Kit Reviews
Hasegawa
The Hasegawa tooling can only be made as an A-37 even though some of their boxes are labelled as 'T-37'. The A-37 and T-37 are quite different in reality: the T-37 has a slightly more slender underfuselage, the air intakes use a different method to control boundary layer separation, and the main undercarriage doors are different, as are the jet nozzles. The only concession Hasegawa makes to the T-37 are an option for faired-off wingtips sans wingtip tanks. To make a T-37 would actually require modification of all the areas mentioned.

Both the Academy and Hasegawa toolings make up into credible renditions of the A-37, with the Academy tooling being slightly more crisp and offering slightly beefier underfuselage contours than Hasegawa. The Hasegawa canopy is slightly more accurate in shape.
