  1. Hi, I will be using the Bullseye 48-008 Desert Storm Eagles. Hence the need for verification of the chaff/flare system without MSIP notification as the notes on the decals only provides the information for the MSIP modification. The BT and CR serials are for the non-MSIP ones; the BT ones are from Bulldogs. Cheers, Arkut
  2. It is obvious from the photo of the left intake but it is D and MSIP aircraft. But there are other details from other photos that there is also a C model but can not verify clearly the serial. There is one with starting 80-xxxx but the chaff/flare can not be verified to belong to that particular one. Anyway, both Your statements didi make me convinced. Your father was very lucky to shoot these ones. I wish I was that lucky. May be we can only hope to see another open day sooner than we expect. The '92 year is just a bit late for the period. Of course, those might just be
  3. Dear 31Tiger, Thank You too for Your precious effort and information. You are right that the Verlinden book contains the pictures where the buckets are visible. Unfortunately the planes’ identification (ie. serials) can not be verified hence I felt opening the title for a chance. well, in this case I have more than one chance that You and Murph both verified my assumption. Also I again appreciate the rest of the details as they are useful for additional points I need to pay attention. I will try to implement them on the model. Thank You very
  4. Dear Murph, Thank You very much for Your precious comments and answer. I needed the verification as I also was assuming that they were equipped with the chaff/flare. Since I am not an expert on the airplane I needed to consult Yours. (I have learned the difference of MSIP and self defence utility from Your statements;) ) I was also looking for a photo of that period for the squadrons. I have found a BT plane in a Squadron Publications Air War-Desert Storm book but the quality is very low that it is not possible to identify the area in front of the wheel wells.
  5. Hello, At last I could finish a model after 2 years. Well, the reason; moving to a new country, getting new training for my job etc. The model is detailed with very minor additions like seatbelts (FM Nano) fuel line, brakes lines, handles for the canopy, self made pitot tube, antenna. Also only the devil head and the number 154 are decals. Paints used are from Gunze Sangyo. Only the hard lines on the wings and elevators are masked. The rest and the wavy camouflage on the leading edges of the wings are painted without masking. I tried tro depict as if the colors are faded under stro

  7. Dear Vern, Unfortunately as they are visible and clearly identifiable by their appearance they have to be added on the model if they had existed during Desert Storm (1991) for the planes that I want to build. The model itself (Hasegawa) does not have any visible magazines on it. Even the GWH has the blank plates have in place and one needs to replicate the magazines by him/herself should one want to depict the condition during an operation. But since it is a kind of an upgrade which might be technically indented from MSIP I need a verification whether they had been appl
  8. Hello All, I am starting a new model of F-15C in 1/48th scale. I am going to use the Hasegawa model kit. For that I also have the Bullseye 48-008 Desert Storm Eagles decal sheet. Since I was thinking about doing a BT or CR tail coded plane I realised that those are non-MSIP aircrafts. What I do understand from that information is: - No digital screen at the left of instrument panel and although not related to MSIP - No bumb on the right tail bottom But I am not sure whether the chaff/flare system had been installed or not as the experts alread
  9. The radome might have lightning stripes and the gun cover should have the dedicated antenna for RF-4EJ. IMHO those details could only be replicated by having new parts as they are very small to be added as add-on parts to the old(!) ones.
  10. 🤤💓 I wish that someone comes with the decals in a popular scale;)
  11. Good morning, I have realized that they have two holes inside the air intakes on the upper edges. They are like the location pin holes ready to be drilled out for the long thin antennas that the Navy version and Greek type carry. Any idea anout this? Would any of You bet on for a Navy or a Greek version? All the best,
  12. Interestingly the fuselage panel lines are very thin; way thinner than the F-14 kit. Kind of like the new Zvezda models but in this case all of them do appear.(Unfortunately the lines at new Zvezda models are kind of disappeared due molding process I think) As stated in the video of HLJ the model might be finished during the weekend, of course for average and above modellers.
