Basically I see you complaining all the way down the page. Why not stop?
Well, just so everyone knows…it is paint and decals. The eagle beak and eyes are a decal, which fades into the white paint. The tails are 90% decals. The wings are all layers of paint. There is edge sealer on the Gerber (decals), and even if it comes off, which it has been already, going down the intake isn’t a big deal. It’s so hot in the motor, it’s melted probably insrantly.
Awesome paint job. Should paint a F-15C like that model wise.
The classic low viz camo looks nice too in its subtle way.
Wonder when the Silent Eagle or Golden Eagle models will arrive.
I thought flight rules about things that could catch fire
if you know well….
Maybe Uncle Kim wants everybody too see the new
Maybe ask the Flight Sergeant to look at the padding

Yes I do really like the special colour scheme, it’s absolutely fantastic. The USAF should apply more special colour schemes on the F-15s instead of just plain gray scheme.
