This F-15E is finally ready for pics! The build was a real blast and i`m so happy that i shared it with all of you guys! Thank you for all the commenting, liking, advising, critiquing, guiding, etc.! This model probably wouldn`t be the same if i didn`t join the forum.  :bow:  So, a brief overview: 

 

My 1st LSP model, my 3rd model with moveable parts, definitely the most complex and beautiful one. It is still unweathered, so sometimes i should weather it and probably it will look like a completely different model, cause i plan to weather it... sufficiently. :) Until then, enjoy some more overviews. In-flight mode with a loadout of 2 Bunker Busters:

Here is the list with the aftermarket and the other additional parts:
 
- GT Resin sets - antennas, a pod, vents, missile rails, shimmy dampener;
- Custom-made masks from DN models;
- Eduard`s etched masks for the stencils;
- A myriad of leftover PE pieces from other builds;
- Almost every single door is packed with wires and cables - i used mostly 2 sizes of wires;
- Paper tape for reupholstering the seats and for the pilots` suits;
- Indefinite amount and type of plastic and wood parts, magnets, metal rods and other components for the moving parts;
 
And a list with the moveable parts from front to rear:
 
* Openable nose cone;
* The radar dish rotates and turns;
* Openable canopy;
* Retractable nose landing gear with a tire that rotates and openable doors;
* 5 openable avionics nose bays;
* Moveable intake ramps - all of them, including the diffuser ramps;
* Openable bleed air exhaust ramps behind the intake ramps;
* Openable gun bay door;
* Moveable speedbrake;
* Interchangeable weapons for the underwing pylons;
* Retractable MLGs with tires that rotate and openable doors;
* Moveable ailerons;
 

Now the other pics...

Wow, she really came out nice!  I really like the crew, that's one of the best jobs I've seen.  I watched your build thread and the attention to detail is unmatched.  Are you gonna still use the case?

Thanks very much! This is just the warmup :) I hope there will be more pics soon - parked, different loadouts, open doors, etc.

 

Bryan, yes, the case is for safer storage right now, to keep it away from dust. I will need to "paint" the base, add lights on the case, and make some nighttime pics :)))

 

Shawn M, interestingly enough it looks good to me too, as it is. This is the first model that i count ready even without a simple wash, not to mention weathering, OPs, etc. Yet it is something like pre-weathered, due to the pre-shading, the metal coats, and the transparent paint coats.
