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 takes on a rather recent subject, the Sukhoi OKB's T-50 PAK-FA. While most of the airframe looks very similar to the F-22 Raptor, the engine installation and boat-tail look distinctly Su-27. The aircraft first flew in January 2010 and Begemot previously released a decal set for the Zvezda kit. This set is designed for the HobbyBoss kit and offers additional marking options for the PAK-FA airframes that have flown since Bort 51.
This set provides markings and profiles for:
- T-50, Bort 51, 2010 and 2012
- T-50, Bort 52, 2011
- T-50, Bort 53, 2011
- T-50, Bort 54, 2012
- T-50, Bort 55, 2013
- T-50, Bort 56, 2016
If you're looking for an interesting project and a unique subject for your shelf or contest table, this is the decal sheet to make that happen.
