In this set, we have an interesting and colorful set of five Latin American Mirages:

  • Mirage IIIE BR, 48029, 1° GDA, Anapolis AB, Brazilian AF, 1980
  • Mirage IIIE BR, 4910, 1° GDA, Anapolis AB, Brazilian AF, 1980
  • Mirage IIIE BR, 4926, 1° GDA, Anapolis AB, Brazilian AF, 1985
  • Mirage 50EV, 3373, 11 Ftr Gp, Venezuelan AF, 2002
  • Mirage 50DV, 7512, 11 Ftr Gp, Venezuelan AF, 2002

The printing the FCM Decals line is sharp and clear, with the markings printed on a heavier carrier film that responds well to film softeners like Solvaset. The decal set includes complete stenciling, walkways, and warning markings.
