First Look

Afterburner Decals has released another 'super set' of decals, this time focused on the F-15C Eagles from Kadena AB, Japan, These are the Shogun Eagles that display distinctive artwork on their tails to honor the Japanese warrior heritage.

F-15C F-15C

This decal set comes on one large sheet and provides markings for 13 aircraft:

  • F-15C, 78-0477, 5th AF CC's aircraft, Kadena AB, 2003
  • F-15C, 78-0518, 18th TFW CC's aircraft, Kadena AB, 1991
  • F-15C, 85-0114, 44 FS/18 FW, Kadena AB, Japan, 2009, Sqn CC's aircraft
  • F-15C, 84-0025, 44 FS/18 FW, Kadena AB, Japan, 2008, Sqn CC's aircraft
  • F-15C, 78-0544, 44 FS/18 FW, Kadena AB, Japan, 1991, Sqn CC's aircraft
  • F-15C, 85-0114, 44 FS/18 FW, Kadena AB, Japan, 2008
  • F-15C, 78-0516, 44 FS/18 FW, Kadena AB, Japan, 2006
  • F-15C, 78-0487, 44 FS/18 FW, Prince Sultan AB, OIF, 2003
  • F-15C, 85-0105, 67 FS/18 FW, Kadena AB, Japan, 2009, Sqn CC's aircraft
  • F-15C, 85-0105, 67 FS/18 FW, Kadena AB, Japan, 2008, Sqn CC's aircraft
  • F-15C, 81-0040, 67 FS/18 FW, Kadena AB, Japan, 2007, Sqn CC's aircraft
  • F-15C, 83-0046, 67 FS/18 FW, Kadena AB, Japan, 2009
  • F-15C, 78-0492, 67 FS/18 FW, Kadena AB, Japan, 1997

The set comes with sufficient stenciling for at least two aircraft and if you have kit stenciling you can recycle, you can replicate nearly every tail number here. These markings were sized for the Hasegawa 1/48 F-15C kit.

Take a close look at this decal sheet. All of these decals are in perfect register and none require you to stack multiple layers of decals to recreate what you see here. Don't settle for substandard decal artwork, get your Eagle markings right here!

My sincere thanks to Afterburner Decals for this review sample!
