Authentic Decals is a nicely produced line from Olimp Models from Odessa, Ukraine. These markings are primarily oriented around contemporary Soviet-era and current Russian/Ukrainian subjects, just the ones I like!
This set provides markings for eleven very colorful examples:
- Su-25, Blue 17, Ukrainian AF, Saki AB, 2001
- Su-25, Red 16, Russian AF, Olenegorsk AB, 1998
- Su-25, White 07, Russian AF, Borisoglesbsk AB, 2004
- Su-25, Red 24, Russian AF, Primorsko-Akhtarsk AB, 1999
- Su-25, Green 02, Russian AF, Galyonky AB, 2001
- Su-25, Green 22, Russian AF, Galyonky AB, 2003
- Su-25, Red 25, Ukrainian AF, Saki AB, 1992
- Su-25, Red 26, Soviet AF, Demin AB, 1991
- Su-25, White 09, Russian AF, Buturlinovka AB, 2004
- Su-25, Red 47, Russian AF, Chenigovka AB, 2004
- Su-25, Red 26, Belarusian AF, Kobrin AB, 1999
The printing is is nicely done and the markings are finely printed and in register. The set also includes an extensive set of maintenance stencils, so your Su-25 will pop with lots of visual detail when completed.
My sincere thanks to Olimp Models for this review sample!
