I look forward to seeing the finished airplane. I occasionally look for possible FL ANG aircraft. Right now, on the shelf I have a T-33 and an F-102. At some point I'll do a FL ANG Mustang.

OK. On the bench: Way too much to build in one lifetime...

OK.. I have wired auto engines, I use BMF on cars, worked with the metal tank tracks, but nothing compares with PE.. The F-15 engine nozzel PE.. like all others its 1st thing in the A.M and I can only manage 25 mins before the shakes and dropping stuff.

my pics.. my hats off to you PE guy's.

love the Eagle.  I'm following this thread.  I was there at MAC (employee) for the rollout, and was impressed by how big it is.  Is the Hasagawa a good kit- do you recommend it?

What paints are you using for the Mod Eagle scheme?  I'm running out of Model Master 36251 and using AK for the Dark Grey.

I'm using vallejo model air,  71.274 = Fs 36251. I like to thin it a bit more with a couple of drops of tamiya thinner. I gave this beast Tamiya gloss clear and time for decals.

Looking great, Nick. YesYes

I forgot to mention how much I like your exhuast nozzles. Those finicky PE pcs really sets them off.

I'm glad you showed your base work for painting. I've been afraid of modern fighters for fear of not really understanding how to break up the paint. Your post helps.

I love F-15's.

Greg. many thanks my camo plan didn't work out so good I had to free hand.

Started the burned metal and nozzels. I began the pin wash back and forth between wash and burnt metal.
