I had forgotten about the Fujimi kit... Testors has boxed both Fujimi and Italeri plastic.Don McIntyre wrote: Wasn't the Testors kit Fujimi plastic? I could be wrong, though, it's been known to happen…
IIRC the Tamiya kit got generally good marks, except for the cockpit, which I think was from an era when decals represented the side console details, etc.
Some people don't see the problem. If it doesn't bother you, it's a pretty decent kit.Chris Aleong wrote:Good to know about the Academy engine fairings.
I never noticed it on my own, and even knowing it's there doesn't bother me overly much. f you decide to go that route, I suggest reinforcing the seam where the nose attaches to the mid-fuselage assembly with plastic strip or something similar. Mine was sturdy enough without that, until I dropped it right after applying the last decal.Todd Enlund wrote:Some people don't see the problem.

IIRC, Testors also issued the Fujimi kit, or was that 1/72, the memory is pretty faded on that…Todd Enlund wrote: I guess there is also the Testors/Italeri kit, which I also have not seen in person.
Todd that would be great. I just picked up the GWH F-15I and as I mentioned ponly have F-15A kits but looking to get a C as there are markings that were only on the C version.Todd Enlund wrote: I've decided to collect all the 1/48 F-15 kits and do a comparison. I already had the Great Wall, Hasegawa and Monogram kits, and this week I bought Tamiya, Fujimi and Italeri. Still need to find an Academy and an old Revell. I also already have a Revell F-15E.
