F-15E Strike Eagle (unpainted) by Revell in 1/72

December 1, 2022 · in Aviation · · 11 Comments


I got this kit after building the Italeri F-15C Eagle (in pink because my daughter chose the colour and she didn't think I would). The Italeri kit is okay but I wanted to try another so bought 's new tooling. This is a big improvement on Italeri's kit and the decal sheet is really great quality.

However while doing some on-line research I came across images if the new F-15EX () along with one picture of an unpainted and thought it would be fun to try that instead. The final scheme is a bit of a fusion of the two.

Anyway, I learned a fair bit and hopefully increased my skills a bit.

Have Fun.
