Caracal Models CD 72059: TF-9J 'Twogar'

Units: See review




Scott Van Aken

This particular Caracal Models sheet is for the Sword 1/72 TF-9J Cougar that was released about a year or so ago. All six options are with various units of Training Command and are in various combinations of white and international orange. This means a bit of masking, but the results will be worth the effort.

Note that some of these planes may have had a nose mounted refueling probe at some time during their operational life. All are shown without one.

A very nice selection is provided on the sheet and here is what you have for options:

TF-9J Cougar BuNo. 147287 , VT-4, US Navy

TF-9J Cougar BuNo. 147366 , VT-22, US Navy

TF-9J Cougar BuNo. 147300 , VT-23, US Navy

TF-9J Cougar BuNo. 147356 , VT-24, US Navy

TF-9J Cougar BuNo. 147345 , VT-25, US Navy

TF-9J Cougar BuNo. 147299 , VT-26, US Navy

There are sufficient insignia, data markings and walkway markings for one aircraft and if you wish to use more markings, the Sword kit can be gleaned for these items. For photos that may help your build, you are directed to their web site though the well done instructions do provide upper and lower plan views. This set of markings is superbly printed by Microscale so you know you are getting the best.
