    While gloss coat is drying on F-106 I decided to start back on a Tamiya F-15C I used the side consoles and instrument panel from a Hasegawa kit I basically cut underneath the consoles and glue them directly to the tamiya tub. The instrument panel I had to sand a little bit to fit under the kit coaming other than that it was a perfect fit the burner cans are from the Revell F-15 strike Eagle all I had to do was sand the inside of the Tamiya kit and a slid in perfect this airplane will be in the markings of an F-15C at Soesterberg AFB . 13427773_10208668758569255_1401724000130774139_n.jpg 13407221_10208668758649257_6891869827451737386_n.jpg 13413116_10208668758849262_4662496259548676708_n.jpg 13319787_10208668759129269_611545602286317949_n.jpg 13394184_10208668759649282_4400301291635611007_n.jpg 13407147_10208668759089268_8753123341477524749_n.jpg 13417399_10208668758809261_5938968514030439914_n.jpg 13423769_10208668759329274_3054299808498407749_n.jpg 13432186_10208668759849287_4846427667594577220_n.jpg

    Looking good so far.
    Here's a pic of the rear end of the recently restored example, hanging from the roof of the American Museum at Duxford, UK, which might help for colours and details.
