Kit Review
The Hasegawa 'new tool' and Fujimi Tomcat kits were created in the late eighties during the renaissance of Japanese manufacturers, when these two manufactures decided to compete head to head on kit subject. These two kits were the height of that confrontation, and represented the best effort of the two companies at the time. Fujimi's was more 'feature-packed' but Hasegawa's tooling won out on accuracy. Fujimi's final effort to gain supremacy was the release of a complete range of F-4's, but again, Hasegawa surpassed on accuracy with its later toolings although they did not release Spey engined variants. Because of consistent commitment to accuracy, Hasegawa won the battle and is now the pre-eminent Japanese source of 1/72 aircraft kits, while Fujimi receded into the background and has not released a tooling of a new aircraft subject for a very long time.
Hasegawa irritatingly continues to market both its toolings of the Tomcat, each with its own vices and virtues. The later tooling is the definitive Tomcat, the most accurate of any kit. It includes separate flaps and slats, but it does not have swing swings, nor weapons. The older tool does, including 4 AIM-54's, but is less accurate, particularly in the canopy area, and has raised panel lines. Fujimi's tooling is not as accurate as Hasegawa's new tool in the rear nacelle and jet nozzle area, but it does come with 2 TF-30 jet engines and swing wings, as well as a radar antenna, separate flaps and slats, and weapons. The Academy, Italeri, and Revell new tool kits are less accurate than the 3 tools mentioned above.
