Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

That’s another off the bench; Not a bad finish considering the kit was rescued from the Shelf of Doom but I have been punished on this one as I didn’t achieve a good enough gloss finish, which means air has been trapped underneath some decals and resulted in them ‘silvering’ so that’s as far asContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

It’s taken a while but all the stencil decals have finally been applied to the model; Originally I wasn’t going to bother putting the stencils on the underside but AMS (Advanced Modellers Syndrome) said otherwise. All I need to do is give it another layer of gloss varnish to seal the decals in then IContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Revell 1/72 Dornier 28 & Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

With the ICM 1/48 O-2A getting close to being finished I’ve put these two back on the bench with a view to getting them both done. Progress on the F-104 is slow due to the sheer amount of stencils that have to be applied but it’s getting there, the Dornier 28 I’m not so sureContinue reading “Revell 1/72 Dornier 28 & Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

The decal process is still ongoing…. I think I’m about halfway through and to cut the time down I’ll leave off most of the underside stencils as unless the model is going to be picked up nobody will see them anyway. Meanwhile I had a stack of kits turn up this week to review forContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

Just to try and get my mind focussed on modelling again I’ve decided to start decalling the F-104G. I’m using the Astra decals (an off-shoot of Daco) and they are going on very nicely, unlike the HaHen ones on the Revell 1/72 Dornier Do28 which were not stellar. So far I have put the mainContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

With yet another dismal day weather-wise here in the UK and zero chance of spraying the Porsche 934, I’ve got on with spraying the Hasegawa F-104G; For the dayglo panels, the fuel tanks were masked off then sprayed first with Tamiya XF-2 White then XF-3 Yellow followed by Vallejo Model Air Flourescent Red. I normallyContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

About two months ago I found this kit while searching for something else; https://andykingsmodelblog.wordpress.com/2020/10/29/the-things-you-find/ I had a look at it the other day to see if it worth saving and although there is filler on it, I cleaned it up and it is very much worth salvaging especially considering how much Hasegawa F-104’s go forContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”
