Authentic Decals is a nicely produced line from Olimp Models from Odessa, Ukraine. These markings are primarily oriented around contemporary Soviet-era and current Russian/Ukrainian subjects. These were previously released for the various 1/72 Fencer kits on the market and have now been resized to 1/48 scale for the new Trumpeter Su-24 kits.
This set provides markings for seven distinctive examples:
- Su-24M, Red 40, Russian AF, Lipetsk AB, 2003
- Su-24M, Red 40, Russian AF, Lipetsk AB, 2002
- Su-24M, White 02, Russian AF, Morozovsk AB, 2003
- Su-24M, White 22, Ukrainian AF, Starokonstrantinov AB, 2002
- Su-24M, White 14, Russian AF, Jeeda AB, 2000
- Su-24M, White 17, Russian AF, Voronezh AB, 2002
- Su-24M, Red 09, Russian AF, Krasnodar AB, 1993
The printing is is nicely done and the markings are finely printed and in register. The set also includes an extensive set of maintenance stencils, so your Fencer will pop with lots of visual detail when completed.
This set is definitely recommended!
