  1. Great stuff. Is the first one from the Warren ? I need to get home and over for a day ! All the FB pages show some great flying - there was some Aviano F16s there a few weeks back ….
  2. Different rumours -either a batch of contaminated paint, or a replacement as the SEA Brown was running low stock wise … there’s a few ref pics of some Lakenheath airframes around …
  3. So I did the F-15E during the 50th anniversary F-15 STGB... ref pics Next - not sure, I have a couple of RAF Lightning II's, in `1/72 and 1/48...plus the Tamiya F-35A is out....with LN markings....
  4. Kit: 1/48 Academy/Model Hobby Kits Boeing F-15E 'Seymour Johnson' Subject: Boeing F-15E 97-0219 - 492nd FS, 48th FW, RAF Lakenheath - wearing the Heritage Scheme applied in June 2019 to honor the wings part in the D Day Landings of 1944 - in tribute to P-47 Thunderbolt 'Nellie B' Details: Modelled as per reference pics from interweb - towards the end of its time in the scheme Misc: Mr Paint paints, Mr Color paints, Vallejo paints, Floreys Dark Dirt Wash, Tamiya Panel Line accenter Furball 48-071 Heritage Eagles Decal set, scratch built AIM 9 TACTS pod Build Thread:
  5. Pushing on with a week left, starting to get the finishing touches.... Got the pod built and painted - will do for Gov work! with decals on and sealed in, weathering done, time for the flat cote... used some burnt umber oils and mix, along with Tamiya panel line accenter and some dark dirt floreys wash...aim to get it as it was at the end of the time wearing the scheme using ref pics... Note the chipping away from the A2A refuelling hatch (or attempt of!) Some muck on the wings/invasion stripes and along the upper fuselage Muck and dirt underneath, especially around the metal areas... Some useful ref pics from YouTube Used Mr Color GX114 Flat First Undercarriage for a long long long long time.....antennas and pitots too Could not find the second crew member - that said I looked through my build pics and can only see 1 - so maybe I have one on the sprue and had to sort the other - so I have 1 now primed ready to paint...the glass for the Sniper pod was missing and my Micro Klear had solidified so am waiting on a new pot to try to create the glazed part before adding the pod... Canopy onto the rail Thats it for now....hope to get in the gallery early next week.
  6. I’m hoping to do an area search tomorrow - likely he’s at s bar somewhere knowing what the airforce is like at the weekend …if you ever want to pass your pilots on let me know as I like to build with them - happy to cover the postage costs !
  7. Great build - interesting that there is the same nose to fuselage issues as I’ve experienced with the Academy builds II completed - everyone thought the GWC Eagles would be better engineered - is the Revell a better build @DaveJL? Having watched the deployment videos and coming from the village I do think you’ve captured the on tour Mudhen - great stuff!
  8. Pushing on chopped up some bits for the TACTS pod I seem to be missing a pilot - only one in my little container for small parts … subtle colour change on the port missile rails which are painted Mod Eagle Gray on this reference -you can see the Gunship grey on the Stbd side to contrast …likely a swap over from the 493rd FS C models that were at Lakenheath at the time - sadly now departed Last bits to do, undercarriage, antennas and the inert missiles. Will likely get the gloss cote on to seal the decals in first, put some Tamiya panel line accent in and look at some weathering to depict the aircraft at the end of its time in the scheme.
  9. Thanks - yes I use the same to dirty things up and Tamiya panel line accentor for the lines
