F15K F15E,K reference.
Posted 07 April 2012 - 10:28 PM
I would like to ask if anybody has any pictures of the F15E,K wheelbay. The reason I ask is I have orderd the modern eagle guide more then a month ago as the site where I orderd it wrote they have it in stock.
After a while I descided to call them as this book was considert unavailable on almost every site I checked and then I heard they could not get this book as it was sold out.
During this time I almost build the entire plane using refrences online the only thing I cant seem to find reference pictures of are the wheelbays and would love to add some detail on the model I am building.
SO if any has any close up or detailed pictures of the wheelbays and wouldn't mind sharing them I would be very thankfull.
some pictures of the model I am building at this moment Revell F15E with a wolfpack F15K conversion kit still work in progress.
The idea came from another builder on this site and just loved it so descided to give it a try myself.
Thank you all,

Some more pictures of the top of the plane with the finished green paintjob.
Also tried to make a picture of the inlet (two tone and the zinc chromate paint is painted 1.5 inches in 1/48 as read on a diff. tread and after that dipped in latex paint and worked out great this time.
Have to say the picture due to the extreme close up and flash makes it look terrible.
When I look at it it looks much better

I looked true the pictures of the F15 and found some more detail shots but of the F15A will compare them with the pictures above and see about the diff.
Have to say did not know that site so thank you for pointing it out deff. a helpfull site.
Will still go and see the info in the isradecal F15I detail book.
Too bad I did not know about this site earlier though for riveting saw some very usefull close ups but I guess I will leave the panel detail on this plane for what I have already done dont want to ruine the paint job now.
The rvieting on these panel were a copy of what I saw Janissary do to his plane (which by the way looks amazing to me ) so gave it a try as riveting and scribing are things I am still learning.

I actually do not have a better technique I do know the result depends on the tool used and for me RB production riveters and scribing tools are working great.
The best thing to keep in mind is with riveting using a rolling device is to go slow and work carefull.
Problems I found out if not working carefull is:
1) Rolling offline (use dymo tape as a ruler)and the riveting head does not follow the tape.
2) Repairing using CA glue.
3) Once rivets are made and I wanted them deaper to be careful when rolling the riveter back and not make new rivets.
4) Finally if for some reason the riveting half way the line goes off or whatever to re-do the entire line as riveting half way just did not work for me.
This is from the bit of experience I have after that the sanding and washing (some holes still need to be cleaned with a needle or other pointing device)

When the canopy was placed I noticed a gap at the back must have bin sanding away without paying attention to that (one learns from these moments) not sure now if I will change it as the canopy will be displayed in open position (will sleep about it)
Some more pictures of what the plane looks like now.
