First Look

Here is the latest release from Caracal Models, this time to provide some interesting options for your favorite 1/48 P-51D kit. The aircraft presented in this set include:

P-51D P-51D

  • F-51D, 44-63803, 165 FS/Kentucky ANG
  • F-51D, 45-11585, 111 FS/Texas ANG

The markings are nicely printed and provide national markings, distinctive unit markings, as well as aircraft identification markings, right down to correct data blocks. The decals are all single-layer - none of them require you to stack one decal atop another to recreate complex art as with some other decal manufacturers.

My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
