A new 72nd scale Sci Fi kit from Hasegawa, said to be inspired by the 'long nosed 190' of all things!

New kit, old manga (1953) and anime (1978 and on).

I remember seeing the old Takara kit of the Space Wolf in a Beaverton, OR hobby-shop in the early '80s.

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

This beauty!  :-*

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! 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!

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.

Moritz

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.

For you Eurofighter fans that prefer smaller scale this is probably some good news: Hasegawa 1/72nd scale Eurofighter Typhoon in RAF markings (Kit Number HSGE40) - HobbyLink Japan

All kinds of neat sci-fi stuff coming soon. There's the latest Maschinen Krieger release, the LUM-168 Camel in 1/20 scale. Next, a model of Tatianan's vanship from Last Exile.

*SIGH* Too much stuff to buy and too little money! :icon_crap:

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 :(

If the info in Cybermodeler's 2013 Announced Aircraft Kit Release Schedule is correct, Hasegawa will be releasing a 1/72 Mosquito FB XVIII "Tsetse" in March.

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).

I'm stoked about the MV-22 Osprey from Hassy. I reckon it'll be a bit better than my Esci boxing!

First time I actually looked in this thread...




Dude, I'd be all over that! (The kit, I mean. No, really.)

MV-22? That's kinda exciting though! In 1/72 I hope?

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.

1:72 has never been "my" scale but Hasegawa's Eurofighter looks very enticing.

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.

Maybe Hasegawa has someone on the JASDF procurement boards, and they know an MV-22 with big red circles on it is not too far off?

Wouldn't look bad in this scheme either.
