Here is the latest release from Caracal Models covering the futuristic-looking Piaggio P.180 Avanti twin turboprop aircraft. This set is designed for the Amodel kit.

The subjects covered in this set include:

  • P.180, SP-MXI, Polish Medical Air Rescue
  • P.180, MM62159, Italian Air Force
  • P.180, MM62274, Italian Coast Guard
  • P.180, MM62167, Italian Army
  • P.180, F-HCPE, Pan European Air Service

The markings are nicely printed (by Microscale) and provide national markings, distinctive tail art markings as well as a nice set of airframe stencils. There are sufficient markings and stencils for one model. 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!
