  1. Sorry to disappoint both the wife and you, but this box is not the kit I've built, it is an older mold with raised panel lines. Still it will come out fine I'm sure!
  2. Looks like a new tooling to me. Sprues from the Trump kit below:
  3. Thanks, glad to see my Tomcat pop up again. The best modern options in 1/72 seem to be the Fine Molds A and the just released GWH D. But I'd say the Hasegawa kit is still a decent pick, especially the cheap Atlantic Fleet boxes.
  4. Similar price point to the recent Hasegawa and Finemolds releases, doesn't seem all that crazy to me. The sprues seem to include a Lantirn, no bombs though.
  5. Those pit-road photos look very promising. However, HK shops are already shipping the kit.
  6. Thanks for the kind comments. I strived to equal the myriad of better 1/72 Eagles that do exist, and while I'm happy with the result, I still have a long way to go. As usual, the next one will be better
  7. Ah, thank you Rod! Hello from France to Fresno people then Sometimes I forget about the power of internets.
  8. Haha I see, mine was box 12506 with Academy decals. Not the first time I failed at using Academy's sheets, so I hoped you had some kind of secret recipe
  9. I love what you did with that clean mod eagle scheme! Just finished this kit myself, I must say I didn't like the journey building it. How did you deal with the Academy decals? I only used a few of those and I just couldn't manage to apply them in a satisfying manner.
  10. Thank you! Those KA models exhausts are really impressive bits of 3D printed plastic, absolutely worth the steep price. They aren't designed for this kit though, so I had to cheat a little and ended up with an ugly seam line, which thankfully doesn't distract from the detail too much.
  11. Ah, a build I'll follow I agree with you on the nose, it seems odd. I built an Italeri two seaters a couple years ago and the nose on that one seems closer to the real deal, even though the kit is really basic.
  12. Hello there. Here is my rendition of the Academy old mold kit. Build wasn't always fun, I've mainly learned how frustrating photoetch can get. Still, I'm eager to start building more recent kits of the Eagle. F-15c MSIP II boxing, Two Bobs decals, Hataka and AK Xtreme Metal colors, Eduard PE, KA Models exhausts, Revell pilot. Thank you for looking!
  13. Followed your build closely and the result is just exquisite. Can't wait to see the rest of them
