  1. stunning kit to build. the fit was great and only a little bit of filler used. I dont live that far from Lakenheath (Cambridge) and was pleased to find that the F-15j is a japanese version of the F-15c. Might not be 100% accurate but I am happy with it. I brought decals from Caracal models and am happy with the result. The blue is a bit pale, but looks ok. _20180328_184932 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_185109 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_185410 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190441 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190653 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190718 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190817 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_191056 by Richard Page, on Flickr DSC_0369 by Richard Page, on Flickr DSC_0369 by Richard Page, on Flickr DSC_0404 by Richard Page, on Flickr Used tamiya tape to make intake covers. Luckily the Caracal decals had a couple of nifty spare decals in yellow. Am really happy with the result _20180328_191158 by Richard Page, on Flickr The exhausts are a work of art from the kit. Easch one is made up of 21 parts!! Tried to replicate the white/brown/black insides of the exhausts. Also tried to heat stain the metal panels underneath _20180328_191000 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190920 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190848 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_190817 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_185317 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180328_185208 by Richard Page, on Flickr
  2. Thanks guysThanks very much
  3. Thanks. Painted definitely better. Takes a lot longer and with some lot of tape used. The guys at my club thought I was nuts earlier this week masking up the black bits on the markings
  4. Added extra wiring to the engine to beef it up a bit. All the national markings (bar the swastikas on the tail) and number 1 on the fuselage sides were created with homemade masks. The nose markings was fun to do!!

  5. I cant believe that I only started this two weeks ago. This is not the version with the already painted body work. I decided to add extra coloured wires (painted lead wires) to the back plate to busy it up a bit (a large expanse with lots of gaps otherwise. I also added twisted red/yellow wire to the main body to add a bit of visual interest. A really fun kit and probably the only model I have ever brought that I have sent a pic of to my wife from a model show and got told that I have to buy it (she is a big Back to the Future fan) I also tried to add heat staining to the two exhausts at the back, which I am pleased with how they came out. _20180213_113038 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180213_113120 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180213_113316 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180213_113751 by Richard Page, on Flickr P2130029 (2) by Richard Page, on Flickr P2130030 by Richard Page, on Flickr P2130031 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180213_113254 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180213_113609 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180213_113705 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180213_113158 by Richard Page, on Flickr P2130032 by Richard Page, on Flickr P2130033 by Richard Page, on Flickr P2130034 by Richard Page, on Flickr P2130037 by Richard Page, on Flickr Couldnt resist taking these photos of my two 80's film legends together _20180213_112835 by Richard Page, on Flickr _20180213_112807 by Richard Page, on Flickr
  6. Thanks Guys. Can highly recommend the model
  7. Thanks guys. Thanks for the advice regarding front landing gear ridge runner. I will have a think about whether trying to correct it
  8. Cheers guys. It was nerve racking each time I removed the next stage of masking as I could have ruined the previous stage. Luckily it all came together nicely
