The Embraer EMB 314 Super Tucano , also named ALX or A-29 is a turboprop aircraft designed for light attack, counter insurgency (COIN), close air support, aerial reconnaissance missions in low threat environments, as well as providing pilot training. Designed to operate in high temperature and humidity conditions in extremely rugged terrain, the Super Tucano is highly maneuverable, has a low heat signature, incorporates 4th generation avionics; and weapons system to deliver precision guided munitions. It is currently in service with over 13 countries with the Afghan Air Force slated to receive its first batch of aircraft in April 2015.

Caracal models has released an impressive decal sheet for the new Hobby Boss Super Tucano kit covering four different variations of the aerobatic team.

The marking option is:

  • Esquadrilha da Fumaca "Smoke Squadron" Brazilian Air Force Aerobatic Team

The Caracal Decal Set includes two decal sheets with one providing wing markings, stencil data and national insignias and the other sheet contains the white outlines for the masked and painted areas. The stencil data is either Spanish or Portuguese. The Decals are printed by Cartograf and have an extremely bright scheme so you know this kit will stand out when completed!

A note of importance. Due to the instruction sheet calling out a complicated paint and masking scheme from a full scale aircraft and enlarging some portions from 1/96th scale x2, I would recommend using the supplied link from Caracal

I would like to thank Caracal Models and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
