First model finished in 20+ years
Posted by LC34 on Saturday, February 10, 2018 10:05 AM

This is the Revell F-15e me and my son finally finished today. 

F-15e

Well we still have to mount it on a stand and add some effects for the missile firing but the main model is done.  

No landing gear as we are making it in flight, I screwed up and grabbed a "wet look" laquier for it instead of a plain clear look, but its ok.  The canopy was cracked in box, and Im not well rehersed in fixing that but I know I could have.  All in all he just wanted his model done.  It was also the first time I used a marker on panel lines, I had never done that before and I like it.

One more note, this was also the very first time I had the oppertunity to work with putty in the seams, I wish I had know about this stuff 20 years ago.  Fun build with my son, I think next we want to go super big, like battleship Arizona 1/200 scale big Surprise  I just hope if we do it, I dont screw it up and do it well for the men it represents.

It's because you have to pay Photobuckets ransom for third party hosting. Try another photo hosting site and you'll be good to go. Other then that for first in 20 years it looks great

Ok thanks Rambo never used a photo site before.

Thanks for the kind words, a lot of mistakes, a lot of new stuff for me and expecially him, but I like the look of awe he had when we finally finished it.  I think we got another one hooked in the hobby.
