    Need pictures of a naked F-18 prototype

    Yes, it's called Alclad. It's for corrosion resistance.

    Okay. I'll ask the question in another way...............what are the pod's that are necessary for GBU 31's? They might be autonomous.

    Are there target designator pods on F-15E's that have GBU 31's loaded on?

    GWH F-15E vs Eduard boxing of Academy kit 1:48

    No. The GWH intakes are larger. Wider by 1/16". Longer by 3/32" .

    GWH F-15E vs Eduard boxing of Academy kit 1:48

    Yes. Top to Bottom. Now you made me do it. The Academy is 1 27/32". The GWH is 1 15/16". GWH is 3/32" taller. My C model GWH has the center line pylon and fuel tank.

    GWH F-15E vs Eduard boxing of Academy kit 1:48

    I just measured my Academy intakes. They are 5/8"in width. My GWH intakes are 11/16". That makes the GWH 1/16" wider than the Academy. I didn't measure the length but I will if I have to.

    GWH F-15E vs Eduard boxing of Academy kit 1:48

    I haven't built the GWH E model yet but I can talk about the C. Unlike modelingbob, I really thought the C kit was superb. I think it was one of the best F-15's I've built. The GWH E model is on my list to buy but I'm still balking at the price. If the price doesn't go down, I will still buy it. Like habu2 and Dave Williams, the Revell F-15E is a very good alternative though dated. IMO, I can't compare the Academy to the GWH or Revell under any circumstances.

    Final coat recommendation.

    I always use Model Master Acryl thinner. Probably 25% thinner or less. I don't measure it so I am guessing.

    Final coat recommendation.

    I prefer Model Master Acryl flat.

    Academy F-4J Main Gear Legs

    So am I. I can't wait for the E's to start being released.

    Academy F-4J Main Gear Legs

    Yeah Kurt. That's why I bought one only because I've never been thrilled with Academy engineering. ZM seems to have things going their way.
