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.
In this set, we have an interesting and colorful set of five Latin American Mirages:
- Mirage IIIE BR, 48029, 1° GDA, Anapolis AB, Brazilian AF, 1980
- Mirage IIIE BR, 4910, 1° GDA, Anapolis AB, Brazilian AF, 1980
- Mirage IIIE BR, 4926, 1° GDA, Anapolis AB, Brazilian AF, 1985
- Mirage 50EV, 3373, 11 Ftr Gp, Venezuelan AF, 2002
- Mirage 50DV, 7512, 11 Ftr Gp, Venezuelan AF, 2002
The printing the FCM Decals line is sharp and clear, with the markings printed on a heavier carrier film that responds well to film softeners like Solvaset. The decal set includes complete stenciling, walkways, and warning markings.
