Today is the 19th Anniversary of the 9/11 attack. It’s hard to believe that 19 years have since gone by.
I have had these Bob’s 9/11 decals for a long time now. As a retired Firefighter /EMT and LEO, I have always wanted to build some sort of tribute to honor the persons who lost their lives on this tragic day. The world was forever changed that morning.
There is no better time than now to start these two tribute builds.
Here’s the F-15E kit I will be using.
I have been working on another one of these models as part of the Desert Storm group build. It is going together very well. I am looking forward to building up this one too.
Here are the two decal sheets I will be using. This one is for the F-15E.
and a detail photo showing the FDNY 9/11 tribute. There’s another F-15E that was painted up to honor the NYPD. If I ever get another one of these models, I’ll be sure to build it too. This second plane, marked to honor the NYPD, is also included in the decal set.
I’ll be using one of these Revell F-16 models.
I’m not very knowledgeable about the different variants of the Falcon. My area of expertise is with the older WW1 through most of the Korean War aircraft. I’m not sure if these Monogram kit will make a proper version of the plane shown in the decal set.
Speaking of decals, here’s what I will be using for the F-16.
and a closeup showing the US Flag, the Firefighter and the Soldier.
So please follow along with me as I start yet another pair of planes………….
