Caracal Models CD 48139: F-111A Aardvark

Units: See review




Scott Van Aken

This particular Caracal Models sheet is for the Acadmy or Hobby Boss 1/48 F-111A. Could you use it on the older Monogram kit? Probably though the tail bands may not be the proper length.

Aside from the first four options which are in standard SEA camouflage with the light grey undersides, all the other planes have black on the lower surfaces. Note also that there is only one profile for the first four options as there is no difference aside from serial numbers.

There are 13 options on this sheet:

F-111A 66-0017, Combat Lancer - 1968

F-111A 66-0018, Combat Lancer - 1968

F-111A 66-0020, Combat Lancer - 1968

F-111A 66-0022, Combat Lancer - 1968

F-111A 66-0026, 442nd TFTS

F-111A 67-0032, 389th TFS

F-111A 67-0034, 430th TFS

F-111A 67-0037, 474th TFW

F-111A 67-0068, 429th TFS (combat loss during Constant Guard V)

F-111A 67-0070, 391st TFS

F-111A 67-0081, 347th TFW

F-111A 67-0092, 430th TFS

F-111A 67-0094, 430th TFS (Cambodian gunboat kill marking)

The decals are superbly printed by Cartograf and instructions provide placement information. There are enough common markings and stencils for one aircraft. Note that you'll have to paint the red stripe on the fin of the last option. If you wish to do more, then you can use the kit decals.
