First Look

One of the lastest releases of colors in the White Ensign Models Colourcoats series is this set recreating many of the colors used by the Modern Soviet and post-Soviet Air Forces.

This new line matches up many of the more common camoflage colors used by the Soviet Air Force in the 1980s and 1990s, as well as the post-Soviet Republic Air Forces in use today.

The fourteen colors in this series include:

Modern Soviet Colourcoats
  • ACSM01 - Pale Blue-Grey (Flanker)
  • ACSM02 - Medium Blue (Flanker)
  • ACSM03 - Dark Blue Grey (Flanker)
  • ACSM04 - Light Grey (MiG-29)
  • ACSM05 - Blue-Grey (MiG-29)
  • ACSM06 - Grey (MiG-21/23/27, Su-17/25)
  • ACSM07 - MiG Cockpit Interior Turquoise
  • ACSM08 - MiG Radome Grey
  • ACSM09 - Light Brown (MiG-21/23/27, Su-17/25)
