JASDF 204th Hikotai, #42-8828, Naha AB, Japan

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

Following World War II, the Japanese government passed Self-Defense Forces Law in 1954 with the JASDF (Japanese Air Self-Defense Force) serving as the aviation branch. 204 Hikotai of 7 Kukudan received the Eagle in 1983 to replace the aging F-104J Starfighter and are currently based at Hyakuri Airfield. Currently, Japan is the only nation licensed to build the F-15 Eagle (manufactured by Mitsubishi) and the 7th Kukudan wing is the only wing to operate an F-15 in the Greater Tokyo Area.

Please note: An optional display stand is available separately if you wish to display this model "in-flight".

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. The Air Force needed a fighter that could engage long range targets, a skill the F-4 did not possess. The F-15 has a pulse-Doppler radar system, which can track small high-speed targets up to 120 nautical miles away and can lock its missile onto targets up to 50 nautical miles away. With more than 100 aerial combat victories, the F-15 is said to be one of the most successful modern fighters. It is expected to remain in service until 2025.

Witty's 1:72 scale F-15s feature an impressive amount of pad-printed markings including some elaborate paint schemes and numerous warning placards found adorning the entire airframe. They are highly detailed with a delicate thin cambered wing, simulated stainless-steel heat shielding surrounding the engine exhausts, movable razor thin all metal elevators and rudders. The underside of the aircraft features non-configurable, yet highly detailed, sturdy metal landing gear with a full complement of beautifully pad printed ordnance. Showing remarkable attention to detail, actuators extend and retract with the hinged canopy and speed brake and compressor fans will even spin if air is blown into the engine intakes!
