First Look

Here is the latest release from Caracal Models, the AMX Ghibli for the beautiful Kinetic Models 1/48 scale kit. This set has some very colorful examples, my favorite being number two which is shown below for clarity as tan, but is actually wearing a retro scheme similar to the Macchi C.202/C.205.
