Yak-3 decals 1/48 Yugoslav Air Force

048011  Jak-3 “white 03″                         rrp 5,60€  

Yugoslav Air Force, Pula, Croatia, mid fifties of 20th century

There is little information about this Jak-3 of the Yugoslav Air Force, mainly from the photograph taken in the mid fifties of the last century near Pula (Croatia) which you can find in the instructions. The plane was painted and marked in the standard of the Yugoslav fighters of the time, except that there are, for unknown reason, different shades of blue in roundel and the flag on the rudder. There is a patch on vertical stabilizer of unknown shade of grey paint, while the spinner was most likely painted red (although blue or black are also possible).

Bf109G-2/R-6 decals 15./JG52 1:48

048010   Messerschmitt Bf109G-2/R-6 “black 11″                    rrp 5,60€

15.(Kroat.)/JG52, Eastern front 1942.

This aircraft, flown by Croatian ace major Vladimir Ferenčina (11 victories), was possibly made as Bf109G-2/trop, according to tropical filter attachment points on the engine cowling. Note also that digits of number “11″ are not of the same shape and size, thus leading to posibillity that they were painted in different times. There were also remains of original factory codes on the fuselage

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). The airplane retained original stencils (available separately soon).

048001   MiG-21bis   “101″                    rrp     5,60€

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. The airplane retained original stencils (available separately soon).
Note that the airplane had RSBN aerials, a rounded side windshield and a small bubble behind the canopy, on the left side only.
Recommended kit: Eduard MiG-21bis.
