FAR Mudhens
Hellenic F-15E and JASDF F-15EJ

 

Well, from start to finish it took 111 days or 3 months and 19 days or 2664 hours.Some of the decals silvered but at foot and half to two feet, you can't notice it.And I bitched up the gold tinting on the JASDF bird. I tried for two days and gave up, so it's just clear now.

Here's a list of thing I did to my two girls as well as link to the in-progress threads.

Both kits are Revell 1/48 F-15E
