So I am jumping into the "Tin Can Sailors" campaign with both feet, and I plan to build the Pit-Road 1/700 Sovremenny-class destroyer. I have managed to find the White Ensign Models makes a P/E set for the kit; however, I have an issue with the decals. From what I can tell, the decals in the box are not from the kit, and are incorrect (wrong hull numbers, no markings for the Ka-27 helicopter even though the instructions say they are to be there). Does anyone know where I can find a decent set of decals for this kit?

Thanks,
Jim

That might work. Still need to track down decals for the Ka-23 & flags.

I did find these at Free Time Hobbies:

I've never purchased anything from Free Time Hobbies, but I have heard good things about them. I have purchased from Hobbylinc and Model Roundup. I've heard good things about Scale Hobbyist as well.
