Here is the first decal release from Lima, Peru-based Antarki Decals. In this set we have ten nice subjects for the MiG-29S/SE/SMP/BM variants of the Fulcrum family just in time for the recent Great Wall Hobbies 1/48 MiG-29 9-13 Fulcrum kit. Take a look at this:
The ten subjects include:
- MiG-29S, 045, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP). 1997
- MiG-29S, 055, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP). 1998
- MiG-29SM, Bort 05, 61 IAP, Belarus AF, 2006
- MiG-29BM, Bort 07, Russian AF, MAKS-2005
- MiG-29S, FC-93, 3rd ADW, Algerian AF, 1999
- MiG-29S, Bort 35, 642 IAP, Ukrainian AF
- MiG-29S, 034, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP)
- MiG-29S, 038, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP)
- MiG-29S, 041, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP)
- MiG-29S, 043, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP)
The set comes on one sheet which provide all of the national and distinctive markings as well as a nice set of airframe maintenance stencils. In addition to decal placement, the instructions provide color guides using equivalent FS 595 and/or Testors Model Master paint numbers.
At last! These are the first modern 9-13 decals I've seen for the Great Wall kit and provide some excellent color options. This release follows their 1/72 scale version of this set with some interesting updates. For more information about this set and the other releases from Antarki Decals, visit their Facebook Page.
