Can't wait for this one,i'll preorder 2 as soon as one of the mail order firms list it....... Now if only i could get somebody to do Soesterberg Wolfhound F-15 decals as i've given up all hope of Daco/Astra ever releasing their sheet.

I'm not up to snuff on F-15 shapes but is there a fairing under the wing joint to the fuse? I thought it just butted straight in.


There's a flat/angled fairing, having a hard time finding a decent pic on the net. Here's a link to a Very Large image that may help show it. FAST packs cover this area so the wing looks like it butts straight in to the FAST pack.

I certainly hope that they fixed the issues that were pointed out in the previous thread before they cut the molds.

I'm hoping against hope that the finished mold will be very close the CAD shots. If so we won't need AM stuff for it(looking at the cockpit specifically). Any possibilities for a pure "C". IMHO Revell has pretty much locked up the "E" in quailty and affordability.

An A/C would be fantastic. I mean, Hasegawa's is nice but having a single seater to the same standards as the MiG-29 would just be fantastic

It has a separate forward fuselage so an A/C is inevitable, plus they'd be insane not to do one.

For an accurate A model they would need to modify the aft fuselage as well, not just put a singles seater nose barrel on an aft fuselage for a C/D.
Check it When it is released, I guess ICANN be the ultimate critic on theF-15

The major difference would be the aft speedbrake fairing, this is a major noticeable sufferance between the A /B and C/D models.
The whole fairing would be different but that part would be the most noticeable.
Overly critical would be panel arrangement, I for one probably will not break out my panel charts but.....
Depending on time frame the JFS exhaust on the belly would have the louvred. They had the louvred till after the storm, same goes with pnl 128 (hook fairing).
Let me think, it's been awhile but just those came to mind.
Cheers

They'll do single seat version. Yes, I am helping them to develop this project. And the tier one version of test-shot just arrived. I can not upload pics yet, but all I can say is that what good you've seen on the CAD pic is all there, what wrong on the CAD will be solved in tier two test-shot

Regards,
Jin

Jin! That's great news! So the 2nd tier test shot will have the proper orientation for those topside intake vents?

Would you mind posting any updates in this thread so info can remain consolidated?

The vent problem is already solved in tier one, in tier two we'll continue some other minor mistakes.
I'll keep you updated when I have something in this thread.

Dose the brake fairing only matter on the very early type of A/B? Current A/B's just look like same as C/D's.

All through the A/B model carreer this fairing was not changed, the aft fairing you show on the CAD is the C/D model.

The Blow in Doors look correct, flush when engines are running but droop when Hydraulic pressure is lost after shutdown. What do you see that is wrong?
We would be able to push them to check the FOD screen underneath on BPO.

I think Kitty Hawk has them backwards.

What??? And leave nothing for the "experts" to complain about?

Good luck to GWH on this series, hope it sells well for them.
