Detailed Cockpit

コクピット内は精密に再現されています。もし計器盤にメーターやスイッチ類のモールドがあり、さらにグレーでドライブラシがかけられていればなお良かったと思います。

The cockpit interior is detailed well. But, if the instrument panel has gauges/switches on it's surface and dried brushing with grays, it would be perfect.

Pilot Figure in The Cockpit

ホビーマスターは素晴らしいエアモデルを作る一方、出来の悪いフィギュアもまた作ります。酷いフィギュアは使いたくないので、多くのレビューではドラゴン社製フィギュアを使用しています。

Hobby Master produces an excellent airmodel, but they make an ugly figure too. I am using Dragon's figure in most reviews because I don't want to use the ugly one.

about real plane

McDonnell Douglas F-15J Eagle 62-8866

マクダネル・ダグラスF-15Jイーグル(62-8866号機、製造番号066)は1986年、航空自衛隊により調達され204飛行隊に配備されました。 1964年以来F-104を装備してきた204飛行隊は、1984年に航空自衛隊で3番目のF-15飛行隊となりました。
2009年初頭、沖縄県の那覇基地に配備されていたF-4EJ改による302飛行隊を百里に移動し、替わりにF-15装備部隊である204飛行隊が那覇基地へ移動します。

McDonnell Douglas F-15J Eagle 62-8866 c/n 066 was procured by JASDF(Japanese Air Self Defence Force) in 1986 and assigned to the 204th Hikotai. In 1984 the 204th Hikotai was the third squadron to be equipped with the F-15 replacing the F-104J's they had been flying since 1964.
Early in 2009 the 204th Hikotai moved to Naha, Okinawa trading bases with 302nd Hikotai that moved their F-4EJ-Kai's to the former 204th base at Hyakuri.
