FCM Decals has 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. FCM has released this nice set for five 1/144 scale C-130 Hercules. This include:
- C-130E, 2459, 1°/6° Grupo de Aviacao, Recife, Brazil, 1978
- C-130E, 2464, 1°/1° Grupo de Transporte, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2003
- C-130B, 592, Escuadron Aereo No.3, Canelones, Uruguay, 1998
- C-130H, 995, Grupo de Aviacion No.10, Santiago, Chile, 2010
- C-130H, 16th Transport Squadron, Muscat, Oman, 2012
The printing on this sheet is nicely done, and printed by Microscale. There are sufficient stencils on this sheet for three aircraft. If you're looking for some colorful options for the Minicraft kit, there are five distinctly different schemes here to choose from! Give them a try. These decals are available online through FlightDecs or directly from the manufacturer.
