1/32 Tamiya F-15C Aggressor

Recommended Posts

Dec 1/17

 

Hi All! 

 

At long last, after 22 ½ mths of work, I have finally finished this monster project and I would like to share some pics of the final results.  Although this kit fought me a few times, it was a fairly straightforward build and I have a long Work In Progress thread here at LSP if you want more details:

My only three comments to go with the pics are:

 

1)  I took several pics of this exact Eagle at Nellis AFB during 3 different air shows and it was always spotless- even the tires were shiny.  As a result, the weathering is minimal to match the real deal, other than a little staining on flaps and rudders that are common to all F-15's.

 

2)  The main landing gear on F-15C's toe out quit a bit, as evidenced by the last pic in this first post, so this is normal.

 

3)  "Bay 5", behind the cockpit, is usually green, but F-15's built from 1980 on are white.  As a result, this one (80-0010) is also white.

 

 

Now the pics:

An aboslutely epic build, an exceptionl result, and an unequalled didactic approach throughout of the WiP thread ...

 

Everything to be loved here. I guess « Good Job ! » seems a bit lame, but on the other hand, can there be a greater compliment ?
