This set provides a nice selection of 'named' aircraft honoring heroes from World War II along with a selection of other examples in Russian Air Force service. In addition, this set provides a variety of generic bort numbers and Russian registration numbers so you can replicate other examples not illustrated in this set. As you can also see from the wide variety of small markings, this set also has a comprehensive airframe and weapons stenciling set. The instructions are in Russian and English with nice four-view diagrams for stencil placement.

My sincere thanks to Begemot Decals for this review sample!
