|Cons||Nothing noted||Skill Level||Experienced|
Here is the latest release from Caracal Models which is their third installment for the recent Revell 1/72 C-54 Skymaster kit. This set is replicates the markings for the USAF Thunderbirds support aircraft in the late 1950s while the team was flying the F-100C Super Sabre:
- C-54D, 42-72674, USAF Thunderbirds, 1959, 'City of Las Vegas'
The decal set comes on three sheets to help replicate the complex graphics on this aircraft. The instructions provide good information on painting and decal placement so you'd best study these before starting the job of laying these decals out.
The markings are nicely printed (by Cartograf) and provide all of the distinctive markings for this example. For more information about this set and the other releases from Caracal Models, visit their website at http://caracalmodels.com.
My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
