Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Yah! I've snatching these up as soon as they've hit the shelf. I'm still waiting on the F-8E and the A-10, but looking forward to this one for sure.

Does Hasegawa ever sell spare decal sets?
Thanks!

The moulds for that are older than me.

Awesome. I've been buying them as well but lost track after the Kfir because of money shortage.  ;D    I buy 'em from Tokyo Hobby because they have them priced very reasonably.

I still need:

                 Mickey Scymon F-14 1/72.
                 Shin Crusader  1/72
                 Shin X 29  1/72
                 Greg Gates A 10 1/72

I think that gets me caught up? They can keep the 1/48 ones.

there's also Saki's Kfir in 1/72, it also comes with decals for his B-1B lancer (in scale 1/144 i think).

Got that one already along with Shin's F-20!  :mellow:   I said I was going to build that F-20 the moment it arrived but it's just been sitting around for months now along with the Kfir.  :rolleyes: ;D 

After I buy some tires for my vehicle and renew my insurance I'll most likely buy all the ones I'm missing in one whack. These things are like Pokemon.  :wacko:

Not having a CLUE what 'Area 88' is I looked it up on Wiki.

My confidence in the stuff there was shaken when I find they list the Blackburn Buccaneer in the 'Fighter and Interceptor' types..........

Blackburn did suggest a fighter variant (the P.140), but this was one of the paper aeroplanes they offered as an initial proposal only.

The full list so far for the Hasegawa ďCreators SeriesĒ featuring Kaoru Shintaniís Area 88 is:

1/48
Shin Kazamaís J35J Draken
Shin Kazamís F-8E Crusader
Mickey Simonís F-16 Tomcat
Greg Gatesí A-4M Skyhawk

1/72
Shin Kazamaís F-20 Tigershark
Saki Vashtahlís Kfir C2
Shin Kazamaís X-29
Mickey Simonís F-14 Tomcat
Shin Kazamaís J35J Draken
Greg Gatesí A-10 Thunderbolt II
Shin Kazamaís F-8E Crusader
Nguyen Van Chomís F-105D Thunderchief
Kim Abaís AV-8A Harrier (coming soon!)
Seiren Barnack's F-104G Starfighter (coming soon!) (update!)
Mickey Simon's F-100D Super Sabre (coming soon!) (update!)

Nothing following the Harrier has been announced yet, which makes me a bit worried since in the past the timeline between release and announcement has been a bit shorter.  Iím still hopeful weíll at least get to see Sirenís F-104. That should be an easy one finish the set off since then all the main hero planes would be covered.  Iíll be disappointed if that one doesnít cap the set.

The odds and ends ones Iím wishing, but not holding my breath, for are :

Gary MacBurnís MiG-21
Papa Wolfís MiG-27 (maybe as a MiG combo set!)
Mickey Simonís F-100D  (yay! updated!)
Greg Gates (or Campbellís) A-4M (even though Gregís could be easily achieved with extra decals leftover from the A-10).

The one Iím wishing I could wish for is Roundellís Bucanneer.  I doubt Hasegawa will borrow some molds from Revell or Airfix to get it done, but some professionally done decals of the pirate logo would be fantastic.

Iíve got all the 1/72 scale boxes released so far except the Crusader.  That one strangely didnít make it onto the shelf in Seoul. I wonder if the fact that it comes stocked with a resin figure had anything to do with that.  Of course both the Crusader and the Thunderchief are ďfor the decalsĒ purchases since the Academy and Trumpeter offerings (respectively) are far superior.

Oh, and the decals for Sakiís B-1 are 1/72 scale as well... I checked.
Thanks!

Well, well, well... I stand corrected! and happily so.

It seems that Hasegawa is indeed going to go the whole way with this set.  They've just announced the F-104G Starfighter "Seiren Barnack" and the F-100D Super Sabre "Mickey Simon". Yay!



Thanks!

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
