This is the 1/48 Academy kit of a F-15E Strike Eagle from 492nd FS (RAF Lakenheath), depicted as deployed to Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, 2006, hence a little dirtier than at home.
Except for a few RBF tags, everything is OOB.
Those of you who’ve seen my other builds may note that this is pretty much the first jet offering – pilots strapped across jet-cans aren’t really my thing – but as Lakenheath mudhens fly in pairs over my house almost daily, I went over to the dark side on this occasion.
