  1. Having found that I already have the in box pics on BotoPh*cket have used those to save me time If ANYONE has problems seeing the pics PLEASE let me know and will replace them using another host site. (Having just previewed the post I see that the pics have a bloody watermark on them, many apologies) This kit depicts craft from the sequel "Last Exile- Silver Wing". Some concept art is included along with the instructions... ...and some super livery options! The main fuselage section in lovely red plastic and a sprue of dark grey for the gubbins. Fam's Vespa comes on a sprue of light grey plastic. This has already been started, but as can be seen it's a tiny little ship and hopefully should be deemed less than 25% Photos of the work done will follow shortly The stand is a rather splendid affair. Finally the decals Overall an impressive package imho. The only disappointment is that the background info is all in Japanese Looking forward to getting on with putting this one together
  2. Eduard's boxing of the Hasegawa Hawker Typhoon, with Resin 4 blade prop, and elevators. Painted with Tamiya acrylics throughout, weathered lightly with some oils and pastels. Lost one rocket, so it's being re-armed 🙂 Peter
  3. Thoroughly pissed off the with SE5a so started something different as a break. Started over the long weekend - the Eduard rebox or the Hasegawa Typhoon 1B with lots of etch Work commences with replacing most of the plastic cockpit with Etch 🙂 Peter

