Hasegawa F-15J Eagle `305SQ 40th Anniversary' special markings 1/72


Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

 

 The kit is a generic Hasegawa kit, which is no problem in the building except for some minor parts which require little filling and sanding. But what strikes me or what is conspicuous is the marking when I saw this aircraft 2 years ago I wish someone did it and Hasegawa came out and I just bought it. Yeah, the decals were just awesome and blown me away. So here it is my favorite aircraft in my collections. The F-15J Eagle `305SQ 40th Anniversary' special markings.

Seeing those has made me grin out loud! Beautiful, beautiful work. Two little jewels and the contrast between the two schemes is dazzling.

 

I saved one of your photos in a new folder called 'Fab models to emulate', I hope you don't mind.

Spectacular job! I can imagine those decals could have been a nightmare but you pulled it off perfectly. As Bertie above just said, something to emulate!

Indeed it was quite tough working with those decals I made a small video will share here once I done editing it. Appreciate the kind words, cheers.

Wow!

Confidence and precision in the application of decals are qualities you clearly possess in spades!

Definitely gold standard for complex marking schemes.

That looks awesome. I know you said the decals were good, but still, applying them must have been tricky.

Hehe, it wasn't that easy when you don't have decals softner it is just vinegar and lots of patient as I can do quickly as I have to see how the vinegar react and register the decals. Lots of on the edges time. Glad I didn't had a hammer with me. Thank you for the kind words

It sure was, and as I stated before it was a daunting task took a day and half to complete it Thank you so very much.

It just looks so right and to get the decals to sit so well means you are a decal sensei.

 

Amazing.

Decals, this one work I will never forget, use almost half a bottle of vinegar to get this, wish I had some decal softner, life would have been easy hehe, Thank you for the kind words, cheers.
