First Look

Here is the latest release from Caracal Models designed for the Italeri/Testors 1/48 C-130E/H Hercules kit. This set provides markings for C-130T BuNo 164763 which is the aircraft that has served with the team since 2002. The decals provide the variations in markings/script stype as the aircraft appeared in the 2011 and 2014 show seasons.

The markings are nicely printed (by Cartograf) and provide all of the distinctive markings for one example. For more information about this set and the other releases from Caracal Models, visit their website at
