Boeing F-15C MSIP II, 44th FS, 18th WG, GWH 1/48


Recommended Posts

Hello, this is my F-15C Eagle built last summer. It was from Great Wall Hobby also known as GWH in 1/48th scale. This model represents modernized F-15C Eagles with sigificant improvements and with new armaments. I discarded the original decal in the kit and chose 'Shogun Eagles' from Afterburner decals. The fitting of this plane is not quite perfect, one need to do a lot of filling and sanding to achieve excellent finishing. It would be better if you make the trailing edge of ailerons, flaps and horizontal stabilizer thinner. To my astonishment, the fitting of radome and doors of avionic bays were near perfect so I did not use cement to put them in place. The painting were done with Gunze Mr. Color paints. As for panel lines and rivets, I gave it a little touch with oil paints thinned with lighter liquid.

Another lovely model Zhou - beautifully built and finished.

 

I have the earlier B/D incarnation of this kit, with it's attendant correction package. I am not sure how much of the kit is the same as the C MSIP II boxing but it is approaching the top of my to do list. Are the exhaust nozzles those supplied in the kit? They look pretty good to a non-expert like me.

 

Cheers

Hello! 

As for the nozzles, they are 100% from the kit 🙂  WIP photos may answer all the things!

When compared to real nozzles

As for the radome colors. I simply take it as fiber glass materials that has its original color rather than painted. So I decided to paint with colors which differs from fuselage. Here are 2 reference photos.

I just got started on the J model, and will be replacing the exhausts straightaway. You made them look very convincing, however. 

 

Very nice!
