    New Caracal Models Basics sheets

    Just a clarification on the “Vietnam War style” serials : this is the slightly thinner, wider variant that seems to have been common in the early 1960s when the SEA camouflage first appeared on USAF aircraft. The same style that you can see on the camo RF-101s in my latest recon Voodoo sheet (CD48147), for example. I think it is needed on a lot of different types for this period, and is different enough that a dedicated sheet would be nice. Let me know what you think.

    New Caracal Models Basics sheets

    I will scale most of these down to 1/72 scale in April, and add many more in the next few months: USAF command badges, Navy markings, etc.

    January releases

    The next batch of decals are: CD48140 1/48 F-35A Lightning II CD48143 1/48 F-105F/G Wild Weasels CD48147 1/48 RF-101C Voodoo Part 2 CD48149 1/48 F-15E Lakenheath Strike Eagles CD144013 1/144 KC-97/C-97 Stratofreighter
  6. CD48149 will be a 1/48 scale sheet covering Lakenheath-based F-15E Strike Eagles. It will also include markings for colorful, temporary nose art applied on several of the 494th FS jets during their latest deployment that ended in October. I am well aware that the nose-art jets are a popular subject and are being worked on by other companies. My Lakenheath F-15E sheet is somewhat different in scope and has been in development for the last few months.

    The good news is that there is an overwhelming level of interest and preorders for this batch of decals. The bad news is that I won't have much sleep in the next two weeks or so. Thanks, all - I will announce the next batch (mid February) of releases in a couple of days.

    CD48149 - F-15E Lakenheath Strike Eagles

    The only kit-dependent part would be the fin tip bands. I designed them to fit the Revell kit but left enough tolerance to fit the GWH F-15E fins I had. I am fairly confident that they should work on both kits.
  9. CD144013 will be a 1/144 sheet dedicated to the C-97 / KC-97.

    CD144013 - 1/144 C-97 / KC-97

    This sheet is available for preordering now. I just noticed that the profiles for 4 of the options did not make it to the Web site - I will sort this out tonight. CD144013 - 1/144 C-97 / KC-97

    CD48149 - F-15E Lakenheath Strike Eagles

    It is not on there - the 492nd options on the sheet were drawn earlier last year. I will add it to the 1/72nd version coming in the next few months.

    January releases

    All of the new releases are available for preordering now.
  13. CD48140 will be a new 1/48 sheet for the F-35A, designed for the Meng kit. It will replace my earlier F-35A/B sheet (CD48049), which is about to be sold out. It will include markings for all current F-35A operators: USAF (multiple units), Australia, Israel, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Netherlands, Norway and Turkey. CD48141 will be a similar sheet for the F-35B, designed for the Kitty Hawk kit. It will have markings for every USMC unit operating the type, RAF and Italy. PS: The original forum thread for this sheet had disappeared - I don't recall deleting it. In case it was deleted by a moderator because of an argument, etc.; I sure want to know the story - please drop me a line if you know what happened.
  14. CD48143 will be a 1/48 sheet for F-105G Wild Weasels, covering a range of subjects from the Vietnam War era to the early 1980's.

    Regulus, Snark etc.

    Am I just totally crazy to want to do a sheet with markings for early cruise missiles like the Regulus, Snark, etc.? What kits are available in any scale? I don't have anything planned, but I like these missiles and here is your chance to talk me into doing a limited-run sheet.

    Wolfpack 1/48 T-38C Talon

    No Martin-Baker Mk.16 (US16T) ejection seats, though - you would still need some aftermarket to do a current (post 2014) USAF T-38C.
  22. KursadA

    Regulus, Snark etc.

    1. Because the folks with the reference photos are not sending them to me. Unlike fighter/bomber aircraft that can be photographed often during exercises, transits, air shows etc., Army/Marine helicopters are usually only photographed by personnel at the base. 2. Because the Regulus/Snark sheet will be the only choice for several hundred desperate folks who have been waiting for a decent sheet for the kit in their stashes, whereas the Apache sheet will just be another addition to the wide range of decals already available to the thousands of people spoiled for choice.

    January releases

    Yes. But the stencilling sheet would also work for any recent/current USAF F-15E.

    CD72077 - 1/72 SAC B-52G/H

    CD72077 will be the SAC-era B_52G/H sheet that I had been talking about for a while. I have finally made enough progress to commit to an approximate release date in the January-February timeframe. The late/current B-52H sheet (CD72058) had been selling very well; and might sell out by the time the Modelcollect kit is actually here. Too early for any profiles - I hope to start posting them sometime in November. There will be a good selection of airframes from different units and bases, covering 1970s to early 1990s.
