Response to Yom Kippur War..
I am waaay past due for a Bar MitzvaH Wally,but thanks for joining the party.
Is your kit the Revell or Academy kit? Are there any assembly pitfalls I should know about?
You probably don't want to hear this but I think that you have a couple of errors on your kit.
That is the bad news, the good news is that it isn't too late.
It looks like the top of the left vertical fin has the larger diameter sensor housing, which is incorrect, F-15I's have the same smaller diameter fairing on both vertical fins.
The second error is that the rear of the fuselage fairings have the 'thimble' style domed fairings (correct for an F-15E) rather than the 'chisel' or 'wedge' shaped variety particular to the F-15I.
I also just noticed that the nose wheel leg doesn't appear to have a shimmy damper fitted either. The Academy kit includes this small part as a separate item (I nearly missed it), it is part J37.
