GWH 1/72 F-15C Eagle


Recommended Posts

Evening all,

Fresh off the bench and wrapping up my 48FW Theme build is the stunning GWH 1/72 F-15C Eagle. Perhaps even nicer then their F-15E I started this project with, the fit and detail is incredible, with just a touch of filling and sanding required here and there. Decals were mostly courtesy of Caracal with a few of the kit decals used here and there. I also added Eduard Brassin AIM-120Cs, omitting the fins for training rounds, and a 3D printed ACMI pod by Transport Wings, to replicate a typical training loadout as carried by this jet when I visited Lakenheath last Autumn. Painted as always using Hataka Orange Line- very impressed with their colour matches for the Mod Eagle scheme- with Alclad used on the exhaust areas. Unusually for me, I'm actually very pleased with the final result!

What an excellent collection, I'd be delighted with them sitting on my shelf. Your F-15C is wearing possibly the nicest example of ANY grey paint scheme I have ever seen on a model. I struggle to get the balance between shading and colour saturation right on all grey schemes but you have hit the nail on the head there, lovely work.

I'm sticking to jets that were based at Lakenheath, which I don't believe is the case with those two?

Thanks Duncan, very humbled by that. I always try and strike a balance between realism and artistic license when modulating my paintwork, usually leaning towards the latter for added interest, but am very pleased with the effect here. In fact I actually find it easier on grey, monochromatic schemes where the effects can be more noticeable
