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 three PBY Catalinas. These include:
- PBY-5, 08185, 2 Grupo de Patrulha, Brazil, 1945
- Catalina Mk.II, 9743, Grupo Aeronaval de la Flota, Argentina, 1958
- PBV-1A, 9818, Escuadra Aeronaval No.2, Argentina, 1956
The printing on this sheet is nicely done, and printed by Microscale. There are sufficient stencils on this sheet for one aircraft.
I hope FCM Decals will release these in 1/48 scale as well for the Revell-Monogram kit.

Thanks to FCM Decal for this review sample.
