Spanjaard that is a nice and even coat of black primer... looking excellent!

Björn Svedberg Looks really nice so far! Taking a seat. :)

Dan Cook UMP Black Primer is awesome!
12. May at 09:47:08
Sören Reifert Looks good so far, but I think the chipping is maybe to much on the wings and tail - in my opinion.

Dan Cook Looking for it to be bashed up. Will weather it down a little more. We live and we learn.

Fabian D. Nice work so far.

You will however have trouble fitting tose tracks, as they are the early 38cm and not the 40cm ones you'd need for this model.
IIRC the Miniart tracks only fit Pz. III A-H, Pz IV A-E and StuG 0, A and early B.
20. May at 11:34:43
Dan Cook Is it Fruils I need?
20. May at 11:55:59
Fabian D. Not necessarily. Judging by this picture,[img1] those should be fine as well:

40cm Steel Tracks for late P...IV (AFV Club AF35179, 1:35)



Although the variant with the open guide horns seems to be more common, so PZ III/IV (Friulmodel ATL-04, 1:35)
or
Tracks for Pz.Kpfw.III , Pz... (MasterClub MTL35008, 1:35)

would be the only ones I can find via scalemates search engine.

Michael Phillips Oooh, count me in! I have this kit coming up in my queue before too long. Interested to see how go about this.
Looking good so far Dan!
26. August 2017 at 02:50:09
Dan Cook I have the nice Caracl decals. Should be a MSIP II however, not counting the rivets and going to build it as is. There is a Wolfpack conversion but cannot find one as they are out of production. Like hen's teeth!
Trying to find a colour for the compartment behind the cockpit. Metallic blue colour? Only have Vallejo Model Air and some Tamiya. On the Tamiya version of the F-15C is says X-13?
Going to try your technique with to try and get things seamless on the intakes. However, there are some annoying location tabs inside the intakes. Hopefully you will not see them!
26. August 2017 at 10:01:00
Dan Cook Found out from a US friend who worked on Eagles at Lakenheath/Mildenhall that after 1980 the avionics bays were painted white not the elusive blue green metallic colour. Phew. That was starting to stress me out! Good old XF-2.
26. August 2017 at 10:47:14
Sarunas D Looks good. How is the intake fit?
30. August 2017 at 14:32:05
Dan Cook Its good if a little fiddly. There was a little bit of flash on the model and with Hasegawa hard plastic it effects he fit a lot. So some time with a Citadel seem line remover and sanders and they sit fairly well. Going to have to fill the joins. Considering being lazy and putting FOD covers on as the inside of the intakes have a lot of lumps and bumbs on them. Including the locating pins. Why they did not put them on the outside of the intakes I do not know!
30. August 2017 at 14:48:15
Dan Cook Just seen some FOD covers by QMT going to use them rather than mess with the intakes.
30. August 2017 at 18:16:20
Sarunas D Probably a better idea. I once made an intake cover from paper towel, aluminium foil, and water with white glue. Looks great and easy to make. There was an article somewhere on ARC Air Center.
30. August 2017 at 18:32:54
Dan Cook Just means I do not have to mess about painting and filling and all that. Can build and leave them pretty rough. Means I can get on too. Would have been a lot of boring work to get them seamless. You know if it needs any weight in the nose?
30. August 2017 at 18:39:49
Sarunas D Yes, it does need weight in the nose. Hasegawa 1/72 F-15D/DJ manual tells to add 3g weight to the nose cone. So it's going to be more for a 1/48 kit.
I'm also planning to cover the intakes on my Tamiya 1/32 Tomcat. When intakes and the lower fuselage are assembled, insides look very strange. So I decided to use the limited time and energy for more visible assemblies of the kit.
30. August 2017 at 18:44:37
Dan Cook Might have to mock up before I put the cockpit halves together to test it. Will start with 15 grams I think.
30. August 2017 at 18:47:03
Dan Cook No weight needed It sits pretty well. might just chuck 5 grams in just to be safe.

Dan Cook Got a GWH F-15 so changing the project to an earlier Eagle.

Clifford Keesler You both could fool me on your dislikes, by the caliber of your work. I myself love cockpits, I think they are the thing I do best. Though I am getting more confident with the airbrush, I think the 104 I am building now is my best paint job so far. I know I need to get some Pic's up, I will tomorrow LOL.

25. February at 18:57:30
Dan Cook Thomas the cockpit is a little simple but it is not that visible and I am going to close the canopy. It is a bit of a mojo builder. Got bogged down in a load of builds recently. Just can't seem to finish them. Have a 5 month old and 3year old. Keep getting in the way. Not able to get a good run on a kit. So I keep biting and bobbing.

Clifford Keesler Dan, I deepened mine,as they are a little shallow. I did not find out until I put the primer on.
