First Look

Here is the latest release from Caracal Models designed for the Heller 1/72 kit (and don't forget the resin enhancements from Fisher Model). This set provides markings for two USAF and two US Navy aircraft. If you look below, this set is produced on two sheets of decals to cover these options.
