This seems to be a thing in the modeling world. Maybe you should add an out of place item so once it's copied you can say "see, they copied my artwork"

An Area88 boxing of Hasegawa's old F-100 in 1/72.



Those camouflage colours... Israeli or Iranian Super Sabre anyone?
Or Greek (didn't they fly some F-5As in Asia Minor colours?) or Saudi Arabian? Or...?

And a new release of Hasegawa's 1/72 F-35B. This time in "beast mode"!  >:D


Now includes the gunpod, pylons and some armament. LINK!
Will probably have to buy this one. In-flight and bombed-up, the F-35 looks pretty cool!  :smiley:

[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:
  • F-35B SDD flight test unit No. 2 "BF-02"
  • United States Marine Corps 121st Marine Battle Attack Squadron "Green Knights" Affiliation aircraft
  • RCAF 409 Nighthawks SQN  8)

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.

It would be interesting to do one of those in a civilian scheme - maybe passenger plane or even firebomber.

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?

I'd be tempted to get it for the box art alone. I wonder if this has any upgrade parts? I notice the art has it carrying a quartet (! ) of torpedoes, and I don't remember the kit having those...'course, it has been ages since I've seen the sprues.

There is that temptation.  I wonder what exactly they mean by "Second Pearl Harbor Attack"?  A follow-up attack in December of 1941 or a later attack on a rebuilt Pearl Harbor?

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.

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?
