    Postwar C-47 markings

    I would like to do a couple of postwar US C-47 sheets in both 1/48 and 1/72 scales: it looks like there is a lack of interesting postwar decal subjects for the C-47. I would like to limit these sheets to US subjects for the time being: I am open to doing foreign C-47 sheets later, I would like to have some US C-47 sheets in circulation first. AC-47s, Air National Guard, Navy R4Ds, Vietnam, Berlin Airlift, Air America etc. are all appropriate. Let me know if you have any suggestions..
  2. CD144016 will be a 1/144 scale sheet dedicated to the KC-10 Extender.

    New NF-16 VISTA Paint Scheme

  4. Folks, It looks like there was a serious problem with CD48140 instruction sheets that were shipped to the resellers. The inner pages of a re-run of CD72029 (1/72 scale F-35) instructions and CD48140 instructions got mixed up; and I missed the problem during QC. I will sort this out and reprint the instruction sheets. If you have a set of incorrectly printed instructions (the cover will say CD48140, but the inner pages will not have any of the F-35A instructions covered in the sheet), please send me an e-mail at "info@caracalmodels.com" and I will either include a set of new instructions with your next order, or send you one right away. I will also place a printable PDF version of the correct instructions at the Web site, accessible from the CD48140 product page.

    May releases

    While I am grateful for your immense response to the last batch of releases, packing and shipping that many orders has been brutal and I don't think I will be able to get my next batch of releases in April. I also need some time for taxes and a major milestone in my other business as well. I know some of you have been waiting for these sheets for a long time - sorry for not being able to release them in April, but here is what I will be shipping in May: CD48100: 1/48 SR-71 / A-12 Blackbird Part 1 CD48101: 1/48 SR-71 / A-12 Blackbird Part 2 CD48157: 1/48 L-39 Albatros CD72077: 1/72 Strategic Air Command B-52G/H Part 1 CD72085: 1/72 RF-84F Thunderflash CD72087: 1/72 F-15 Eagle - The Early Years CD72088: 1/72 SR-71 / A-12 Blackbird Part 1 CD72089: 1/72 SR-71 / A-12 Blackbird Part 2 CD144007: 1/144 B-58 Hustler

    more NASA subjects?

    Which sizes do I need to cover, though? I will download the latest version of NASA’s specs on logos and branding, which may offer some help on currently used sizes. But I could use some help on other sizes that were used over time. I have everything else I need, so it will be a simple matter of sizing and arranging stuff.
  7. CD144019 will be a 1/144 scale sheet dedicated to the C-9 (US military version of DC-9).

    more NASA subjects?

    Hmm - then let's make one for the Caracal Basics line. Thanks for the suggestion, folks (aircal62 and Bob) - I will send you first one to you when it comes back from the printers. I should be able to design one in half an hour, if I take a 10 minute coffee break in between. I will announce a product number later today.

    The KC-135 sheets will be in the batch following this one, most likely in June.

    GA ANG Fighters

    You might get more help if you can please post this to the "Jet Modeling" or reference sub-forums.
  11. Once again, I am overwhelmed with a huge amount of orders. I truly appreciate the support and confidence of every single one of you who continue to buy my products month after month, sight unseen. I have just started shipping the U-2 and KC-135R sheets, and will start shipping the rest by the end of the week. I would appreciate your patience as I clear the backlog as soon as humanly possible.

    Overwhelmed with orders once again

    I put almost all of the remaining orders with CD48150 in the mail last night - you should see tracking updates in the next day or so. There are a few (mostly large or international) preorders that remain, and I will take care of these tonight.

    1:72 Red Hurricane Tu-14 Bosun Soviet Union

    Looks good - I am impressed by your persistence in building rare Soviet/Russian types one after another!

    CD144019 - 1/144 C-9 Nightingale

    I received the kit and started designing this sheet. Many thanks to Wayne, who had once again kindly sent me the official McDD paint specifications for the C-9, which should let me design very accurate decals for this important type soon.

    Getting ready for a marathon shipping weekend - most of your remaining orders will be on their way to you soon.

    1/144 Roden C-133 - For Sale on eBay

    The kit decals definitely look substandard, and I have no doubt I can do better. A decal for the windshield would also be nice for those who do not want to paint these. If I can find one or two interesting Alaskan fish haulers, there may be enough material for a limited run sheet after all. PS: The C-124 actually has a nice variety of schemes and markings, so it certainly warrants a full sheet dedicated to the type.

    F-94A/B and F-89 updates?

    I don't have any updates, sorry. I will definitely post any updates as soon as I have any. My highest priority right now is to bring my SR-71 and B-52 sheets to the market next month, and everything else will follow later on.
  20. CD48157 will be a 1/48 sheet for the L-39 Albatros, primarily targeting the Trumpeter kit. I will cover a few uncommon options that have not been covered before by the many Eastern European / Russian sheets that were designed for these kits.

    Overwhelmed with orders once again

    No, I shipped most of the domestic orders including this sheet in the last two weeks, and some more today. You should see movement in your tracking numbers tomorrow.

    Was there any other C-133 color schemes other than the MAC scheme used for the kit decals?

    1/48 RF-101C "Sun Run" Decal Sheet

    I think it is a worthy subject, but I already have two RF-101 sheets and will not invest in another one until at least one of them gets close to selling out. And we are not there quite yet..

    Thanks - but I already bought one and it is on its way to me! Hopefully it is not too late.
