Scale Aircraft Modelling cover
It seems to be Hasegawa week at SMN, but sometimes repetition is worth it - or at least it is if you're a long-time fan of those portly little plastic Egg Planes that used to decorate my shelves.
This time round, we get nine of them in ‘Limited Edition' form, with one new-tool addition in the form of an F-15 Eagle.
The very first Lancaster kit was produced by Airfix, way back in the late 1950s. Since then, the ‘Lanc' has been produced in a variety of scales and variations. Tamiya's 1:48 Dam Buster is one of the biggest and best, while this ASR Mk III from Hasegawa is one of the most interesting.
Designed for air-sea rescue duties after World War II, the ASR Mk III was unusual for its main load, a full-size lifeboat, filling the entire length of the modified bomb bay. When released, the lifeboat parachuted into the sea.

The old model kit you keep in your garage can have great value!
