The subject covered in this set include:

  • F-16C Block 30, 87-0247, 482 FW, Homestead AFB, 2014, Wing CC's aircraft

The markings are nicely printed (by Cartograf) with a correction sheet from Microscale and provide all of the distinctive markings plus stenciling for one airframe. This is a nice set of alternatives to the kit decals and will make your Tamiya Viper look great!

My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
