You did a GREAT JOB on this F-15. I fully understand revisiting old models and improving them.
I did the same thing with the BRTC25 Thunder Fighter. I rebuilt it so many times that I think that I know the model just as well as the original designer. I have added even more detail and greebles.

Well sometimes the beauty of experimentation is that you can go back and revisit a project to see if you can do it better than you did the first time, and this is something I do quite a bit and most recently with the evolution of bare can modeling. Reviewing this thread, you would note that I constructed an F-15 Eagle early on in the experimentation, but something just wasn't as perfect as I would have liked it to be. So I revisited the build, this time redesigning a new nose, a new canopy, the engines and I also added the wing tanks which you so often see on the Eagle while its in flight. The result was not only a better looking model, but pride in knowing that I had nudged this art to yet another level. What do you think?

F-15 Eagle

Length: 16 inches
Wingspan: 10 inches





Right on the money, and you have not only taken this to a new height, you have turned a lot more people onto it. I am contemplating a small English Wheel to see if I can fuse some metal parts with paper, for the sake of the model, I am not a purist when it comes to building anything! >:)

The British tank looks like a real one just "de-militarized" and recoloured in "happy tree" colours. Marvellous works of art! Thank you very much for posting these. :)

So two more projects have been completed since my last visit, so I decided to combine them into one post and let you folks vote/decide which project you like the best.

First, the iconic Piper Tri Pacer in Wal-Mart generic Cola:





Or Secondly, the MiG 21 out of bare aluminum cans, formerly Coca Cola cans:





So what do YOU think? Which one do you think came out the best? :)
