  1. Hello! This is another one I built. The F-4B Phantom from Hasegawa in 1:72 scale. I used the zoom photo etched set from Eduard for the cockpit plus some scratch building for the side consoles and the back of the front seat. The ejection seats are from Quickboost and are those for The F-8 Crusader. I think early Phantoms had these seats instead the Martin Baker MK-7 they had later. The exhausts are resin items from Aires. The decals are from PrintScale which are very delicate and need fast and determined application because they can fold easily. I used the decals for the VF-21 “Freelancers” 102, which along with the 101 did the first Mig kills of the Vietnam War on the 17th of June 1965. The fire engine and the figures are from the old Fujimi kit. The base is printed on paper. Hope you enjoy the pictures.
  2. Good Morning, Attached are the first few photos of my next work in progress, this is a bit of kit bash between these two kits and both are being built parallel. 20200105_134423 by J Hooper, on Flickr The fist subject will be a new F-15SA (Saudi Advanced), still being flown by Boeing for flight test and integration purposes. Inspiration for this build can be seen in the link below: https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/21755/f-15sa-bristles-with-a-dozen-aim-120s-missiles-during-star-wars-canyon-run The second subject will be a Israeli Defense Force F-15D, it will be one of the aircraft seen recently at Waddington, but with a different load out: Flickr Image (not mine!) The Great Wall Hobby kit is a Strike Eagle out of the box, where as the Hasegawa kit is really an F-15D with some extra parts thrown in. The Hasegawa kit is still, good, but it shows it's lineage, and there are still some steps that need to be taken to make it an accurate Strike Eagle. For that reason I will take advantage of the kit's individual qualities, to make the best out of both.
  3. Hi comrades! Here is my take on Hasegawa excellent kit with additions by Eduard brass, Montex and self made masks, and scratch made wiring for engine, undercarriage and bomb. Airframe riveted. Hope, You like it! Any comments are welcome!
  4. Improving Hasegawa 1:48 Tomcat – 00: General considerations I am a proud rivet counter distinctly affected by Advanced Modeler Syndrome (AMS). At 57, I am chronic. Given that AMS is not a life threatening disease, I refuse every therapy, keeping digging deeper into this hobby in the utmost contempt for the “out of the box” approach. So far, I refused from posting my work here or on any other forum. Doing that requires additional time and challenging abilities, like photography. In addition, English is not my mother language. In other words, this is going to be my first In-Progress thread and this is going to be the first time that I post here by my name and not by a nickname. The Hasegawa 1:48 Tomcat is well over thirty years old and very much has been said and written about it. Since when opening the box for the first time, I strong had the feeling that this kit was rushed up from the few years older 1:72 Tomcat, by any account relatively more accurate and detailed. Maybe this is the reason why fit is quite below Hasegawa standards in 1:48. Actually, I always believed this as the worst modern jet kit in this scale by this firm, but no other Tomcat was a better choice for a rivet counter like me. As a result, the Tamiya Tomcat was a very good news, but suddenly it left me with a bunch of obsolete Hasegawa Tomcats. I managed to sell them all my Hasegawa but one, a second hand kit missing the original box, instructions, and decals, but full of many spare parts and additional sprues that make possible a build of any version of the Tomcat. This kit is now on my workbench. In an attempt to please my AMS, my plan is to improve my Hasegawa Tomcat using only a few of the many aftermarket items produced for this kit over the years. For one reason or another, I often ignore Hasegawa's instructions sequence. In general, after studying the sprues long enough to get bored, I am used to writing my construction order, trying to break down the construction process into many different subsets. This time makes for six subset: Forward Fuselage Main Fuselage Tails, Stabilizers, and Strakes Cockpit and Wheel Wells Wings Undercarriage Legs, Wheels, Seats, and Canopy Unless I change my mind on the way (quite possible), my intention is to build one of the first boat tailed Tomcat with the rear air brakes open and the wings swept forward, to take advantage of the options offered by this old kit. As for the aftermarket, I am planning to use nothing more than an Aires cockpit and some Royale Resin wheels, but I'm not really sure. About the markings, I have no idea yet. More from me soon.

