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 Grumman SA-16/HU-16 Albatross amphibians. The three aircraft featured in this set include:
- SA-16A, 6537, 20°/10° G.Av., Sao Paulo Air Base, Brazil, 1958
- HU-16B, 0533, Esc. Aeronaval de Busqueda y Rescante, Comandante Espora Air Base, Argentina, 1965
- HU-16B, 571, Grupo de Aviacion N°2, Base Aerea de Quintero, FACh, Chile, 1968
The printing of the FCM Decal line is sharp and clear, with the decals printed by Microscale. The decal set includes stenciling, walkways,other essential details.

Thanks to FCM Decal for this review sample.
