48th Scale Hasegawa Phantom

August 13, 2013 · in Aviation · · 13 · 1.4K

When these kits first came out I wasn't in any hurry to build one. There were too many experts on hand to point out everything you did wrong, but I did buy the kits nonetheless. Several years ago I eventually got around to building my first . Now I am building the new Academy and I have posted my progress on the WIP Group. Hopefully, my next Phantom will be the E model.
