Decal Sheet Title F-15E Strike Eagle - 4th Fighter Wing's 75th Anniversary
Types Featured F-15E

Double Xcellent Models (DXM) are not a well-known decal manufacturer, but they have some very interesting products. Sheet 81-7126 provides markings for an F-15E from the 4th FW marked to celebrate their 75th anniversary during 2017.

The sheet contains markings for a single airframe - 87-0189. This aircraft carried a large eagle's head on the fuselage sides and stylised winges on the fuselage and horizontal stabilisers and a large flower on the upper fuselage. The outer tail fins carried a large anniversary emblem.

The sheet is printed by Cartograf in register and the color is vibrant, although the decals themselves do appear thicker than normal.

Instructions comprise left, right, upper and lower views in full color.

A highly recommended sheet of an interesting subject!
