Hasegawa September 2017 Releases

1/72 Sea Harrier FRS Mk.1 “Falklands” (2 kits) Limited Edition 
Argentina thought they could take the Falklands from the Brits. They could. Argentina thought they could keep the Falklands from the Brits. They absolutely could not. A large portion of that inability was due to the Sea Harrier. British warships sailed the length of the globe and smashed the Argentine forces in the area. Sea Harriers were responsible for interdicting aircraft the Argentines threw into the conflict-including those carrying the all-important Exocet Missile. This limited edition kit combo features two Harriers from HMS Hermes.

1/24 Toyota Celica Turbo 4WD 1993 Safari Rally Winner Limited Edition

The Mazda 767B made its motorsports debut on the track of the IMSA 24 Hours of Daytona in 1989. By the race’s end, the 767B scored a respectable fifth-place finish, encouraging Mazda to test the car at other tracks. At the 24 Hours of Le Mans competition, two 767Bs finished in seventh and ninth places. The following year wasn’t as promising for Mazda, as the 767B finished in 20th place.

1/24 BMW 320i Limited Edition

Active acceleration
When it was introduced in 1975, the BMW 320i instantly stood out from other cars. This popular luxury sedan could go from 0 to 60 mph (100 km/h) in 9.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 113 mph (182 km/h). The car’s impressive acceleration and top speed was thanks to the M10 straight-4 engine, the heart and soul of many BMW models from the early 1960s through the late 1980s. US models added a thermal reactor to reduce exhaust emissions. This limited edition kit features detailed parts.

During the 1992 Japanese Touring Car Championship, Morio Nitta and Keiichi Suzuki were determined to take Team Advan to the front of the finish line.

Fortunately for both drivers, their luck improved the following season, as they earned fifth- and sixth-place standings, respectively.

The car’s popularity resulted in the famous 944 Cup racing series.

1/72 SOC-3 Seagull Battleship Squad (2 kits) Limited Edition
The SOC Seagull very nearly missed its date with destiny. This reliable but aging biplane first flew in 1934 and was due to be rotated out in favor of the SO3C Seamew. However, this new plane was a poor replacement and the SOC-3 stayed in service until the end of the war, spotting the fall of shells and scouting for enemy ships. This limited edition kit combo features two models-one with a float and one with wheels plus decals for birds aboard the Colorado and New York.

1/72 F/A-18 Super Hornet “VFA-27 Royal Maces” Limited Edition
For a quick peek at what VFA-27 does day-to-day, check out “Shoot em if you got em” on YouTube. When they’re not making viral videos, they’re mostly carrying out missions in the Middle East-having flown missions in both operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. They transitioned to the F/A-18E Super Hornet in 2004 and the huge munitions capacity of that bird is fully ready to take on range targets or hostile ones. This limited edition kit features special 50th anniversary decal markings and detailed parts.

Designed by Hiro Fujimori, the Toyota 88C first appeared at the 1988 All Japan Sports Prototype Championship. During its debut, the 88C scored a pair of top-five placements, showing enough promise to enter that year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans Race. Two 88Cs participated, each equipped with a powerful Toyota 3S-GTM 2100 cc turbocharged inline-4 mid-mounted engine that produced 600 hp.

1/72 X-29 “Shin Kazama” Area-88 Limited Edition
Kaoru Shintani’s action-packed manga, Area-88, debuted in 1979. It was an instant hit, exciting readers with the exploits of Shin Kazama-a mercenary fighter pilot stationed at a top-secret air base called Area-88. X-29s are absolutely perfect for the intense action Shin Kazama gets into. The series, which was praised for its white-knuckle dogfighting action, inspired multiple animated films and a television series.

1/72 E-2C Hawkeye 2000 “VAW-115 Sayonara” Limited Edition
Crews from VAW-115 have flown the Hawkeye, in one version or another, since the Vietnam War. The long-ranged radar of this turboprop aircraft allows command and control of forces over broad swathes of ocean as well as detection well beyond the range of ship-based radar. Continuous improvements have seen the Hawkeye on carrier decks for longer than any other aircraft in the US inventory. This limited edition kit features detailed parts and a special “Sayonara Atsugi” decal.

1/72 F-2A “Ace Combat Kei Nagase” Limited Edition
Kei Nagase is a study in contrasts-a ferocious fighter and a pacifist, a dynamic pilot and a contemplative soul. Don’t let those contrasts fool you, though. Kei is as tough as they come. Her vehicle of choice, here, is the Mitsubishi F-2A. A derivative of the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the F-2A is as agile as it is lethal. Plus, much like Kei herself, the F-2 is always on the hunt. It’s equipped with an active electronically-scanned array radar that probes the cloud for enemies. This limited edition kit features Ace Combat Infinity and Assault Horizon decals for pilot Kei Nagase.

1/48 Nakajima C6N1-S Night Fighter Saiun (Myrt) Limited Edition
