First Look

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!

MiG-29 MiG-29

This set provides markings for ten very colorful examples:

  • MiG-29, White 36, Soviet AF, Wittstock AB, East Germany, 1990
  • MiG-29, Yellow 07, Soviet AF, Altenburg AB, East Germany, 1990
  • MiG-29, Red 72, Ukrainian AF, Vasylkov AB, 2001
  • MiG-29, Red 32, Russian AF, Primorsko-Akhtarsk AB, 1999
  • MiG-29, White 01, Russian AF, Domna AB, 1999
  • MiG-29, White 40, Russian AF, Domna AB, 1999
  • MiG-29, Red 08, Russian AF, Mary AB, 1990
  • MiG-29, Blue 26, Ukrainian AF, Starokonstantinov AB, 1993
  • MiG-29, Yellow 09, Ukrainian AF, Saky AB, 1993
  • MiG-29, White 49, Ukrainian AF, Mukachevo AB, 1993

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 Fighting Fulcrum will pop with lots of visual detail when completed.

My sincere thanks to Olimp Models for this review sample!
