1/48 Revell F-15E Strike Eagle

Recommended Posts

I finished this quite a few months ago. But I was faffing around with backgrounds trying to get some decent photos. Finally got something  I liked.

 

All the details of the build and my thoughts on the kit are at my blog

 

But in summary.  Good kit but showing it's age. I'm happy with most of it bar the exhausts (For such a prominent feature I didn't do a good job on them) and the canopy (crap design). 

Lots of photos at the blog but here's a couple of photos

Very nice Calum :thumbsup2:

 

Did you scratch build the AOA sensor cover or does it come as part of some sort of set?

It's part of a old Two Mikes set Ray

Excellent job, wow !! Nice touch adding all the RBF streamers in their proper locations as well. I especially like that you added the target detector covers over the influence fuse windows. LOVE the Mudhen !!

That's really nice. It's good to see the Revell kit built up so nicely. Hard to beat that kit for bang for buck. :thumbsup:

Looks great. The rbf tags and the seeker covers add a lot to the presentation. I need to look into those too.

Nice build!  Only question I have is where did you find the covers for the air sensors on the fuselage and the burner cans?

 

Never seen the red covers for the fuselage sensors before.

 

Thanks!

Beautiful Mud Hen! Can you tell us about the base you used? That looks really nice too.

They were a set from Two Mikes Resin. I think they aren't available any more

The base is a exterior floor tile painted grey with a hardstanding pattern drawn on it

There's nothing wrong with the canopy and the exhaust that I can see. 
The overall finish is beautiful and the base really ties it all together.

Nice photography to show it all off too. Level 11 mate!
