Here is the latest release from Caracal Models designed for the Heller 1/72 kit (and don't forget the resin enhancements from Fisher Model). This set provides markings for two USAF and two US Navy aircraft. If you look below, this set is produced on two sheets of decals to cover these options.
The subjects covered in this set include:
- EC-121D, 53-0536, 551 AEW&C Sqn, Otis AFB, 1968
- EC-121P (WV-2), 141325, VW-13, NAS Patuxent River, 1962
- EC-121P (WV-2), 131388, NADU, NAS South Weymouth, 1961
- EC-121R, 67-21498, 553 RW, Korat RTAFB, 1968
The markings are nicely printed (by Cartograf) and provide all of the distinctive markings and stenciling for one example. For more information about this set and the other releases from Caracal Models, visit their website at http://caracalmodels.com.
My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
