Hi All,

Im gathering bits to do a F-15A ASAT eagle in 1:48 and was thinking of using an Aires F-15C "early" pit to get started. Oviously the instrument panel is different (I will dress up the kits), but what about the rest of the pit?

anything special I should add in the rear for the ASAT mission?

I have the hasegawa kit, and may use the Aries feathered exhaust (or I might tackle the "high grade" ones in the kit), plus some bits from Eduards exterior.

or I could just dress up the kit pit with Eduards interior set (F-15C again).

I do have a few references...not much though as I tend to do USN/USMC aircraft. Any advice is appreciated!

The HUD and Gyroscopic systems were modified to launch the ASM-135
as new wiring on pylon to cockpit;

Even the engine feathers were the same.
