Revell F15D/E Eagle Aircraft Model Kit

 

Revell F15 Eagle 1/32

A Revell 1/32 scale F15D/E Eagle model kit

This kit can be built as either a D or E model.

I don't build too many aircraft kits, but this one appealed to me. While Tamiya also makes a 1/32 scale F15, this one was far less money. At the time, dirt cheap for a model in this scale.

The fitment of the parts is fair, and no large issues were encountered. At first I thought the landing gear would not be strong enough to support such a large (heavy) kit, but they've held up during the build (though after a few weeks, they failed, and that will be a fix to deal with later).

The nose has a very basic radar setup, but I glued the nose on anyway. No hinge is supplied to pose it open. I chose the MK2 bombs for the ordinance. I also used the 30mm gun pod.

Once you get to the underside of the model, it can be difficult not to accidentally knock off something already glued on, so be careful there. It's a large kit, and awkward to handle. I use two folded towels to cushion the model upside down to protect the rear tail wings and cockpit, while I attached the lower ordinance.

I painted the cockpit details black, and then used the kit decals over that, I believe it turned out quite well.

The location diagrams for the landing gear are a bit vague, so extra care needs to be taken there.

I chose to only use some of the tiger decals. I wanted a more aggressive look, and I thought the many tiger stripe decals running down the side fuselage (fuel tanks) were to much, and gaudy.

I have limited time, so this took about 3 months for me to build off and on. If you like large aircraft, and you have a place to display them, I recommend this kit, especially as it's a price bargain (till the collectors prices kick in) compared to other large scale aircraft kits out there.
