Accessories don't come much easier than Cutting Edge's replacement exhaust nozzle for Hasegawa's F-15 kits. Simply cut the nozzles off the blocks, attach to the kit and voila! Accurate and well detailed exhaust nozzles.

These nozzles will suit F-15 modelling subjects that were equipped with the "turkey feathers" actuator covers.

The resin is perfectly cast on my sample and the detail is excellent. The casting block looks quite imposing but is actually very simple to remove with careful application of a razor saw. Take your time with the cut though - you won't get a second chance (I actually did some minor damage to a turkey feather with an overenthusiastic application of the razor saw - you can see the small dent in the title photo. A small application with putty and nobody will ever know...)

Although this pack is labelled fit the F-15, the same style of nozzle is also used on the F-16 Fighting Falcon. If you are planning to build a couple of Fighting Falcons, you might want to consider buying this set instead of two F-16 nozzles, thus saving yourself a few dollars.

Recommended.

Thanks to Meteor Productions for the review sample.
