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

Hello I got this kit after building the 1/72 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 Revell's new tooling. This is a big [...]

1/72 DH.98 Mosquito Matchbox PK-116
