First Look

The subjects covered in this set include:

  • A-10C, 80-0188, 188 FW, AR ANG
  • A-10C, 78-0614, 188 FW, AR ANG
  • A-10C, 79-0193, 127 FW, MI ANG
  • A-10C, 80-0255, 127 FW, MI ANG

The markings are nicely printed (by Cartograf) and provide national markings, distinctive nose art markings as well as a nice set of airframe stencils. 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!
