Product Description

1/32 F15C Eagle Aircraft by Tamiya. Ages 12+. Highly detailed 1/32 scale model kit of the McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle, a twin-engine air superiority fighter aircraft of the United States Air Force and its allies. The F-15 was originally developed to counter the top-secret Soviet MiG-25, which was then thought by NATO as a highly advanced air superiority fighter. However, NATO intelligence about the MiG-25 turned out to be incorrect, as the MiG-25 was designed by the Soviet Union as a high-speed interceptor to counter advanced American high speed bombers which were then in development. Nevertheless, the mistake in identity motivated the United States to develop the F-15, which became one of the best air superiority fighters of all time. The combination of two Pratt & Whitney F100 turbofan engines with a sleek and aerodynamic airframe gives the F-15 outstanding thrust-to-weight ratio, making it highly maneuverable despite its large size. The large wing surface of the F-15 makes it an ideal platform for a variety of air-to-air as well as air-to-ground weapons, and F-15s are fitted with advanced multi-mission avionics, radar, and guidance systems. "As of 2008, the F-15 in all air forces has an air-to-air combined kill record of 104 kills to 0 losses in air combat," and over half of which were made by IAF (Israeli Air Force) pilots. This super detailed big 1/32 scale model kit features the F-15C single seat air-superiority fighter variant. The kit comes with optional open or closed canopy, opening cannon bay cover, movable air intake, optional open or closed air brake, opening nose cone to exposed detailed radar assembly, opening access bay cover, optional open or closed landing gear doors, rubber tires, highly detailed cockpit with Aces II Ejection Seat exquisitely replicated, parts to build 1 detailed pilot figure, and a wide assortment of weapons and accessories (AIM-7 Sparrow, AIM-9 Sidewinder, 20 mm Vulcan Cannon, 610 gallon centerline external fuel tank). Decals with 3 sets of markings included.
