Reveal - Tamiya 1/32 F-15E Strike Eagle

A superb kit, this one, building into a seriously imposing model. This is a commission built for a customer who used to fly these things.

One of the few criticisms of the kit is the provision of a single centre line fuel tank which is a configuration that was rarely used. I added two wing tanks from GT Resin (best avoided if possible) and two AIM-120 missiles from Flightpath to give a more realistic load out configuration.

Otherwise, this kit is Tamiya at its predictable best. Crisp and detailed mouldings that fit together perfectly. I added the Eduard interior and exterior sets which nicely dress up the cockpit and spent many hours putting together the fine burner can detail but it was worth the effort.
