Hasegawa 1/32 TA-4J Aggressor

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This was supposed to be a quick build, which it basically was.  I started putting things together and before I knew it, it was practically done.  I added some seatbelts in the cockpit and some brake lines and such on the landing gear.  I also took the step out of the the leading edge slat area (the red area) where the top of the wing transitions to the slat well.  The paint scheme came from the Classic Air Frames 1/48 kit.  Paints used were Vallejo and Model Master. I resized the CA decal sheet from the kit and printed it on my computer. Overall they came out pretty good.  I like the color scheme with the three blues/grays.

This kit is ancient but it fit great.  The detail is accurate and there aren't a million pieces.  What's not to like?

Any comments always welcome.

Bill

That's a great looking Aggressor! The detailing you added, though limited, seems to have hit the needed spots too. Congrats, and thanks for sharing!

William,

Awesome build. Love this scheme. What did you use on the front strut to simulate the silver colors?

Thanks

Christopher

Thank you guys.

This was a fun model to build.  I didn't like the decal options in the kit though.  I couldn't find any on line either.  So I made my own.

Gil,

The seat belts helped the cockpit a lot.  I forgot to get a descent shot of them though.  There were to seated figures that came in the kit that were really nice.  I almost used them but i am going to save them for another build.  The brake lines on the main gear really helped there too. 

Christopher,

I used bare metal foil cut to size and then wrapped it around the strut.  I like how it looks with so much oleo showing.

Bill
