First Look

Here is the latest release from Caracal Models for the Great Wall Hobbies 1/72 F-15C/D Eagle kits. This set will work on other 1/72 F-15 kits, but the subjects depicted are MSIP II aircraft, so you'll need to make the necessary updates if you want an accurate depiction.

The markings are nicely printed (by Cartograf) and provide all of the distinctive markings plus stenciling enough for two models. This is a nice set of alternatives to the kit decals and will make your favorite Eagle kit look great!
