Mitsubishi F-15J Eagle Diecast Model
JASDF 306th Hikotai, #52-8951 Maverick, Komatsu AB, Japan, Komatsu Base Air Festival 2022

Limited Edition

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Mitsubishi F-15J Eagle   10.75"   7.25"

The JASDF (Japan Air Self-Defense Force) 306th Hikotai (Tactical Fighter Squadron) is part of the 6th Air Wing at Komatsu Air Base in Ishikawa Prefecture. The Japanese Constitution states that the country renounces war and JASDF fighter squadrons have never been deployed in combat overseas. One of the main activities of JASDF fighter squadrons is providing Quick Reaction Alert intercepts to Chinese and Russian aircraft nearing or violating Japanese airspace.

F-15J #52-8951 was painted in this striking scheme, replicating that of an F/A-18 from the movie "Top Gun: Maverick", as part of the 2022 Air Festival held at Komatsu Air Base.

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. Following reviews of proposals, the United States Air Force selected McDonnell Douglas's design in 1969 to meet the service's need for a dedicated air superiority fighter. Since entering service in 1976, it is among the most successful modern fighters, with over 100 victories and no losses in aerial combat, with the majority of the kills by the Israeli Air Force.

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.
