An-2 decals

044004   An-2 “Gremlini”                          rrp  4,80€

Although a common airplane in the Croatian Air Force inventory during early and mid nineties of the last century, it flies no more. This particulary example, baptised “Gremlini” (“Gremlins”), was given a camouflage scheme similar to the camo scheme on Croatian Air Force Mi-8MTV-1 helicopters of the same period, and was the only example of this type which received the “standard” Croatian Air Force markings.

Recommended kit: A-model An-2.

 

 

044004   Mi-8MTV-1 “H-212″                   rrp  4,80€

Croatian Air Force, Lučko Airbase, Zagreb, Croatia, 1999.

Helicopters Mi-8MTV-1 were “working horses” of the Croatian Air Force, used during the war to transport troops, equipment and wounded, and after the war for medical flights, fire fighting and other tasks.
This decal set provides a basic set of markings for this helicopter. Although maybe not for absolute beginners, it offers some challenge with its rather complex camo scheme.


Recommended kit: Eastern Express Mi-8MT/Mi-17.

Croatian Air Force, Divulje Airbase, Split, Croatia, 1999.

Helicopters Mi-8MTV-1 were “working horses” of the Croatian Air Force, used during the war to transport troops, equipment and wounded, and after the war for medical flights, fire fighting and other tasks.

044002    MiG-21bis                                     rrp  5,60€

As in set 044001 and again unusually for Ze-Ro Decals, this set contains decals for two airplanes. Since Eduard packs parts for two models in its box of MiG-21bis in 1:144, we decided to put decals for two Croatian Air Force MiGs, specifically the “106″ and “Avenger of Vukovar”.

“106” 21st FS, Croatian Air Force, Joint exercise (Croatian Air Force & US Air Force), Pula, Croatia, May 2002.

MiG-21bis „106“ joined Croatian Air Force during nineties of the last century, and participated in operations for liberation of occupied parts of Croatia during Croatian war for independence, including Operation Storm. It also participated in joint exercises with US Navy and with US Air Force. You can find some photos from this exercises in the “Croatian soldier” gallery here and here.
These decals show the airplane as it appeared during joint exercise with US Air Force during May 2002 in Pula, Croatia.
Note that the airplane had a squared side windshield, an AFK housing in front of the cockpit and a small bubble behind a canopy, on the left side only.

“103″ “Avenger of Vukovar”, 1st  FS, Croatian Air Force, Zagreb Airbase, Pleso, Croatia, 1993.

Built in Soviet Union in early eighties of the last century, the airplane received Yugoslav AF number 17167. Pilot Capt Ivica Ivandić flew over in this airplane from 124th Fighter Aviation Regiment of former JRV i PVO (Yugoslav Air Force) into free area of Croatia on May 15th, 1992. The airplane enters HRZ (Croatian Air Force) under number 103. In January 1993 it received title “Osvetnik Vukovara” (Avenger of Vukovar) in the memory of Croatian city that suffered heavily to Serbian aggression. Lost in combat on September 14th, 1993, its pilot, Capt Miroslav Peris KIA.
Old yugoslav markings were overpainted with original gray paint. Those places were visible because the original airplane paint already faded, so there was some difference in colour  tone. Original yugoslav squadron number “167” remained on the right wing upper surface, but the numbers on left wing and fuselage were overpainted, along with number 17167 on the tail. Note that 1st Fighter Squadron badges on the fuselage (received later) were painted  asymmetrically  (lower on the right side).
Note that the airplane had RSBN aerials, a rounded side windshield and a small bubble behind canopy, on the left side only.

Recomended kit: Eduard MiG-21bis Dual Combo (Cat. No. 4427).


 

044001   MiG-21bis                                     rrp  5,60€

Unusually for Ze-Ro Decals, this set contains decals for two airplanes. Since Eduard packs parts for two models in its box of MiG-21bis in 1:144 scale, we decided to put in this set decals for two Croatian Air Force MiGs, specifically the “101″ and “120″.

“101″ 1st FS, Croatian Air Force, Zagreb Airbase, Pleso, Croatia, February 1992.

„101“ (ex 133/17133) was the very first jet fighter in Croatian Air Force inventory. It was acquired when Capt (later Col) Danijel Borović flew it over from former JRV i PVO (Yugoslav Air Force) to newly formed HRZ (Croatian Air Force). Capt Borović took of in this airplane on February 4th, 1992 from Bihać, and landed that night in Pula Air Base, while the airstrip was illuminated by truck lights only. „101“ was lost on June 26th, 1992, its pilot Col Antun Radoš KIA.
Due to intensive activities during Homeland war, airplane received markings through several phases, this decal set featuring one of them. Old Yugoslav markings were overpainted with original gray paint. Those places were not so visible because the airplane was recently overhauled in Air depot „Zmaj“ in Velika Gorica near Zagreb (today ZTC), so airplane paint did not fade yet. Numbers were painted, main markings (Croatian coat of arms) were painted, but unfinished. Base of the Croatian flag on the tail was painted too, but the coat of arms on the flag was, in fact, a modified sticker of Croatian Army, smaller than it should be. The sticker fell off during next flight, leaving the tail flag uncompleted. Optionally, you can use „sticker“ decal no. 4. The airplane, marked as described, flew only few days, markings were completed later.
Note that the airplane had RSBN aerials, a rounded side windshield and a small bubble behind a canopy, on the left side only.

“120″ 22nd FS, Croatian Air Force, Joint exercise „Safe Sky“ (Croatian Air Force & US Navy), Pula, Croatia, November 2000.

MiG-21bis „120“ joined Croatian Air Force during nineties of the last century, and participated in operations for liberation of occupied parts of Croatia during Croatian war for independence, including Operation Storm. Being one of only two Croatian Air Force MiG-21bis adorned with 22nd FS badges on the nose, it received its badges after the war. It also participated in joint exercises with US Navy and with US Air Force. Later, it was overhauled and upgraded in Romania to bisD standard. The airplane was lost after accident in september 2010.
These decals show the airplane as it appeared during joint exercise with US Navy during November 2000 in Pula, Croatia.
Note that the airplane had a rounded side windshield, and a small bubble behind the canopy on the left side only, for added avionics. The AFK housing in front of the cockpit was removed (or not installed) with visible patch in place.

Recomended kit: Eduard MiG-21bis Dual Combo (Cat. No. 4427)
