Here is the latest from Caracal, this set for the Italeri 1/48 V-22 Osprey kit and provides markings for colorful subjects. The instructions recommend acquiring the Black Dog Osprey detail set to get the right details for the CV-22 or MV-22 variants.
The aircraft presented in this set include:
- CV-22B, 05-0065, 7 SOS, USAF
- CV-22B, 05-0029, 71 SOS, USAF
- MV-22B, 168220, VMM-265, EP/00, USMC
- MV-22B, 168303, VMM-266, ES/00, USMC
- MV-22B, 168214, VMX-1, MV/00, USMC
- MV-22B, JG-1702, JGSDF
I've had the Italeri kit on my bucket list but have been waiting for proper details/updates to be released along with contemporary markings for the aircraft. Black Dog released several detail sets for this kit a few months ago and now with Caracal's decal release, the wait is over! If you've been waiting for proper markings for the USAF CV-22B, Marine Corps MV-22B, or the JGSDF MV-22B, this decal set is what you need to find!

My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
