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 the Latin American Mirage 2000s.

In this set, there are three Mirage 2000s to choose from:

  • Mirage 2000C, 1° GDA, 4940, Anapolis, FAB, 2006
  • Mirage 2000B, 1° GDA, 4933, Anapolis, FAB, 2006
  • Mirage 2000P, Esq 412/GAC 4, 061, La Joya, FAP, 2002

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

The instructions indicate that pre-cut paint masks are provided for the subdued Brazilian national markings (though you can also use just the silhouettes on the sheet). My sample didn't have the masks included, but I presume yours will be there.

For a list of retailers that carry the FCM Decal series, look here.

Thanks to FCM Decal for this review sample.