    Bf 109 G-10 1:32

    Well I said I like unusual German aircraft, and they don't come more unusual than this. On 20th April 1945 two pilots from the Croatian Air Force defected to join pro-communist forces at Mostar. Their aircraft were soon given a hasty update to their paint job, and became part of a scratch unit known as the Mostar Squadron. This is my latest completion: proper "beauty shots" when I get around to them. Built from the Hasegawa 1:32 G-10 kit, with MDC seat belts and Ventura decals. I had some slight issues with these: the large fuselage stars broke up on application. As I still had some stars left on the decal sheet, I used these as a template to cut home-made masks. The numbers worked OK. The tail markings were also supplied as complete decals, but I decided to paint these, and just cut out the small star from the decals. Thanks for looking.
  5. An eternity ago I built Hasegawa's 1/48 F-104C Starfighter straight from the box in a Puerto Rico ANG scheme. I soon discovered that the 1/48 decals by Eagle Strike (48-239, "Starfighters 1") weren't really scaled well. The Puerto Rico flag for the rudder was way too large, as were the U.S. insignia. So I opted to build it as 0-70929 as seen on this photo on Airliners.net: http://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Air-Force/Lockheed-F-104C-Starfighter/170101 You can see that the ragged edge of the anti-dazzle panel on the nose is accurate and not because of a lack of masking capabilities! I did suffer from a lack of observation skills though, as the photo is of F-104C 57-929 and the decals for 56-929... The weathering was done rather heavy-handed as the real PRANG One-Oh-Fours didn't look too "concours-ready" either! One thing that no manufacturer of Starfighter models seems to get right is that the tip tanks of the F-104A, F-104B, F-104C and F-104D had small inboard fins, similar as the outboard fins. It was not until the F-104G that the inboard were enlarged... So aside from adding simple pieces of seatbelt from tape between the headrest and the moulded-in belts on the backrest, I scrounged the outboard fins from another pair of tiptanks to get this (in my eyes) quite visible detail right.
  6. A real old beauty from way back in 1980 when Hasegawa launched their 1/200 Love Liner 200 Civil Aircraft Series, the British Airways Negus & Negus livery L-1011 Tristar. I always felt it a shame that Hasegawa never went on to produce a -500 series or at least include an extra sprue with the 'Frisbee' streamlining stem that was later added to the underside the centre engine of a number airlines L-1011's and was a standard feature of the -500. It is not difficult to add to the kit, just annoying the manufacturer didn't as the alteration in 1/200 would have been relatively easy to mill out of the original mould. My kit was still sealed until last weekend when I got this one onto the work bench - it was raining hard and needed something to do while my 777's and Pokémon 747 were drying off after some decaling. I felt a bit sad breaking the kits contents bag seal but the kit was intended to be built, as opposed to be kept as a reminder of when manufacturers of civil aircraft kits actually thought of BA as a livery worth including in their range. here she is so far, ready for the windows to be infilled. I am deliberating whether or not to have her flaps and slats deployed. As you can see from her nearly 39 year old decal sheet, Hasegawa had some very ludicrous ideas about how their modellers went about building a kit with a solid blue under-belly. Thanks for following if this type of kit interests you
  7. The original kit is the old Hasegawa 1/200 American Airlines 767-200 kit from the 1990's. Bought for £8 from my local model shop in West Drayton (Aviation Hobbies) a few months ago, I have saved this in time for my Farnborough IPMS club's February Antipodean competition next month. Appropriately, I purchased the intended Quantas decals from Australia which only took 2 weeks to arrive by post - and they are the genuine down-under "ROO-DECAL" product! I think the seller must have been having a clear out as I received 3 sets of decals for the price of the advertised single set. Started last night in-between floating the last of the decals onto my last 777 on the bench, the kit has immediately gone together with all the ease and great engineering that Japanese kit manufacturers are well known for. Up against a 777-300 in the same 1/200 scale, the 767-200 looks rather inferior Thanks for looking in John
  8. This is the 2012 edition of Hasegawa's 1/200 A320 which was released in the Japanese Peach Air carriers livery - I purchased Draw Decals 1/200 easyJet decals new release of the airline's 200th A320 delivery celebration colour scheme in an overall orange paint scheme. With all the outstanding Japanese engineering, the kit went together without any issue and the digital silk decals were a delight to work with, The kit is almost complete so this is pretty much a complete A-Z run through of a WIP for you here, needing only a final coat of gloss clear coating tonight. ********************************** Starting life as a Peach short haul carrier with Draw's 2018 celebratory decal set: The kit contents: Work started 2 weeks ago I have never worked in orange before and like yellow, it turns out to be a very unforgiving colour. After some testing, I used a lower toned undercoat orange under the intended top colour coats A bit blurry, The top coat is Tamiya's X6 Orange which turned out to be spot on for squeezy jet With the wings lower grey shade on, this is the corroguard masking process and the tail plane leading edge masking masking out the flap runners and then... Decal work starting A massive issue here. Draw's decal is 4 mm longer than the door recess (below). I had to trim this back and use one of the kits door decals to rectify this issue later on and now with the starboard side front door decal sorted and corrected Its a nifty little kit and I am pleased with Draw's decals. Thanks for dropping in for a look. I will put some photos of the completed model up on the RFI pages soon cheers - John
  9. Make: Hasegawa Scale: 1:48 Kit Number: 09897 Model: Mitsubishi F-1 Markings: 6th Sq 8th J.A.S.D.F. ACM Meet 1996 “Sea Camouflage” Paint Method: Brush Paints Used: Revell Aquacolor Decals Fixing: Decal Fix Weathering: Flory dark Wash, Diluted Aquacolor Varnishes: Humbrol Clear, Revell Aquacolor Aftermarket: None Scratch Build: None. My attempt at the Mitsubishi F-1 which I bought on a whim when it was reduced at Hannants quite a few months ago, Have to say I was impressed with the kit although the painting instruction did confuse me for a while. Always thought it reminded me of the Jaguar and then a little research shows that the Japanese were interested in the Jaguar but decided to go it alone.
  10. A 25 year old kit with virtually unusable decals brought to life over 6 weeks of building in between a pair of 1/144 Dreamliner's. This is one of Hasegawa's very first 747-400 releases dated back to 1993. Being the D variant, there were no winglets and the aircraft resembled more of a -300 style look - perhaps that's how Hasegawa got away with releasing a -400D before they released their -400 kits. This is a very collectable and expensive kit, normally reaching around £75 however a friend was happy to let it go for £20 on the basis of the decals being in very bad condition. Hasegawa released a similar design in 1996 when Pokémon was released and ANA adopted a single aircraft in the Pocket Monster livery. The majority of the large decals were crazed and broken up leaving me the challenge of plenty of masking and pin stripe decaling by hand which was a challenge but fun. I used 26Decals 747 detailing set where applicable however the yellow nose stripe, white tail, whale fin, ANA logo, white whale chin were all airbrushed after careful hours of masking. The whale chin required numerous 0.5mm black decal lines which left me holding my breath to help keep my hands steady. The livery was the result of a nationwide competition launched by ANA in 1993 given to infant and junior school children in Japan tasked to design a livery to celebrate ANA's 500th Millionth passenger carriage. She flew in service from September 1993 with a maximum passenger load of 570 bums on seats. The winning design depicts a Blue Whale with a multitude of sea creatures swimming alongside. The 400D 747's were used by ANA for their short haul internal domestic routes around Japan for maximum capacity, many use sectors (like the older -100SR and -200SR 747's). The 747D had strengthened undercarriage to cope with multiple landings and take-offs as opposed to the long haul 747 variants. At just about 12 inches long, this little 1/200 kit is a real joy to build and very accurate - typical to the Japanese model market in general. Enjoy....

