New Hawker Hunter F.6/FGA.9/FR.10 "Desert birds of prey" decals in 1/72 and 1/48

Recommended Posts

Looks like re-release of Revell's Hawker Hunter brings more decals to market, tis time from company HI-Decal line.

 

From Hannats:

Hi Decal HD72059

Hawker Hunter F.6/FGA.9/FR.10 "Desert birds of prey" with markings for:
2 x Iraq - including a double Vautour killer
2 x Jordan - two Mirage killers
2 x Oman in two different grey schemes
2 x Somalia

2 x Chile in desert and blue grey schemes

And same in 1/48 scale - HD48029

 


Just in case if Xtradecals have not enough foreign schemes.

 

----------------------------------

update:

 

Hi Folks,

Just to make the things a bit more precise, the upcoming sheets will include markings for the following Hunters:

F.6 - Iraq ('60),

FGA.9 - Iraq - double Vautour killer ('67),

F.6 - Jordan - Mirage killer ('66),

F.6 with recce nose - Jordan - double Mirage killer ('67),

FGA.9 - Oman with dark grey uppersurface camo ('79),

FR.10 - Oman with dark grey/grey camo and mission markings from Dhofar conflict ('79), 

FGA.9 - Somalia (with FR.10 option) ('83), 

FGA.9 - Chile in desert scheme ('75),

FGA.9 - Chile in Ghost grey camo ('75),

Most of these schemes were never covered previously in decal form, or, if covered, then -unfortunately- with many errors. We have also concentrated on schemes not covered by Xtradecals in their "Hunters in international service" sheets.

 

Greetings

Diego

Before anybody asks they'll be following in 1/48 as well :D but only 6 options :(

 

 

Heh, I got tunnel vision after seeing a 1/72 scale sheet, I will update first post about. Anyway, doesn't (6) refers to number of countries? On Hannats it's 6 x 2 = 12 schemes on both sheets.

Good spot Botan. I've amended my post.

 

 

I have noticed something strange.

In fact Hannats list 5 x 2 schemes so 10, but HI-Decals on their site put such description :

Quote

(6) Iraq, Jordan, Oman, Somalia, Chile

 

Which means 6 schemas in total for 5 countries, so only one get two schemes.

As far as I'm aware Xtradecal don't do ANY foreign Hunters, at least not in 1/48, so this set will be very welcome indeed instead of the boring ones in the forthcoming Airfix kit.

Lets hope that XtraDecal will cover all foreing Hawker Hunters at 1/48 just like X72214.

 

All foreing Hawker Hunters have already been available on 1/48 decal sheets (but not Qatar) but these decal sheets are no longer available for decades.

 

Belgium Hunters are already well covered by Daco Decals, I bet that Netherland KLU Hunters will be covered by Dutch Decals and Switzerland Hunters will be covered by Matterhotn Circle.

FGA.9 - Iraq - double Vautour killer, with kill markings ('67),

F.6 - Jordan - Mirage killer, with kill marking ('66),

F.6 with recce nose - Jordan - double Mirage killer ('67),

FGA.9 - Oman with dark grey uppersurface camo ('79),

FR.10 - Oman with dark grey/grey camo and mission markings from Dhofar conflict ('79),

Thank you for these informations Diego.

 

For your future projects for Hunters Decals at 1/48 scale, be informed that I do not remember that Hawker Hunters from Qatar and Kenya have been covered in decal form in the past. The same situation apply with Hawker Hunters of Rhodesia with the Green/White/Lion Roundel and of Zimbabwe with the Gold/Black fin national marking. Rhodesian Hunters with the Blue/White/Red/Lance roundel have been covered in the past but should certainly be welcome back for the future.

If you are thinking of a further expost Hunters sheet may I suggest the Peruvian Air Force as a potential option Diego? The full tail flag and nose markings found on the display team birds makes for a colourful machine.
