Linden Hill Decals, as a brand of Linden Hill Imports are well established as the premier source of well researched decals for Eastern European Air Forces in the post-Soviet era. Having already produced many Su-27 sheets in 1/72 and 1/48 scale as well as the outstanding Flankers on Patrol sets in 1/32 Linden Hill Decals are back with two new sheets perfect for the Trumpeter Su-27 Flanker B and Su-27UB Flanker C kits that have been available since 2005 and 2008 respectively.

Subjects covered in LHD 32006 include:

  • 2 x Su-27UB Flanker Cs of the 641st GvIAP;

  • 1 x Su-27UB and 1 x Su-30  of the 54th Kerchensky GvIAP;

  • 1 x Su-27UB of the 60th IAP

  • 1 x Su-27UB of the 941st IAP

  • 2 x Su-27UB of the 604th Air Base, Air Defense Forces of Kazakhstan in original Russian camouflage colours

  • 1 x Su-27 and 1 x Su-27UB of 604th Air Base, Kazakhstan in a new scheme unique to the Air Defense Forces of Kazakhstan

 

 

All subjects have some element of nose/tail art or otherwise unique attributes (such as the Kazakh schemes) which will produce a strikingly different model with the Trumpeter kits.

 

 

Subjects covered in LHD32007 of course are all Ukrainian and include:

  • Su-27UB Red/Yellow 39 and Su-27 Red 57 in their original Soviet camouflage scheme; and

  • Su-27s Blue 36, Blue 08 and Blue 56 as well as Su-27UBs Blue 69 and Blue 74 in the well known splinter scheme applied to Ukrainian Flankers.

As with LHD32006, all schemes are well documented and include some with unique artwork applied.

Linden Hill Decals has a reputation for backing up their product with detailed instructions including colour notes, modifications and reference photos of the subjects. These two sheets are no exception with instructions spread over 6-8 A4 full colour pages there is little more for the modeler to do but build a kit and apply this gorgeous markings.

Given Linden Hills well established reputation there is little else to say. I have personally used a number of these sheets and they have performed flawlessly.

Now you have no excuse not to break out the recent Trumpeter kits and produce an extraordinary and accurate replica.
