Yak-3 decals Yugoslav Air Force 1/72

072015  Jak-3 “white 03″                         rrp  4,80€  

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).

Recomended kit: Zvezda

 

Bf109G-2/R-6 decals 15./JG52 1/72

072014  Messerschmitt Bf109G-2/R-6 “black 11″                   rrp 4,80€

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

Recomended kit:  Fine Molds, AZ Model, Academy, Hasegawa

While the original rear doors, with larger windows, were camouflaged like the rest of the helicopter, the first pair of replacement doors was white, and later this MD-500D received doors in combination of red, yellow and brown glosssy colors.

H-305 was painted on the tail boom just before this occasion. This decal set shows this Hind as it was in 1997, near the end of its career in Croatian Air Force, although it is possible to backdate it to 1996 period if you make some modifications to camo scheme, or even earlier if you do not apply registration number (H-305).

If you use Zvezda’s kit, note that main rotor blades should be modified to represent the type used on Croatian Air Force Hinds.

 

072006   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 only a basic set of markings for this helicopter. Although maybe not for absolute beginners, it offers some challenge with its rather complex camo scheme. Review of this decal set can be found here.
Recommended kit: HobbyBoss Mi-8/Mi-17.

 

072005   Mi-8MTV-1 “H-251″                  rrp     4,80€

Croatian Air Force, Zagreb Airbase, Pleso, Croatia, 2006.

One of only two Croatian Mi-8MTV-1 that had unique special camo scheme during its service with 1.HGZ (1st Croatian Guard Corps).
Later, back in Croatian Air Force service, it was first used as it was, after that with new markings and finally it was repainted grey overall, making it interesting subject for, among others, beginner modelers as it is rather simple to paint. Also, there is no need to make any conversions of HobbyBoss kit since this Mi-8MTV-1 has no nose radome nor SARP housing (attached to Doppler housing under the tail boom).
Recommended kit: HobbyBoss Mi-8/Mi-17

072003   MiG-21bis “Avenger of Vukovar”                                    rrp  4,80€

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


072002   MiG-21bis  “101″                      rrp     4,80€

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 a canopy, on the left side only.
Recommended kit: Zvezda MiG-21bis or Fujimi MiG-21bis.
