAG plane. Just the panel accents. Same Model Master paints. Enough words here are some pictures.

  7. Hello all, I have the Aires cockpit and the burner cans for the 1/48 Hasegawa F-18 kit. Does anybody of you have any experience, on how it fits the Kinetic kit? If these do not fit, I want to sell the with the Hasegawa kit. Thanks. Thomas
  8. Hi friends This is the ultimate Viper FACH (Fuerza Aerea de Chile), scale 1/EGG, modified from the Hasegawa kit. The modifications were: vacuform canopy, duplicate pilot in resin, birdslicers, spine, extended nozzle, fuel tanks and armaments transformed to scale 1/EGG: My son Nicolás helped with Photoshop to make the in flight potos. Thanks Nicolás!! Hope you like it NECSAC In Flight Landed Superdetailing the cockpit The Box Art
  9. Hi everyone! Back again to share my latest completed project, the 1/48 Hasegawa A-4M Skyhawk in Lo-Viz VMA-131 Diamondbacks markings from 1993. had the bright idea to add the Aires cockpit... what a mistake that was! I had only a couple of months ago used my first Aires pit (on a Tamiya F-16C Aggressor), and while it did take some work to fit, was not too much of a hassle. This one was nothing but a hassle. It took me more than an entire week to just get it to sorta fit in there. I had to hack up the plastic sides, the nose gear well, and the pit itself to shoehorn it in. Considering it usually take me just over three weeks to build an entire kit, a week fitting a cockpit alone is a huge time sink for me. So if you are considering the Aires cockpit for the Hasegawa A-4, DON'T. You have been warned! LOL I will not buy another Aires pit, however I will still use the ones I currently already have. The issue with the cockpit really took the wind out of my sails, and I must admit I rushed the construction a bit. So the seams and steps are not all perfectly attended to. All pics I have seen of this exact bird show it to be rather dirty and worn, so I tired to replicate that. I am happy with how the weathering turned out, despite the fact it is rather heavy.

  10. Taking a look at a classic, with Hasegawa's 1/48th scale RF-4E Phantom kit in Hellenic markings.
  11. Hello all, These are my hornets I've been slowly working on lately. Im new to the scene and would appreciate any feedback or tips on how I can improve as an aircraft modeller. let me know what you think. thanks.
  12. Need some help. I've got a couple 1/72 A-37's I'm starting and wondering if any kind soul would happen to have the decals for the 19th TASS, 51st TFW out of Osan Korea from either the Academy "Black Eagles" kit #1672 or the Hasegawa kit #00142 they would be willing to sell? Thanks for any help.
  13. Happy Easter and good afternoon, I'm taking a look at my 1/72 scale Hasegawa F-20, and the external fuel tanks included in the kit, both underwing and centerline do not look right shapewise or size. The centerline tank looks much too long and skinny, and while the underwing tanks look better, they do not have the right upturned tail section as I see on those F-20 pictures that I have found. Can anybody provide me with accurate measurements for those large tanks? The seem to be the same tanks used by both the F-20 and the F-5E. Barring that, those tanks included in the AFV Club and Freedom Model kits look pretty good based on what I've seen on pictures online. If anybody has one of those handy and would be willing to give me the measurements on those, I'll convert and it will be close enough in 1/72. Cheers and thanks for looking, Hoops
  14. Hasegawa TBF Avenger Egg Plane Review/Preview

    Late getting this posted due to a couple of hectic work days back to back, but this week we have an older boxing of Hasegawa's TBF Avenger egg plane.
  15. Recce phantom nose

