Rare and Collectible

Mitsubishi F-15DJ Eagle   10.75"   7.25"

The JASDF has acquired 37 F-25DJ two-seaters with twelve being built by McDonnell Douglas and the remainder built under license by Mitsubishi. The Eagles replaced the aging F-104s. Late in 1981 a Tactical Fighter Training Squadron (Hiko Kyodotai) was established at Tsuiki but moved to Nyuabaru in 1983 as a dedicated Aggressor Squadron. The main aircraft is the F-15DJ with a few F-15Js. The Aggressor Squadron's task is to train potential F-15 pilots at Nyuabaru as well as other locations for proficiency training. These Aggressors wear unique schemes on each aircraft.

Mitsubishi F-15DJ Eagle

Designed to meet US Air Force requirements for an air superiority fighter to replace the F-4 Phantom, the F-15 Eagle first flew on July 27, 1972. The Air Force needed a fighter that could engage long range targets, a skill the F-4 did not possess. The F-15 has a pulse-Doppler radar system, which can track small high-speed targets up to 120 nautical miles away and can lock its missile onto targets up to 50 nautical miles away. With more than 100 aerial combat victories, the F-15 is said to be one of the most successful modern fighters. It is expected to remain in service until 2025.

Hobby Master's 1:72 scale F-15 is produced with a high metal content using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques. The model features near seamless construction as seen on all Hobby Master products, and this is particularly evident with the tight-fitting conformal fuel tanks present on the F-15E variant. Separate open and closed canopy and speed brakes are included, yielding uncompromising detail that functional hinges would lack at this scale. Other fine features include a detailed cockpit interior, a variety of ordnance and drop tanks appropriate to the paint-scheme and landing gear that constructed as completed subassemblies for easy installation.