  11. This is the Hasegawa kit in 1/72. It's not a bad model, although I did have some issues fitting the engine nacelles that required a bit of filling and sanding, otherwise things went together well. Chinese markings come from the spares box with the fin flash being masked and painted. Surprisingly, the colour picture which my build is based on shows the aircraft in a reasonable condition, thus I chose not to highlight all the panel lines, just those around the engines as they appeared a bit grimey. I am lacking some white numbers on the tail, I couldn't find small enough decals in the spares.

    I've retired! :-) Lots of time free to indulge my hobbies, so I've started with this, the Hasegawa 1/48 kit built straight from the box apart from seatbelts and antenna wire. Cheers, Dean
  13. With the complexities of the tempest on the bench I have also decided on an easy build for when things get interesting with the tempest and this will be a paint and assemble straight out of the box exercise I picked it up at the Essex modellers show Sunday for the princely sum of 20 quid and it's one of those kits that scream build me out of the box so I just had to build it so here's the box And here's the base coating of the interior The phone has done some weird stuff to the colour it's actually Tamiya's cockpit green which is basically nakajima interior green originally mixed up for the nakajima zeros produced a few years back

    These are probably the first models I have finished in a year or so. First up is the Hasegawa Beaufighter TF X , representing a very late production airframe. This aircraft served with 489 (NZ) Squadron at Dallachy in 1945. Next up is a very early Beaufighter TF X from 404 (Canadian) Squadron whilst at Wick. This is the new Airfix kit. The panel lines were reduced somewhat. Markings are a combination of kit decals and Aviaeology. I am out of practice with my painting skills. I still think the Hasegawa is a better quality kit......
  15. Ok folks, after a long wait, here's my FG.1 in naval uniform. Kit by Revell (Hasegawa re-pop), intakes by Aires, cockpit by Eduard, weapons by Hasegawa, paint by Gunze, decals by Model Alliance, patience by me... Scene setter first: Then the walk around shots: A couple of close up detail shots: And a couple of overhead shots: Standing alone on the tarmac, ready to get going... Hope you like it, Dean
  16. Hello all, Haven't done a WIP for a while, but with a new forum to play with I thought I'd give it a go again. I've recently started a Hasegawa 1/48 Phantom, which although it came in the FGR2 boxing from Revell, I'm doing it as a FG.1 from the Royal Navy instead. All the parts are in the FGR2 boxing for the FG.1 version, with the exception of the slotted tailplanes, and I swapped my unslotted ones for the correct set with another modeller a while ago. I've also got the Quickboost resin ejection seats, the Eduard colour PE set, Aires resin jet pipes and the Alley Cat resin full depth intakes. Model Alliance decals will be used, although I haven't made a final choice as to which airframe will be represented yet. I thought I'd start by showing the process of adding the intakes, as the instructions that come with them are a bit vague, and you never know, it might help someone. This is the bit that needs to be removed from the kit fuselage sides. I've chain drilled a series of holes all around the bit I want to remove: So I can get a scalpel blade in the holes, and cut through the thin dividing bit of plastic left: Meaning I can remove this bit of plastic and sling it: The plastic step near the front of the new aperture was removed by scoring along the joint with a scriber until it fell away, and the resulting messy hole was tidied up by scraping with a scalpel blade: The new aperture was fettled and scraped until the new resin part could be fitted. Test fit, scrape, test fit, scrape...etc. You can see the depth of the new intakes here: And here they are fitted. They're a very good fit, obviously modelled from the original kit parts, and won't need much filling: The full depth looking down them is apparent: There's a nice set of turbine blades to go in there yet, to complete the effect. I'll try to photograph it once it's painted. The underside wing part needs a little thinning and trimming to clear the underside of the intake trunking, but I haven't shown that as it really is minimal. I've also made a start on the cockpit. The resin seats are painted, and the colour PE has been started in the tub. This is not complete yet, as the rear instrument panel has some very delicate attachments to go at the top, and I'm not going to do that until the canopy centre is ready to be installed over the top to protect it. Due to the nature of my business, I tend to be sporadic with my building and updates, so more when it happens... Cheers, Dean
  17. An enjoyable build with a few modifications. Build thread here: Hasegawa 1:72 Polikarpov I-16 Type 18, 72nd Air Regiment, Northern Fleet Air Force, Murmansk 1941
  18. Here is a look at an older project - the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E Warhawk which builds problem-free.
  19. So after a bit of hassle with the wheel covers and alignment (still don't think it's 100%, but not much scope for adjustment) I'm calling this one finished. It's built OOB apart from Eduard belts, acetate gunsight and Techmod decals. Not a bad kit considering its age, but there were some issues with the canopy framing being poorly defined, particularly the rear section which is pretty much DIY. Anyway, here are some pics: Supermarine Spitfire Mk. IXc, 306 (Polish) Squadron, F/Lt Jozef Zulikowski, RAF Northolt 1942.
