HAWKEYE MODELS AUSTRALIA RAN-12A
RAN A-4 SKYHAWK DECALS
Decals for VC-724 Squadron 1970's
Previously Hawkeye Models Australia had released a set of 1/48 decals covering
a large range of Skyhawks used by the RAN, these included both double and
single seaters. A problem with the set was that although you received a
large number of decals for virtualy every Skyhawk used by the RAN
you only received enough white backing for the markings of one aircraft. Clayton
Fiander the owner of Hawkeye decided to fix this problem by cutting the
set into peices and issueing the markings seperately.
The decals are supplied in a ziplock bag containing the double sided
instruction sheet and two sheets of markings, the white backing sheet
and the coloured markings on a separate sheet. The markings in this set
only cover N-13 154904 (tail number 883), a Skyhawk of VC-724 SQN during
the 1970's in Gloss Gull Grey and Gloss white scheme.
The decals on the coloured sheet cover are printed on continuous carrier
film in the usual manner of HMA. The majority of the coloured markings
are provided with a white backing for the writing and other white areas
on the marking.
The instruction sheet as can be seen from the image above is a coloured
sheet that provides sufficient advice on the positioning of the decals
provided. The rear of the sheet gives application information for those
that have not used Hawkeye decals previously.
These decals are available direct from Clayton Fiander at Hawkeye
Models Australia in 1/72,
1/48 and 1/32.
