FCM Decal is an interesting line of aftermarket decals from Brazil. The subjects covered in this line include many Brazilian civil and military aircraft subjects, WWI aircraft, and the occasional look at the aircraft of other nations as well.
In this set, we have an interesting set of de Havilland Canada DHC-5 Buffalo transports. The four aircraft featured in this set include:
- C-115, 2369, 1°/9° Grupo de Aviacao, FAB, 1978
- C-115, 2368, 1°/1° Grupo de Aviacao, FAB, 2002
- CC-115, 115463, 442nd SAR Sqn, CAF, 1988
- DHC-5D, 501, Grupo de Aviacion del Ejercito, Ecuador, 1998
The printing of the FCM Decal line is sharp and clear, with the decals printed by Microscale. The decal set includes stenciling, walkways, and other essential details.

Thanks to FCM Decal for this review sample.
