Hmmm...V-22 in these colours... :-*




Hasegawa likes the way you're thinking!  :)

Slated for a September release!
- LINK to kit.

And (in December) a version in the JGSDF helo scheme!  LINK!

Cheers,

I believe that a JGSDF scheme will likely be used on the first ones with other schemes appearing later.  I gather that, as with the USMC, the V-22 is intended to replace all the V-107-IIs (export CH-46s) in Japanese service.

I wonder if we'll see F-35s in that two-tone blue?

About the Hasegawa 1/72 V-22 kit, the way the wings and nacelles are modelled, it looks like it would be comparatively simple to do the wing and proprotors in teh stowed position (albeit needing new parts for these in place of the kit parts - the nacelles wouldn't be a problem, though).  Definitely something for the aftermarket folk.

Yep, rather like that one.  From the way the Hasegawa kit goes together, I reckon a stowed wing will be easier with it.

Interesting the way the forward Phalanx gun is offset to starboard isn't it? Almost as if they were leaving room to port for a big metal thing that you could jump over on skis...... ;)

No, no, never, that would be far too war like  ;D

Ever since I first heard of the Hyuga I have been a fan of these ever improving ships and have thought them to be ideal for the RAN.  Actually they are not dissimilar to the RNs aborted Escort Cruiser of the 1960s in concept, hence what the Invincibles were originally seen as.

There was a very good piece by a retired Japanese admiral explaining the origins of these ships.  Basically during the 50s the reconstituted Japanese Navy the JMSDF determined that they needed hunter killer groups built around ASW carriers, CVS but were never able to obtain any so developed an alternative group intended to consist of a pair of DDHs and eight destroyers, two DDGs and six DDs.  There were four groups but only ever four DDHs, now these groups have evolved to consist of a through deck DDH, an AEGIS DDG, one or two non AEGIS DDGs and five or six DDs.  It was all about the number of helicopters required, one on each destroyer and the rest on the DDH, the larger ships permitting MCM helicopters and other specialist support types to be carried, as well as providing deeper level support for the destroyer ships flights.

Indeed: I always rather liked the Haruna and Shirane class DDHs, although I thought they could have usefully traded one or both of their 5" guns for something more potent.

If you went for Terrier it'd have to replace both 5" and the ASROC launcher as well, which wouldn't be bad since a Mk.10 GMLS can fire ASROC as well as Terrier. I'd only be happy with that if you could get three magazine rings (60 rounds) in though.

A Mk.13 would go very nicely in place of the B-pos 5". The difficulty would be finding space for fire-control radars if nothing else was sacrificed.

Something really cool in the making!  8) A 1/35 Hitachi Astaco Neo "excavator" with two arms.
According to Hitachi's Website (LINK!), they've "developed the ASTACO (Advanced System with Twin Arm for Complex Operation) in 2005 to respond to diverse application requirements of heavy-duty machines. A special feature of the ASTACO is its ability not only to make complex actions, such as cutting an object while holding it, pulling an object while holding other things, and bending long objects, but also delicate actions such as holding soft, fragile objects. This feature allows the ASTACO to operate in various fields, including recycling and handling dangerous articles, and rescuing people at disaster sites."


Found on HobbySearch: LINK!

I'll probably need several.  :icon_beer:

I go on Ebay to find a good deal (harder to come by these days) but also look at the kit boxing to relive the days of $0.99 kits. 

Here is one I have never seen:

Will they ever figure out the only true scale for such releases is 1/48? ???





OK, with the possibility that 1/35 may be in the mix, too. ;)

Seeing as it's just the latest iteration of their existing 30-year old Mi-24 kit, of course it's in 1/72.
Hasegawa creating an all-new 1/48 kit of it is unlikely.

^ Wait for the 1/48 Mi-24 by Annetra/AMK and then pester ScaleWorx to do a conversion set.  :)

Even though it's 1/72, I'll give this one a pass. With the Zvezda Hinds available, the Hasegawa Hind isn't worth anybody's time. It would probably be a lot easier to get an accurate Super Hind by adapting ScaleWorx' conversions set (though originally intended for the Hobby Boss kit) to a Zvezda Hind.
