Decal Sheet Title Lone Star Gunfighters
Types Featured F-16C

Caracal Models have recently released a sheet featuring a F-16C from the 149th FW, specially marked to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the wing.

The aircraft in question is 87-0255, a Block 30 F-16C which can be built from many kits by manufacturers including Academy, Hasegawa and Revell.

Over the standard two-tone grey scheme (FS36270/FS36118) are  a multitude of red, white and blue areas replicating the Texas flag.

The sheet is printed by Microscale and is in perfect register; the instructions are full colour and feature a 4 view with some areas in greater detail where required.

Whilst this aircraft did not originally appeal, I have to admit it is growing on me!
