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 WW2 subjects as well, and here's their latest release covering the B-25C/D Mitchell with nice nose art. Let's take a look:

This set is produced on two sheets of decals that provide the national markings as well as distinctive subject markings on one sheet, while a complete set of airframe stencils are on the other. The instructions are nicely done with clear placement of the markings. You can also purchase this set without the airframe stencils as well. This set is ideal for the Accurate Miniatures kit which also appears in Italeri and Academy boxings and will provide some interesting subjects for your scale flightline.

This release is available with free shipping from HobbyZone USA.

My sincere thanks to HobbyZone USA for this sample!
