  1. Thanks for your comments. @MsModeller I thought about it some time to use a photo or a painting as backdrop and came to the same conclusion, that the painting is the better contrast. The painting canvas is wrapped around a 18mm wooden panel. The panel holds the two acryl rods very good and the 1/72 model kit is only a minor load. To mount it on the wall, you can use a shelf or a picture frame mounting.
  2. Superb work. Thanks for sharing.
  3. Attention! The DXM instructions aren't 100% correct compared to the real plane. I recognized this to late, my fault. The "wings" must be closer to the center and some stencils are different or missing. So be careful and check your references if you want it "perfect". @all Thanks again for your nice comments.
  4. Hello, for the "acryl mounted inflight model" lovers and all the others too, i want to share these pictures of my tiger meet legacy hornet. It´s the 1/72 kit from Academy with decals from Syhart. Finished this in february 2021. Not the best pictures but here they are. First the kit only: The kit is mounted on a ("do it yourself") painted picture of some mountains, inspired by the Axalp events of the swiss air force. 06 07 08 14 some closeup impressions: 09 10 11 12 13 15 Flickr Link: https://www.flickr.com/gp/193226342@N06/587F3E have a nice day.

  5. Thank you for the likes and comments, much appreciate. @SAT69 These are 6mm acrylic rods. You can find them f.e. on ebay, amazon... I bought mine from amazon and cut them with a fine saw (same for resin) to 25cm each. To bend, you need some heat from hairdryer, hot water or something like this. I heat them with an oven to 160°-180° celsius and bend both around a cup to the same shape. The rods are not fixed yet, so you can simply change the position and angle of the jet. ps: sorry for the bad english grammar
  6. Hello modellers, i finally finished this bird. The kit ist the Great Wall Hobby F-15E with Aires ACES II ejection seats and PJ production pilots. Further addons used are an Eduard Sniper ATP, AIM-120 training missile and a modified ACMI pod from Hasegawa. But the real highlight is the awesome DXM decal sheet, it isn't perfect but very very good.

    F-15 wheel hubs

    During my research for my f-15 projects i found 3 known types of wheel hubs for the main gear: F-15A/B: https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Air-Force/McDonnell-Douglas-F-15A-Eagle/6115941 F-15C/J: https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Air-Force/McDonnell-Douglas-F-15C-Eagle/6367819 F-15E/I/K: https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Air-Force/McDonnell-Douglas-F-15E-Strike-Eagle/6382577 All wheel hubs can be found in different scales on the aftermarket. But there seems to be a new player in town. On actual photos of the last years some F-15E are fitted with a new hub: https://www.airliners.net/photo/USA-Air-Force/McDonnell-Douglas-F-15E-Strike-Eagle/6400727 I found them on different aircrafts and different locations. The new F-15EX ist also fitted with the "new" ones. https://aerobuzz.de/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Boeing-F-15EX-Eagle-II-Roll-out-Eglin-AFB-210407-F-OC707-0206-Ko.jpeg Can somebody confirm this and tell me more, please? Is this a new upgrade program or only a light weight for training? From which year on the hubs were used? Did somebody found an aftermarket offer with this new hubs? Beside that, the GWH F-15E/I kits in 1/72 scale did not offer the correct wheel hubs. They look like the C/J hubs but have larger diameters (diameters seems correct for F-15E). Thanks in advance Falk
