For any 1/144 F-15A/C/J Eagle kit

It is not often that we get 1/144 scale decals and this one from DXM Decals is particularly nice. It is for any appropriate 1/144 F-15A/C/J Eagle and there are several companies who make this kit so finding one should not be that difficult.

The sheet contains markings for at least three planes and there are enough common data and other markings to do two complete planes. The sheet also contains a number of additional serial numbers and nose numbers so that you could do other aircraft aside from what is on the sheet.

As you can see, this one covers three distinctive camouflage schemes. One is more of a green based camouflage, one is more greys, and the third set is predominately desert colored. On the latter two, the upper wing control surfaces are left grey.

The decals themselves are superbly printed and rather glossy. The full color instruction sheet shows four views of each aircraft so that you can be sure to get all the colors in the right place. Paint information is in Mr. Color, Humbrol and FS 595 so you are sure to find something locally that will work.

A great sheet that will produce some great looking models when you are finished.

An excellent choice for those of you wanting something a bit different.
