Tamiya #60304 box art
One of my favorite jets, and many pilots have said the finest "pilot-flown" aircraft to come from the drawing boards of any design shop in the world, the F-15 Eagle, after more than 35 years in service (counting from its first flight), continues to be a formidable presence in the Air Superiority role.

This section contains photos of a project I completed for a friend of mine - Tamiya kit #60304.  Long in the tooth (the kit, not the friend...) but still an outstanding model.  So nice, in fact, that I have two more in my stash, one of which is earmarked to be built as an aggressor in the cool blue/grey paint scheme.  Use the "Section Pages" menu at lower left to view all the pages in this section.

For this project, in addition to the excellent (though not perfect!) Tamiya kit, I used the following aftermarket add-ons:

  • Eduard photo-etch and masks
  • Cutting Edge 'burner cans
  • HobbyDecal dry-transfer stencils
  • Custom-made markings

Since this model is destined for the shelf of a long-time friend, it received the "full treatment."  Overall a very satisfying project.  It is interesting to note that while the kit itself is of typical Tamiya quality, it does require significant TLC to correct some fit issues which  on a smaller-scale model would be much more easily remedied.  Even the perfect 1/32nd scale has drawbacks...
