  1. Great work - this dio looks highly realistic. Pose it right outside at "magic hour" and it would looke real.

  2. Great looking diorama, Anthony.

  3. This is a wonderfully made and very realistically looking diorama, Anthony!
    The many labor hours you put into it are evident: a diorama full of activity, with a lot of great details.
    I had the pleasure to follow along your build.

  4. I've been looking forward to seeing the finished diorama, and what a treat it is, all the details really show off the F-15 beautifully, definitely liked.

  5. I agree with the above comments, however your canopy does not fit properly! You should fix the problem by attaching it in its' "OPEN" position. I had this problem 30 years ago, so I placed all of my prop and jet canopies in their open position.
    I built models for clients from 1977 until 2016 and learned a great deal about model building by becoming a local, regional and IPMS/USA judge. RJW: [email protected].

  6. All that work paid off! A great-looking model, and excellent diorama. Well done.

  7. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
    Very well accomplished composition for this diorama Anthony.

  8. This an excellent dio/build, great job!The caption of the two mechanics at the nose landing gear could be.. " But I thought you tightened that hydraulic line." If you ever do a 1/48th Phantom I can tell you where to put the hydraulic leaks.

  9. Slick looking F-15E and a great diorama. All those moths of work really paid off handsomely in the end. Are these guys going off SCUD hunting in the Gulf War?
