HASEGAWA scale model in 1/72 scale kit review and modelling report 

 .... continued from page 2.....

The first 1/72 kit was issued by Hasegawa in the seventies as a A-37A/B. It was at that time the only kit, basic but OK. It was issued in various boxes and different decals over the years.

with Minicraft label as well

and another MINICRAFT box...

and in USAF box:

and a T-37C

The kit can not be either an A-37A or A-37B or T-37C with same parts in the box. In reality there are differences between these versions of the real aircraft.
But I did not bother, and made such a kit many years ago, almost straight out of the box. 

As I had spare parts and better left over decals from the ACADEMY kit, so made an South Korea ROKAF aircraft.
