BAM72002 F-15SG conversion set instructions

This set is intended for the Academy 1/72 F-15K kit. All construction steps are identical to the original kit apart for those outlined below.

These instructions are laid out along what we consider the most efficient/logical construction flow, your approach may differ

Parts that simply replace the kit parts

  • MAWS tail booms
  • GE F110-129 engines (premium edition only)

Other parts instructions

Upper fuselage antennae

Reference pictures for the top left and bottom center (under the cockpit) small antennae:

Cut the upper fuselage and insert the replacement panel as shown below

MAWS antennea on cockpit sides

The antennae should be fixed flush with the edge of the cockpit

JHCMS Magnetic Tracking Unit (MTU)

The JHCMS MTU should be glued either inside the canopy or (if the canopy is closed) it is easier to glue it on the edge of the cockpit sill lid, as shown here. This reduces the risk of marring the canopy clear part with CA glue fumes
