Alright you fans of Soviet & Russian military aviation, Linden Hill has released another nice set of markings, this time for Trumpeter's 1/32 Su-27UB (two seat) Flanker kit.
This set has markings for ten different aircraft, including one single-seat Su-27, and the full-color instructions show you the paint scheme as well as clear placement of the various markings on the airframe. As you can see in the images below, the markings are covered on four sheets of decals and eight pages of instructions.
The ten subjects rendered in this set include:
- Su-27UB, Blue 53, 3 AE/641 GIAP, Afrikanda AB, Kola Peninsula, Russian Federation, 1992
- Su-27UB, Blue 55, 2 AE/641 GIAP, Afrikanda AB, Kola Peninsula, Russian Federation, 1992
- Su-27UB, Blue 43, 54 GIAP, Savaslyeika AB, Moskva MD, Russian Federation, 1998
- Su-30, Blue 53, 54 GIAP, Savaslyeika AB, Moskva MD, Russian Federation, 1998

Linden Hill has produced another nice set of markings and really provide some excellent subjects from both the Russian Federation and Kazakhstani Air Forces. If you have the Trumpeter two-seat Flanker or are thinking about it, this decal set will definitely give you some great alternatives so your aircraft won't look 'out of the box'.
