@Col. Do you really plan to use a Sea Harrier cockpit in the F15?

It might be a bit too small.

Even I'm not that daft :lol:

Oooh ... the decal cover sheet shows the F-15J that I wish to build. Its the green camouflaged one all the way on the right. Now to see if the decals are still available. 

Happy Hunting Dennis. The green scheme is rather lovely but on a -DJ two-seater remember ;) 

In the meantime, some inspiration...

Got my grubby paws on this classic today. So sign me up! Chances are good I'll have hopefully gotten a Academy F-15C in the following year so might have 2 Eagles to build.

I’ve always wanted to recreate the multiple Review Build of 1:72 F-15 kits in Scale Models I think it was.  Must find it as I can’t remember whether it was two or three kits. Definitely at least Revell and Monogram but can’t remember if there was a third.  

 

I also remember @Graeme H years ago saying how old he felt when the F-15 first appeared in the US Museum at Duxford on one of his many trips to the UK.

Found it!  

 

It was in one of the 1974 Scale Models magazines in the “New to You?” Segment and the third one was the Hasegawa kit. 

 

Then in the February 1975 Scale Models there was a more detailed build of all three.

So have the Hasegawa and Revell kits in the “Stash” but will need to hunt down a Monogram kit before this GB starts.

hi Dennis, I don't know if you managed to find these yet, but DXM has them for sale at the moment.

Hmm...somewhere I have the Hasegawa 1:72 F-15E so maybe I could find some interesting markings for it. I'm not a big fan of low-viz grey schemes. Let me poke around!

 

Cheers,

Bill

Hello Bill might I suggest the Israeli or Japanese aircraft for more colorful variants ? Shall I add you to the list as a possible build ?

Sure, why not? Gotta build it sometime!   :)

PS. JASDF - great idea!
