Sure, that will be great! Please share your work here, and I will change the name of the thread so we can have an ongoing thread for photos of models finished using Caracal sheets.

Does partial Caracal decal usage count?  I will upload my Revell 1/144 B-52G of the 34th BS, 36th WG then. All Caracal except for vertical tail and nose serial / CO's name custom printed.  I have to say that the Caracal decals worked beautifully and the walkways nestled down nicely over the vortex vanes on the horizontal stabs. I puttied and sanded the Revell cockpit windows flush, and the Caracal windscreen decal fit perfectly!

The Revell cockpit always looked dreadful, your method of using the Caracal decals is the first 1/144 version that looks great.  Well done, my man.  Now if we could get some SIOP or NMF decals.  Hint, hint.  😄

OK then let's roll..

 

It's the old Tamiya F-15A 1/48 kit with the necessary mods (original wing tips, short airbrake, straight LE tailplane), decals from CD48150 "F-15 Eagle - The Early Years" (performed flawlessly), Mr Paint Air Superiority Blue and International Orange.

I used a resin seat, and detailed the kit's exhausts.

I don't claim 100% accuracy but I enjoyed building the model and I quite like the result.

Wow - excellent work by everyone; I am seeing some of these for the first time! Please keep them coming. In the meantime I will copy some of these for use at the upcoming Caracal Models blog and FB pages.

Marc,

I agree, the results are quite nice and you don't see too many F-15 models built in

representing this aircraft. Great job, well photographed and presented!

I'm sure I have several, so give me some time to come up with others. For now, here is my somewhat "accurized" Italeri T-45 Goshawk with Caracal stickers:

Well, it seems that I've bought many more than I've used (and who doesn't do that?). But one more. Of course Caracal's decals on this Modelcollect B-52H:
