Default Witty Wings F-15E Strike Eagle USAF 48th 1/72

Is anyone considering buying this model?:

F-15E Strike Eagle USAF 48th FW Suffolk (1:72) - Witty Wings Diecast Fighters F-15E Strike Eagle USAF 48th FW Suffolk (1:72) #WTY72006-10 at diecastairplane.com

I haven't decided yet, but it looks really nice, I'll probably wait to see more pictures of it once it's out.

As mentioned by many other experienced long-time collectors here at DA.C this model is atrocious when it comes to sculpting and the general lack of accuracy apparent in the details of the model. According to members like SuperKungfu, the model suffers from an oddly shaped nose and fuselage. Along with other minute details.

Your better off waiting for Hobby Master to come out with an eventual F-15 E Strike Eagle within the next 2 years. Of course if you cant wait that long by all means go for this ugly looking model.

The question is if HM will make it, as they haven't made any kind of F-15 until now...

They WILL make it. Currently HM has been hard at work on the F-18 and F-16 releases. You can expect that HM will release their first F-15 by either the end of this year or early next year. By 2013 you can expect a new F-15 release from them almost every month.

Its up to you though. As I said. If you cant wait buy the Witty F-15E if you must. But dont regret later if you see a much superior version from HM a few years down the road.....

Since you seem pretty confident in what you say, I'll wait for HM's version.

I'm hoping it wont be a few years. The first HM F-15 is supposed to be the Strike Eagle. I would wait for an HM announcement before making a decision.

I hear the WW F-15Cs aren't too bad. Decent price point too. I'm afraid to think what the retail price will be when HM's Strike Eagle comes out.

Glad you made the right decision. Just be patient and you will be rewarded with a brilliant model that looks better and feels better than the Witty F-15E by a long-shot. As for the price on the HM F-15 when it comes out, as long as it ain't $150 like Century Wings and their outrageous Tomcats, I'm fine....

No one complains about Wittys F-15C....its the D version that has ap roblem with the misformed canopy...and with the F-15E, i wont dare to make any comment as i dont have one but referring to some forums....there a lot of complains regarding missing pylons on the CFT tanks in which the F-15E is capable of carrying dozens of bombs.....I myself will just be waiting for HMs version

Here's some pics from the flying mule:

I don't have anything from witty wings so can't comment about their products. IMO you should wait for HM's strike eagle.

To trash Witty F-15s as wrongly shapen junk is a travesty, a gross exaggeration, and simply not true. The basic shape of the model is fine. Yes, the twin seater canopy is mis-shapen. Is the nose? My opinion is no. Your's may be yes. But a consensus on this point is faaaar from conclusive. In fact I would argue more see no problem with the nose than do.

The single seater canopy is fine. Some disagree with this assessment, but is much like the argument over the nose. Will HM release an E variant? Open question, and by no means, even if it does, will it promise to be perfect. I believe HM's F-4 canopy is mis-shapen, too flat over the pilot. A few agree with me, most do not. HM has released mis-shapen canopies before (anyone remember the first Spitfire Malcom hood?). The beauty with HM is it tends to fix problems, while Witty does not.

The whole point of this is be at least somewhat objective people. The Witty F-15 has many details to be praised. Generally, it is a fine model. Just know if you purchase a twin seater you will get a mis-shapen canopy and possibly a load out you will not like. How many HM load outs have been incorrect?

One of the clear mistakes (although you won't notice it quickly if you don't make comparisons to pictures) are the lack of rwr's (or something similar) etc on the tailends, next to the exhausts. On this Witty model they have just used the same shape as on the F-15C. Which is a bit of a shame I think.

I do quite like the fact that this isn't some Wing Commander's bird, but just a bog standard aircraft.

For more nice pictures of actual Lakenheath (Strike) Eagles, have a look at this gallery:

RAF Lakenheath - Media Gallery

They span several years, so it might be a good starting point to compare color schemes and load outs.

Seems the Witty nose is a bit "fat" as well the canopy shape is off. Not a killer but it does take away from the look of the model. Honestly, I think the Dragon models with the detail in accuracies are better than the misshapen Witty models.
I am also one of those waiting for HM or CW to come out with an F-15.

Quoted partly for irony, partly to highlight my disappointment that this prediction hasn't come true yet.

Heh. Come on HM! Get cracking! As a relatively new collector, it seems that the releases are coming at a glacial rate. The first F-16s came out in April 2012 and so far there's only been 4 USAF birds produced. Wow. At this rate, we won't see the F-15 for quite some time, I'd imagine.

I really wish they'd concentrate on the 1:72 scale more as there are so many F-18/F-16/F-15 schemes I'd love to see.

Most of the models I have are Witty Wings 1:72 scale and for the most part, I'm really happy with them. The only qualm I have is with the detachable ordnance. It's a nice touch but some of the ports which the weapons rails go into seem to be loose on a couple of my models. For example, I have a Witty Wings 1:72 scale Su-27 Flanker and a couple of the missile rail ports don't fit well and the missile rail falls to the floor whenever I put my Flanker down. It isn't really a big deal for me, certainly not enough for me to get rid of it, but I think Witty should have paid more attention to this and made sure that each port fit the weapons rails properly.

