Coming soon from Hasegawa

Here are two model kits about to hit the shelves on 2014. The 1/72 Mitsubishi F-2A Air Combat 2013 (2 kits) Limited Edition and 1/200 ANA B747-400D Limited Edition.

Sweeping the skies of Sukhois

The Mitsubishi ® F-2A is an improved F-16. These multi-role fighters have significant air-to-air, air-to-ground and air-to-sea capabilities, making them ideal for the JASDF. High top speeds give them nearly as much performance as contemporary dedicated air superiority fighters. Its multi-role ability allows it to act as a force multiplier for ground, air and sea forces. Just under 100 were jointly produced by the US and Japan and they are still the main fighter of the JASDF.

Decal Options:

J.A.S.D.F. 3rd AW 3rd SQ Code: 557 Misawa A.B.
J.A.S.D.F. 3rd AW 8th SQ Code: 558 Misawa A.B.

For Boeing, bigger is better

Make no mistake, all jetliners are big but the Boeing 747-400D is truly gargantuan. This leviathan of the skies is capable of carrying 660 passengers on flights of over 8,000 miles (14,000 km). Though that range is possible, All Nippon Airways uses this model for much shorter trips along high density domestic routes. In that configuration, the wingtip extensions commonly found on 747s are removed to cut costs. Build one of the 19 Boeing leviathans that have been delivered to ANA.
