  1. Hello mountain top masters and conversion guru's! I have a unique and likely simple problem. Last year I bought a very aged F-15A from Manila, Ph. I live in Cebu, Philippines. Anyway, when I opened the kit, all was there and seemingly on perfect order, save for one thing, the decals are the color of some smokers teeth, a very nasty yellow! Anyway, I tried the "leave it in the window, sun bleeching" technique. To my surprise, this actually worked pretty good, but fell short of where it needs to be, and still are unsuited for use with the kit. Next, I contacted the seller, who told me to contact Tamiya about the problem. For the longest time, I was unable to find a distributor to help me with the problem, but recently I finally found the right people to help out. So here is where we are at. Apparently the kit is no longer in production, and I realized that the C is a more interesting kit for me anyway. So, is a conversion possible, or should I just look for aftermarket A decals, and save me the trouble? On a side note, I also have the F-15E demonstrator, that is really a D aircraft dressed up as an E. This was not known to me when I bought that kit from the same store. Anyway, I would prefer to make a proper D out of that kit, anyone know what needs to be done to accomplish this conversion? I would prefer to buy a new E kit that is accurate, than make the demonstrator version. Thanks in advance, Anthony Convert to C or buy A decals? Here is the Hasegawa fake F-15E demonstrator. Can it be built as is, as a D, or do I have to change part to convert it properly, besides the decals?
  2. first 1/72 kit by Great Wall Hobby: F-15E Strike Eagle item number: L7201 source: http://modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=95825&start=1665#p1921674
  3. 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 details, instrument panels, and side panels. Parts for the ejection seats, HUD, And canopy mirrors; as well as a new radar antenna for the nose, and parts for the avionics bay. Even tho Eduard list this as an "Interior" set there are then a host "exterior" parts including engine fans, internal parts for the air intakes, brake lines and links for the landing gear. There are new insides the landing gear doors, and parts for the main gear doors. There are also parts for the main wheel hubs. Zoom! Set (FE949) This set contains a reduced subset of the interior set (the colour fret) set, namely the pre-painted parts that are used to improve on the main aspects of the cockpit, as seen above. Whatever your motivations for wanting this set, it provides a welcome boost to detail, without being concerned with the structural elements. Seatbelts (FE950) This set contains one pre-painted fret. There are seatbelts, in the now familiar steel material for both seats. Tface Masks (EX635) Supplied on yellow kabuki tape, these pre-cut masks supply you with a full set of masks for the interior & exterior glazing; plus the wheels. Review samples courtesy of

  9. Hi, I finish few days ago new Academy F15E kit. I added Aires exhaust nozzles to this kit. I'm happy with the work, there were no bigger problems. Unfortunately I destroyed decals for weapons under the wings. I painted the model with Gunze and Tamiya. The new project will also be Academy:
  10. Hi All! Well I’ve been on this forum for a few weeks now so thought I would post my first WIP thread. Revell’s 1/48 F-15E. I noticed that there was recently a GB on the F-15. Sadly I missed this but figured I would post anyway to compare my novice building skills against some excellent models. Also it gives me a chance to get used to posting pics and develop my skills before the 2018 GB’s start. I am making this completely OOB and can’t imagine that I’ll be getting involved in any scratch building just yet. So, one with some pics! I forgot to take pics as I was working on the cockpit but have it fully assembled here. Here it is with seam lines filled and sanded. Not much work involved as the fit was great. Air intakes assembled. Quite happy with the sanding and filling to remove the seam before they were painted and fixed into the main fuselage. And last one for tonight, the main fuselage dry fitted. Will continue tomorrow. Thanks for looking and any advice would be great

  12. Hi everyone Model of the F-15C fighter. I used photoetching of Eduard. I have made for the customer. Thank you that have glanced. Best regards, Martin
  13. Ok, got another Gulf War question Some F-15Cs during the Gulf War carried AMRAAMs and as I understand it, usually just two in the inner rail of the wing pylon. This would presumably mean that this rail had the LAU-128 pylon rather than the older style. However, would the outer rail which had AIM-9s also used the LAU-128 or would have kept the older type? I presume at some point in the 90s all the rails were switched to LAU-128s but given that the AMRAAM has hastily deployed to the Gulf War, whether just the necessary launchers were switched too. Thanks! P.S. I could not find any F-15 Gulf War pic carrying AMRAAMs hence the question...
  14. Just noticed that Sprue Brothers have the Hasegawa 1/72 NF-15B ACTIVE/IFC in stock. The Box photo shows it in NASA markings. When the aircraft first showed up at Edwards AFB it was as the Short TakeOff and Landing - Maneuvering Technology Demonstrator (STOL-MTD). I assume the Hasegawa kit has the stock cylindrical engine exhaust nozzles and some F-18 horizontal tails for the canards. Probably a lot of work to back date it to the STOL-MTD, but I'd like to try it some time. Here are some images of the aircraft arrival at Edwards in June 1989 - original configuration with two-dimensional vectoring exhaust nozzles and YAPS nose boom... Couldn't swing my camera fast enough! Note the canard actuator fairings on top of the intakes. At the Edwards open house four months later... 2-D nozzles replaced with circular nozzles and the YAPS boom is gone. Thanks for looking, Sven

