  1. Beautiful buid, the green windshield looks brilliant! How did you do it? Thanks for sharing, Arnaud
  2. You can get F-15C or E stencils for pretty cheap in the discount section of TwoBobs, or Caracal has a stencil-only sheet for the F-15E http://www.twobobs.net/contents/en-us/p521.html http://caracalmodels.com/cdb48006.html F-15C: http://www.twobobs.net/contents/en-us/p671.html http://www.twobobs.net/contents/en-us/p252.html
  3. Beautiful work Gianni, as usual it's hard to tell it's 1/72! 🧐 Arnaud
  4. Fantastic work Gianni. I'm fine thank you, I hope you are OK too although France is now on the same path as Italy 😞
  5. Beautiful work Gianni, nearly there!!! Arnaud
  6. Very informative, thanks for sharing your knowledge Gabor! Arnaud
  7. Thank you Steve. I did not mean to challenge your knowledge in any way, it just looked too strong an effect to be a sunlight thing. I'm indeed building a 389th Strike Eagle, which is how I came across this effect 🙂 Arnaud
  8. Thanks Steve, the tint seems to extend well beyond the HUD though. Weird 🤔
  9. Hello, Would anyone know what's the rule for Strike Eagles front canopies when it comes to tinting? I find some pictures where it's clearly tinted vs the main canopy, some where it seems as clear as the main canopy 🤔 Thanks a ton in advance!! Arnaud Tinted: Non-tinted:
  10. The main cockpit parts are painted on the sprue, as the tabs are out of sight 🙂 All OOB, very nice decals are provided for all screens and bezels I also added locating stops for the Aires exhausts as their outer diameter is barely smaller than the fuselage inner diameter Cheers, Arnaud
  11. Lol my wife went on the computer and wondered why I had 10 tabs open on Firefox about holographic nail polishes 🤔
  12. Totally agree Aaaron, the missing center pylon is a very strange omission considering 1/ it's so often there on F-15Es 2/ they have it tooled 3/ they included it in the F-15I boxing Fortunately I had planned for this and will build my F-15C, which includes it, without center pylon 🙂 Made a lot of progress on the cockpit today, will post pictures a bit later Stay tuned, Arnaud
  13. Thanks Steve. I started tackling the upper fuselage, with the intakes upper vents. GWH provides nice PE replacements which require cutting out the original plastic grills. In order to cut just the right size I measured the PE grills and made a vinyl cutting template using my Silhouette Portrait: The grills were then fitted using UV-curing glue, first time using it and I must say I'm very impressed: super convenient and much easier than CA glue 🙂 Cheers, Arnaud
  14. You're right, this one would work much better but is out of stock everywhere I looked 😞 https://www.ebay.fr/itm/BORN-PRETTY-Nail-Polish-Vernis-a-Ongle-Holographique-Magnetique-Cameleon-Thermal-/153227532946
