1/48 Tamiya P-51C Mustang

Again a Tamiya Mustang but this time C version. This is 1/48 P-51C Mustang finished with the markings of 43-24959 Gladys from 26th FS 51st FG in Kunming China during 1944 autumn. The construction started with the painting of cockpit […]

Fine Molds 1/48 D4Y3 Suisei “Judy”

Fine Molds was begun as a sideline in the late 80s by a few guys working at Hasegawa. Since that time, the small company has produced some interesting and rare subject matter, and reproduced them all quite faithfully. I have […]

Hasegawa 1/48 B7A Ryusei “Grace”

Aichi’s B7A (allied code-name “Grace”) was an Imperial Japanese Navy attack plane built around some strange but valid perameters. It was to carry a torpedo (a BIG one) or similarly-weighted attack ordnance. It was to be at least as fast […]

The Zero’s “Big Little Brother”- Fine Molds 1/48 A7M1 and A7M2 Reppu “Sam”

The Mitsubishi A7M Reppu was originally conceived in 1942 to eventually replace the A6M Zero carrier-fighter in the Imperial Japanese Navy. Bigger, more powerful and much faster than the Zero, the “Reppu” (hurricane) was a victim of delays, on the […]

Evading the Grummans- Hasegawa 1/48 C6N1 Saiun “Myrt”

Nakajima’s C6N three-man reconnaissance plane was originally intended to serve from Japan’s aircraft carrier fleet, but by the time it entered service, there were really no more carriers to fly from. Flying from land-bases, the “Myrt” was able to make […]

The Jack- Hasegawa 1/48 J2M3 Raiden

The Mitsubishi J2M Raiden (Jack) was a radical departure from conventional Japanese fighter design. It’s wide, barrel-like fuselage design stemmed from the layout of its Kasei engine, and was used primarily for home defense. As an interceptor, its performance never […]

Hasegawa 1/48 N1K2-J Shiden Kai

Hasegawa’s 1/48 N1K2-J shown here is the late-90s re-tool. Previously, the company had released their first 1/48 N1K2-J in the late 70s/early 80s with raised panel lines, about the same time as the 1/48 Kyushu Shinden. This new-tool kit is […]

Hasegawa 1/48 Zero Family-pt. 3

Here are the other Hasegawa 1/48 Zeros in my collection (so far). They include the A6M3 type 32 “Hamp” with squared-off wingtips and deleted radio and antenna, A6M3 type 22 with white fuselage band, and A6M5c type 52 “Hei” flown […]

Hasegawa 1/48 Zero Family-pt. 2

Here are some more Hasegawa 1/48 Zeros. The A6M2 Model 11, A6M2 Model 21, and the A6M2-K trainer in bright orange. The latter is from Hasegawa’s 65th anniversary limited-edition Zero box set released in 2005. The A6M2-K is now available […]

Hasegawa 1/48 12-Shi prototype- The First Zero

In 2005, Hasegawa offered a very limited-edition “65th anniversary” box set of Mitsubishi A6M “type 0” fighter kits in 1/48 scale. Fifteen different kits were included in the set, some of which were never previously released individually, all with first-rate […]
