The Spotlight ON series specializes in color profiles of a given subject. In this case it is the F-15 Eagle.

The book starts with a two pages description (landscape format) the characteristics of the aircraft and operational history of it. It is not meant to be exhaustive; it is just a primer as the real reason for this book are the fantastic 40 color profiles of the F-15 Eagle in service with different air forces.

With an aircraft that has seen such an extensive service -and combat- it is not possible to cover every single camouflage scheme worn by them. As such the book selects a representative sample of mainstream and one-off schemes, like retirement schemes and such.

Among the profiles you will find the liveries of USA -including several ANG and NASA airframes-, France (demonstrator aircraft), Israel, Saudi Arabia, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Qatar.

Each profile includes a short description of the airframe plus the location of the airplane and, if applicable, a description of the ordinance being carried.

I would say that the quality of the printing is superb. The artwork is amazing and inspiring. I feel like I want to start building and painting F-15s in each one of the profiles in this book.

I want to apologize that the book size is slightly larger than my scanner and as such, some of the profiles got 'cropped' when being scanned.

Highly recommended.

I would like to thank Casemate Publisher, Stratus MMP and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
