1/48 Dassault Falcon 10
Posted by SteveFL on Thursday, April 05, 2018 11:18 AM

 

In the early 80s, Hasegawa created and released a 3 subject series of executive or business jets comprised of the Cessna Citation 500, Gates Learjet 35, and the Dassault Falcon 10, which is what I have here.  Over the years, Hasegawa has released them a couple of times with new box art and new decals, but essentially the exact same kit each time.  In the late 90’s Revell of Germany bought the tooling and released them all with more extensive modern decal sheets and optional tinted clear parts for all the windows and windscreen.  These are the most desirable boxing of all for these reasons.  This particular model is the Revell of Germany iteration and I thoroughly enjoyed building her.  Sure there are some seams to fill and sand, but overall the fit and level of detail is fantastic.  Hats off to Hasegawa.  I added a couple of fishing weights to the nose as all these business jets would otherwise be tail sitters.  I carefully painted the cabin and detailed up the instrument panel, but once she’s all buttoned up, you really can’t see inside.  However, I did jazz up the boarding stairs and door with handles, struts, and anti-slip step material.  I also added brake lines and landing lights to the main gear.  I also used a drop of epoxy to simulate the lenses of the nose lights.  The navigation lights were added to the wing tips by using small chucks of red/green toothbrush handles then sanded and polished down.  Some wash highlights the panel lines.  I probably dirtied up the underside too much.  All the markings and livery come right from the decal sheet.  No issues there either.  As always I greatly appreciate any and all comments or critiques.  Please enjoy the pics.

Nice modeling!  The dirty belly?  I think you should clean that.  All the 10's I ever saw were squeaky clean birds.  I flew two of them.

Hi ;

   Okay , I agree with Jeaton 01 . Having flown 10s , 20s and 30s from Orly to the States , I can unequivocally state the birds did not have visibly dirty bottoms . Even the Fed-Ex Conversions done by Little Rock Airmotive were always clean when we got them to service . 

   I would've liked someone to bring out all three  in 1/48 so I could have my Falcons in a row in my Office ! After being privy to airframe and all the necessary prints for my job I will say this much . Can you say work of art ?     T.B.
