This set has markings for seven different aircraft, including four single-seat Su-27 and three Su-27UB, plus the full-color instructions show you the paint scheme as well as clear placement of the various markings on the airframe. As you can see in the images below, the markings are covered on three sheets of decals and eight pages of instructions.
The seven subjects rendered in this set include:
- Su-27UB, Red 39, GANIC, Kirovskoe AB, Ukrainian AF, 1994-present
- Su-27, Red 57, 831 GIAP, Mirhorod AB, Ukrainian AF, 1996
- Su-27, Blue 36, 831 GIAP, Mirhorod AB, Ukrainian AF, 2008
- Su-27, Blue 08, 831 GIAP, Mirhorod AB, Ukrainian AF, 2008
- Su-27, Blue 56, 9 Ftr Bde, Ozernye AB, Ukrainian AF, 2006

- Su-27UB, Blue 74, 9 Ftr Bde, Ozernye AB, Ukrainian AF, 2008
Linden Hill has produced another nice set of markings and really provide some excellent subjects from the Ukrainian Air Force. If you have either (or both) of the Trumpeter Flankers, or are thinking about it, this decal set will definitely give you some great alternatives so your aircraft won't look 'out of the box'.
