"McDonald Douglas F-15C"
skippykeesler (Edwardsville ILL)
I was a little apperhansive when I first opened this kit. I was expecting more detail in the cockpit area, being that this was a Tamiya kit. Overall the detail in the rest of the kit was very good, with nicely engraved panel lines and rivets. I used the photo-etch cockpit detail set for the Academy F-15C kit, as there was no Tamiya set. The Photo-etch fit like it was made for this kit,with no problems encountered. This set really brought the cockpit to life. The parts fit was excellent. The decal sheet was excellent and offered several aircraft. As I live near STL MO. I chose to use a STL Cardinals commerative aftermarket decal sheet on the model. Overall I am very happy with the way the kit turned out. I would recommend this kit. I would invest in a PE or resin cockpit, as it adds so much to the overall appearance of the model.The kit cockpit offers decals for the instruments.

"Outstanding F-15 model"
kajoe55 (Oklahoma)
I was fortunate in my AF career to work with the F-15s, both stateside with Eglin and Langley and overseas with Bitburg and Soesterberg. Needless to say I think its a beautiful jet and Tamiya's kit is an accurate example of this air superiority fighter. The kit is molded in gray and has very good instructions for assembly. I have been told that if you open a tamiya kit and spill it out on your workbench it will build itself. Well, it might not be that easy, but the fit of the parts and detail is outstanding. During construction I only had one issue - the pilots seat. The instructions show the seat placement but when I installed it I couldn't put the excellent pilot figure in the cockpit. This could be operator error (i.e. modeler error) but no matter what I did the only way to make it work was to put the pilot in the seat and then install the seat. I wanted my Eagle to have all of its fangs so the stores include the jamming pods, AIM-7s and AIM-9s. This kit does not have AIM-120's but I am sure you could find those. I chose decals from the 33rd TFW at Eglin (I was the liaison officer between my unit and the 58th TFS)and the finished kit really looks great even with my average modeling skills. I would highly recommend this kit to modelers with some experience through master modelers as it is a joy to build.

 
"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.

 
"Kind of disappointing"
briand_97
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.
