Academy 1:48 F-15E

February 12, 2014 in Aviation

Hello everybody!
This is my last build, the huge Strike Eagle. Buildind this beast took some time, dry fitting, sanding and filling is essential to achieve a decent finish, especially on intakes and fuselage-wings join.
The weapon loadout is huge in this kit: there is a lot of ordnance you can fit to the aircraft. I choose this asimetrical loadout I saw on the web.
The model was painted with Gunze aqueous and weathered with oils.
Hope you like it even though the quality of the pictures.

Best wishes:
