First Look

Afterburner Decals has turned out some impressive decal releases covering contemporary US subjects and this one is definitely no exception. This release covers five 'Wild Boar' Eagles out the 390th FS/366th FW at Mountain Home AFB.

F-15 F-15

All five aircraft are wearing the MOD Eagle paint scheme, which is made easier with the MOD Eagle stencils also available from Afterburnder Decals. The aircraft presented in this set are:

  • F-15C, 86-0157, Sqn CC acft, 2006
  • F-15D, 86-0181, 2003
  • F-15C, 86-0146, 2006
  • F-15C, 86-0168, 2006
  • F-15C, 86-0179, 2006

This decal set provides all of the distinctive markings for each of the aircraft, and enough national markings and maintenance stencils for at least two aircraft.

My sincere thanks to Afterburner Decals for this review sample!
