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, Begemot has compiled a set of markings for 15 of the Su-24M Fencers that deployed to Syria, including the one shot down by Turkey.

This set also includes a set of paint masks to help depict the hand-painted gray applied to certain markings while deployed to Syria. Note: While most Russian/Soviet aviation modelers are familiar with the VVS (Air Force) designator, you'll be seeing more of the VKS title which reflects the reorganization of the Russian Air Force, Air Defense Force, and Space Force into a common Aerospace Force (VKS) organization.

If you're looking for an interesting project and a unique subject for your shelf or contest table, this is the decal sheet to make that happen.

Begemot Decals are now available with free shipping in the US from HobbyZone USA. For more information about this set and the other releases from Begemot Decals, visit their website at http://www.begemotdecals.ru.

My sincere thanks to Begemot Decals for this review sample!
