This is the second new T-45C sheet from Caracal Models. It is also designed for the upcoming Kinetic 1/48 T-45C Goshawk. There are four distinct aircraft, all of the painted in standard trainer colors of Gloss White and Gloss International Orange.

First up is from VT-7 'Eagles' from NAS Meridian Mississippi in 2011. This has a broad fuselage band as well as some nicely done tail designs.

Next is the TW-1 commander's aircraft, assigned to VT-7. This aircraft has a blue fuselage band. Two slightly different designs are provided for the CO's plane from 2007 and 2011. This option has a Beat Army marking from 2007/8 that goes on the underside of the fuselage.

The third options is another VT-7 plane from 2006 that has a special badge on it to commemorate it being the 150th Goshawk.

Last is a 2011 T-45 from VT-86 at NAS Pensacola, the last training squadron to receive the Goshawk.

This sheet is superbly printed by Cartograf in Italy. The sheet comes with an excellent full color markings and placement guide. A full stencil placement sheet is also included. Photos of these planes are available on their website.