  13. Hello: Here you have some pictures of my Voyager model. Its in 1/48 from Hasegawa You can see more in Sven site http://www.ninfinger.org/models/html_pix/rspvoyager.html
  14. Now that the Tamiya Tony is in the case, time to start on the next project which I picked up in Chattanooga in January, The Hasegawa 1/48 P-39 along with a beautiful wooden base from Bases by Bill (picture coming!) with the nametag of the Soviet P-39 ace Alexander Pokryshkin. Picked up the kit as a package with the nice wooden base and name plaque, and the Eduard PE bits for the interior, placards and flaps. I'm more used to Eduard's really nice P-39 kits which are mostly out of production now, but the Hasegawa kit has a nice level of detail and the Eduard PE just adds to the detail. Name tag from Bases by Bill: Here is the cockpit floor, with some of the Eduard PE bits attached: Debated on using the Eduard PE seat, but it is so much thinner than the kit set, and has much better detail. Still have some work to do but got it together. Have to close some gaps. The Eduard PE rudder pedals: Here is the kit IP, on the right, sanded down and the angle parts cut off, to take the Eduard PE color IP, which has already been sandwiched using Formula 560 clear glue. Will paint the exposed part with Interior Green or black as appropriate. Here is the IP all together, with the PE machine guns: Base coat of Model Master Acryl Interior Green. Nice detail showing up on the seat (and bits still be to be added). The floor shows where the tweezers were holding it during painting. Should be behind the seat-back and under the equipment shelf. Probably will touch it up with a brush anyway. Used a drill bit to open up the holes in the canopy frame. The Hasegawa kit is pretty good so far. And a couple of the black bits painted - lower instrument panel with the two slots for the PE knobs, and the radio which goes behind the seat. Will address that seam on top: So just getting started, lots of details still to be painted. Stay tuned! Chris
  15. Good Morning, Did you buy one of the Hasegawa Idolmaster boxings in 1/72 because they were on sale and cheap? Did you already have other decals to make a normally marked jet? Do you have those sheets still sitting around somewhere? If so, I'm looking to take some of them off your hands! My two young daughters and I are building a couple of airplanes, and we could use some of the stars/flowers/hearts/whatever to dress up their custom paint schemes. Oldest picked a V-22, youngest picked a F-16 and they are going to have some very bright paint, and could use appropriate decals. Cheers and thanks! Hoops
  16. I recently got this kit as a started one that was missing pieces. I was able to go thru my spares and find all I needed except the following: A10 (intake-see picture) MA #1,2,7,9,10 (PE fret-see picture) I'll be happy to take them used, painted, whatever you got and will pay for your time and parts. Thanks a bunch! Later, Lee
  17. This is the quarter scale Phantom FGR 2 92Sqn special blue scheme by Hasegawa. Difficult and expensive to come by, but still the only one on the market. As always an excellent kit with few hangups. Extra detail was provided by eduard PE and resin. The base is home made. Built for one if the aircrew of this aircraft with only three training missiles. This aircraft is being restored at my local museum: Tangmere Military Aviation Museum.

  19. I'm going thru my stash and ran across a few oldies that I am missing parts for. 1/72 Matchbox M16 Halftrack (missing tracks and decals), Fujimi 1/76 M4A1 Sherman (missing all of sprue A) and Hasegawa 1/72 High Speed Tractor M5 (missing sprue B and decals). If any of you have these parts (or even ones from other kits that might work) please let me know. I'd be happy to buy/trade. I'll take used/started parts too. I'd just like to be able to build these. Thanks! Lee
  20. Hasegawa 1/72 S-2A / S2F-1 Tracker kit... Box has minor wear, bags still sealed... $25.00 plus shipping... email if interested... tacoma25(at)verizon(dot)net
  21. Hi everyone! Back again after taking another break from building for awhile... So here is my latest completed project, the 1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18C Hornet in VFA-86 Sidewinders CAG markings circa 2006. I was drawn to the large orange diamond on the spine, much like the old A-7s of the same squadron in the late 70s, so I knew I had to build my first Legacy Hornet in those markings. Soon I will build a Corsair in the same "diamond spine" style markings. The decals I used are from Afterburner Decals "Snakes on a Plane" sheet. These performed flawlessly like usual. The kit itself is really nice, great detail and fit was quite good other than the intakes. That was a bit of a struggle there to align. The biggest issue I encountered with this build was self inflicted, however. A couple of weeks ago I had a long weekend off, and I decided I was going to try to finish the build that weekend, despite having a considerable amount of things to do. So I decided to skip the future coat step before decals, which I have never done before. Well, the decals went down ok (I did get some silvering I never get however), but the big issue was the wash. Man, it was a MAJOR pain to get that off, even with turpenoid. So I learned a lesson, I will not skip that step ever again! As far as aftermarket, I threw in a Quickboost seat and Aires closed nozzles. GBU-16s are from Hasegawa weapons set D, and AIM-9Xs are from the Tamiya F-16C Aggressor kit. Now that I have built a Hasegawa Hornet, I will be interested to see how the Kinetic one compares. Kit: 1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18C Hornet "Golden Dragons" boxing Decals: Afterburner Decals "Snakes on a Plane" Aftermarket: Aires Closed Exhaust Nozzles, Quickboost Ejection Seat, Hasegawa Weapons Set D Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), Gunze Aqueous FS 33613 Radome Tan, FS 36375 Light Ghost Gray, FS 36320 Dark Ghost Gray, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Green, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, and Burnt Iron. Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash. Now on to the pics, I hope you like!
  22. Little late getting this posted but looking at another large Hasegawa bird this week, with their 1/32nd scale N1K2-J in markings for the series Shidenkai no Maki.
  23. 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.
