1/48 F-15E, 335th FS, Inherent Resolve, 2016.


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Here is my recently finished Revell 1/48 F-15E Strike Eagle, in the markings of the 335th Fighter Squadron 'Chiefs' during Operation Inherent Resolve in 2016.  89-0487 downed an Iraqi Mi-24 with a GBU-10 during Operation Desert Storm and was the first F-15 to reach 12000 flying hours. The build thread is here

 

I wanted a heavily worn jet as seen in many pictures online. Extras used include Pavla seats, Speed Hunter Graphics decals, Eduard Brassin GBU-39 Small Diameter Bombs and FOD guards from the spares. the AIM-120s, AIM-9, GBU-38s and GBU-12s are all from an Academy F-15E.

Having missed the WIP I thought I'll pop out here instead, complimenting you on a terrific Mudhen!

That weathering looks just about right,if I can trust the small screen in my phone.

No real issues with the Revell kit I take it? Not a huge amount of filler has been used from what I can see, so I'm guessing it's good in that aspect.

Will have another look as soon as I'm om a bigger screen...

Thanks mate. The Revell kit is great, the 3rd best fitting kit i've built - only behind Tamiya's F-14 and F-16.

Hello DvaeJL,

You succeded in turning this beast into a very weathered example.

One question:

What type of armory is on the center line. Not familiar to me at this moment.

Regards, Orion / The Netherlands.

They are GBU-39 Small Diameter Bombs.
