This old kit has been through it so I wanted to try some techniques that were new to me. For the most part they worked. I would like to see Hasegawa re-release this kit, maybe adding more detailing in the flight deck. Overall this is a good kit and I had fun doing it. copyright Bobby McElroy.

This is one of Hasegawa’s older kits. I appropriated this kit at a local contest back in ’97. The kit is molded in green hard plastic. All of the panel lines and the rivets are raised. Unfortunately there is very little detail for the interior especially the flight deck. All of the transparencies were scratched badly and I was concerned whether I would be able to use them or not (In ’97). As always with Hasegawa the instructions were clear and precise. The decals were ok.
