Right time to start a thread then....

 

Around 10-15% of my current Eagle stash... LOL yes My name is Gary and I'm a Eagle Addict

Decided to go with the Academy 1/48 F-15C MSIP kit this time around..

At this point I've really not committed to what unit I'll do, I had planned on adding yet another 493d Reaper jet from Lakenheath to my collection but since they are getting lots of love in this GB I'll go for something else.

Maybe a MSIP F-15C from Bitburg circa 1992/93 or Spangdahlem 1994/95 in the Mod Eagle Scheme.

Or a Mod Eagle F-15A MSIP from Soesterberg circa 1993 or go loud with a Edwards AFB F-15A in the white/orange scheme.

Cheers,

Now that is a stash, welcome aboard 

That's just the overflow Eagle pile, main stash is in the closet and stands at approx 130 1/48 F-15 kits...was more but I dumped about 30 or so premium Ltd Ed or High Grade Hase kits on EBay a couple of years ago.

Right then...

Gotten nothing done so far..lol, Touring cars at Snetterton last sunday and a busy week at work has prevented any modeling.

Also couldn't decide on which jet i wanted to build so pulled another 2 Academy MSIP kits from the stash(will start new threads) but most of the construction will be shown here,new threads will be for painting/markings/final reveal.

So the main subject of this thread...

 

F-15C 79-0078 22nd Fighter Sqn,36th Fighter Wing Bitburg AB,Germany 1992

The jet will be wearing its markings from the 1992 William Tell gunnery meet held at Tyndall AFB that year,Decals will be from Twobobs.

 

79-0078-105

 

The kit will be pretty much box stock apart from resin seat,wheels...and some intake FOD covers so i don't have waste time with the :poop:Academy give you.

Waiting on a set of the new Meng 1/48 weapons to arrive as during this timeframe they were still using AIM-7M Sparrows...not included in the F-15 kit.

 

More updates to follow shortly.

Please tell me that you're stash is composed of just Eagles... or is this just a fraction of all your other non-Eagle kits? Where do you live to keep all these?!? :o

LOL...total stash is well over 800 kits,more than I'll ever build in my life time if I'm honest...yet i still buy more.

I don't drink or smoke,too old for going out partying at the weekends so will normally buy atleast one kit per month.

Storage can be a issue sometimes..

OMG, I thought I had a big stash with a grand total of 34 kits!!! Nice Bitburg Mod scheme, love the cammo coloured stencils and tailcode but that Edwards F-15B scheme is something else!

...well...the Eagle is the Eagle!!!

Why don't you take this opportunity to carry out a multiple build? For sure you've got a reasonable amount of stuff for a start!!!

And should you feel you've got too many decals for an E from Lakenheath, even partial, well...gi me a shout!!!

Looking forward to se your progress!:yes:
