First Look

Here is the latest from Caracal, this set provides some interesting subjects from the early years of the Vietnam war, including the famous (probable) MiG-17 killer. This set is designed for the Monogram or Trumpeter kits. These decals are all printed single layer by Cartograf and the printing looks great as usual.
