    "Coming soon" definition

    I don't know about you, but I have tons of Kursad decals already. I love 'em and will buy more, but I am in no hurry for new releases. If he never produced another decal I still have enough subjects of his to last my lifetime!!!!!!!!!!!! 😲

    Lockheed S-3B Viking - Hasegawa

    Masterfully executed model. Superior construction, paint and weathering. Appears you shot the photos outside, which always looks right. Natural light is the best, Btavo.

    1/48 Special Hobby AJ 37 Viggen, Swedish Air Force, 1993

    The MOST demanding camouflage scheme in the post war era masterfully executed. Bravo 👏.

    Monogram/Koster P4Y-2 Privateer

    Phenomenal job. Getting the vacuform canopies expertly blended into the fuselage was no easy task, I assume. I have the conversion, did some work on the wings and fuselage. Maybe someday when my courage is up!

    Minicraft 1/144 KC-135 series

    I used ModelMaster FS16473 ADC gray. Color photos of the real birds look like light gray on the engines. Not certain if it is correct, but I figured the USAF would use ADC gray. Thanks so much for your kind words. Build a Minicraft -135 today! The fit is exceptional and with Caracal Decals you can build almost any version.

    New line: Caracal Models Basics

    I'd love new decals for the ancient 1/72 Revell CH-3C/E , HH-3E Jolly Green Giant, and HH-3F Pelican. Bet a few of us have this kit in the stash. Lots of different schemes: USCG, ADC gray, SEA, Euro 1.

    Minicraft 1/144 KC-135 series

    I used a 1/144 Liveries Unlimited narrow body Boeing windshield on the Minicraft KC-135A to make this C-135A, and I thought it turned out well. http://www.arcair.com/Gal-Archives/jet/C-135/01.shtm

    CD72036 - Piaggio P.180 Avanti

    Thanks for the amazing decals, they worked great. It was my first Amodel kit and "shake and bake" it was not. And although I have bought tons of your decals, it was the first time I used them. I think my next subject will use your decals on a less demanding project.

    CD72036 - Piaggio P.180 Avanti

    If anyone wants to see the Caracal decals on the Amodel 1/72 P.180 of the Italian Coast Guard, I posted my completion over at Hyperscale.com on their Plastic Pix forum. I posted it on Dec 30, so you will have to dig back a few pages. "Two for 2017." I am not the greatest modeler on the planet, but the decals performed flawlessly. It is posed with my 1/72 Sword T2V-1 SeaStar.

    Badger Stynylrez Primer

    I find that it is great at self-leveling. However, I do find a random odd spot where tape will lift the Badger primer when masking. Maybe I had some oil or something on the plastic. Or something. Not coming off in sheets mind you, just here and there. And I waited days and days before masking so I know it was fully cured.
