Their second 1/48 scale sheet for the F-15E provides markings for Mountain Home-based 389th Fighter Squadron. They chose seven aircraft with unique nose art and mission markings, applied for the 2020 overseas deployment of the unit.

Accurate stencilling and national insignia to build any one of the options is included. All of the sheets in this set were professionally screen printed by Cartograf in Italy.

The F-15E stencilling sheet in this set is also available separately as a Caracal Models Basics item (CDB48006). The recommended kits are Great Wall Hobby (GWH) and Revell F-15E kits in 1/48 scale.

The inclusion of 7 Strike Eagles with noseart makes this a very interesting decal sheet.

You can buy this decal sheet and many other fine decal sheets directly from Caracal Models.
