Boeing's F-15 Silent Eagle in....."Five Easy Pieces"

This plane has been on and off my front burner too many times. I completed a pattern over a week ago but have yet to render it. Here are pictures of Boeings refitting of the venerable McDonnell-Douglas Strike Eagle transforming this 4th generation plane into a quasi 5th generation plane.

The rending of foam begins.
The white disk is my prop swing template.
I designed this as I usually do by getting a good orthographic drawing plotting it out so the plane is around 42" long and then I sorted out the 3-DD fuselage and the sculpted nacelles, etc.

Nice Flier!

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I'm free

Thanks.
I tried to glue my crashed Fulcrum back together. The rear deck is warped. Gonna have to work on it some more.
Hope to get my F-15E, F-18C and FX-One plans posted this week.
I have a 70mm EDF flight pack heading this way. Been thinking about a five easy piece EDF F-16 Falcon. Whatcha think?

Well I'm afraid you might need some sort of plan to do that.
You can find the PDF Plan for my Five Easy Piece Boeing F-15E Silent Eagle Here:
