Has anyone experience with their 1/72 F-2A/B kit?    The 1:48 series is fantastic.

Same here.  Looking to build a F-2B with a stretched version of the late-model spine, CFTs, and sensor fit for a SEAD bird.

A 1:48 F-2B just showed up on the doorstep arriving from Japan.
Yes, it's for something in the near future Whiffverse.

Well, just looking at the sprues, I'm inclined to say 'twill be a more accurate kit than the Italieri one in 1/72, which is the most accurate of available 1/72 kits (the old Esci kit is marginally less accurate - IRS doesn't look right at all) and the Hobbycraft kit looks to be based on the mockup with no IRS at all.

Mind you, in a few years, there's going to be alternate intakes that'll need aftermarket kits and likely some other changes, too.

Alternate intakes for the V-22.  Working on the mod kit right now.

Ah, OK, my mistake.  So, anything you can tell us?  Exotic shape?  Bigger?  Smaller?  Relocated?  ;)

Something of a shape change and some changes in airflow path (somewhat analogous to the tropical filters applied to various Daimler-Benz powered fighters in North Africa.  The proof of concept aircraft demonstrated that our concept more than does what it was advertised to do and both the USAF and the USMC have put money toward production development; the head of AFSOC is extremely desirous of this change.

Found this on The Modelling News.

1/48 Kyushu J7W2-S Interceptor Fighter Shinden Kai Limited Edition

But with Luftwaffe markings: Red-10, Red-12 1947. Nice to see that Hasegawa is watching and following Special Hobby.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Mmmm, because Hasegawa has been making 1/24 car models for decades, and the market for 1/35
'civil' vehicles is tiny in comparison to the regular car modelling world?

To me it's the perfect scale.  :icon_fsm:

Me, too. Having the 1/72 Hobbycraft, Esci, and Italieri offering to examine - and being highly familiar with the real thing (both from "hands on" in mod work and in working with drawings and CAD models), I can say it's the only accurate kit in this scale.  Unless Italieri has retooled their nacelles, it's the only one with the "elephant ear" oil cooler scoop on the aft outboard side of each nacelle.

Further on this point, I've now had a chance to look over my Hasegawa MV-22B kit and it's definitely head and shoulders above any other V-22 kit in this scale.  The markings in tHE kit are for the "Boss Birds" of VMM-263 and VMM-265; the latter is predictable since they are now in Okinawa and the former is a most attractive scheme.  I can supply photos of both to interested parties.

I've loked at the kit a bit more and certainly it's spot on in the areas I'm familiar with - down to the point where I can definitely indentify the specific panel assemblies as depicted, and they're accurate.  Where the inlet mates to the nacelle is also precisely where it does on the real aircraft.
