Continuing the pace of releases, this sheet from Caracal Decals (CD72019) covers a number of late-block F-16s, including one in the new Have Glass V scheme. Only one aircraft is USAF, the others being foreign air force aircraft.

  • F-16C-50 91-0391 from the 148th FW, Minnesota ANG during 2014. This was painted in the new Have Glass V scheme, with all markings in medium grey. The aircraft carried a blue fin stripe containing "DULUTH" in grey and a large bulldog on the fin, together with the tailclode and "148th FW";
  • F-16C-52 03-0060 "4060" from the Polish Air Force during the 2011 NATO Tiger Meet;
  • F-16C-52 08-8016 from the Royal Moroccan Air Force during 2012, marked to celebrate the "4500th F-16 Delivery";
  • F-16C-40 98-2012 from the Royal Bahraini Air Force during 2012;
  • F-16C-50 02-2116 "811" from the Royal Air Force of Oman during 2010;
  • F-16C-52 "1607" from the Iraqi Air Force during 2014.

As usual with Caracal, the instructions are in full colour and comprise a small 8-sided booklet with 3 views for each aircraft.

The decals are perfectly printed by Cartograf and are relatively thin.

Another highly-recommended sheet!
