1/48 promodeller F-15E


Recommended Posts

This is one of the kits I am currently working on. It is the monogram Pro-modeller F-15E. I plan on using the kit decals and finishing it as the tiger meet bird. I am not sue on weapons right now but think I may go with som Mk.82's to compliment the GBU-10's that are in the kit. I will make a final decision closer to the end of the build.

 

right now the cockpit is painted gray, as well as the black areas around the cockpit and the wheels. I also painted the landing gears bits white...but those pictures will be in my next update.

I'll be watching... after returning to the hobby and completing the Tamy 1/48 F-14A, I had to decide on my next build. The F-15 or A-6 in the same scale, the Intruder won the coin toss.

Consider me as an interested spectator! Enjoy the build

Some more progress!

 

 I have been focusing on the other builds as I knew this would more or less fall into place, and for the most part it has. I have the cockpit finished and weathered,  and got the nose glued together. I got the intakes done, including using the latex paint method for the interior, and I have to say, I am happy with the look. in the last picture you can see the rear fuselage being glued together. 

 

 up till now, and not pictured, Igot the nose attached to the rear half, and got the wings glued on. Not happy with some of the gaps, but you will have to wait unitl the next updated for those...

Some more (slow) progress.

 I now have the fuselage glued together and everything coated in a layer of primer. Just some smaller bits and then I will be ready for pre-shading and a coat of paint. I had some trouble getting the outer wings on properly and they needed quite a bit of putty and I am still not happy with them. Also had issues with the CFT's, they were badly twisted and took some effort to get them on straight.

Hi Sean, I tried different browsers but except for the photos in the very first post, I couldn't seem to open the rest.  I wonder if that's true for the other guys.

I dont know. I recently had my site upgraded to an https, but now this is happening. I may have to go onto the tech support and get it figured out. 
 

thanks for letting me know.
