PostSubject: Hasegawa 1/48 Hs129 B2 variant- Complete   Thu Feb 14, 2013 3:39 pm

While doing my F4 J which was annoying me I pulled this one out and committed to it



I'm doing a variant that was fitted with the 37mm cannon






I need to check what makings this aircraft had but like the blue spinner spirals and blue letters so may go with those.

Using Master Model barrels, and I have started the engine, the Verlinden set also has all control surfaces and flaps so will be cutting the kit ones off and posing the resin replacements.


not forgetting the pit area


Where I'm at - very early days!

As you know I hate non rotating props with a passion - the resin set gives a solid engine without prop shaft holes.

I devised a way to make this rotate, first glued the engine front on for a drilling guide, drilled through so the prop shaft fitted in, then drilled back the opposite side with a larger drill bit to accommodate Hasegawa's poly cap.


you can see the two different hole diameters


To keep the poly cap from moving away from the prop shaft i cut a piece of round scrap spue and fitted it into the larger hole behind the poly cap. With these in place, glued the back plate on, this allows me to remove and replace the prop at any time, the poly cap holds the prop in and spins very free.





also have these for the kit



So we follow the instructions on the engine - part 11 to 14 - part 5 to part 11 - good thing I used blu tack for part 5 !



if you do this, P5 to P 11, when you go to attach the exhaust ring - the exhaust tubes that fit onto the cylinders do not
reach.

you can see where the 3 red dots are, where they join to the cylinders corectly,

so does P5 go on after?


Apparently not......  confused


P 5 will not fit inside P 18 attached to P 11 nor will it reach P 11 from the inside.



well at least all the pushrods and curved exhaust piping is done




Thanks to a friend on another forum who supplied me with brilliant ref pics and diagrams I fixed the engine mounting to look respectable, proggry so far cut flaps elevators and radio box and dry fitted the parts.

I may just use the kit rudder posed to one side, it's easily scored to do this, the resin part isn't much better

one very annoying thing with the Verlinden set is the elevators are identical with the actuators the same way up so you have one on top and one one the bottom.









I think this bird will look pretty bitchin' with that 37 mm cannon poking out in front!

Here's an update on this one - Pe parts for the pit are terrible, fit is almost impossible, Iv'e used a mix of Pe and resin parts to get to here.

Resin seat/armor plate, lots of cutting,filing to get it to here.
Broke the damned thing twice at the back, when fitted the fuse closes over it so it can't be seen

Whatever part you add, each one presents another fit prob.

As it is now, the pit fits in, and the fuse closes up with a lot of squeezing together - just.







Quickboost radio box in,


Used MM burnt iron non buffing paint on the exhaust ring, (pic is a bit dark) will play around with the finish next time I work on it.



made a simple mount for the 37mm, the pod isn't correct but will do, good thing is the Mk103 cannon support ring fits perfect around the barrel and looks quite good fitted.




just the one update pic, got the fuselage and wings on tonight, nice fit there gaps non existent,
had to add a helper piece of scrap to support the bottom wing to rear fuse fit because of the cut off kit flaps,
all worked nice.

Cut off the rudder to use the resin one =- alas it is too short and leaves a huge gap at the bottom
of it - will use the kit one which isn't all that different.

I wanted to get it to this point so it didn't bug me while I start doing some building of the P-61 !!

Another fine build thread Phil. The Henschel 129 is probably my fave German twin, it just looks so modern for the time. Once again I can see this kit will be done justice...nice going.

Thanks Geoff, I'm still after the elusive B3 with 75mm, that brass barrel I have is just begging to go in one!
If I do get one I intend to do it wheels up with prop blurs doing a low pass over the other ''Tank Buster'' aircraft on the dio board.

Phil - the B3 rang a bell... thought I saw one the other day somewhere.
www.kingkit.co.uk. Search Esci - 1/48th, and they have 2 in stock @ 9.99GBP
Its the HS 129 kit that came with B1,B2 & B3 variants

So nice to work with decent plastic and parts that don't snap when you look at them..........
nacelles on, lovely fit - naturally! and finished off the belts, a bit more Pe to go on around the seat but will fit later as it is at the top and would get mashed when covered up in the paint stage


The 37mm variant had the two Mg's removed to save weight, so I scratched two covers for the disused gun troughs

That Master Model brass barrel is so nice - fits lovely into the pod - a ring bracket is also to be fitted
]



Silver base coat on, yellow nose/wingtips/tailband done, drying then masking for the splinter camo very soon

I'll let the paint harden fully before masking it for round two.

All done!




I planned to leave the canopy open but the window dive angle decal looked much better with it closed


the resin gunsight is nicely done, used the kit glass on it


Quickboost radio set




















The Tankbusters - home base






Painted with Model Master enamels (RLM 65 % 04) Gunze Acrylics (RLM 04 70 & 71) various Humbrol enamels for detailing.
Decals were a mix of Superscale Hasegawa, and Eduard Swastika's

And,

from a friend who found this for sale in Japan!


This one will be ''wheels up'' doing a low pass over the Tankbusters - that's my plan !
