First Look

Begemot Decals is an interesting decal company from Rostov-on-Don, Russia that offers a nice array of markings for Soviet-built and Russian service aircraft. In this release, Begemot provides an extensive set of decals for the recently released Hasegawa 1/72 Su-35S Flanker E kit. Let's take a look:

This set provides profiles for 13 examples including the various digital Flanker schemes. The instructions provide four-view diagrams of these paint schemes as well as placement instructions for the distinctive markings. The decals are rendered on two sheets and provide generic markings given that the aircraft is not yet in widespread service. Bort numbers are provided in white, red and blue with an extensive set of airframe stencils enough for one aircraft. Markings are also provided two of the flight demonstration airframes as well. In addition, the second sheet provides an extensive set of stencils for the wide range of weapons as well as the underwing pylons.

If you want some breathtaking details and distinctive colors on your Super Flanker, you'll want to find a set of these decals. For more information about this set and the other releases from Begemot Decals, visit their website at

My sincere thanks to Begemot Decals for this review sample!
