I don't see it...

Looking at the HTML source, the photo is from this URL (I added spacing to make it show up):

Perhaps this image won't show for some reason? I could go to that URL directly and pull it up, so maybe my browser is just messing with me ^^;;;

EDIT: By the way, the paint job on the F-15 is AMAZING.

In case someone missed too, you need to by logged to see it. At least it happened to me. :biggrin:

Great F 15 :)

That must be it! When I first came to the page, I wasn't logged in yet, and then after I logged in, my locally cached copy of the page probably prevented me from seeing the MiG.

maybe it's the photography, but the F-15 looks better to me...sorry Texas.:)

Yeah i think the photo angles and lighting make it very hard for the fulcrum. I voted for the fulcrum because it any russian jet looks awesome, even though the F15 had a better paint job and was more detailed.

Very nice work Nord!

For me it was all on the paint, and detail. The F-15 looked as if it could be enlarge and added to a flight line, the other looked as if somebody, splashed paint on a model of an air plane.

Detail and paint can make or break a model.

Some would say that paint is the model ^_^

Very true. The model is 20 years old and back then, I had no airbrush !!:biggrin:

Nord is an example of what an airbrush can do with the right man!:)

Ah, that explains a lot. I did vote for Nord, but I want you to know that I liked your MiG, too.

I don't know much about modeling. Is it possible for you to re-paint that, should you choose to? Well, I suppose one would build another rather than re-painting...

I vote the F-15.:biggrin:

I had to go with the MiG. Nord went into extraordinary detail on his F-15 but John's paint scheme with the proper over-spray was absolutely striking.

Well, to me anyway. And that was WITHOUT an air brush? Fantastic.

Good jobs for both of you.

The thing is that itīs not a F-15E, it`s a F-15D :biggrin:

I should have posted them both....

All the models are fantastic...great detail. I think Nord has just pipped it with the extra detail.

Well done, gentlemen! :)
Both are excellent, but I have to go with TJ on this occasion as he didn't have the benefit of an airbrush. Stupendous detailing from Nord, as usual.

I am rather torn. The painting on Texasjohn's is very pretty and I think it makes it look rather cool. On the other hand, the tiny details on Nord's adds quite a bit to it as well.

No. He borrowed that shrinking down machine from Fantastic Voyage (the one with Raquel Welch swimming around some guy's blood stream) and miniaturized a real F-15.

All he needs to do now is find a pilot small enough and we will have the perfect stealth fighters than can even fly inside the command bunkers.

It has been a bit more than a week -- been a bit busy -- but we can safely say that Nord is the winner. Congratulations. :)
