I was looking through GMW`s website the other day and stumbled across PRE-ORDER marked F-16`s from Hasegawa - the full range of Vipers that used to be listed in the catalogue as recently as 2002!

Amongst them was:
1/48 Hasegawa HSG06101 F-16 Plus Fighting Falcon $16.45
1/48 Hasegawa HSG06102 Thunderbird F-16A $17.95
1/48 Hasegawa HSG06103 F-16C Fighting Falcon $16.50
1/48 Hasegawa HSG06104 F-16C (Block 30) $29.95
1/48 Hasegawa HSG06105 F-16B Plus Fighting Falcon $16.45
1/48 Hasegawa HSG06106 F-16D FF $16.45
1/48 Hasegawa HSG06107 F-16N Top Gun $17.95
1/48 Hasegawa HSG06108 F-16C Night Falcon $17.95
1/48 Hasegawa HSG06110 F-16C/J (Block 50) Fighting Falcon $16.45

So yes, we are finally looking at some decent priced B- and D-Vipers without beeing ripped off on Ebay and other placed 8)
Whats more is that I sent a question to GMW if this was true, and they confirmed this to be correct !! :lol:

All I`m waiting for now is to learn WHEN we can expect these :wink:

Anybody else who can verify this aswell :twisted:

Whoa whoa whoa....don't start celebrating yet. GMW's inventory control is atrocious. I wouldn't put any weight on this at all. Not yet. Id' wait to get word from Hase. In fact that whole list smakcs of someone selling theor collection to GMW and they're offing it.

Good point Habu - didn`t consider that one :wink: - guess I got a little exited about finally finding something we all have been wanting for long.
Guess the jokes on me if this turns out sour, but I`ll live 8)

Still there is no mention of limited availabillity, so we`ll just have to wait and see :)

Not only that, but some of those kits are truly OOP, and the CJ kit, #6110 is now kit Pt32. Plus the prices just seem unebelievably low. If this turns out to be true, then I bet it is someone's collection, and I'm betting there won't be too many available so you gotta move fast. But man, I'm right with you, I'm eagerly awaiting a rerelease of the two seater. But most likely, it'll be a DJ kit...in fact I hope it's a DJ kit, so you have the extra options.

Latest update:

GMW just pulled my leg, the order was cancelled not too long ago - as expected but was still hoping :roll:

Good news and best comfort is that Hasegawa will atleast release a TF-104G later this year, and this is no hoax :D

This the third time GM has listed the F-16D or B (Since being discontinued) for preorder, but it never happens.

Just glad I have my stash to work from

I was just on Spruebros. web page and they have a link on to pre-order the Hase F-16B and F-16D in 1/48th scale. Kits are sched to be released in May. See it was just as I predicted. As soon as I finally gave up hope that Hase. would rerelease the kit and I paid too much for one on Ebay, Hase. goes and announces that they will rerelease the kit.

Yes yes...looks like it's officially official. Sprue Bros. Dragon USA, and even HLJ now all confirm they will be rereleased. Those sources I trust, not GMW. But w00t! They're coming back! The ony bad thing...the D model is the older boxing, not the DJ.

Well they still fooled ya, the only kits being rereleased thus far are the family models. Those other ones they listed aren't....yet anyway.

Yeah, Habu, I know - but it`s the B- and D-model that everyone seeks, so those are the only ones that matters 8)

Is there a suggestion for a basically straight out of the box kit for a Block 40 C and or D model? I'm not the best at putting these together, I'm usually happy with my results, but they surely aren't or show...but I also know my limitations, and I couldn't put all these "extra" mods to a model to make them look like some of you guys can do. I'm anxiously awaiting the release of the 31st FW decal sheet from AFTERBURNERDECALS considering I'll have my name on one of them

Yes, but you'll need two kits to do a Block 40D, unless you can find the Hasegawa F-16DJ kit which are rare and go for a lot on Ebay.

The standard Hasegawa F-16C/D kits do not have the MCID intake, Block 50 wheels, bulged gear doors, LAU-129 rails, LEF RWR antennas, required for the late blocks.

If you have the standard Hasegawa F-16D, you can get the F-16CJ kit and use block 50 parts, by simple "plug & play" to get a block 40.

If you want to build a Block 40 F-16C, use the F-16CJ kit (There was a Block F-16CG kit, but it's OOP-HTF), but you'll need to add the LANTIRN/NAV Pods and related ordnance.

Also note that none of the Hasegawa F-16 kits come with the upper fuselage beef up plating, but those can be had from Afterburner Decals, or the vinly stick-ons (Not to found of them myself) from Orion Models.

Hei folks !

Anyone know what happened to the re-release of the B- and D-model Vipers from Hasegawa ??

Suddenly my preorder at Hobby Link Japan is now listed for future release instead of April release ??

HLJ does that from time to time, I wouldn't worry. The rerelease is still scheduled for next month.

How about HLJ's "1200/1300 Yen" A-7E's & MIG-39's they posted last Saturday. I ordered two of each and they are acutally honoring the miss marked prices.

I don't recall, as when I called Curt that night, he told me about it. I was in the control room at work, at the time and snuck in a quick order before I went back out onto the FLight Line. I checked the HLJ site the next morning and they had corrected the prices.

I did not have time to check for other price miss-marks, else I would of for sure looked and passed the word on to FM.

To bad Sorry-A$$ Great Models does not honor the same!

What do you mean not the Misawas? Both V10 and PT32 have the exact same markings, Shaw and Misawa. Are you getting one of the other limited boxings?

The limited boxings are just that, limited and hard to find. Both kits, V10 and PT32 ave the exact same boxart, save that PT32 shows a Misawa jet, and V10 shows a Shaw jet. Same exact plastic and decals in the box. PT32 is probably what you're getting.

Nice Work Done.That rc jet model really shows the amount of time spent on making and turned this to be a beautiful model. That is closer to the real thing than any of the other models .
