Advantages: Latest squadron marking of the RAAF’s newest aircraft. Decals would look great on the Italeri 1/72 Hawk 100

The 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.
