First Look

Foxbot Decals is new (to me) decal company from Kiev, Ukraine, that specializes in replicating those interesting Ukrainian Air Force subjects currently in service. They also produce a nice array of Soviet WW2 subjects as well, though they will jump outside those boundaries to produce other interesting subjects. In this release, we have a nice selection of five La-5FNs in distinctive markings. Let's take a look:
