Aztec Models has released this second installment for the Fuerza Aerea Revolucionaria (FAR) or Cuban Air Force. This set picks up from Part I with modern MiGs and Mils for your revolutionary flightline.
This set provides a nice selection of late-service examples:
- MiG-23UB, Bort 704, San Antonio de los Banos, FAR
- Mi-8, Bort 125, Santa Clara AB, FAR, 2006
- MiG-29UB, Bort 900, FAR, 1996
- MiG-29UB, Bort 900, FAR, 2006
- L-39C, Bort 01, FAR
- MiG-23BN, Bort 35, FAR
- MiG-23ML, Bort 210, FAR
- MiG-23BN, Bort 723, FAR
- MiG-29UB, Bort 900, FAR, 2008
- MiG-29, Bort 911, San Antonio de los Banos, FAR, 2008
- MiG-23MF, Bort 206, FAR
- MiG-23BN, Bort 722, FAR, defected to Key West 1991
- Mi-24, FAR
- MiG-29UB, Bort 901, FAR, 2005
- Mi-24, Bort 12, FAR
The instructions provide one side of the aircraft in color profile and with some that have differing camouflage on the other side, the instructions MAY provide coverage of the other side in the black and white supplemental pages. There is one Mi-8 example in this set and I really wish Trumpeter or Hobby Boss would release their Mi-8 kit in 1/48 scale!
This is another great set of markings and provide the modeler with a nice selection of unique camouflage schemes to set off their next project.

My sincere thanks to Aztec Models for this review sample!
