1/48 Hasegawa HS-129B-1

March 5, 2014 · in Aviation · · 16 · 3K

Here is my HS-129B-1. This is built OOB with the exception of PE seatbelts. Painted with Gunze acrylics and weathered with pastels, oils, and silver pencil. A very nice kit to build with no problems encountered.

  1. Hello Geoff, a very nice looking build of a strange looking bird, I always think these look almost insect like , like a Wasp or a Hornet.
    Cheers N.

  2. Long time, no see, Geoff...good lookin' build of a not-so-frequently-seen Luftwaffe example. Ya dun gud! Nice photography as well.

  3. Geoff,
    May I add my compliments on an excellent build. You made the beast a Beauty.

  4. Thanks for sharing my favorite butt-ugly a/c! You did an exemplary job. Sweet!

  5. Hi Geoffrey, i second what Neil and Craig have said fantastic model
    i really like the contrast between the colours Great Job
    you know i dont think i have ever built one of these aircraft in all the years iv been ruining plastic and it could be possible i haven't got one in the stash
    Great Build and lovely Finnish


  6. I've always admired your beautiful work Geoff

  7. A well built tank buster Geoff, a nice paint job on an un usual plane .
    Well done sir.

  8. I've personally never been able to figure the interest in this airplane, but you certainly have my interest up over your very nice model!

  9. Hey Geoffrey well done, really can't add much more than what has already been said. However it is nice to see one built. I have this kit as well. Like yours the B-1 version not the cannon B-3, which I have in 72nd scale. Some mentioned it may not be the cleanest aircraft in the air, but then again the A-10 isn't exactly graceful looking either yet very effective. Really nice to see an Hs-129, thanks for sharing.

  10. Nice work on the model and VERY nice photos as well.

  11. This is the first HS-129B-1 that I've seen that has been done up right with the use of pastels and it would fall under the category of being a Goldie Locks kit...just right. " I like it".

  12. Nice clean build. Killer exhaust applications.

  13. Very nice build of an unusual model, and the photographs are great, too.

  14. That is an outstanding model you've built there. Fantastic work.
