First Look

Bullseye Model Aviation is back with an interesting selection of F-15C Eagles from Eglin and Tyndall AFBs. This set provides a nice mix of operational aircraft out of the 33 FW, training aircraft out of the 325 FW, and test aircraft out of the 79th TEG. These markings are sized for the Great Wall Hobby kits.

This set provides maintenance stencils and markings to replicate at least four examples in 1/48 scale (and if you use some of the stencils from the kits, you can do more!). The sheets are printed by Cartograf and the printing is very well done. What's more, none of these decals require the modeler to stack multiple layers of markings atop one another to recreate artwork. This trend by some other decal companies of producing multiple-layer decals is unfortunate as it puts the burden on you to do the work of what should have been done by the decal maker.

This is an excellent set to provide a variety of operational, training, and test Eagles, with two of them MiG-killers, and most carrying the distinctive markings of commanders' aircraft.

These decals are sold exclusively by Sprue Brothers.

My sincere thanks to Bullseye Model Aviation for this review sample!
