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. FCM has released this nice set for three Goonie Birds from the Brazilian AF and one WWII D-Day USAAF example. The three subjects covered include:

  • C-47A, 2091, 4 ETA, Sao Pauo AB, Brazilian AF, 1972
  • C-47A, 2041, 5 ETA, Canoas AB, Brazilian AF, 1972
  • C-47A, 42-100521, 92 TCS/438 TCG, I/J8, Upottery, Devon, UK, June 1944

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

Definitely recommended!
