The model for the F-15E "Tiger Meet 2005" was the Hasegawa kit which was overall a good kit with very minor gap issues and fittings problem. The kit came with a huge sheet of decals well registered with the tiger pattern and serial number. I modified the cockpit seat from usual olive dark to orange based on actual reference photo depicting the orange covers applied to the F-15E in this scheme.

The grey used for the main color is the Mr.Color C305 dark grey which perfectly matched the actual scheme. The decals application was quite tricky certain areas had very tiny decals while huge chunk of decals were also hard to manage. The final stage flat coat was applied with panel lines then added using mechanical pen which turned out quite satisfying. Overall I am happy with the kit and the work I was able to accomplish.

Thanks to admin and viewers, do enjoy the pictures.
