Not for air gaming of course, but it can provide my 1940 French a few strafing runs on the OpFor. It's a Hasegawa model.

Nice work thumbs up

I've always loved the lines of that aircraft…..

Agreed, great lines and nice work!

May I ask why, "Not for air gaming of course …"?

The "of course" part. Understood if you want it to only be a display model.

Gear up means she's flying. But the cockpit does seem to be empty.

Just some rambling curiosity. It's a beautiful model.

Nice one, love that plane. I have a 1/48th version in my office at work.

@Chris Wimbrow
The of course may be in excess, it's just that this scale is so big I imagine it must take a lot of space to have a game. I also have 1/300 models for CY6, but I guess it can be done in 1/72 too.
Yes, the cockpit is empty as no pilot was supplied in the box. In fact, the model is designed to be with the landing gear down so it was a lot of work with green stuff and a file to correct this.

I also have 1/300 models for CY6 …

Words words words blah blah blah …


Even at 1/300 this is quite frankly not my best work. But then, quite frankly, it is not the best model either. In both cases I might say good enough for wargaming purposes, but not for the display case.

(aka: Mk 1)

Well, my models are not the right time period since they are jets from the Korean War (blame my love of "The bridges of Toko Ri )

Anyways, here they are :

MiG 15s


F 86 Sabres


and my favorites, F9F Panthers
