First Look

Begemot Decals is an interesting decal company from Rostov-on-Don, Russia that offers a nice array of markings for Russian-built aircraft. In this release, Begemot covers the Mi-24P Hind F version of the aircraft, distinctive with its twin-barrel 23mm GSh-23 cannon mounted to the starboard side of the nose. This set is just in time for the recent Zvezda kit.
