1/72 scale Hawk Series 100 is available online from Squadron.com
Hawk is the newest aircraft to enter the RAAF’s inventory. Initially these
aircraft lacked squadron marking, which have now been applied. 76 squadron have
opted from their standard panther on a red flash. 79 Squadron on the other hand,
has not gone with the ‘skull’ markings from their Macchi’s, but to the ‘Phoenix’
flash from the mirage era, which is very attractive.
The decals come with four sheets. This includes a standard colour sheet with the
squadron markings, a white backing sheet to ensure that the coloured decals are
not translucent, black data sheet, and a grey data and insignia sheet. The
stencilling is very through and detailed.
The plans illustrate a double-sided page of coloured drawings and a list of
instruction for Hawkeye’s Decals, which should be read very carefully. These
decals are not like normal decals. They are not sealed, which will prevent
yellowing or cracking. The decals are not individual, and hence, have to be
individually cut out. This requires care, especially with smaller stencilling.
Special thanks need to be given to the members of 76 Sqn, who without, a set of
decals like this would not be available to model.
