    Thanks Dan and Romel. Appreciate the comments
  2. Superb model. Excellent finish. Great choice of decals too.

    In the recent workbench, there is an image of the new phantom kit on which there is a helicopter - what looks like a HAS UH 5 (I might be wrong) in the background. Just saying - it might be a hint to one of there future releases.

    Love this kit. Will build mine sometime next year. Very nicely done. 1/48 is becoming more and more popular for AFV thanks to Tamiya, and modellers like yourself. Well done mate.

    This is my completed Italeri 1/72 F-15 E. This was built for the F-15 STGB 2017. Build Summary The kit was a speed build - done in about 10 days which is much faster then I usually build, so I might have missed a few details. I have built it OOB with some spare PE seat belts. I could have spent more time on the canopy and cockpit in hindsight. I have kept weathering to a bare minimum, as I like my aircraft clean. The kit required a lot of filler where the wings met the fuselage, all the detail there also had to be re scribed. As always I am never concerned with historical accuracy or rivet counting. I am concerned with the build and paint job, which I am happy with at the moment. I hope you all take the time to watch the final reveal video and also the build slideshow, as these do take considerable time and effort to put together.

    The small parts have all been done now. Almost all sub assemblies have been painted. The only thing remaining is the main canopy. The seats done up. I used spare PE Seat belts Most of the canopy parts done up. The main canopy is still to be painted. All landing gear parts Weapons All ready to assemble Here we go And here it is with an unpainted canopy on. I will work on the canopy next. Hopefully be able to matte coat it tomorrow or later tonight. If all goes well it should be complete on deadline day.

    5 hours of decaling All decals done. Next I will touch up some areas and gloss coat it. I will then work on the canopy and finish weapons.

    Next update. The panel lines were done up using a Black Copic Multiliner Pen - 0.03mm tip. I also used Vallejo Grey Wash on the grills The panel lines on the metal parts were done using a Grey Multiliner Pen with a 0.05mm tip. This was then followed by a gloss coat using Pledge Floor Care Decals will be next. The weapons are also being worked on, but I havnt got any photos of them yet. Hopefully get it all sorted before deadline day. As always all comments welcome.

    Next update. A lot of sanding was conducted and then the panel lines were rescribed using hard edge tape and tamiya rescriber aling with a pin vice and some scribing templates. The exhausts were then painted with Tamiya XF 16 Aluminium enamel and a touch of black paint. These were then masked and the kit painted with Humbrol 140. The seam line between the wings and fuselage is gone. Very happy with that. Good to see all that filling and sanding really paid off. Also the rescribing came through as well. Still a lot of work to do. Details to be painted on. Weapons, Panel lines, landing gear, decals, gloss coat and matte coat. Hopefully get it done before deadline day.
