I'd like to see Huckebein's Fishbed, but that's a difficult scheme. Ustio's and Osean's 21s are pretty straight forward. Where are you gonna source the decals? Ebay?

I don't know, but I'd love to see it! 


The Ace Combat Draken model kit comes with a sheet that has a ton of extra decals for other nations and what not, and one such is for Ustio. The Ustio ones are rather small, however. I used them on a Mustang:

 

Of course, price and availability factor in, but time is money and it may be worth it to buy the kit to save countless hours of trying to find or make something else suitable. If it helps, I can try to dig out the kit later and take a picture of the sheet. It also has marking for Belka. In fact, it has a LOT of stuff for Belka...

The kit:



The Transfers:




Tons of possibilities here. I did some quick math once and I think I came up with a way to make 5-6 aircraft from this single sheet, depending on how you do it. The kit may be a bit pricey but it's worth every damn penny to avoid blowing hours and hours scouring the Earth for something else or having some sub-standard stuff printed, etc.

Cool :mellow: :mellow: :mellow: :mellow: thanks for Posting. FYI, Espada means "Sword" in Spanish. I was Inspired by Ace Combat 5 & Ace Combat Zero but, I'm Gonna Create my Own Fictional Air Force instead of Recreating Osean or Otherwise. Dan

Your not kidding, that sheet is fantastic! What plane is the Belkan markings with the sharkmouth for? A different Draken?