    I know this is a rookie level question, but here I go I! I have a hasegawa RF-4e that comes with these camera nose bits. I'm having trouble identifying if these count as the round or angled nose. I'm assuming round, but can somebody please confirm? Also, can I backdate this version nose to an RF-4C?
  16. Hello all, My fourth build for 2017 is Hasgawa's F-16A in 1:48 scale. The model represents an F-16A serving with the Royal Netherlands Airforce, No. 311 Squadron, around 1985. The model is of an aircraft attending a bombing range exercise, hence the captive AIM-9 missiles, and live cluster munitions. The graffiti on the bombs is inspired by this photo taken at exercises in Skrydstrup, Denmark in 1986. The kit consists mostly of Hasegawa parts, but the drop tanks and ejection seat were cannibalized from a failed Tamiya F-16. The BL755 cluster bombs are from a Kittyhawk Jaguar, The AIM-9P is from Academy's phantom, and the ALQ pod (not really visible in these photos) is from Hasegawa's RF-4E. Paint is Tamiya, for the most part. The exhaust is Model Master Metalizer Stainless Steel. Decals are from the box, and had held up surprisingly well considering their age and pedigree. The walkways were hand painted.
  17. This is the Hasegawa 1/48 F-14A+ kit number SP8. Started this kit back in November and it gave me quite a bit of trouble. It was one of the older kits in my collection, purchased sometime in the early 90's. After many years of being stored in garages some of the plastic got brittle. One sprue in particular would crumble upon snipping parts off. This happened to be the sprue with the landing gear parts on it. I was forever having to repair mlg struts and the like. Anyway the good news it is done. I actually finished it in January, just getting around to taking some pictures. The kit decals were for VF-74 but I used the 2 Bobs version from when they were getting ready to disestablish and were acting as adversary unit for east coast fighters. Aside from the decals I also used a WANDD pitot tube, a set of DEF.MODEL resin wheels and some sidewinders from the leftovers box for a catm sidewinder and an ACMI pod. 2 Bobs decals dressed them up too! The kit came with vinyl tires and they crumbled upon putting them onto the wheels. I used MM paints and liquefied oil paints for panel line highlighting. Hope you like the pictures.
  18. Hi all! I am back to share my latest completed project, the 1/48 Hasegawa F-4G Wild Weasel from the original P4 boxing in 1984. I bought this kit from this site for very cheap, but it was already started though... the forward fuselage was brush painted and the cockpit had been partially painted. the intakes had been glued, then ripped apart apparently... so I had a little extra work to do when I got started. This build was OOB except for the decals. Total build time was about 3.5 weeks. The Decals are Speed Hunter Graphics "SEAD SPECIALISTS" part one, which are printed by Cartograf and are excellent... with one small exception. There is an insert sheet that I do not believe is printed by Cartograf that included the "PN" and the upper fuselage "black lines" (really not sure what to call them). They were a bit trickier to work with than the rest, and the backing color is different. But overall this is a fantastic sheet. It is the first time using Speed Hunter decals and I look forward to doing so again. Here is what I used on this build: Kit: 1/48 Hasegawa F-4G Wild Weasel P4 Decals: Speed Hunter Graphics "SEAD SPECIALISTS" F-4G Wild Weasel Phantoms, Part I Aftermarket: None Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya White Liquid Primer (for pre-shade stippling), Gunze Aqueous H340 Medium Green FS 34102 , H320 Gunship Green FS 34092, and Insignia Red H327 FS 11136 , Tamiya XF-24 Gray, Smoke, and Rubber Black, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, Jet Exhaust, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. MIG Deep Brown for panel washes. On to the pics! I hope you enjoy!

  20. Hello My friends, Here is my Hasegawa's F-14D Tomcat with markings for VF-2. Its for an article about weathering on the Naval Jets. Hope you enjoy.
  21. In an interesting twist of fate, as I did not deliberately plan to have this particular video come out on inauguration day it just happened to be the next video in live to be released, we will be looking at a very patriotic Hasegawa A-7D in marking to celebrate the United States Bicentennial in 1/48th scale.
  22. F-14 Tomcat wheels

    I need your help. I remember a thread about the three different styles of Tomcat main wheels but I cannot locate it despite having searched through all F-14 threads since last fall. Last weekend I tried modifying a set of Tamiya main wheels with half of the white metal hubs from a Hasegawa F-14, but now I have my doubts as to whether or not I used the correct wheel hubs. Can someone help me out here? Thanks in advance, Jens
  23. Onami and his Zero

    Fantastic work on this somewhat outdated kit. Love the skin-stressing treatment.
  24. Dad bought me this kit way back in high school, so thought I should break it out. While the forum was down, I started. I haven't decided upon colour schemes yet. The interiors are a bit basic, but otherwise no real problems have been encountered so far. So that's where I am at the moment. More to follow.

    Hi all, Just finished this as my #13 in 2016. Hasegawa kit in 1/48 with FCM decal, built OOB with some scratchbuild parts. Hope you all like it.
