"McDonald Douglas F-15C"
skippykeesler (Worden 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.

"1/48 Tamiya F-15C Eagle"
Christopher A. Wing (Fresno, CA)
The Tamiya 1/48 F-15C Eagle is an excellent kit with quality molded parts that have deep recessed panel lines that will readily take a panel wash. Each landing strut has an internal metal rod installed inside of them to increase the strength of these parts. A full complement of Aim missiles, Sidewinder missiles and three external fuel tanks are provided. Unfortunately, the wheels are not molded in a weighted configuration, so the builder may opt for resin after market wheels. The decals are thick, but will adhere to the model with some Microset decal setting solution. I opted for the Gulf Spirit version of this aircraft because I liked the Eagle head decals on the inner surfaces of the vertical tail planes. Unfortunately no black stripe decals are provided for the missles and so I manually painted them on. I used light ghost gray and dark ghost gray Vallejo Acrylic Paint which was applied using an Iwata HPC airbrush with a 0.3 mm needle. A panel wash was applied to the model with Tamiya Black Panel Liner. My go to glues are Tamiya Extra Thin liquid Cement and Regular Tamiya liquid Cement which has a slightly slower curing time. I also added the 1/48 Aires F-15C Late Exhaust Nozzles set that is designed for the Hasegawa F-15C kit. Therefore, additional sanding and fitting of the Tamiya kit parts was necessary. In my opinion these after market resin parts make this kit into something special. Overall I highly recommend this kit due to it's reasonable price point and ready availability.

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.

 
"Pretty nice kit."
cva2201
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.
