This decal sheet is numbered 48034 and arrived from Iliad decals in a stout cardboard envelope. The subjects of this sheet are:
- Shenyang J-7 (MiG 21F-13). Legend reads “Long live Chairman Mao.”
- MiG 21F-13, Iraqi AF, 1966.
- Avia S-106 (MiG 21F-13), Syrian AF, 1973.
- MiG 21F-13, Albanian AF.
- MiG 21F-13, United Arab Republic AF, Six Day War, 1967.
- Avia S-106, Czech AF, 1964.
- MiG 21F-13, North Korean AF.
The set contains just the aircraft specific decals and you would use any stencils from the kit you’re using. You will be able to make all 7 aircraft though – if you have 7 kits available!
The contents of this set are:
- 1 double-sided colour sheet of instructions
- 1 21 cm x 14 cm decal sheet
The instructions are clear and simple and give all the extra details you’re going to need to get your build right. The port side views of each aircraft have details against each of them letting you know details about the camouflage scheme used and any idiosyncrasies of the individual aircraft. On the reverse side of the sheet are top views of the 7 aircraft showing camouflage schemes on the top and the colours used on the undersides. All the colours used on the aircraft are named.
The decal sheet, as you can see in the photographs and the video, are perfectly in register, well detailed and the colours look good too. The backing film is minimal to non-existent except in places where it is needed to line text up. Iliad has chosen a good set of colourful aircraft to build.
This set is available for $12.00 from Iliad Design’s site.
This is a very nice decal set with some attractive options for any 1/48 Mig-21F-13.
Many thanks to Iliad Design for the review sample.
