    CD48140 & CD48141 - 1/48 F-35A & F-35B

    Excellent new shot here that clarifies the geometry of the new style Norwegian digits.

    Definitely - in time. I would like to cover the more common markings first, and then offer more variety. Suggestions are always welcome!

    New line: Caracal Models Basics

    I am sure I will do a Phantom walkway sheet in the near future. I will soon announce the first few sheets in this lineup - we will start with US national insignia, USAF/US AIR FORCE titles in correct dimension and colors; and move on to stencilling for Century Series aircraft.

    May releases

    Folks, Cartograf is experiencing some technical issues which will cause these releases to be delayed for a couple of weeks. Hopefully I will receive them before the second week of June. Thanks for your patience - and in case there is anything you've been meaning to order, please consider ordering now so I can keep the revenue coming while the new batch is delayed.

    Super 86 Sabre decals

    To this day, I can't understand what Boeing was thinking. It might have been a very well-designed, superb airframe - I don't know or care. Ignoring the aesthetics factor was a huge blunder in Boeing's JSF submission : all those thousands of hours of work by very capable, smart people gone down the drain. Not to mention the jobs that may have been lost.

    CD72076- 1/72 FJ-3 Fury - Part 1

    This is now an FJ-3 sheet - it looks like there were few FJ-2 schemes that really were interesting. Still, I may do an FJ-2 sheet in the future. It looks like there is ample material for two 1/72 sheets if the first one does well - expect teh first FJ-3 sheet to appear sometime in the August/September timeframe.

    CD48073: RF-101C Voodoo

    Four years after I announced this sheet for the "soon to be released" Kitty Hawk RF-101A/C, the kit is finally here. I already used some of the artwork in my 1/72 scale RF-101C sheet for the Valom kit (CD72047) , The 1/48 sheet will have some of the same option, plus a couple with nose art if at all possible. Coming in the August/September batch.

    Making an AH-1W from an AH-1Z

    This sheet is in the works, I hope to be able to release it later in the year.

    May releases

    I never announced (with a product number, release date etc.) a 1/72 sheet with these markings, so I am not sure why it would be "dead in the water". I need more Hawk schemes before I can fill a 1/72 sheet, so I will consider doing a 1/72 sheet when I draw some more artwork for a second 1/48 scale Hawk sheet.

    1/48 Hobby Boss Su-30MK2 Venezuela AF

    An amazing build, even by Janissary's already very lofty standards. Looking forward to seeing it finished.

    The F-100 stencilling/national insignia set will definitely be a future release, along with many other generic marking sets which I hope will go a long way toward correcting/augmenting inaccurate kit decals. These decals will be very reasonably priced, with instructions provided online.

    What's needed to build a 48th Scale EKA-3B

    Applying a correctly-sized national insignia any further back is not an option, because it will then partially have to go on the airbrake. This is why I had to scale down the national insignia ever so slightly on the earlier A-3 sheets. As I said, this won't be needed on the EKA-3B sheet.
  13. "Caracal Models Basics" will be a new line of decals for simpler, general purpose sheets like stencilling, structural details, national insignia, badges etc. I will soon start releasing a bunch of stencilling sheets, to be followed by general US and foreign national insignia. This line of decals will aim to provide high-quality alternatives to the stencilling and national insignia on kit decals, and also allow you to build more than one option from many Caracal Models sheets. The first sheet in this line is : CDB48001 - FB-111A "Dark Vark" stencils and RAM intake panels It is intended to be used with CD48111 "Dark Varks" sheet.
