The F-15 Eagle, one of the most successful modern fighters ever with over 100 aerial victories, is a twin-engine, all-weather, tactical jet designed in 1967 and officially introduced in 1976. Seeing action in six nations, the Eagle is expected to continue production until 2019, an impressive 47-year manufacturing run — it will remain in service with the U.S. Air Force until at least 2025. The TF-15 is a two-seat variant.
Sporting a patriotic red, white, and blue paint scheme, this 1/72 scale, Hobby Master, die cast model — a reproduction of a "Bicentennial" Eagle as it appeared in 1976 — features realistic panel lines, an opening canopy, two removable pilot figures, a well-equipped cockpit with instrumentation, detailed afterburning turbofan engines, optional-position landing gear, and a stylish presentation stand. Measures approximately 10¾" long with a 7¼" wingspan.
