After a quiet 2018 we're hoping to be a little more active with new releases this year. First up should be a new decal sheet in 1/48 and 1/72 scales. 'Post-Soviet Air Forces Update' will feature some very rare Tajik Air Force aircraft plus some interesting updates on post-Soviet Air Forces we've already covered earlier in the series (Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine). Aircraft to be covered include L-29, L-39, Mi-8, Mi-24, MiG-25RBF + RBT, MiG-29UB.
Here's one of the subjects below. This is the Eduard L-29 kit carrying some test decals before we go to print. All paints used were AKAN. No release date is set as yet.
Red 60 was one of a four-ship demonstration team of L-29s formed shortly after Ukrainian independence. They were some of the very first Ukrainian military aircraft displayed in public with national Ukrainian colors. The shots below were taken at the Gostomel Airport show in August 1993 (Photos by Sergey Popsuevich via Linden Hill Ltd.).
