Here is the latest release from Caracal Models for the Great Wall Hobbies 1/48 F-15C/D Eagle kits. This set will work on other 1/48 F-15 kits, but the subjects depicted are MSIP II aircraft, so you'll need to make the necessary updates if you want an accurate depiction.
The subject covered in this set include:
- F-15C, 84-0027, 493 FS/48 FW, RAF Lakenheath, 2014, Sqn CC's aircraft
- F-15C, 84-0019, 493 FS/48 FW, RAF Lakenheath, 2013
- F-15C, 86-0156, 493 FS/48 FW, RAF Lakenheath, 2013
- F-15D, 84-0044, 493 FS/48 FW, RAF Lakenheath, 2013
The markings are nicely printed (by Cartograf) and provide all of the distinctive markings plus stenciling enough for two models. This is a nice set of alternatives to the kit decals and will make your Great Wall Hobbies' Eagle kit look great!
