Hasegawa 60137 F-2 Eggplane

 

F-2

By: Hasegawa

Scale: N/A

Item no: 60137 Price: £9.99

Web: www.amerang.co.uk

With its Eggplane series, Hasegawa has definitely embraced the ‘fun’ element of modelling, as these are a cross between ‘super-deformed’ anime characters and aircraft caricatures. However, they are also a great way to encourage new/younger modellers; the kits are simple to assemble, and with many produced in coloured styrene, there’s no need to paint them. With just 18 parts, the F-2 Eggplane is one of the least complex. It’s unsurprisingly based on the F-16 offering in this series, and shares the same main runners, with two new tail components provided separately. Detail is minimal, but the shape captures the distinctive ‘shark-mouth’ air intake and blended wing design. Overall, this will be an entertaining and easy build, with the option to add as much refinement as one desires, and will look eye-catching on any display. Three two-tone blue Japanese Air Self-Defense Force schemes are supplied:

  • 03-8505/505, 3rd Squadron, 3rd AW, Misawa AB
  • 43-8524/524, 8th Squadron, 3rd AW, Misawa AB
  • 43-8530/530, 6th Squadron, 8th AW, Tsuiki AB
