Wilfried Bogaerts Oh I hope Airfix will ever release this as a new mould like they did with the Nimrod and Valiant (or Revell). And I hope even more that Trumpeter stays away from this subject!
5. March 2012 at 18:46:54
Bill Gilman I agree on all counts! Airfix or Revell, but no TrumpyBoss!!

Donald Dickson II OK, so I started this on May first as part of a group build on the site International Scale Modeller. I have the Wolfpack decal set and seamless intakes.

This is an old and simple kit. It has its seam issues as you can see, but thats to be expected from a 30+ year old kit. The cockpit is non existent, but then you wont be able to see squat, so it would be wasted detail. I did a quick paint job on the pilots, not worrying too much about them as they will barely be seen.

As you can see, the exhausts are just holes. I used some brass tubing to make some rudimentary exhausts guts. Not fancy, but makes a world of difference IMO. Gotta do a little work with the bomb bay door areas and then on to painting. I have the colors in Tamiya acrylics and AK acrylics. I think I will use the AK as I have never used them before. Give them a go.

14. May 2018 at 19:42:06
Donald Dickson II Welcome gentlemen! :)

I got the underside painted last night. Have some more seam stuff to go back and do. And let me tell you, that is a LOT af area to paint with an airbrush. My finger was cramping by the time I was done. LOL

Can't help feeling slightly gypped about this one. "Slate Grey/Olive Green/Blue-Grey",indeed! Also only one choice of decals. Did get a Blue Steel but not the altered bomb bay to go with it.

Jamie Anderson Hi Arron nice work do you have a Valliant as well and is your Vulcan XH558 or a different airframe
23. June 2013 at 20:55:39
arron parry I still have the Vulcan it was completed as XM607 the first Vulcan to drop bombs in anger during the "Falklands War" op "Black Buck", its in dire need of TLC now, I have 2 more Vulcans in my stash, the Victor was originally finished as per kit, it later got a make over for "Desert Storm" to Teasin' Tina, unfortunately two house moves didn't do it any good but I have a replacement in my stash plus two Valiants :)
23. June 2013 at 21:09:18
Jamie Anderson cool I completed my v force last year my Vulcan and Valliant are from airfix and my victor is from revell
23. June 2013 at 21:26:12
arron parry , same here, except my replacement Victor is the Matchbox one which Revell took over later on and one of my Valiants is a Mach2 offering
23. June 2013 at 21:44:31

23. June 2013 at 22:00:13
arron parry Hi Jamie, unfortunately not mate, funds a bit tight, will be staying local so off to RAF Waddington shortly, so will get a two Vulcan fix, XM607 and XH558, though 607 is stuffed and mounted there.

Frank Spahr Making progress: Undersides masked, top grey sprayed, and upper camo masked. I used ModelAir Grey Primer for the undersides and Vallejo Blue Grey Pale for the uppers so far.

Luc B very nice Frank! I'll follow your progress
30. March 2013 at 11:16:11
Frank Spahr The purple stuff is Humbrol Maskol, but the demarcations aren´t as nice as with kabuki tape. I also found out that the decals, even when applied to a glossy surface, look matte - but luckily another glosscoat made them look all right. I was a bit relieved at that moment ...
30. March 2013 at 11:47:56
Frank Spahr She´s done, but I´m not quite satisfied with my work. I should have put weight into it in the first place, (overlooked it in the instructions), and I should have masked using kabuki tape. But there´s more of these kits out there, aren´t they?

Keith Goodman Operation Black Buck in the Falklands! Near the very end of their operational life RAF Vulcans flew halfway around the world and successfully cratered the runway at Port Stanley - denying Argentine Mirage III from staging there for the rest of the conflict. The Vulcans went out with a bang. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Black_Buck
19. February 2013 at 19:38:21
Greg Solomon As I recall, there were Handly Page Victor tankers involed as well, several stories on the internet about the efforts in pulling that OP off. I just build a Victor a few months ago. Unusual aircraft!
19. February 2013 at 20:04:19
Keith Goodman Exactly Greg, check out the refueling chart on the wikipedia link above. Each mission required 10 Victors to refuel each Vulcan SEVEN times just to make it TO the target! Moral = don't trifle with the RAF.

Burkhard D Hasegawa's Lightning is NOT a Frog mould. F and H may have done the molds at the same time and collaborated in some way (tbd), but the molds are obviously quite different, judged by a side-by-side comparison of the sprues. That is not to say that the Hasegawa mould is much better :-D
One of the unique selling points of Scalemates is to create awareness and prevent nasty surprises when opening a kit box ;)
8. June 2012 at 10:38:42
Bill Gilman Actually, Hasegawa acquired and re-worked the Frog mould. But that is indeed the origin of the Hasegawa kit. You can search and find many references to this. Here is one:

thunder-and-lightnings.co.uk/lightning/models.php

Revell re-boxed the Hasegawa kit - the reality is F,H, and R (and MB for that matter) all stink by today's standards. But they can be made into nice models with enough effort.

