First Look

Here is the first decal release from Lima, Peru-based Antarki Decals. In this set we have ten nice subjects for the MiG-29S/SE/SMP/BM variants of the Fulcrum family just in time for the recent Great Wall Hobbies 1/48 MiG-29 9-13 Fulcrum kit. Take a look at this:


The ten subjects include:

  • MiG-29S, 045, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP). 1997
  • MiG-29S, 055, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP). 1998
  • MiG-29SM, Bort 05, 61 IAP, Belarus AF, 2006
  • MiG-29BM, Bort 07, Russian AF, MAKS-2005
  • MiG-29S, FC-93, 3rd ADW, Algerian AF, 1999
  • MiG-29S, Bort 35, 642 IAP, Ukrainian AF
  • MiG-29S, 034, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP)
  • MiG-29S, 038, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP)
  • MiG-29S, 041, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP)
  • MiG-29S, 043, Grupo Aereo No.6, Fuerza Aerea del Peru (FAP)

The set comes on one sheet which provide all of the national and distinctive markings as well as a nice set of airframe maintenance stencils. In addition to decal placement, the instructions provide color guides using equivalent FS 595 and/or Testors Model Master paint numbers.

At last! These are the first modern 9-13 decals I've seen for the Great Wall kit and provide some excellent color options. This release follows their 1/72 scale version of this set with some interesting updates. For more information about this set and the other releases from Antarki Decals, visit their Facebook Page.

My sincere thanks to Antarki Decals for this review sample!
