  1. Hello! I’ve always liked Aggressor’s scheme for the Eagles, so as soon I got a F-15C kit, I went after the right decal set for this scale. They’re from Two Bobs and everything else is OOB. I scratch built the ACMI pod from a AIM-9, so this bird is in the normal configuration for ACM training, with the pod and a captive AIM-9. Kit was ok, except for the rear compartment lid that had to be well sanded so the canopy could fit closed, even tough is not perfect. Hope you enjoy! Cheers
  2. Hi all! So I am just now getting to posting pics of a build I completed last month... Anyway, here is my 1/48 Hasegawa F-16D Arctic Aggressor of the 18 AGRS at Eielson AFB, Alaska, 2008. I have always loved this aggressor scheme, and modelling it in a two-seat F-16D variant seemed only right! The Hasegawa F-16 kit is actually quite nice for it's age and very good fit. It is a rather simple kit, not a huge amount of parts really and I enjoyed the build. The F-16D kit I used is an older one, and did not have the correct "wide mouth" intake I needed, so I sourced that from a Hasegawa F-16CJ kit I have. As far as aftermarket, I used a Black Box F-16D cockpit set, Master Model Pitot, the Hasegawa Weapons Set for the ACMI pod and Meng U.S. Weapons Set for the CATM-9. The other sidewinder with no front fins (not sure what this one is called, TBH) is from the kit and just modified by removing the fins and rounding the nose substantially. As for decals, I was used Afterburner Decals Arctic Aggressors set. I got really lucky finding that sheet at a local show for less than $10! I have been very lucky finding rare decal sets at the Cleveland Model Show over the years. Other than that everything else is OOB. Despite the ease of this kit it took me a long time (by my standards) to build due to modelling mojo loss and winter doldrums I suppose. The finished product, while I am happy with it, is not my best work to be sure. Cut a lot of corners and didn't put my usual effort into it. Here is what I used for this build: Kit: 1/48 Hasegawa F-16D FIghting Falcon (06106 V6) Decals: Afterburner Arctic Aggressors (48-034) Aftermarket: Black Box F-16D Cockpit Set, Master Model Pitot, Hasegawa Weapons Set D (X48-8) Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (main aircraft primer base), Tamiya Liquid White Primer (for marble coat), Mr Paint MRP-246 FS36628 Arctic Gray, Gunze Aqueous H317 Dark Gull Gray and H305 Gunship Gray, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, and Clear Green, Gunze Mr Color GX2 Gloss Black (gloss black primer for metalwork) and Alclad II Airframe Aluminum and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash. Now on to the pics!
  3. Hi all! I would like to share my latest completed project, the 1/48 Great Wall Hobby F-15C from the MSIP II ANG boxing. I decided to build it in the fantastic splinter camo markings of the 65th AGRS circa 2013. The camo was done without a mask, using Tamiya tape and just kinda eyeballing it. I started by painting the gray, then masking and painting either the white or blue areas one at a time. Some areas were easier to paint the white over the blue, and others the blue over the white. I used some aftermarket on this one, including a Quickboost seat, Meng CATM Aim-9M from the short range weapons kit, and the ELTA-8222 and ACMI pods from the Meng long range weapons set. For decals, I actually had three options to choose from, the Two Bobs "Digital Flanker" set, Afterburner "65th Aggressors" sheet, and the Speed Hunter Graphics "Elegant Eagles" sheet. I wanted to do Blue 94, so that eliminated the Afterburner sheet which does not include that option. Between the Two Bobs sheet and the SHG sheet, the color saturation and stencils were nicer on the SHG sheet, and being Cartograf printed sealed the decision for me. This is the second time using SHG decals (F-4G was the other), and they performed fantastically once again. Big fan of their products! The GWH kit is much lauded, and for good reason. It is just a fantastically detailed kit, and fit is generally excellent throughout. Rear fuselage and intakes take the most care, but nothing major to note. Here is what I used on this build: Kit: 1/48 Great Wall Hobby F-15C Eagle MSIP II ANG boxing Decals: Speed Hunter Graphics "Elegant Eagles" sheet Aftermarket: Quickboost Ejection Seat, Meng Short-Range Weapons Set, Meng Long-Range Weapons Set Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), ModelMaster FS35109 International Blue, Gunze Aqueous FS 36118 Gunship Gray, Mr Paint FS 36251 Aggressor Gray and FS 36628 White Gray, Tamiya Rubber Black, Clear Red, Clear Yellow, and Smoke, and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, and Burnt Iron. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. Molotow Liquid Chrome also used. Mig Ammo Deep Gray panel wash. Without further ado, here are the pics, hope you like!
  4. Hi guys, I'm urgently looking for the Afterburner decal sheet "48-081 - F-15 C/D Eagle 65th Aggressor Squadron". If someone out there is willing to sell please let me know. Cheers, Jost
  5. Here's Tamiya's lovely F-16C, with parts from the Thunderbirds kit to turn it from block 52 to block 30. I have always loved the blue "Flanker" camo, so will be using TwoBobs' Blue Fox Bandits 32-051 sheet along with an ALQ-188 pod from Aires. Paints are Model Master enamels: FS36270 Neutral Gray lightened a bit, Flanker Medium Blue #2131, and FS35109 Blue. The drop tank on the table is a paint and decal test - I know the real planes carry standard-color tanks and pylons. Still need to make a CATM-9 Sidewinder practice round and an ACMI pod. The kit includes blanking plates for the outer underwing stations, so I have those plugged and left the innermost holes, just in case I ever want to have it carrying tanks.