My point was was to say that ALL manufacturers re-box older kits, not just Airfix. I will agree that Airfix has re-boxed some older kits that should have been destroyed long ago, like the 1:72 Boulton Paul Defiant. But someone on Britmodeller just made a marvelous model from that kit. Amazing job, really.

Sometimes the older moulds are all you've got (like the Vulcan that started this thread). Boy, I would much rather have to fix and detail that kit than have to scratchbuild the whole thing! Yikes, that would be a project! :)

Cheers, Bill
8. June 2012 at 14:42:55
Burkhard D It's repeated on several sites, but that doesn't make it true. Compare the sprues.
ipmsdeutschland.de/FirstLook..tning/Rev_BAC_Lightning.html

Totally agree on anything else :)
8. June 2012 at 15:06:37
Bill Gilman Maybe the answer can be found here...

modelingmadness.com/scott/viet/gb/litef2.htm

...where it is stated "Frog reboxed the Hasegawa kit for their line before going belly up in 1976." This could be the source of the confusion, for if true, it means that it is possible to find identical sprues in Frog, Hasegawa, and Revell boxes (which is what happened to me, because I can assure all the sprues were identical!). The article you cited, using on-line translation (not the best) states:

"The late of sixties there was a set of cooperation between Hasegawa and Frog of the BAC lightning F.MK. 6. At that time, it was to create more affordable two separate forms." It seems the original Frog moulds went to Novo.

Even though the layout of the parts on the sprues are different, it is amazing how close the parts appear. Very good copying, er, cooperation, going on here! :)

This sentence, again from the bad translation, I don't understand at all:

"Now, Revell has released the own Matchbox Kit, which by the way is very problematic regarding the correctness, but has taken after the Frog reprint of 1999 on the Hasegawa Kit."

To my knowledge, Revell has never released the Matchbox Lightning, and Frog wasn't around in 1999 to "reprint" the Hasegawa kit. I think I'll need you to provide better translations for me!

Thanks for the link! Cheers, Bill
8. June 2012 at 15:58:50
Burkhard D "Revell, after the 1999 re-release of the [genuine] Frog kit, resorted to reboxing the Hasegawa kit"

So here's my hypothesis: In the beginning (196x) there were different molds by Frog and Hasegawa (similar, yes - but e.g. note the difference in wing and stabilizer incidence angle)
Revell repeatedly reboxed the initial Frog mold, including this 1996 release
B.A.C. Lightning F Mk.6 (Revell 04131, 1:72)
In parallel, Frog reboxed the Hasegawa kit in 1976
The same Hasegawa kit was then reboxed by Revell in 200x
BAC Lightning F.6 (Revell 04301, 1:72)

So you can indeed find three identical sets of sprues under Frog, Hasegawa, and Revell labels. But still, the original Frog mold and its reboxings by Revell are different.

1:72 B.A.C. Lightning F Mk.6 (Revell 04131)1:72 BAC Lightning F.6 (Revell 04301)
8. June 2012 at 16:40:34
John Bollig Bill, i think the reboxing was of the hasegawa kit. BTW, Still have the matchbox kit in all of its three color glory...
8. June 2012 at 16:42:38
Bill Gilman @Burkard - your hypothesis sounds good to me. But I see no significant difference in the wing and stabilizer incidence angles. Look at the rest - every panel line is identical, the breakdown of the parts is identical, etc. So I form my own hypothesis: Definite collaboration going on! Most likely sharing of the master from which the moulds are made. That fact the Frog and Hasegawa collaborated is well known.

The only real difference I see is the lack of the belly cannons and the associated blisters on the Frog.

So the Internet story of Hasegawa "correcting" the moulds probably refers to adding the belly cannons to the master, which were part of the F.6, but missing from the original Frog kit. Once this was done, they could have laid out the sprue arrangement any way they like, to suit their production equipment, etc.

Normally, I would study two different sets of sprues like these, and say "counterfeiting, with some rearrangement of the layout to avoid making it too obvious." This is seen today with some of the lesser-known brands from Asia. But I would like to think that Frog (British) and Hasegawa (Japanese) would not have done such a thing. I am a firm believer now, from studying these sprues, that there was a collaboration of some kind. The parts are much more than "similar."

And I am also relieved to know that my mind is still intact. I did indeed have three identical kits in boxes from three different companies! :)

Bill Gilman @John - I only have half of my Matchbox kit. I used the rest in my Trumpeter kitbash! :)
