Begemot Decals is an interesting decal company from Rostov-on-Don, Russia that offers a nice array of markings for Russian-built aircraft. In this release, they've provided markings for 17 different Ka-50/52 Alligator (Hokum) airframes. These include:

With each aircraft profile, there is a brief summary about the aircraft presented. The decal printing is perfectly in register. The instructions are printed in a five-page booklet that provide decal placement for each aircraft type. These will provide colors and patterns needed to replicate some of these really interesting color schemes. If you have the Italeri/Revell 1/48 Ka-50 kit, this set will give you some outstanding options. If you don't have the kits, go get some!

My sincere thanks to Begemot Decals for this review sample!
