F-15C/E Corrected Nozzles

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review October 2004 Manufacturer Cutting Edge
Subject F-15C/E Corrected Nozzles Scale 1/32
Kit Number CEC32143 Primary Media Resin
Pros Corrects length of Tamiya F100 nozzles Cons Resin molding blocks require care for removal
Skill Level Intermediate MSRP (USD) OOP

First Look

For those who've aquired one or both of the impressive 1/32 Tamiya F-15C and F-15E Eagles, you may not have noticed that the afterburner nozzle is over 1/4 of an inch too long. Many people would never even notice, but those afflicted with AMS will want to correct this 'bug'.

F-15C/E Corrected Nozzles

Some modelers have the skills to surgically alter the kit nozzles themselves, but for those who don't care to potentially mess up an otherwise expensive ($100+ USD) kit, Cutting Edge has come to the rescue.

Cast in light gray resin, these nozzles are a drop-in replacement and include a full set of pushrods that are also cut to the correct length. The conversion uses the kit's actuators to round out the conversion.

This is a simple correction for the Tamiya kit to correct the overly long F100 engine nozzles.

My sincere thanks to Meteor Productions for this review sample!
