1/48 F-15 JASDF 60th Anniversary and 2016 review


Recommended Posts

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.

Nope... can't see any inaccuracies... looks like an F-15 to me and a really nicely built one at that. All of them are great!

 

What's a flying shark though? looks like a Su-27 / 33? Also did the pointy bit on the nose get bent somehow or does it fold down too.

Great looking F-15 and the other two look pretty good too.

That's the Chinese navy version of Su-33. Yes the Su-33 kit supplies a bent down nose antenna for parked configuration.

Wow! Excellent work!

You could easily improve the F-15 by removing the outer wing pylons and replacing the thicker fintip anti flutter weight with a small, identical one to the other side,if you are concerned about accuracy of course!

I used Mr. Color 307 and 308. Those are gray matched for F-15

Hello Jizz,

Clean and mean Fighter.

With the tensions rising in the South China Sea region, Nippon better keeps them all at the High Readiness State.
