It is F-15E, which I made in February 2015. It is a jet fighter I made for the first time in a while.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 BOX PACKAGEI play flight shooting games occasionally, and now I’m interested in jet fighters recently. Speaking of the lead status of the jet fighter, I think it’s an F-15 and have begun to touch this kit. I wondered whether the 1/72 scale suited the beginner and chose this Hasegawa kit. It’s straightforward to pick up in Japan.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 COCKPITIt is a double-seat-type cockpit. The instruction manual indicates that sharpen molds before attaching decals or paint on these molds remaining. I remain molds and attached decals with a softer decal; it’s the best, easy, and most realistic. Additional light detail up, I made seat belts from board weight, and I painted emergency levers.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 MAKINGBy the way, the jet engine nozzle was divided into many parts and was difficult to assemble. I’m anxious to build till I finish up without the imagination of combining many unfamiliar parts. I may throw it on the way and close this page in case of failure…

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 MAKINGThis body looks like the lump of two big jet engines and a tiny cockpit in a small space; it’s an image of a beginner’s outlook. Wings virtually grow from the engines. I understand the situation this plane has over the supersonic speed. It is a terrible body, an excellent mechanism.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 MAKINGI decided to have three tanks. Pile up 12 cluster bombs; 600 gallons? 610 gallons?

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 MAKINGCanopy masking is easier than WWII planes. Is it a thrilling time when we peel off masking after painting?

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 PAINTINGI painted gray FS36118. It’s getting closer to my image of the F-15.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 PAINTINGI gave fading expression on the light gray brighter than a former color. It’s perfect, as it’s my first time trying the shade effect.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 PAINTINGI masked it for the metal-colored painting of the jet engine part. It is quite a complex shape masking…

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 PAINTINGI added air-to-air missiles Sidewinder beside two belly tanks. This is HASEGAWA 1/72 in action series aircraft weapon III U.S. air-to-air missile set.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 PAINTINGBecause the rough painting was completed, I attached decals. There are lots of them, thirty times as many as tank model decals. Oh, as for the AFVs, weathering paint takes a lot of time.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 PAINTINGIt’s almost completed. It’s hard to attach many small decals, cluster bombs, and Sidewinders. I suppose the blue lines are means for drilling, and yellows are live ammunition.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKF-15E is a world-famous multi-role fighter. Many people have heard the name “Eagles,” even though they are not modern fighter jet fans. This is Strike Eagle, and “Strike” is the meaning of the fighter that the ground attack is possible.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKThe maximum bomb load is 11 tons. I am amazed to learn that there is more than the maximum amount of 9 tons of the B-29 Superfortress. This fighter experienced the actual fighting of the Middle Eastern “Desert Storm,” the Kosovo conflict, and many other operations.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKAfter having painted in a primary color, I sprayed slightly bright gray as a fading expression at random. Then, I put many decals and shading panel lines with washing.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKIt is not a fantastic colored body, but various characters are marked on it. This marking is U.S. Air Force, 4th FW, 336th FS, ROCKETEERS (SJ336FS).

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKThe “Wing” is a unit of strategy and tactics, and under the Wing is a “Group”; under the Group is a “Squadron.” I could imagine the U.S. Air force’s tremendous military power that Air Wings are several hundred deployed worldwide.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKIt wasn’t easy to make the engine perfect circle by assembling it. I painted these engines with gradation with some colors.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKConsidering the airflow in operation, I did the washing effect backward.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKBecause I needed to get some adjusting undersurface when I attached Sniper advanced targeting pod AAQ-33 and navigation pod AAQ-13, I have attached them before painting. I did not work well assembling.
After using the kneaded eraser with the masking of the landing gear compartment, it seems to become hard sticking after leaving for a long time. It’s easier to cover the compartment if closing a cover when I spray.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKI suppose the bomb and missile line decals are difficult to attach neatly. In that case, I could have the option to use masking and airbrush painting.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKI feel the body’s appearance is more realistic after weathering in the panel lines. Mold lines should have been recarved the slight part.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKA real-thing-like atmosphere in the cockpit despite being 1/72. I polished the canopy much, but dust stands out in this zoomed-up shot.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKI opened a canopy and worried about strength. It’s fun to see the cockpit panel in various ways when I peep over.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKShot from the front, I can see the seat strap by myself.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKThe additional armament was equipped with four sidewinders AIM-9L from aircraft weapon series three released by Hasegawa. It’s called a super sidewinder, and it’s a third-generation one. The performance of the infrared sensor improved, and the attack from all directions was enabled.

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKI did not make a comparison object of the size this time, but the Eagle of 1/72 was approximately 18cm. Unfortunately, the assembly finishing up of the right conformal fuel tank did not go well. I think it’s rough…

F-15E STRIKE EAGLE HASEGAWA 1/72 FINISHED WORKIt’s cool when I look at the distance of around 40cm But looking at 10cm, there are many improvement points. The work on the assembling stage was challenging for me. I wonder if it’s becoming used to the process after a couple of jet plane-making. Anyway, it’s a fresh and fantastic experience. I want to try other jet planes next time.
