    Revell F15E 1/32 SCALE

    Thanks for the nice comment Daniel, now that you mention it, I had another look at the instructions (a bit late now) and checked, fool me I have chosen the scheme for an F15D. have to say though for those experts out there my apologies, I will put this down to me not paying close enough attention and possibly artistic license, I must admit I did prefer the two tone scheme to the overall dark grey. Thank you for pointing that out I appreciate your comments.

    Revell F15E 1/32 SCALE

    Thank you people for your kind comments, it is a big kit at 60cm long and 40cm wingspan and was a bit of a handful when spraying and applying the decals. Currently have another beast on the bench which is the Revell 1/32 F4F Test flight Phantom with the chequered pattern decals. Had this in my stash and when I saw it built and on display in my local model shop I felt compelled to start it, so if it turns out okay I will probably post some photos then, figures crossed. As regards to my query to F32 regarding his post, have just this morning looked at his reply on my phone and can make out the emoji clearer there than on my laptop, obviously I can see that it is a thumbs up symbol and I take that as a compliment thank you F32.

    Revell F15E 1/32 SCALE

    Hello F32, I'm new to this posting business and don't know if you have forgotten to add any text to your symbol that is there, I would appreciate it if you could elaborate or clarify your post. Sorry for my ignorance, thanking you in advance.

    Revell F15E 1/32 SCALE

    Thank you I appreciate the comment, its my first ever post of a completed model, have to say I build kits for the pleasure and as much as I admire some of the kits that are posted with all the additions and after market stuff I am quite happy to produce kits as they come out of the box imperfections or not, as long as it looks vaguely like the real thing.
  5. HI finished this recently, as stated 1/32 scale Revell F15E Eagle built straight out he box, painted with Humbrol enamels. Had this kit for many years it went together well no major problems in assembly, this is the kit I posted about previously when I was looking for a replacement canopy as I mucked up the original. Thankfully a fellow Britmodeller from Singapore came to my rescue and sent me a replacement, my thanks go to Kei for his assistance. Considering the age of the kit I got away with using the kit decals some did want to break up on application but I got there in the end.

    Revell F15 D/E Canopy

    Information and help please, I have recently built the Revell 1/32nd scale F15 D/E Eagle, kit no 4778, had this in my stash for longer than I can remember instructions dated 1992. My predicament is that I need a replacement canopy after making a pigs ear of painting the original and trying to rectify said painting debacle (canopy cracked beyond repair), this kit is well out of production so it is unlikely that a replacement would be available from Revell. Have tried searching for an after market replacement but so far have not been able to find any in 1/32nd scale. Can anyone point me in the right direction for a replacement or that knows of anyone with a spare to sell? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you in anticipation.

    Typhoons Over Edinburgh

    One flew over my house ( Musselburgh ) Saturday night around seven, flying West to East, only caught a glimpse but made out the shape. Then another flew over Monday night, only heard this but sounded like it was travelling North to South. Sorry don't know why.

    Photo etch parts

    Thanks for that Rich, appreciate that info.
  10. Hi guys, am looking for advice on any kind of apparatus that will help me with folding photo etch parts, seems that there is hardly a model that you buy nowadays that does not contain this in the box. Have reviewed the etch mate that is available from Hannants with very mixed reports from people that have this. Was wondering if there was more of a choice in the market place, thanks.

    Italeri Schnelboot 1/35th Scale

    Can anyone help, I am looking to purchase 1/35th scale Swastika flag decals for the Italeri Schnelboot S100, I have looked on the web but always end up on the collectors websites that have the real thing which is a bit bigger than required. Would prefer to buy from somewhere in the U.K. Any help would be very much appreciated.