  16. This was a very quick build started right after New Year after a slow 2016. This was a Tamiya F-15C kit so there may be some inaccuracies. Two completed projects in 2016 J-15 Flying shark prototype 1/48 parked configuration with dummy missiles Su-30 Prototype 1/48
  17. Good day, colleagues! I present to you my first model of a modern theme. From the aftermarket I use resin chair and colored etched parts of the dashboard.
  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 significant improvement over the highly inaccurate original E version. The new CFTs are beautifully molded, as are the targeting pods which are taken directly from one of their weapons sets. Everything fits like a glove. If you ask me, it is well worth the price and only option for an accurate E in this scale. My only gripe with the kits is that the engine exhausts are a pain to build and that there's hardly any rivets (except in the Strike Eagle CFTs). Some info on the two builds: F-15C This is Cpt. Cesar "Rico" Rodriguez from the legendary Gorillas (58th Fighter Sq), who shot down 2 Iraqi jets during the war and nearly a decade later added another to his tally in Kosovo. The markings were taken from an old Microscale set and the stencils from Two Bobs. Gunze paints were used in the original ghost gray camo and note that this aircraft still featured the old style hi-viz markings. A keen eye will note that I lost the canopy actuator. If anyone has a spare, please drop me a line as I feel that was the only error in the build. Also have not had the time to arm it with missiles so that'll have to wait (will post updated pics later). Weathering was done with Humbrol dark gray wash with some extra streaking in black and burnt umber below. F-15E There's a dearth of Gulf War Strike Eagle decals in 1/72 scale so my only shot at this was the Hi-Decal set which is pretty awful: they are thick, prone to silvering and the pilot names are unreadable. Also take a lot of Microsol to settle in and the yellow squadron band on the fins simply did not conform at all so I removed them. Despite having numerous Two Bobs sets in reserve, I stupidly chose to use the kit's decals for the stencils since the Hi Decals were quite thick already. BIG mistake: lots of silvering throughout which was really disappointing. Oh well. I'll build a nicer replacement one day. Aside from that, no major problems. This airframe (87-183) from the 335th Squadron (Rocketeers) has only a few bomb markings so it was logical to assume it was still early in the conflict when Strike Eagles could only carry dumb bombs. So I used the kit supplied Rockeye cluster bombs for a full load. I added at LITENING pod anyway even though this would be inaccurate. I also accidentally painted the Rockeyes olive drab when they probably were white. Because I used the kit decals, the yellow band is also inaccurate since it is just yellow when during the war it had white stripes. Sue me! Painting as done with Tamiya XF-24 which I think is the most accurate representation of FS36118 in acrylic (Gunze is way too light and does not have a bluish tint). Was given a black wash with similar weathering to the C. Quite happy with how they came out so enjoy the pics

  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 - I have yet to see a GW bird convincingly appearing in mod eagle colors although a number of GW veterans apparently switched that very same summer (like the Bitburg birds) Evindence towards Mod Eagle - Lots of modellers seem to do it in this camo - Hasegawa's boxing has the 1991 version in mod eagle as well as the 2003 commander's aircraft (which I assume is the one in the box photo which is clearly mod eagle). However, the latter is a different airframe. Also, Hasegawa's instructions have the 1991 version with very few stencils which makes me wonder whether it had been hastily painted before the war. I figure someone in this forum has the answer

  22. 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
  23. Hi guys, Like the title says I am thinking of building an F-15D (probably an aggressor) and was wondering if I could use the excellent Revell F-15E as a starting point. If so is it as simple as leaving off the FAST packs and relevant aerials and adding those relevant to an F-15D. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Craig.
  24. Hi Everyone! This is my third and the last model for this year – F-15C in IDF service. In fact the model is not completely new. It’s the refurbishment of the Modelist kit (repack of Academy) that I assembled OOB some 14 years ago as the USAF’s F-15. I was never happy with how it turned out and was thinking about major overhaul for couple of years. The idea to do it as an IDF’s Baz gave me the necessary mojo. I stripped model of the paint with caustic soda (this procedure also helped to safely detach most minor parts), cleaned and polished canopy, removed upper front fuselage part to make improvements to the cockpit. Then assembled everything back. Aftermarket updates to the original kit included some Eduard PE and Quickboost chair in the cockpit and Hasegawa’s AIM-7E and AIM-9L (for some reason soda did not help to remove white paint from original missiles). Plus the key element – beautiful Isradecal set. It’s very nice – well-printed, readable stencils, allows to build any IDF’s Baz. But it’s over 300 decals and that is not including stripes on missiles. To be honest – decaling quality started to diminish after #200. And now I start panicking when I see ‘complete stencils’ sheets I reproduced F-15C #840 nicknamed “Commando” soon after the Lebanon war – somewhat in 1983. Therefore it has all 6 kill marks and earlier squadron markings and nickname style. The aspect I’m not really sure about is Sidewinders I know that IDF widely used Python 3 missiles during Lebanon war – however various sources give various information on what missiles were actually used to kill MiGs – some claim 100% Python’s, some claim that Sidewinders were also used Final decision to use Sidewinders was due to virtual unavailability of Pythons. Maybe sometime later I will get true Israeli missiles and replace those boring AIM-9s… It's a bit late for Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas – but just in time for Happy New Year to everyone!!! Dennis
  25. Hello fellow modelers, I wish you all the best for the New Year and a lot of completed models My next project will be the Israeli version of the F-15 countries. The kit will add photoetched from Eduard and resin from the seats Aires. Meanwhile I compose the cockpit, but it is not finished yet. Supplemented by a few etchings into the shaft gear
