  1. I'm in with this kit from my stash...gotta love invasion stripes! Based outa my home village of Lakenheath. May need some bits like a AN/AAQ-33 Sniper Pod and an AAQ-13 LANTIRN pod as I may have robbed those in the kit for my last build...need to check! The airframe was 1 of 3 that was painted in a heritage scheme in 2019 to honour the wings involvement in the D-Day operation at the75 years commemoration. 97-0219 was built to reflect a P-47 Thunderbolt, 'Nelli B'.... https://www.lakenheath.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/1744647/liberty-wing-unveils-heritage-jet/ Looks like it carried some CATM units for AIM-9M and AIM-120C so will probably create something along those lines as well... I got the decals via a swap, the C model had been used and I have the Red paint in the collection so decision made... Ive a couple of other things on the go and really want to get my Merlin off the bench, but want to get going early on this...if I find some ref pics showing it a little more worn paint job wise I will try to reflect that, but likely kept nice and shiny...best go look at the box and see what's missing!
  2. 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 proceeded to use an acrylic wash on top of an acrylic sealer coat (future). So, I scrapped that kit (using it as my test-bed) and began a brand new one, same kit, lessons learned. This is the result. It certainly is not perfect, and round two was no walk in the park, but she is done, and I think she looks halfway decent. Let me know your thoughts (good and bad)! Enjoy!
  3. Academy’s new tool 1/72 F-15E. By now we’ve all see and heard of the terrible exhausts. That’s really the only huge drawback. I remedied that with the Aires nozzles. Easy peasy. I added a GBU-31 JDAM, GBU-12 Paveways and a an AIM-9L, but everything else was OOB. The fit was excellent, absolutely NO filler was used in this build. Solid 4-Star kit!
  4. Im in with this kit - apparently the best E model in the scale - I have an Academy E sat in the stash but with me already doing an Academy C model thought I'd build this - actually bought it as I needed the GBU10s (If anyone had a spare GBU10 let me know as I seem to have lost one!) for my F111F El Dorado Canyon build. Again a personal type build as I am from Lakenheath. Have a variety of decals to choose from so will see what others build.....however am tempted by a 494 FS Mudhen as I built a 494FS F111F. Will be in flight - maybe airbrake up - ruddder from a C?!
  5. Hi everyone, After deciding NOT to enter another group build, here is my entry for this GB! Revell's 1/48 F-15E Strike Eagle, box has seen better days! : \ The contents : The aftermarket, will probably add some Aires exhausts at a later date : I'm using Afterburner Decals 48045 Lakenheath Mudhens for the markings. Cheers, Sean
