Show us your Hasegawa builds
Posted by Fly-n-hi on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 12:26 AM

Since I've really enjoyed following Stikpusher's Show you Monogram/Revell builds thread I thought I would start a Show you Hasegawa builds thread.  I'd love to see other 'gawa builds.  I'm kinda surprised nobody did this before but I'm happy to get it started...assuming you guys are interested in sharing (someone else can do the Tamiya, Academy, etc... build threadsCool)

I noticed that the majority of my builds are Hasegawa and the vast majority of my stash kits are Hasegawa.  I'm willing to bet that alot of you guys have quite a few Hase builds yourselves.

I'll approach it like Stik did...just one plane per post.  Tell us about any extras that went into your kit, as well.  I'll get it going:

.

Here's a 1/48 F-14A in VF-84 Jolly Rogers colors.  I was inspired to build this after watching The Final Countdown although the colors are not quite the right vintage for the movie.  I used an Aires 'pit, Hasegawa weapons, decals and canopy/windscreen from an Italeri kit.

Ok...let's see what you all have got!

I'll put another one on here to help get things going.  Here's a 1/200 DC-10-40 in Northwest Orient colors circa 1980's.  The paint is Talon acrylic aluminum with aluminum and steel buffing powders:

(Many more than these of course, but I happened to have the Japanese stuff on Photobucket right now...)

All in 1/72, and probably built 8-9 years back

Ki-84

Zero floatplane

and a Zero

On the bench: Italeri 1/72 Henschel 126; Heller 1/72 Curtiss Hawk H.75; Airfix 1/72 Supermarine Swift. And probably a cat when I'm not looking...

I saw this thread and thought what a great idea. Then i looked at my completed builds and was shocked. Despite all the gawa kits in the stash, i have the grand total of 2 built. I know i have built others in the past that i don't have any more, but i was sure i would have had more than 2 now.

Anyway, here they are. Both 1/72nd.

MiG 23, with a bit of Eduard PE and extra colour paints. The first in my MiG line.

B-24H. This is one of their J kits, the one with the Dragon and his tail markings, and it was backdated to an H. Lots of eduard PE, xtracolour paint and xtra decal decals. This is the first completed build in my Norfolk airfields project. One down, 35 to go.

Well they say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery...Wink And while Hasegawa kits do not get slammed on here as "unbuildable" or "junk", I think that it is nice to see a thread for them here too. As for my own completed builds only two are Hasegawa, and one was never photographed digitally it has been done for so long. But I do have a good amount of unbuilt Hasegawa 1/48 birds in my stash... all in good time.

So my sole digitally photographed Hasegawa build, their old (raised panel lines!Surprise) 1/48 N1K2 Shiden Kai, which I modified to early production by widening the chord of the vertical stabilizer. Decals from Yellow Hammer.

A beautiful kit of a beautiful bird!

I also have their Ki-27 built, but it has been ravaged a bit by time and marauding cats...Super Angry

Nice job on an old kit stik.

I must admit i hadn't noticed your RM thread. I know, how could i. But its a great idea. I only have one that fits the bill, built about 15 years ago. It is still in one piece, just about, so i will get some piccies at the weekend. Great idea.

Nice builds guys!

Fly: how did you find that tomcat? I've heard they are a beast to put together, but I really want to do one at some point.

Prof, its a nice kit but the cockpit is is pretty plain.  The Aires 'pit does wonders for it.   I wouldn't really say that its a beast to put together but its definitely not an easy kit.  Also, you have to be careful when selecting the kits because there were earlier boxings that had a problem with the engine intake molding.  Apparently, the intakes didn't line up correctly with the fuselage until later on in the production when it was fixed.

Okay, I've only built one Hasegawa kit so far.  It seems I've mostly been a Monogram Man. Big Smile Here's my Kyushu J7W3 Shinden.   Obviously a conversion of the venerable J7W1 Shinden 1/48 kit.

My Hasegawa models are kits that I've builded when I started modeling,
But here is one!

A Hasegawa kyushu J7W1 Shinden, got the prop colour wrong, maybe I'll fix that one day, but I rather leave my models alone when they're finished...

Seems like most of my Hasegawa models are in the stash and need to be build...

With regards, Ninetalis.

Ninetalis, you just know I like that Shinden.  Hehe, that's how mine started out, before disaster struck, that is.  You did a great job, wrong prop color or not!

Here's another one.  Some of you saw this one recently when I finished for the Ground Attack GB hosted by TheWildChild.  Its the 1/48 F/A-18E wearing the Royal Maces CAG paint from 2008.  This kit used Afterburner decals, Hasegawa and Wolfpack weapons, and Eduard PE cockpit details:

I got this one. Hacked the wings and flaps off and rehung them, drooped the stabilzers, cut out the cowl flaps and made some more from a coke can, Cutting Edge decals of one I saw in an "Air Combat" from 1974. Really cool for me since I lived in Olathe, KS as a kid.
