[Kit Review] - Revell 1/144 - F-15 E Strike Eagle -
The new F-15 from Revell recently released, looking like a fine kit along the lines of Revell of Germany other quality 1/144 models and i think the best injection kit your going to see for a long time.
This review here is really in depth and it seems this a 1/48 scaled to 1/144, only gripe would be the decal option only one and tiger meet so too flashy for what i want a Strike Eagle to look like.
Usual amount of parts for a 1/144 Revell kit, comes as the 2-seater but should be quite easy to make a single seater and a excellent two-piece canopy always nice as a display option.
Strange lack of weapons but im most 1/144 modeller will have plenty of spares from DML Dragon kits, i like seeing a Strike Eagle armed to the teeth!.
Shame about the decals, most of the useful stencils are Incorporated in the tiger meet strips.
Lots of top quality panel lines, good wash should really bring out the detail.
Looks like more excellent detail, unlike most Revell kits the the landing panel are molded onto the sprue.
Looking forward to building this new kit, which i won't be starting for a while because new week im off to JAPAN!!! OH YEAH!!
