McDonnell Douglas F-15J 02-8801 c/n 544/001 was the first of only two F-15Js actually manufactured by McDonnell Douglas in St. Louis, Missouri. F-15J 02-8801 was delivered to the USAF for its maiden flight on June 4, 1980 and then sent to the JASDF on July 15, 1980. A total of two hundred and three F-15Js and twenty F-15DJs were produced for Japan. The ADTW is the Air Development and Test Wing tasked with testing new systems and aircraft to make certain they meet the high standards required by the JASDF.

Mitsubishi F-15J 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.
