This 1/72 Academy F-15E (No.12550) is a very nice kit. Build this one almost straight from the box but it's a pity that the canopy is a one piece part and the exhaust pipes are a laugh. (What did you do Academy ??) The very sweet Two Bobs 72-109 F-15E Maximum Effort Eagles decal set was used. The aftermarket exhaust pipes are from KA-models and I used plastic seatbelts from Finemolds. The paintjob was done using a pre-shade with Vallejo surface primer acrylics, AK-interactive Panel liner & Xtreme metals for the metal parts, Tamiya acrylics fro the topcoat and weathering pigments (wet applied) for some streaks & stains.
