First Look

Here is the latest release from Caracal Models, this time to provide some interesting options for the Italeri 1/72 T-45 Goshawk kit. Subjects include:

T-45 Goshawk T-45 Goshawk

  • T-45C, 165080, VX-23, SD/201, NAS Patuxent River
  • T-45C, 167099, VT-21, B/321, 'Redhawks', NAS Kingsville
  • T-45C, 165088, VT-9, A/109, 'Tigers', NAS Meridian
  • T-45C, 165629, VT-7, A/107, 'Eagles', NAS Meridian
  • T-45C, 165609, 150th, A/167, Goshawk, NAS Meridian

The markings are nicely printed (of course, they're from Cartograf) and provide sufficient markings for one subject. The decals are all single-layer - none of them require you to stack one decal atop another to recreate complex art as with some other decal manufacturers.

My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
