1/48 Revell F-15E Strike Eagle was created by Calum
I finished this quite a few months ago. But I was faffing around with backgrounds trying to get some decent photos. Finally got something  I liked.



All the details of the build and my thoughts on the kit are at my blog


But in summary.  Good kit but showing it's age. I'm happy with most of it bar the exhausts (For such a prominent feature I didn't do a good job on them) and the canopy (crap design). 

Lots of photos at the blog but here's a couple of photos

Nice work Calum.The shading and weathering gives the model just the right lift.

Nice work. The paint work does a nice job of breaking up the solid grey. :)

Fine work indeed. A lot of finesse to the ordinance. The GBU's and Sidewinders really help make the model pop.

I've got this kit aswell, Calum, but have fought shy of building it as I'm stuck to find a way of making a plain monotone grey aircraft 'interesting' - one day I'll figure-it-out. Really like what you've done with yours, matey... excellent finish.
