–> ORANGE LINE <– HTK-CS58 "Ultimate Su-34 "Fullback" paint set" The history of Su-34 fighter-bomber development dates back to mid-1980s when Sukhoi began designing (based on Su-27 airframe) a new tactical multirole combat aircraft to replace Su-24 fleet. The first prototype was finished in 1990 and presented to the public under Su-27IB designation in 1992. The series of preproduction airframes in different variants was built between 1994 and 2003. Finally the fighter-bomber variant was renamed to Su-34. Deliveries to Russian AF for evaluation and testing started in 2006. First production aircraft in Russian service wore a unique tri-colour green-blue camouflage on upper surfaces. In 2012 a new standard scheme of eggplant-grey was introduced on several types, including newly delivered Su-34.

Caracal Models has released four brand-new, exciting decal sheets this month! We will start shipping these decals on June 21, and all are available for pre-ordering now.

Caracal Models CD48120 – F-106A "City of Jacksonville"

For a short time during 1976, one of the Delta Darts of the Florida Air National Guard wore the most colorful paint scheme ever seen on an F-106 : the "City of Jacksonville".

This decal sheet will allow you to build a model of this beautiful aircraft in all its glory. Extensively researched and carefully designed to fit both Monogram and Trumpeter kits with minimal adjustment, this 1/48 scale sheet features all the unique markings on this aircraft and spare stars of all three different types used on the design.

Some careful masking and painting is required.

CD48122 : C-130H "Guard Herks"

This very comprehensive 1/48 scale decal set features accurate markings for the hard-working C-130H fleet operated by the US Air National Guard.

We provide markings for four different aircraft from three different states, including the colorful Ohio ANG 60th anniversary scheme from 2008. The set also features accurate, extensive stencilling as applied to the current USAF C-130 fleet.

The aircraft featured on this sheet are:

  • C-130H 90-1794, 179th Airlift Wing, Ohio ANG (2008 – 60th anniversary scheme)
  • C-130H 81-0626, 179th Airlift Wing, Ohio ANG
  • C-130H 91-1238, 123rd Airlift Wing, Kentucky ANG
  • C-130H 74-2063, 103rd Airlift Wing, Connecticut ANG

We recommend the use of resin nacelle and sponson correction sets by Attack Squadron. These sets correct the seriously underscaled (C-130A type) nacelles provided in the kit.

The nacelle markings for the Ohio anniversary scheme were designed for the Attack Squadron parts and will not fit the unmodified kit parts.
