F-15I Ra am (1:144 scale, Revell)
Posted by marcopreto on Thursday, January 13, 2022 10:53 AM

Here are some photos os a model already completed late in 2020!

It's a F-15I Ra'am, built using The 1:144 scale F-15E kit from Revell, with BrenGun's canopy, Heroes Models resin exhaust nozzles and a few other scratch built bits to complete the modification.







Cheers

Bow Down

Can't imagine getting that kind of finish on a kit that small.

Great Job!

Wow!  You did a great job, and the scheme looks awesome.  Did you do any surgery on the kit?  The shape looks so good for a 1/144 kit.  Thanks for sharing.

You show how nice one can make a model in such a small scale.  I like it.

It's superb.  I agree with the rest of the responses about the finish.  the camo pattern is perfect.  
What color green is that?

Exceptional work, truly beautiful!

It brings me joy that 'modern' 1/144 kits are being crafted to be true, accurate and detailed models...as compared to the old 'misshapen lumps' that so many of the ancient Crown-era kits were. This scale can yield truly jewel-like results...like yours...with a bit of patience and TLC.

Thank you all for your kind comments!

 

The model (Revell's F-15E) is indeed a very noce model. Replacing the canopy for a vac formed item (I've used one from Brengun) helps to improve its looks (I guess it is the only major thing one can do to improve its looks).

The green is a mixture of Mr color c314 and c312 (10:1 ratio aproximatly) trying to replicate FS34424 color that I do not have in any brand.

 

You can check its build and painting stages in my blog (I made two small posts regarding this model).
Here are the links for the two blog posts:
