Hasegawa Ma.K Falke Raider


This is the 1:20 Hasegawa Falke Raider Kit.

I built this a while back and whilst an expensive, all plastic so feels a lot more exoensive, its  agreat kit.

I bought it as a way of trying out a few weathering techniques with Ammo Scratching and weathering powders and techniques.

All paints are Vallejo other than the metallics which are Alclad.  The scheme is wholly made up, another benefit of these kits as there is no such thing as right 🙂

I really enjoyed building this but as usual the painting was my favourite part of the whole thing.

The base is custom, a piece of scrap wood I had flying around painted and stained black with a piece of clear plastic rod to give it that look of flying.

I hope you like and as usual any comments are greatly appreciated.  Until next time…

Welcome One and All.

Hello Everyone.
Welcome to my blog.  Why did I do this?  Lord knows.

All I can say is that it’ll be all about my exploits with Scale Modelling, Flying and General Geek stuff.

I muddle around with all sorts of plastic modelling in most scales but unless its something huge that asks for a smaller scale I don’t usually go below 1/72.  My favourite scale for most models is 1/32nd for Aircraft and Sci-Fi, 1/35 for Armour and large scale for figures.

Flying-wise I have a share in an EV97 Eurostar.  Its a 3 axis Microlight which means it looks and acts like a “real” aircraft but is limited to 450KG and only has two seats.  Suits me though.

As far as geek stuff well it’ll be anything from CNC (I have a Shapeoko 2), Arduino, Netduino, Raspberry PI or anything else that takes my fancy including dabbling in PC’s and some very limited home automation/security stuff.

So, I hope you enjoy my rants and raves here.
