Done nominally for air-to-air identification during dog-fight training, it really just looked cool. As a group, these aircraft were known as "The Candy Cane Air Force" on the 58th's 1976 Christmas Card.

From the caption of this striped F-4C on Airliners.net (others had red or yellow stripes).

As far as colourful Eagles go, there was also this one with "Sabre stripes", still from the 555th. Incidentally, that was the first F-15 that left the factory wearing the Compass Ghost grey scheme.

*The reason why I’m questioning this is because I want to make a recolor of the F-15A “First Responder” Eagle (s/n 77-0102) of the 102nd Fighter Wing, whom approached the World Trade Center after the Flight 11 hits.
I think that by 2001, they would have been already repainted in the Mod Eagle scheme. The model in this thread is painted in those colors.

edit: the Candy Cane F-15 has now joined its blue team mate in the DL section.

Okay, I see so thereís not much needed to do with the camouflage. By the way, Iím near to complete the recolor of the ďFirst ResponderĒ F-15A Eagle tho (serial no. 77-0102). all that remains now is the eagle head with the pilotís name near the cockpit hehehehe

May the Soul Rest in Peace for the victims
That F-15 is displayed not far from where I live, and I've somehow never considered doing that one myself

Unfortunately it's not a free museum, but it's well worth the money knowing it's keeping the planes in shape! I believe somewhere I have the files of all the 9/11 airliners, I don't remember where I got them or where I saved them to, but I'll try and post them here when I do.

Hello Here Again

I just wanted to give you some notice ever since I’ve uploaded many recolors of F-15A/C Eagles, all of its rear canopy bar were already angled to the front side as you can see on the F-15 photo posted by NACA x CRAFT. I just found out that the rear canopy bar of the F-15A/C which the first time I build was in the wrong angle (angled to the rear), I simply flip it horizontally and no need to move it a little, just fits perfectly

*You can see the difference of the rear canopy bars of my two recolored F-15C Eagles, which both bears the markings of 525th TFS on the photo below:

NACA X CRAFT You will make this B747 YAL-1 Airborne Laser Platform available in this file when you paint it, I will gladly add this model to my production list, because this version is missing

That's a good idea. I'll do it to for the next recolor (5th FIS F-15A & B).

Hello Mark Balderrama aka NACA X CRAFT, I just visited your Instagram page and like very much the X-15 A-2 drawing droping his rocket boosters. Waiting and foresee for your Boeing YAL-1, I must to see that rounded weapon on front of it. Regards, Tony.
