    Uzbek Su-27 in bad condition, 2004. Camouflage and markins on drawing is correct, beside that real aircraft is strongly scratched.


    Uzbek Su-27, 2008, Andijan air base. Shark's tail can be seen on different former Soviet aircrafts, now Uzbek or Russian (ex. 62nd IAP ?).


    Renewed Uzbek Su-27, 2008. Camouflage on drawing is partially (right side) hipothetical (colours and markings are OK).
