|Cons||Nothing noted||Skill Level||Basic|
Here is the latest release from Caracal Models, this time to provide some interesting options for Roden's nice 1/72 C-123B Provider kit. These decals will also work for the Mach 2 kit (if you are so inclined...):
- C-123B, 57-6289, MATS, USAF
- C-123B, 54-0679, SAC, USAF, 1962
- C-123B, 55-4568, USAF, 1960s
- C-123B, 54-0560, USAF, 1960s
- VC-123B, 56-4357, USAF, 1965, 'The White Whale'
- C-123B, 55-4593, 310 SOS, USAF, Phan Rang AB, 1968
The markings are nicely printed (of course, they're from Cartograf) and provide sufficient markings for one subject. The decals are all single-layer - none of them require you to stack one decal atop another to recreate complex art as with some other decal manufacturers.

My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
