|Decal Sheet Title||MQ-9 Reaper|
This first sheet from Caracal Models covers the MQ-9 Reaper in service with the USAF, RAF and NASA. Whilst the company is new, it's owner is not - Kursad as he is known has been providing decals of niche subjects for many years.
This sheet covers 8 different options, as follows:-
- NASA "Ikhana" as it appeared during summer 2007, painted overall gloss white FS17925
- 08-4133 ZZ203 from 39 Squadron, RAF
- 07-4111 ZZ201 from 39 Squadron, RAF
- 04-4011 CH from the 42d AS, 432d WG, USAF. This aircraft had red fin flashes and "CH 432 WG" in black outlined in white on the fin
- 05-4016 CH from the 42d AS, 432d WG, USAF. This aircraft had black fin flashes and "CH 42 ATKS" in black outlined in white on the fin
- 05-4018 CH from the 42d AS, 432d WG, USAF. This aircraft had black fin flashes and a simple "CH" on the fin in black
- 08-4038 NY from the 174th WG, New York ANG. This had black fin flashes and "NY 174 ATW" in black outlined in white on the fin
- 08-4053 HO from the 29th AS, 49th WG, USAF. This had red fin flashes and "HO" in black on the fin
With the exception of "Ikhana", all aircraft are depicted in the stndard scheme of FS36375 upper surfaces and FS36176 lower surfaces.
The decal sheet is printed by Microscale and is in perfect register, and the instructions are in full colour. These have left-hand-side views of each airframe, together with an upper-surfacer diagram to cover stencilling.
With the release of the recent Bronco/Platz kit, this is a useful decal sheet to have.
