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 C-130 Heruless. These include:
- C-130E, 2459, 1°/6° Grupo de Aviaco, Recife, Brazil, 1978
- C-130H, 9508, Escuadron 61, El Liberator AB, Maracay, Venezuela, 2010
- C-130B, 592, Escuadron Aereo No.3, Canelones, Uruguay, 1998
- SC-130E, 592, 1°/1° Grupo de Transporte, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1988
- KC-130E, 2461, 2°/1° Grupo de Transporte, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1977
The printing on this sheet is nicely done, and printed by Microscale. There are sufficient stencils on this sheet for one aircraft.
I hope FCM Decals will release these in 1/144 scale as well for the Minicraft kits.

Thanks to FCM Decal for this review sample.
