I've got quite a bunch of the new series 1/72 scale Hasegawa Phantoms in
the stash. Lovely kits, certainly, and I can live with the fact that no
underwing stores other than fuel tanks are supplied (although I think
they're being very stingy), but what can one do if one wants to fit
anything other that fuel tanks on the centerline and outer wing stations?
All the pylons are integrated with the fuel tanks (as, I believe, they are
in reality), so even if I hack them off, the shape is going to be wrong.
Now, admittedly, I also have a bunch of Fujimi kits which do have the
pylons in question, so personally, I'll be fine. I'm still curious though,
as to the alternatives available to those without a ready supply of
Fujimis to rob.
