Third kit in Hasegawa's Creator Series (after the one above and THIS ONE (http://www.hlj.com/product/HSGCW-02)) will be a 1/72 ASF-X Shinden II from the video game Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.

Speaking of beauty....
As a die-hard F-2 nut (yes, I even got the Idolmaster F-2s - in both 1/72 and 1/48!), I wouldn't mind Hasegawa releasing this one as a kit!

So, pray tell, Moritz, do you have the Hasegawa 1/72 FS-X kit of the early proposal that developed into the F-2?  The one that adds CCV/AFTI canards to a F-16C?  I'm thinking strongly of grafting a set of F-16CCV canards to a stock F-2A.  I've got a spine from a late Block F-16D that's going to be added to a F-2B for SEAD efforts.  Not necessarily in JASF markings of course.

Yay! Finally! (http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m309/ChernayaAkula/Emoticons/jump4joy1.gif) After Fujimi's blunder (totally wrong scale), it looks like Hasegawa will release their F-15E with new plastic parts to make a production-Strike Eagle! CLICK! (http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10192845)

So, pray tell, Moritz, do you have the Hasegawa 1/72 FS-X kit of the early proposal that developed into the F-2?  The one that adds CCV/AFTI canards to a F-16C? <...>


No, not that one, but I'm fairly sure I've got all iterations of their actual F-2 kits in 1/72.

I certainly can't argue with that lovely tasteful artwork on the wing.

Seems to me it would be nice in USMC markings for some reason.

Been eyeing-off the Camel for a few years now -- since its appearance in the 1986 catalogue !!!  Might just have to pre-order one even tho I'll probably not build it - the MaK cockpits need totally new interiors as the kit parts are too basic & toy-like.  My current MaK kits have been "in-progress" builds for 25yrs :(

I'd love a 72nd B-51 :)   but don't expect Hasegawa to do it - like Tamiya & Fujimi they've fallen off the innovation tree.

After being announced 26 years ago ...... that MaK Camel is now available (for a week or two -- extremely-limited-production kits).

Now you have no excuse for not turning that ESCI Osprey into something what-iffy.  The Italeri Osprey is much better than the ESCI kit and if you can find one I recommend acquiring it if for nothing but to compare the two kits.  Looking forward to seeing what the Hasegawa kit has to offer.

And both are better than the Hobbycraft kit which looks to be taken from a mock-up or very early prototype.

I find it interesting that Hasegawa finally does one not too long after a MV-22B squadron finally moves into the area.

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.

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.

Title: Re: Hasegawa
Post by: elmayerle on September 08, 2014, 02:36:38 AM
The new 1/72 Hasegawa toolings are really impressing me.
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.

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.

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.

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! (https://www.hitachicm.com/global/ourbusiness/products/double-front-work-machine/)), 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."

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.

I am looking forward to seeing this kit on the shelf.  If it is as good as the previous model released as the ASTACO Neo it will be quite the model. 

The snap-tite 1:32nd scale construction vehicles offered by Revell Germany of the Liebherr power shovel (tracked and wheeled versions) along with the Liebherr scoop loader are nice but the snap-features took away some of the details not that there is much to see beyond the various hydraulic hoses but the target audience was for a much younger crowd.  The Hasegawa kits on the other hand are not targeted towards the same client set.  I have the ASTACO Neo and will definitely add one of these Hitachi kits to the stash when it is available.  :)

Featured in the space adventures of Crusher Joe and his team in novels, manga, a movie, and OVAs, the Fighter-1 now gets its due as a superb new 1/72 kit in Hasegawa's Creators Works line! Fighter-1 will be able to be displayed either parked or in flight upon completion, and the kit includes a seated figure of Crusher Joe and a standing figure of Crusher Talos, both in scale.

[EDIT]Hasegawa has re-released the 1/72 scale F-35B [STOVL] which will include a new sprue with additional weapons

Additional parts will include a gun pod; the F-35B has no internal gun. Under wing mounted laser guided bombs will be included. Also included are the AIM-9X Sidewinders mounted close to the wingtip. I presume Hasegawa is calling this release “Beast Mode” as there is a fair amount of ordnance attached, negating somewhat the stealth capability of the aircraft.

I wish there would be three marking options including:

Re: F-35B "BEAST Mode":  Thing is, BF-02 can carry all that ordnance for aero-loads purposes, but can't employ it because it doesn't have the systems fit; it was/is an aero-loads and performance test aircraft without a lot of the production systems.  If I remember the plans correctly, BF-04 was the first B-model with a full systems fit.

Still, it would be nice to get that full ordnance fitment.

There was a transport version, the H8K2-L, if it had been used by a Dai Nippon Koku
(Imperial Japanese Airways) it would probably have received an overall silver scheme
like the H6K2-L and H6K4-L. Some H6Ks were used in the Netherlands East Indies
post-war, so a captured H8K2-L operated by KNILM (Koninklijke Nederlandsch-Indische
Luchtvaart Maatschappij - Royal Dutch Indies Airways)? Perhaps in a pre-war scheme?

No public details on what the "Second Pearl Harbor Attack".

Scalemates indicates this is the 4th release of the new 2017 tooling. It would appear the torpedoes were added in the initial release. But only two and this box art shows four.  [Edit: they maybe bombs and not torpedoes]

Interesting entry on something I wasn't aware of.  Though, the Wikipedia write-up did miss that Japanese aircraft refueling at French Frigate Shoals prior to attacking Pearl Harbor was described in Hector C. Bywater's The Great Pacific War, published in 1925.

Indeed.  This is mine from over a decade ago:

I notice they have a 1/72 SU-27 UAV coming, also.

Between this, the Mi-24 and the earlier A-10 I am starting to feel I am being stalked...

*GRIN* You're merely serving as an on-line inspiration, Greg.  Still, 'twould be nice if they'd give you some credit, or at least samples of each one you appear to have inspired.

No kidding! One copy fine but going through and copying everything is nuts. Wasn't there a sort run manufacturer that at least gave Greg (or the artist) credit on the boxtop? (After they were called on it)

Wasn't one of them the "AZ Models 1/72 MARTIN BAKER M.B.6 F. Mk.I SKY FERRET British Fighter" and the other a 1/35 Rheintochter on a tank chassis?

It's official. Time to call in your lawyers Greg! An appropriate settlement (if I may be so bold to suggest one) would be unlimited (and free) access to all of Hasegawa's products for all BTS members.

I have a question.  Hasegawa has a couple different 1/72 Sukhoi S-37/Su-47 boxing, one Idolmaster and one Ace Combat.  Is this their molds or are they using someone else's molds?  I ask because the Ace Combat version does look interesting.

Thank you very much for that information.  I'm still tempted to purchase the Ace Combat version to pose with an ASF-X and a FX-29B.

I've been wanting to build something for maybe 15yr and the ASF-X is perfect, but in New Zealand it sells for about $75 - about the same as a new-tool Airfix Lancaster  :'(
