SIKORSKY SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 BUILD AND PAINTING TO FINISH

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK AIRCRAFT JAPAN

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 MAKING ​I decided to build a plastic model of a helicopter for the first time in quite a while. ​What I chose this time was Seaking of Hasegawa. ​I haven’t decided yet, but I think it will be made the JMSDF helicopter. ​Is this kit a special version for replacing decals? ​It also includes the decals of the helicopters that carried out the return mission of the Apollo spacecraft. ​It seems that a different kit of the same scale has been released from Hasegawa to make a JMSDF plane. ​That model number is PT2, so it may be quite old.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 MAKING ​It’s been a long time since I’ve had a helicopter plastic model, and it’s been a while since I’ve had the JGSDF Apache, so I don’t really know what to do. ​​This kit has a lot of work other than sticking the parts together, such as shaving various parts, filling holes, and cleaning the surface. ​It’s pretty difficult. ​The number of parts may be larger than the other 1/48 scales.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 MAKING These are a pilot seat and a seat belt. ​At this stage, I don’t know how the parts are assembled, so I’m very worried if the parts fit properly.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 MAKING​There are also many switches on the cockpit panel and on the upper and side of the cockpit seat. ​I’m glad that decals are prepared for them.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 MAKING ​This kit has a pretty big cockpit window, so we can see inside well. ​But I can’t make it​ detailed extra parts.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 MAKING ​I felt like I knew the shape of the seaking body, but I didn’t know the details until I picked up the parts. ​After I build these parts, I can see the shape of the fuselage more.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 MAKING​For me, not only masking but also fitting the helicopter window is a difficult task. ​I usually don’t mind the dirt of the parts because it’s an AFV modeling, so I care about these parts, ​polishing it with a compound.

At the end of the assembly, there are more protrusions than I expected, so it is hard to handle. I should make it as strong as possible.

​The rotor can be folded. ​My personal preference is here.

​The painting process has begun.

​Masking tapes are consumed in large quantities.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 PAINTING Wow, it’s hard to paint so much. ​It’s big, so it’s pleasant to blow airbrush.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 PAINTING ​Apparently, this kit was released in 2010. ​I think it’s a decal replacement kit. ​There were no particular decal problems with Hasegawa kits. ​It is good that there is no yellowing or deterioration.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 PAINTING​I pasted almost the decal first because I wanted a change. ​As an image before making it, I thought the painting would be completed if I painted it in white, but there are quite fine details with different colors. ​To be honest, it is quite hard. ​I have almost never made a kit of Helicopter, so it might just be a little awkward.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK ​Hasegawa’s Seaking is completed. ​It is a kit of Sikorsky HSS-2A. ​Other HSS-2B helicopters of this type have been deployed since then, ​it is a type with enhanced anti-submarine detection capability.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK ​I wonder how many years have passed since I made a white body plastic model. ​I feel pretty good.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK Because it was designed as a carrier-based aircraft, the main rotor and tail can be folded. ​This time, all blades were unfolded.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK ​It was originally called “HSS-2A” and came to be called “SH-3D” when the US Navy revised its naming. ​At the time of its adoption, the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force continued to use the term “HSS-2A”.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK ​In Hasegawa, it appears that the HSS-2B was released earlier and later released as a kit for the HSS-2A, including new parts for a small sponson and a short horizontal stabilizer in the kit. ​No wonder a lot of parts were no longer needed.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK ​In the United States, it started operation in 1961, and the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force has been operating it since 1964. In ​Japan, it retired its antisubmarine patrol aircraft in 2003, and the aircraft used for other purposes also retired in 2008. ​It was mainly used for anti-submarine operations, but it was also used for various other purposes such as an anti-ship attack, search and rescue, and troop transport. ​In Japan, the body of the Antarctic observation mission and the rescue plane have different coloring and it is interesting.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK When I just applied the color, it gave me a somewhat flat impression, but I think the high-quality decal enhanced the precision.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK There are some windows so you can see inside. ​​There is nothing special inside, so I painted the windows with smoke. ​But it’s almost dark and I can’t see anything.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK ​The marking indicates the number “71” of the aircraft belonging to the JMSDF 121 Flying Squadron Tateyama Base in Chiba.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK ​For tank models, the lower part is painted roughly, but for airplanes and helicopters, it is painted seriously like this.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK ​If there is no rotor, it is long and thin and a little round, so it looks like a blowfish.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK ​Decorating this helicopter the main rotor expanding really takes up space. ​If you want to put it in a box, it needs to be quite a large box. ​If it’s a small helicopter with 2 blades, there might be a way to fit it compactly in the lateral direction, but this HSS-2A Seaking has 5 blades and consumes space.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK ​There is a detailed painting that I can’t notice just by looking at the instruction. ​It was hard because the plane was big and there were many processes.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK ​I think it is more realistic to bend the main rotor blade a little when it is parked. ​I’m not sure what angle is good. ​I made it cool somehow, but it might be too low. ​Let’s be a little more careful next time.

SH-3D/HSS-2A SEAKING JMSDF HASEGAWA 1/48 FINISHED WORK​I wanted to finish it a little more neatly. This kit needs a high level, I had to make it carefully. ​Lightly washed to reveal details that are hard to see in pure white or gray. ​A little dirt is called a weathering effect. Let’s assume that it is a natural condition of the body.
