Has anyone built Hasegawa 52123 F-15E?

Wondering if anyone has built this kit and can tell me if its a good representation of the F-15E regardless of "country of origin" decals? Looking to make this into a Desert Storm strike eagle and want to be aware of any potential issues. Cheers!

Hi Damon,

I went to Hobby Search (1999.co.jp/eng) and looked it up. I think it'll build into a decent F-15E. It has the 3 lower CFT hardpoints (which the original Haseagawa Strike eagle didn't have-it was a prototype-so you have to watch which kit you get).

Won't be perfect, but decent, I think.

Thanks,

Tom

I would start with the Revell kit if you can even better if you can find one at Michaels with one of their coupons! If not then I would use the Academy kit. I have all three.

Cheers Rob.
