Foxbot Decals is a 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 four MiG-25RBs designed for the ICM kit. Let's take a look:
The subjects in this set include:
- MiG-25RB, Bort 74, 48 OGRAP, Ukrainian AF, Kolomiya AB, 1995
- MiG-25RB, Bort 17, now on display at the Vinnitsa air museum
- MiG-25RB, Bort 19, 48 OGRAP, Ukrainian AF, Kolomiya AB, 1995
- MiG-25RB, Bort 73, 48 OGRAP, Ukrainian AF, Zaporoshye AB, early 2000s
This set is produced on one sheet of decals that provide the national markings as well as distinctive subject markings. The instructions are nicely done with clear placement of the markings. Whether you have the ICM or the Hasegawa reboxing of this kit, these decals will provide some interesting subjects for your scale flightline.
