USAF/VNAF A-1E Skyraider
Caracal Models has released a sheet for the 1/48 Revell (Matchbox) A-1E molds. This sheet includes decals for seven USAF and two VNAF aircraft (for an amazing total of 9 airplanes!).
The options on this decal sheet are:
- A-1E 132649, (Medal of Honor mission aircraft)
- A-1E 132619, "Carolyn's Folly"
- A-1E 135007, "Miss Pussy Galore"
- A-1E 133919
- A-1E 135206, "Georgia Ann"
- A-1E 132528, "War Monger"
- A-1E 132612
- A-1E 132628, VNAF
- A-1E 132503, VNAF
The first three aircraft are overall ADC Gray, while the last six are in SEA camouflage. Stenciling is provided to build one USAF aircraft. The decal sheet was printed by Cartograf in Italy.
Being a Cartograf decal sheet you know you’ll get good quality, thin and opaque decals. They are very glossy on the sheet and they have very little transparent carrier film around them minimizing the chances for silvering.
I want to point out that the MSRP price includes free US shipping. International shipping is only $3 more. It should be noted that the instruction sheet it is actually a full color booklet (printed in glossy paper) with left and right sides of each airplane, plus generic top/bottom views.
I would like to thank Caracal Models and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
