First Look

Begemot Decals is an interesting decal company from Rostov-on-Don, Russia that offers a nice array of markings for Soviet-built aircraft. In this release, Begemot releases a set of markings covering four Morane Saulnier Type N fighters in Russian Air Force service during World War I. Let's take a look at the subjects covered:

Morane Saulnier Type N Morane Saulnier Type N

  1. Morane Saulnier Type N, 742, 9 KAO, as flown by NCO GE Sulk
  2. Morane Saulnier Type N, 19 KAO, as flown by NCO IV Smirnov
  3. Morane Saulnier Type N, 19 KAO
  4. Morane Saulnier Type N, 11 KAO, as flown by Lt N Zavidonskiy

The only problem with this set is that you're going to need to stack two layers of decals in four positions on the airframe for the national markings.

My sincere thanks to Begemot Decals for this review sample!
