  13. Xtradecal Sheet No 72-066 Harrier Gr9 41 ( R ) Sqn

    Hi Chris Thank you for the reply sorry I forgot to say the red should be I think cherry red BS381C.538. Kind Regards Craig
  14. Hi There I am at present building a RAF Harrier Gr9 in 1/72 and it was to be a 41 ( R ) sqn machine ZG508 but the decals of the Xtradecal sheet No 72-066 for this aircraft are the wrong colour in fact the red for all the 41( R ) Sqn are very far to dark.I was wondering if anyone else had this sheet and had the same problem or was it altered by Xtradecal. Might be that I have to get another sheet that is right. Kind Regards Craig
