1/48 Nakajima Ki-27 by Hasegawa

by John Clark on December 20, 2017 in Aviation -- 23 Comments

This is an early Hasegawa boxing of the Mania Models Ki-27 from about 1977…I think. I put some Eduard details in the cockpit including a seat, belts, and instrument panel but since its so small I really didn’t do much […]

Here is my D.520. Its almost straight out of the box except exhaust stacks from ultra cast and a photoetch gunsight from Eduard. The pilot figure is from PJ Productions. Markings are a combination of masks and the god awful […]

Hasegawa 1/48 A6M3 Zero 22

by John Clark on September 5, 2016 in Uncategorized -- 38 Comments

I added a CMK interior and some wire to the engine and landing gear but that’s about it. I am not sure who made the pilot’s body but the head is from Reheat. This is my interpretation of Hiroyoshi Nishizawa’s […]

This was built primarily out of the box with an Ultracast seat added and the prop pieced together from a CMK 109E prop. The documentation is all over the place on this aircraft. I have seen it referred to as […]

This Hellcat was flown by Texas pilot Arthur “Ray” Hawkins of VF-31 on the USS Cabot in September, 1944. I added an Obscureco cowl, Quickboost engine, and Squadron canopy. The pilot figure was bashed together from my parts box…head, torso, […]

1/48 Hasegawa Bf 109G-4/R6 Trop

by John Clark on January 19, 2014 in Aviation -- 14 Comments

This project started out as a Bf 109G-2 flown by Theodor Weissenberger of JG 5. The theory was that it was originally a Trop with a 78/79 factory finish that had 70/white applied over it. I applied the 78/79 finish […]
