Spotlight Review

"Kind of disappointing"
I've had good luck with Tamiya in the past but I'm pretty disappointed with this model. There are some pretty big fit issues with the fuselage that will take a significant amount of putty to fix. Second, the cockpit detail is pretty horrible - just decals with almost no plastic detail. Also, they forgot to put a notch for the throttle to be placed into (not a huge issue but indicative of the lack of overall quality). They also spend a lot of effort to give detail that will be covered up in the body and nose of the plane. All and all, not that great of a model.

"Pretty nice kit."
This is a pretty nice kit that's not too expensive. It went together fairly easily and with very few problems. The only fitment issue I found was in assembling the nose as the radome did not line-up perfectly, probably because the nose section didn't fit together quite right. But after assembly and painting, it is not noticable unless you pick-up the finished model and look at it closely. The other issue I found was that this kit uses the older style exhaust nozzles with the turkey feathers instead of the later style nozzles I was hoping for. The cockpit detail was created by the use of decals and is thus pretty sparse, but with the pilot figure in the cockpit and the canopy closed, it's not really visible anyhow. I was pleasantly suprised that the kit included parts to build the model with deployed or retracted landing gear and included parts for closed gear doors. I wish all companies would do this as I'm one of those that builds all my kits with closed canpies and gear doors and uses flight stands. I used four AIM-120C AMRAAMs from a Hosegawa weapons set to replace the four AIM-7 Sparrows included in the kit for the under fusilage mountings and an aftermarket decal set to build an aircraft from the 159th FS/125th FW FANG out of Jacksonville IAP (my hometown ANG unit when I was growing up) and am very happy with the final results.

"Good bang for the bucks"
In the process of building this kit now. Best thing about it is cost. I was a little disappointed in the external detail. The panel lines are shallow and sparse compared to other Tamiya models I've built.

"Tamiya 1/48 F-15C"
The Tamiya 1/48 F-15C is a high ranking kit in itself. Although the cockpit and exhaust are somewhat sparse, with some care it can build up to a great kit. The fit is excellent. The decals are also pretty high quality.
