First Look

FCM Decals has an interesting line of aftermarket decals from Brazil. The subjects covered in this line include many Brazilian civil and military aircraft subjects, WWI aircraft, and the occasional look at the aircraft of other nations as well. Here is one from abroad, three fighters from the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force - two Tomcats and one Phantom. The airframes depicted here include:

FCM Decals FCM Decals

  • F-14A, 160325, 3-6027, 82 TFS 7, Shiraz, 1977
  • F-14A, 160339, 3-6041, 82 TFS 8, Khatami, 2003
  • F-4D, 88915, 3-6713, 71 TFS 7, Shiraz, 2005

The printing on this sheet is nicely done though you do have to place the red dot into the center of the green and white roundel yourself.

If you're wanting some colorful and unique paint schemes for your next Phantom or Tomcat build, these markings will definitely create that opportunity for you.

Thanks to FCM Decal for this review sample.
