First Look

Here is one of the latest releases from Caracal, this set provides a variety of options for the F-15E Strike Eagles of the 389th FS based at Mountain Home AFB (home of the Gunfighters) and as they appeared for their deployment to the sandbox. This set will work with either of the Revell or GWH 1/48 F-15E kits. All of the decals are printed single layer by Cartograf and the printing looks great as usual.
