Bell P-39Q/N Airacobra 'Soviet Guard Regiments' Due to its unorthodox design that featured engine located behind the pilot's cockpit, P-39 Airacobra was not US pilots' dream fighter. Nevertheless, Soviet pilots really liked to fly Airacobras. From all the aircraft delivered to Soviet Union as part of Lend-Lease, P-39s accounted a large percentage. During the low level fights on Eastern Front Airacobras were highly dangerous to its opponents. Guard Regiments with many aces including the best ones as Pokrykin or Glinka were preferably equipped with Airacobras. We haven't released the kit of the late versions N and Q, yet. Decals included (three sheets!!!) in this kit offer marking for three machines flown by Soviet aces. These are P-39N ''Krasnoyarsky Komsomolets'' flown by Colonel Sobolev that featured dedication on both sides of fuselage, P-39Q-5 ''Yellow 93'' flown by Captain Filatov that sported playing cards
paintings and victory markings and the last is P-39N ''White 01'' . This machines was originally flown by Captain I.I. Babak. When he was shot down while flying in another machine, his mount was assigned to G.U. Dolnikov who decorated this machine with expressed revenge stencils for fallen friends (left on the fuselage "For Vanya Babak', on right "For Petya Tucek")
