First Look

Here is a new decal release from Caracal Models, this time to commemorate the 65th Anniversary of the 149th Fighter Wing of Texas ANG. The aircraft presented in this set:

F-16C F-16C

  • F-16C-30F-CF, 87-0255, 149 FW/TX ANG, 2011, Wing CC's aircraft

The markings are sharp and in perfect register. The decals are printed by Microscale. They provide the distinctive aiframe markings as well as markings for the external tanks. The markings were designed to fit the Revell-Monogram F-16C.

While you will have to mask and paint the red, white, and blue areas (in addition to the basic airframe two-gray camouflage), the low price of this set will make this project a definite bargain!

My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
