Coinciding with the release of LHD32001, Linden Hill Imports has released LHD32003 Stencil data for the new Trumpeter 1/32 SU-27 Flanker kit.

The sheet comes with one full size sheet and two partial sheets of stencils and Russian stars. The sheet is for use on mainly Soviet/Russian/CIS service as the stencil data is in all Cyrillic. The instructions note that most Flankers in foreign use other than Indiaís feature Cyrillic stenciling.

The instructions on this particular sheet are grey and black with very concise placement aided by arrows for each stencil. As with all aircraft it is always good to check your references for the particular aircraft you are modeling to check exact placement of stencils and markings.

One item of note on this sheet is the inclusion of six faded red stars along with six bright red Russian stars .

Another nice touch is the inclusion of stencil data for a two seat Flanker. Maybe the guys ant Linden Hill know something that we donít huh?

The decals themselves are in good register with limited carrier film. What carrier film is there is very thin so little trimming should be necessary if you have a good gloss base coat down.

I am quite impressed with this sheet and am looking forward to adding the stencils to my big Flanker.

 

 

The only real drawback is that you have to buy this set along with LHD32001 as it does not have any stencils on it.
