    I posted a pic of a plane from the same squadron with the exact same style of eagle-head marking, with the pilot's name there. The font is smaller, but it's clearly how they do things at Lakenheath...

    It just so happens I was behind one of the trucks on my way home this morning :) 
    Couldn't get the ones on the side, but I snapped the rear.

    Hasbro Paramount and Michael Bay may not know or care, but these military people know the real Starscream model.

    Not very accurate IMO. I'll wait for a 3rd Party company to make a cheaper KO version.

    If anyone wants a model of this, Witty wings released a diecast model of this exact same plane a couple years ago. Sold out most everywhere by now AFAIK, but likely shows up on eBay.

    It's item WTW72005-01. Just add a black logo and you're 90% there. (Good luck finding Starscream lettering in the right size and font though).

    The tail-numbers on that Witty (now JCW) matches it, but the intake-style is the older style and rather incorrect now.

    However, HobbyMaster released a recent Lakenheath F-15C with a different tail-numbering, but the style is rather a bit closer to the real thing pictured in the first post...

    real one:
    190508-F-QS178-1034
    190508-F-QS178-1016
    190508-F-QS178-1038

    Maybe HM will now release an actual 001 with the Decepticon-insignia...

    Good ol' Kadena (was my first base assignment as a newbie airman).

    It's always cool to see nose art on military planes, especially if it's unofficial artwork. :D 

    Plus, I don't think HasTak can really say anything about the use of Transformers symbols here seeing how I don't believe they themselves paid any license fees or royalties to McDonnell Douglas or the United States Air Force for use of the F-15 Eagle as transforming toys. Could be mistaken though. :lol

    If anything, I think Hasbro would be honored to see their IPs represented on US Government property.

    I've thought about painting up some MP-11 molds or facsimiles thereof as USAF aircraft, or, being an Ace Combat fan, the planes of Galm Team (Cipher and Pixy).

    Do I have to be The Bad Guy here? While this masterpiece seeker is really nice...it’s not in scale with the rest of the mp line. :p :D
