  5. Afternoon all, The lockdown in the UK has given me plenty of time at the bench, so here are a few photos of my latest build - an F-15E Strike Eagle from the 494th Fighter Squadron based here in the UK (at RAF Lakenheath). This was the new-ish Great Wall Hobby kit with the following additions: Aires F-15 engine nozzles Meng GBU-31 2000lb JDAM Meng AIM-120C Meng AIM-9M Eduard GBU-38 500lb JDAMs Eduard GBU-39 small diameter bombs on BRU-61 racks Eduard Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod TwoBobs F-15E "Maximum Effort" decals So
  6. Apparently, sometime in the past I built an Airfix Eagle. Probably in the late Seventies. I don't remember doing so, but there you are. Anyway, I discovered it in a box a few years ago and it's been hanging around in the mancave crying out for a refurb. Now is the time. I recently discovered the magic of Dettol as a paint stripper. I've just finished a build, so with a clear desk I set to. The kit came apart quite easily, the ancient tube glue having crystalized over the years. Bits got dunked into the Dettol for 24 hours at a time and scrubbed. Forget a six inch bru
  7. Well I can't compete with Sven's quality but I did luckily snag a few LA F-15A/Bs when I visited Nellis in October 91. We were outside the base and I believe this area is now inaccessible sadly. I don't think the 555 TFTS kept their Eagles for much longer after our visit and Luke AFB fairly quickly turned Viper. 76-0110 76-0037 77-0157 Cheers Malcolm

  9. I've got the GWH F-15I Ra'am kit in the stash and I've been wondering are the cockpit parts and canopy exactly the same as their F-15E kit? thanks Mike
  10. Each year, the school has an Easter Egg competition. This year, to mark the 50th anniversary, the theme is the Apollo Moon landings. Since my daughter has been modelling for a few years now, still with lots of guidance, we planned on something a little better than the toilet rolls and sticky tape usually seen in these types of projects. We decided on the Eagle lander and an astronaut as our build. We began with an MDF base for the Lunar landscape. After a coat of PVA glue, the base was covered in first coat wall plaster and after a few minutes to begin the cure, w
  11. F-15C MSIP II Update set, Seatbelts & Masks 1:48 Eduard for Great Wall Hobby Kit The new tool F-15C MSIP II was welcomed in this scale. Eduard are now along with some sets for it. Get what you want for the areas you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. Interior Set (49949) This set has one pre-painted fret, and one brass one. You get cockpit deta
  12. Hello, this is my F-15C Eagle built last summer. It was from Great Wall Hobby also known as GWH in 1/48th scale. This model represents modernized F-15C Eagles with sigificant improvements and with new armaments. I discarded the original decal in the kit and chose 'Shogun Eagles' from Afterburner decals. The fitting of this plane is not quite perfect, one need to do a lot of filling and sanding to achieve excellent finishing. It would be better if you make the trailing edge of ailerons, flaps and horizontal stabilizer thinner. To my astonishment, the fitting of radome and doors of avionic bays

  14. The Spine Booster Pack for my eagle is now complete. I think It has turned out quite well and it fits on to the Eagle spine perfectly. The finish is Halfords White Primer over coated with Halfords matt lacquer. Details are picked out with red-brown, gloss orange, extra dark sea grey and blue. Decals are some spares from the bit box and some specific markings were printed on white paper and glued in place and lacquered. I also used some Humbrol weathering powders to add a little dirt but not much. The Booster pa
  15. Hi all, This is my first ever model aircraft build. I chose the new tooling of the Academy 1/72 F-15E from the 333rd FS out of SJ airbase. Straight build out of box, painted and decaled. Apologies for mediocre image quality. I just ordered a light tent on Amazon, and will repost pictures once I have a chance to use it. I began this build in the middle of August, and ran into many issues, like dropping the assembled kit into a pool of plastic cement, and melting the piece where the NMF is up top of the aircraft. I then made it all the way through my build, and proceede
  16. Completed the MPC 22in kit recently, my most expensive kit. I added a lot of extra detail as it is a bit bare. The original 43in Studio Model had pretty obvious detailing added, several Luna Model kit parts stuck on it. Gemini 1/48 and 1/24 bits, parts of Tiger Tank bodies, etc, etc. and the transfers included some Letraset (remember?) press-on Bathroom designer stickies on it. I added more detail underneath, then sprayed, masked and rep-sprayed various details. The springy Landin legs were as out of the box, but could be improved by shortening the legs, to show sag under load. The mo

  18. A labor of love that took a while to finish due to numerous mishaps (including have to completely re-paint the C). Here be two lovely Hasegawa Eagles in The One True Scale™. No need to go over the qualities of the Hase F-15 series. Best Eagles on the market despite the molds being nearly 30 years old! It is a testament to the quality of the originals that they are still better than anything built since. The F-15C is from the original 80s boxing while the Strike Eagle is from the newer "updated" set which despite being quite pricey (£25 on eBay from a Japanese seller) is a significa
  19. So my pre-order from the US Finally arrived last week and I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't get stung for an idiotic ransom demand from HMRC, but a relatively modest charge! This meant it cost a LOT less than the UK retails are asking for AND it arrived early. So here is the box as it arrived, with Cthulhu showing the excitement that I was feeling! I'm not doing a sprue shot as there are loads of them, you can see them at the bottom of this page http://catacombs.space1999.net/main/merc/vmmer2.html So to start off with the spine needs to be put together. Each side frame comes in two
  20. I have a question about the legendary "Gulf Spirit", mainly what color it was during the Gulf War. I have seen many modellers build it in the ghost gray and the Mod Eagle scheme but clearly it could have only been one during the Gulf War. I am nearly convinced that it is ghost gray but just wanted to confirm. Evidence towards ghost gray - The few pictures of the GW show it as ghost gray looking. However, I have to say that ghost gray and mod eagle look surprisingly similar in many photos, as lighting effects come into play. - Osprey's F-15Cs in Combat has it ghost gray

  22. Forbidden Planet has a pre-order price (for later in May 2016) of £109.99 plus (I think) £7.50 P&P. Does anyone know of a better offer in the UK? (Hannants are out of stock at £129.99)
  23. Hello fellow modelers I would like to introduce my latest finished model. It is an F-15E from Revell 1/48. Kit I added resin from the nozzle Aires and RBF from Eduard. Perhaps you will like it
  24. So lets try again with a resin kit... I bought this one as an Xmas present to myself earlier this year, not knowing that a couple of months later an injection molded kit of a 22" (ie 1:48 scale) Eagle transporter would be announced by Round 2 for the end of 2015! So, my thinking is if I don't build this NOW, I'll never get round to building it and if I try to re-sell it, I won't get anything like what I paid for it when there is (in theory) a better IM kit available for less! Here we go then This was a very well received kit within the Space :1999 community and builds up into
  25. All Eagle Keepers, Really looking forward to this. It is my first Group Build and also my first Work in Progress, the standard pics below of the kit and aftermarket zacto goodies (well impressed with these), I may also use Ozmods pilots and will add a pic of them if I decide to use them. Still thorn on what one to do hence the dragon decal sheet, but think it will be the Tigermeet version as I have a serious short fall in spare weapons.
