I move that you post all of your work, ChernayaAkula, profiles and 3-views, which I consider genius and food for thought

I love what I've seen, especially that A-10.  Would you happen to have a full three-view of that operational F-15?  I just  happen to have several 1/72 F-15's and a 1/72 Orpheus pod to mount on it.

Cheers, guys!  ;)

@elmayerle: Sorry, but I don't have a three-view of that. The camo scheme is inspired by the Italian F-104s, but applied so it fits on an F-15. The markings themselves are very much taken 1/1 from Italian Starfighters. I can highly recommend SkyModels' excellent decal sheet for Italian Starfighters (72-062). Anything you'll need can be found on there. That sheet or Italeri's recent re-pop of the Esci Starfighter, which also comes with a rather nice decal sheet.

More old profiles!

Two SEA wraparound schemes. These two are based in Osan, Korea, but I'll revisit that wrap-around SEA and Euro 1 theme later. I'm on a USAFE kick at the moment. May include Weasels and recon birds.

And some Eagles for the Navy!
I haven't included any mods to make them carrier capable as these are more colour/scheme studies than anything else. I plan to revisit the USN theme as well later.

I'll take your advice about the decal sheets.  The Navy F-15's look great and I'll most definitely keep them in mind for my F-15M (M for Maritime) conversions.

Two fresh ones!  8)
I always liked how the Israelis incorporated their squadron insignia into the camouflage scheme, so I tried to do that with two German Tornadoes. The squadron insignia haven't been altered all that much. I suppose you could alter them (simpler designs, better aligned to the aircraft's lines) for better effect, but I wanted to keep it simple.

SEA-camo'd F-15s.....nice. Now, some F-16s, A-10s, and F-15Es in the same pattern would be good to see. The Turks, btw, still have their F-4s assigned to strike missions in the same scheme even today.

Holy thread revival Batman! It's been FIVE years!  :o Thanks to Photobukkit's shenanigans  ::), I've now put my stuff on Flickr. I promised to put all my profile stuff in this thread five years ago, but... that was then. Hoping to actually follow through with that promise now. And I've used bigger versions of the previous pics.

Allons-y! Speaking of which, here are some French Eagles (Aigles)!

First up are two versions in Mirage F.1 colours.

F-15A of EC 1/12 Cambrésis from 1978

F-15A of EET 5/330 "Côte d'Argent" in Tigermeet markings

Two participants of Operation Daguet, the French effort in the 1991 Gulf War
They were able to bag some Iraqi Foxbats with the very fast Matra Super 530Ds.
In Mirage 2000 camo and equipped with an IFR probe.

"Balkan Rat" - OP Allied Force ground-pounder with LANTIRN and GBU-10. The rat tail art is just about visible at the top of the tail.

What if the Shah had decided against the Tomcat and bought Eagles instead?

Eagle in Asia Minor:

The new Tomcat scheme:

Apart from being clad in the cool P-3 camo, this Eagle uses Sea Eagle ASMs for anti-shipping operations. Sea Eagles because the Sea Harriers operated off the Iranian Navy's Invincible-class carriers also use this ASM.

Turkey: What if the F-4E "Terminator 2020"-programme didn't take off and another solution was needed?

Back to the US:

Ambush!

Vandy One:

And that's all I've got as far as old Eagle profiles are concerned. Got a couple more new ones in various stages of completion, but haven't worked on them in ages.
I'll try and upload profiles of other stuff once I find the original files.
Cheers,
Moritz

^ Glad you like 'em!  :smiley:

The following profiles were inspired by an "artist's impression" posted by "ysi-maniac". It shows the Ram-J, the prototype of what was to be the Su-25 Frogfoot. I suppose it might look like a Su-25 when seen through a satelite's "bird's" eye", buit in profile, it looks quite different. I took the profile below, enlarge it and traced it in MS Paint, then erasing the colours. A bit tedious, but worth it.

Didn't like the generic and rather un-Soviet bombs of the artists impression and swapped them for something a little more suitable.

The Jigabachi AV from Ghost in the Shell in various whif guises.

The line art is a traced scan of the instruction sheet in Kotobukiya's 1/72 kit. I tried my hand at Gimp for the slanted roundels.
