McDonnell Douglas F-15A Eagle Diecast Model
USAF 5th FIS Spittin Kittens, #76-0020, Minot AFB, ND, 1985

Limited Edition

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
McDonnell Douglas F-15A Eagle   10.75"   7.25"

In the mid 80's the 5th Fighter Interceptor Squadron converted from the F-106 to the F-15 Eagle. F-15s only flew over Minot until the spring of 1988, when the 5th FIS was deactivated. F-15A #76-0020 was eventually aquired by Britain's Duxford Air Museum and, in 2009, was restored to its original 5th FIS markings.

McDonnell Douglas F-15A 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.

Gemini'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!
