Product Article by Steve Bamford on Apr 23 2021

This new decal sheet from Caracal Models includes markings for 7 different 1/72 CV-22/MV-22 Osprey.  

The innovative V-22 Osprey tiltrotor has proven to be a versatile and reliable workhorse. With the recent introduction of the type into carrier onboard delivery (COD) role, the Osprey is now in service with USAF, USMC and US Navy.

Our first 1/72 scale decal sheet for the Osprey features markings for USMC, USAF and Japanese aircraft. This set was designed for the Hasegawa kit.

The options on this decal sheet are:

  • CV-22B Osprey 05-0065, 7th SOS - USAF

  • CV-22B Osprey 05-0029, 71st SOS - USAF

  • MV-22B Osprey BuNo. 168220, VMM-265 - US Marine Corps

  • MV-22B Osprey BuNo. 168214, VMX-1 - US Marine Corps

  • MV-22B Osprey BuNo. 168303, VMM-266 - US Marine Corps

  • MV-22B Osprey BuNo. 168342, VMM-363 - US Marine Corps

  • MV-22B Osprey "JG-1702", Japan Ground Self Defense Force

Accurate stencilling and national insignia to build any one of the options is included. All of the sheets in this set were professionally screen printed by Cartograf in Italy.

This decal sheet includes some great looking colorful tail art and I love the addition of the Japanese Osprey markings.

You can buy this decal sheet directly from Caracal Models.
