Alright you fans of Soviet & Russian military aviation, Linden Hill has released another nice set of markings, this time for Trumpeter's 1/32 MiG-23ML kit.
This set covers the Floggers of the Soviet and Warsaw Pact air forces including one Soviet veteran of the Afghan war, two air defense (PVO) aircraft, two Bulgarian examples including one MiG-23MLD Flogger K (the parts are in the Trumpeter MiG-23ML box), one Czech Air Force and one East German example.
The seven subjects rendered in this set include:
