    Hi, Flu! I bought this,too a couple of weeks ago. It was going to be the best model I ever built. I spent a couple of evenings very carefully making the wing framework, but when I got back from a Boy Scout camping trip- it was gone! No one knew where it went. I suspect my dogs or a poltergeist. I look forward to your build.

    only the framework and the wing formers ? I can send you the page with this parts, I scanned the whole model for such situations...........

    Tell me which parts you need and I will see what I can do for you!!

    Thanks for the offer of the parts my dogs ate, but I bought the downloadable version, so I have an unlimited number of tries before I decide the darn thing is beyond my skill level! My son now has me building a M-44 Pulse rifle from Alien for him to play with, so the F-15 will have to wait. I can see from your pix that your skill level seems to be ap to the challenge! Looks Great.

    @all friends

    I´m sorry but the thread is closed !

    The paper is not after my fancy, obvious I made some mistakes ?!? Yesterday I built section "C", today I tried the next step in assembly and it looks terrible !
    Best solution is to look for a new model :grin: :grin:
    I scanned the whole Kit so I can try one more time some time later Sorry Guys.....:? :?

    best regards FLU

    What went wrong?

    Hi Flu,

    I already built the F-15I (most of it), and have pictures of the assembly process. You can send me a pm, if you like.

    Flu............. Glad you are back on the Eagle, but I will miss the Mil-17. I've got that kit and was very interested in the progress.

    I understand the aggravation, and having to put stuff down for a while. I know you will get back to it........... and the Eagle is a nice diversion:twisted:

    Those BIG wings look great........this will make a good compainion to the Falcon you just finished!

    Flu

    The Eagle is looking real fine....really 8v)

    I am looking forward to this one being finished more than any other model I have seen go together. But then, in my opinion, there hasn't been a more beautiful aircraft ever designed.

    under fuselage section......

    here you can see the progress............everything fits well, no problems:

    to stiffen the sides of the fuselage I used cardboard, this is an improvement I suggest to all interested in this model.....

    Just curious, I have the F-15 A/C kit and the rear portion of the engine housing that is white on your model should be metallic. Do you have any plans to fix that or was that the way your model came?
