  1. Hi all, this is the first project I've decided to post for some feedback, so go easy! This is the Revell F-15E Strike Eagle, but rather than doing a boring grey US one I decided to try some digital camo in a Israeli colour scheme. The camo was all painted using masks I cut out with my Silhouette Portrait die cutting machine. The weapons loadout is supposedly the same one they used on a long range precision bombing mission, I forget the name. I used as many generic decals from the kit as possible, but also custom printed the special Israeli ones. I didn't pre-shade, but base-coated in black, panel lines were done by lightly scratching the paint out with a scriber to uncover the base colour. I know some people like this kit, but I'm not a fan. There were some large gaps in the wing joins, and just behind the cockpit was a real PITA to try and smooth out. The fuselage near the back needed a lot of work and I seem to remember the conformal tanks or bomb pylons not being too friendly. I'm sorry to say I only took 3 pictures before it got smashed to bits by a camera falling on it. :-( After debating whether to bin it or not, I did some repairs to fit all the broken bits back on, the front gear had snapped so I had to drill out the leg and wire it up. The worst part was the nosecone had split down the seam that I was so proud of having made invisible, and I couldn't be bother to fix that. I also lost some of the bits from the cockpit, they just vanished in the crash. Oh well, I don't keep my models anyway, so I took it to work and it's lived up on a filling cabinet gathering dust ever since.
  2. Hi everyone, This is a project I did for a very good friend of mines' 50th. Well suffice to see it could also have been for his 51st as it took over a year on and off to complete! It's based on an early configuration F-15E from the 48FW at RAF Lakenheath which we have both visited many times. Happy birthday chap! PS: Build thread can be found here:
  3. Hi, My name is Richie and I love the smell of burnt kerosene. Having spent many hours watching the real deal with a very good friend of mine and to celebrate his 50th, I thought I'd try to emulate the superb results on this site and build a model from a unit at his local airbase, Lakenheath. As way of background I suffer from: a - an over-ambitious build programme that would require the invention of time travel to complete my collection. b - a lack of resistance to nice new shiny decals (that adds to the first issue). c - an inability to recognise that OOB is just fine in most cases. d - the view that 50 Shades of Grey is the epitome of panel weathering. e - a lack of sufficient minutes in the day to fit everything in (work, family, plastic fettling etc) I am also an Optimistic 80%er. By that I mean I will endeavour to add detail/changes when it makes a noticeable difference but lack of skills / patience may ultimately limit my AMS ambition to a level of ‘Good Enough’. And so to the challenge, a 1/48 Revell F-15E. This is going to be mostly out of the box with a few embellishments along the way. In addition, I though I'd put her in flight (not literally of course) and light her up. Unfortunately this wont be a quick and dirty build (well probably dirty). Very happy for comments, suggestions, advice etc but don’t be offended if I do something different or not quite true to life, as they say art is in the eye of the beholder. Steve, happy 50th birthday and this ones for you! Game on.
  4. Hey everyone, I'm currently rebuilding on an old Academy F-15E which I built about 10 years ago. I'm experimenting with new tricks and learning new techniques on it but I still wan't to make it as accurate as possible. My problem is that some parts are missing. I can recreate most of them using plastic sheets but that's hopeless in the case of the drop tanks and I don't want to invest money in a rebuilt kit. F-15Es always had drop tanks on them during Desert Storm according to this website so I thought maybe I'll build a diorama with the aircraft returning after mission. Here are my questions: Did SCUD hunting F-15Es drop their tanks if they engaged the enemy during their mission? In what order are the bombs dropped from the hardpoints? I'm planning to build either loadout 1 or 4 if this makes any difference.
  5. Had some spare time over the Christmas period and managed to finish. Overall I’m quite happy with the results. A couple of little bits that I would do differently in the future, but you live and learn! I really enjoyed this build and despite some things I have read on the internet about this kit, everything went together pretty well with only minimal filling and sanding needed. I would recommend this kit. Now the pics! Apologies if Flikr is still on the blink and not embedding. Thabks for looking and happy modeling!
  6. 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
  7. Its been a helluva 12 months, hospitalised for half of it, split up with my partner, moved house and then, Donald Trump. I finally feel like mangling styrene after a years layoff and thought I’d start small. Any smaller and I’d need a microscope. This will be OOB and that teeny canopy is going to test my shaky hand but it’ll be cool to get a model built again. Not sure about about which scheme, I’m favouring the tiger stripey one. Incidentally, the new issue has the instrument panels left off back in 2011 Paint wise I’ll be continuing my experiment to make my Mr El Cheapo pre-mixes from last year that worked pretty well on this beastie. Boxes: Sprues Amazingly good detail Decals and minute canopy I'll see y'all next week! A

    I've been searching for this Twobobs set for years. I know a few others on here have as well, so thought I'd let everyone know. Www.hannants.Co.uk/product/TB48147 Enjoy. Simon.

  14. Hi, I had this one on the limbo shelf for about one and half year, then I decided to finish the bloody thing. As you can see is far from an ambitious model, for some reason I like it without any weathering, fear to mess it up?, maybe. I really need two more lamps to get proper pictures, so be forgiving. On with the pics: Hope you like it
  15. I had a couple of days of holiday to burn so I took myself and my new lens up to Lakenheath and Mildenhall for a couple of days.
