Hi guys, I`m in What can i say, party non stop! The history is easy - i just finished my best model so far (F-35B - here and there) and now i just get started with a very special kit - F-15E in 1/32. This is a story from about a couple of weeks ago. In the beginning i did not wanted to join the forum, because i will probably never build another 1/32nd scale kit, because i`m kinda stuck in the 1/48. However, i`m thinking - well, it may be just the one and only in 1/32 but it will definitely take a lot of time, so why not. And this is it the Kit or at least a photo of the manual the box can`t fit in the "photo boot" .
This is my first try in this 1/32 scale. The last year i made F-15C in 1/48 - here it is with just the bottom fuselage of this kit for a surrealist comparison:
Next is something like a short overview of what i`ve started with within these two/three weeks:
- of course - the rubber and the metal parts - my first experience with such parts:
Here the wheel looks so flat with just about a half of the total weight of the model. Now the both main landing gears are done. The tires are so flat, because it turned them from the inside out, then cut a big piece of rubber and then returned them in their normal position. The "air bubble" inside makes a soft spot that is just enough to make the tire look flat.
Btw I`m planning to make this plane quite e-motion-al The wheels are rotating and the break disk are greased for a smoother rotation. The landing gears retract in the bays and the bay doors can close and open...
