  4. 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!!!

  8. This has been standing in this condition since i bought it. I can't decide what livery it should wear. Hasegawa has made some of the best kits i've built, including this and the 737 series(with the exception of the -500). Their DC-10 ain't bad either, but sadly one of the wings on mine got warped for reasons unknown. Anyway, back to this. I honestly don't know what livery to put on it. I've looked at Delta, Blue1 Star Alliance, JAL, American, etc. but i can't make up my mind. I have also been looking at UNI Air, but to my knowledge there are no decals for that one. Atleast not in this scale. So if anyone has any tips on any good looking, not to bland liveries, don't hesitate to post them.
