  1. So apparently, this trend on deployed Strike Eagles with nose art is going to continue, and in a big way! My humble side hustle, Third Offset Designs, is proud to present our second print capturing the heritage of OPERATION INHERENT RESOLVE deployed F-15Es, this time from the 391st Fighter Squadron. This print will be available starting Wednesday, March 13th, from Third Offset Designs. Here's a quick preview video of the print, and some of the artwork. I'll add a full size picture once the print is on sale: 391st EFS - OPERATION INHERENT RESOLVE Also, if you hadn't checked us out for a while, we've got a few new Maquette prints, which are 11x17" single subjects, including The USN Legacy Hornet Sundown, an RCAF print for the 2018 CF-18 NORAD 60th Anniversary Demo, and another 366FW F-15E for the Mountain Home 75th Anniversary celebration. Check 'em out, they're pretty cool. Thanks for looking!
  2. Interesting piece of history I just discovered while reading William L. Smallwood’s book “Strike Eagle: Flying The F-15E In The Gulf War.” On the night of February 13, 1991 a Strike Eagle was on Scud patrol in western Iraq when a transmission from AWACS diverted them on a priority tasking for troops in contact. While receiving the target coordinate information they were cleared to “kill all helicopters.” The result was one Mi-24 Hind being blown to bits while airborne by an LGB dropped right into it’s canopy. Something that has been forever etched into aviation history. Now here’s the part I learned. The calls for help from the guys came from a Special Forces helicopter pilot that was hiding his bird on the ground from the hunting Hinds. That pilot turns out was none other than WO Cliff Wolcott of the 160th SOAR.
  3. This is my first build. Had lots and lots of issues throughout the process, but finally was able to finish it and am pretty happy with the overall results! If you'd like the full backstory on the journey, check out the in progress thread: Enjoy!
  4. Hi all! Here is my 1/48 Revell F-15E Strike Eagle in 90th FS, Elmendorf AFB, Alaska markings. This build took me about 2.5 weeks, and I entered it into my very first judged contest. Won 2nd place in the "1/48 Multi-engine Jets" category. Very happy with that! I had heard the Revell F-15E kit was very nice, and boy was that right! This was easily the nicest and best fitting kit I have built so far (this is my 15th). I am very impressed, too bad there were no bombs included... I had to raid my Hasegawa Weapons Set D for bombs. I used a combination of Repli-Scale, TwoBobs, and kit stencils for this build. Here is what I used on this build: Kit: 1/48 Revell F-15E Strike Eagle Decals: Repli-Scale (main markings), TwoBobs "Anaconda Squeeze" and OOB (stencils) Aftermarket: Legend Productions ejection seats, Hasegawa Weapons Set D Paints: Gunze Mr. Surfacer Black 1500 (primer base), Tamiya White Liquid Primer (for pre-shade stippling), Gunze Aqueous H305 FS36118 Gunship Gray (overall basecoat), Gunze Aqueous H317 FS36231 Dark Gull Gray (cockpit), Gunze Aqueous H327 FS11136 Insignia Red (vert tail stripes), Tamiya smoke (post shading), and Alclad II Gloss Black Primer, Airframe Aluminum, Pale Burnt Metal, Hot Metal Blue, and Jet Exhaust. Future Gloss coat for decals and Future+Tamiya XF-21 Flat Base 6:1 ratio for final matte coat. MIG Deep Gray for panel washes. On to the pics! I hope you enjoy! Thanks for looking!
  5. This kit was an Israel version from Academy, i got it in a cheap price without decals and all weapons, and decided to turn this kit as a E version. Jet itself: academy kit, wings and front fuselage fit poor, I rescribe some panel lines, and add rivets. Bombs and missiles: Kinetic parts, IMO Academy weapons and pods are better fit and detail than kinetic. Decals: Bestfong decals, the film is thin and adhesive is good, but due to different colors, have to add layer and layers for one pattern. Here comes pics, hope you enjoy.
