F-15G
« on: October 09, 2009, 07:55:53 pm »
In a frantic attempt of actually finish a few models for a sense of completion on some level with all of the WIP I've got going, I've added a second completed model to the shelf in 2 days.

Believe it or not, I've got a basic story to go with it.

In the days ahead, as space becomes a part of "air superiority", there became a need to quickly put small GPS and spy sats in orbit to replace those that have been destroyed by hunter/killer sats. Several F-15s where retro fitted to to reach higher altitude at a very quick rate and launch mini-Pegasus missiles to insert their cargo at a moments notice once a satillite was found to be out of action. Here is the F-15G. It's an Academy F-15 in 1/144. I made the missiles myself.

Very nice! :thumbsup: Really like the F-15's looks with the canted vertical stabs. The missiles are pretty cool, too.
Cheers,
Moritz


Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Production F-15SE?  Like it! :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Wicked, Eddie! I really like how a slight modification can change the entire look of an aircraft. The canted tail feathers are truly inspired and the burner cans and tinted canopy are an excellent enchancement!

Another winner all the way!

Once again the K.I.S.S. approach has won out.  Nice work and a simple enough conversion.  Definitely reduces the work load when your are using 1/144th scale for your projects.

Nice kit bash, Eddie.  Nice idea for the updated Eagle.

Okay, stop reading my mind, already!!  This is freaky.  I might just e-mail my excel spreadsheet of planned What Ifs and have you highlight the same ones you've also already thought of.  Weird!  Anyhow, good to see the concept in the hands of a styrene master.

Inspiring, as always, even in 1:144 scale, Eddie.    :bow:
