WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-22S Sturmvogel II Pt.3

Cockpit done! First up, an overall coat of Vallejo US Grey. Then Black Grey for the stripe on the bang seat and an overall wash of the same color to add depth. The same was done on the control panels but they ended up still looking quite bare. Besides, it’s supposed to be inflight so …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-22S Sturmvogel II Pt.2

Progress slow (as usual) but basic construction done. First up though, is to do the landing gear in the up position. I cut out the support beams on the gear doors and then I used some blu-tack as support for the doors to make sure they don’t fall into the bays. The rear landing gear …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-22S Sturmvogel II Pt.1

Like all of their Macross series kits, Hasegawa engineered the kit to be done up in pretty straightforward subassemblies. I decided to do them up as much as possible before the painting process. As usual, we begin with the cockpit. It’s quite sparse but should be OK with the pilot figure in it. Next up, …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/48 F-16C 414th CTS Pt.3

Crap. It’s been almost 3 months since I did anything else to this build. Today, I finally got around fixing the demarcation lines. And boy did I have a ‘great’ time doing it. First I used blutack to mask all over the kit. And ended up not doing anything to it for 3 weekends. And …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/48 F-16C 414th CTS Pt.2

I say. This project has been ongoing (mostly off) for almost 3 years! Who would have thunk. Time sure flies. Anyhow, before I get bitched to death by my friends who know about this project, I decided I really have to finish this one. So anyhow, I still don’t have a proper workdesk, but I …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/48 F-16C 414th CTS Pt.1

This kit is part of the ‘US Aggressors groupbuild’. Construction went on quite straightforward although there are some problems here and there. Nothing that putty couldn’t fix though. One particularly annoying part is that I have to putty off the holes under the wings meant for underwing stores. Obviously if I was...
