Default Hasegawa Eggplanes!

Since Cat has started his ultimate Zero build I thought I'd go ahead and quickly whip out a lil Zero that's been in my stash for years now. I did not resort to any AM accessories since Hasegaa has faithfully replicated evry line and detail of the Icon of all Japanese warbirds! I meticulously researched the correct shades of pint and then used whatever was on the bench and looked good to my eyes. I scoured every resource for correct markings and then used what was on the decal sheet. While it's still fresh and not yet dullcoated I will go ahead and say that Cat just might want to consult this a reference for his own build.

Yes gents, this is it. The pinacle of my modeling efforts. The most uber accurate, highly detailed, faithfully reproduced miniature I have yet done! An homage to WWII and my heritage in particular.

Me too! I was lucky enough to stash away the following way back when- TBF Avenger (2), Harrier, A6 Intruder, SR71 and an FW 190. I wouldn't have a one of them or even knew they existed until I stumbled upon a clearance table from a collector in a LHS. I bought what he had of them right then at a very reasonable price too!

Damn Don...!

Put that thing on a diet!Waaaaay too much of that ultra-rich high
grade aviation fuel.

That's a really nice little build ya' got there!

Haseawa is re-releasing the "egg planes".It'll be nice to see these
caricatures of their more lethal counter-parts on the LHS shelves again.

Great job!

U-boater,
Yeah, I guess I'd heard that what, last year at SSM at least? So are they out there now and how much are they going for? I think they're just pure fun myself. I did toy with the thought of weathering it up, like a "real warbird model" and even maybe some kind of details? But at least on this first effort I think the 'fun factor' alone is good enough! I was happy that "old" kit decals worked just fine.

Thanks for your kind words!

I found these eggplanes in Hong Kong last Sunday.

I can get a bag of 6 for about $ 350.00 Hong Kong Dollars.
Seperate kits were $50.00 HKDollars

The current conversion is 1 US Dollar = 7.50 Hong Kong Dollars.

I found two such bags for a total of 12 different kits.

I'll be back in H-K at the end of the month...who wants some ?
I'd be glad to buy and ship...just gotta re-emburse me via Paypal.

PM if interested.

I love watching a Master work.


Glorious.


I can tell right off that that accursed Tamiya kit is a bit off - putting it mildly - in several respects.

Don-san, thank you SO MUCH for showing this ground-bound quadriped how it's done!

Cat, Al, Mech,

Thanks gents!

Modelnutz,
Thanks for the FYI for anyone wanting some!


Cat-San,
Yes, the infamous Tamiya struggle with scale fidelity? Sorry to be the one to show you such glaring errors in overall shape and form but perhaps with some Aves or Milliput you can still salvage the work you've put into your project? That's why I struggled to knock this one out quickly so that it might not be too late for you. Afterall, what are friends for!

dbhs,
Thank you very much!

And it seems that if one eggplane is fun then two must be more better!

This one actually has a "better" egg shape IMHO and it's a big brother to the A6E Intruder I did a lil while ago!



I even have a Navy WWII Avenger ready for decals to follow these.