I had a look at this one in a Modelzone store in Guildford UK last week and I must say I was quite unimpressed by it. The pictures from the Mule seem to catch it at the most pleasing angles, but I found the nose section/cockpit wrong, too many large seams etc.

Hello all, it's been a while since I've been on here!

Just been reading the posts and I agree and disagree with comments regarding the Witty F-15. I've recently acquired the Series 2 version of this F-15 and I agree the model is not truly accurate to the real life counterpart..I live an hour away from Lakenheath and reguarly visited the viewing area when before operations took a knock with the defence cut-backs so have many pics to review against.
However, the model is not too far from being a decent model. I agree HM and CW are far more superior and it shows in the prices but these are also not far from flaws. My personal collection consists of many HM F-4's and a few have problems with incorrect canopies and problems with fitting of the undercarriage and weapons pylons/rails (easily fixed but doesn't always work!). I also have a few of Witty's F-14s along with a few CW ones and you can definately tell the difference in quality but nothing that makes me think I should of paid double the price (actually I would have done if I didn't have to justify to the missus!!).
Until HM or CW (doubt CW would cover as they seem mainly Naval Based aircraft - bar the SR-71) release a F-15 then unfortunately we're stuck with Witty.
Personally though I think the Series 2 F-15 USAF 48th TFW Lakenheath model is good enough in the collection. If I can get a few pics up so you can see it alongside some other models might help.
Anyway...happy collecting to all! Next up for me is HM HA3814 F-16C Block 40G "Triple Jastreb-Killer" - anyone got a release date yet? I understand its October in the UK??

I have the Witty Blizzard Scheme Aggeressor F-15. I love it. The only reason why I don't like the Strike Eagle is because the canopy is the wrong shape! Other than that I like it a lot.

WW F-15C canopy is also in the wrong shape (just not that extreme as the strike eagle)

It all depends on how desperate you are for an F-15 I think. I'd rather not own one than an ugly rendering. Small incorrect details I can live with, but a completely misshapen nose or other part of a model is a deal breaker for me. But that's my own personal position on the subject.

I agree.
I was desperate for one the aggressor F-15's because I have the aggressor F-16 from HM. I'm trying tom create a new section for just aggressors.

I got the F-15SG 05-0005 from WW. I can only make do with it as it is the only SG in the market. Sad to say, alot of features are wrong. For example there is a DR570 on the left CFT which is wrong (only the right CFT has it to access the clearing sector tool and the download pin). The RWR looks terribly small, rear anti-col light is white -.- , wrong engine installed.....
Has its plus side too, the crew chiefs' name and the aircrews' name are accurate, with a slight spelling mistake that is, but it's too small to be noticed anyway. And like I said, it's the only SG in the market.

Hobby Master may make a Singaporean one in the future. I would've just waited. You can try talking to Mr.William about it to help increase your chances. I also had one witty F-15Ethe model in the the title), given to me by my brother. It served as a gap filler for a while until I finally got the HM F-15E. No plans on purchasing a witty E again ever.

I still have some pics taken a while back. In my opinion replacing the canopy made a whole lot of difference.



I now have the HM version and theres really no reason to go back to Wittys. Hopefully HM makes a Singaporean one in the future. I'm still waiting for them to realease a second USAF E though.

Well what I meant by in the market is that only WW makes the SG model. The 8318 and 8328 version is basically a swap in tail number with the local sqn's logo on it, I think. Don't think there's any difference between the 3 other than that. Sad that it is just a copy and paste by WW from an E model it released earlier. SG version uses the F110-GE-129 engine instead of P&W.
Hopefully when HM makes the SG model it would have the tail flash on it, just like those in my display picture.

SG version uses the F110-GE-129 engine instead of P&W.
Hopefully when HM makes the SG model it would have the tail flash on it, just like those in my display picture.
yups... u summed it up precisely. i'd get a hm sg in a flash... but i do have my reservations as to whether they'd get it right after the recent errors with the double mig killer c.

ricky, u may not have worked with the rest but they're super awesome together (if you can overcome the little inaccuracies here and there). have a good weekend!

i'm thinking... perhaps hm could start venturing into rsaf stuff with the striking black knights red whites. no harm hoping...

Have worked on all the 15SGs available but not 16s. And I'm the current crew chief on the 8318

kinda surprised you didn't get the 8318 but yeah, the buccaneers are that bit more attractive. well we'll see what hm does. i am looking forward to an sg myself... and the black knights. looking for one in 72.

guess william will have someone on good authority for reference when hm does an sg

I'll throw this in for Kangaroo too. HM has yet to make an aggressor scheme on any of their F-15's (the Israeli is operational camo, not "aggressor" per se) and anyone who is waiting and hoping for HM to do one could be waiting a long time, like forever, so there is that consider if you're a fan of aggressor paint schemes like the JASDF one.
