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. In this release, we have four different aircraft as they appeared during the time of the Falklands/Malvinas War and one example as it appeared five years later. These include:

The printing on this sheet is nicely done, and printed by Microscale. There are sufficient stencils on this sheet for one aircraft.

These decals are available online through FlightDecs or directly from the manufacturer.
