  1. ZG479/69 was the first of the Harriers that were deployed to Ahmed Al Jaber in Op Telic (OIF) to have a sharkmouth applied, and as you say in this case a smaller red/white only one. The Harriers that had the fuller (red/black/white) sharkmouth during this deployment were ZD408/37 and ZG859/91.
  2. The one on the Italeri kit and Model alliance (The Aviation Workshop) decal sheet is from an aircraft that was on OP Warden in the 90s and was only for a photo shoot. The other sharkmouths are from aircraft on OP Telic (OIF) in 2003. The Italeri kit has the wrong Ser No, whilst the Model Alliance sheet is correct.
  3. The aircrafts Ser No was ZD408/WK and it was applied for a one off photo shoot during OP Warden. There is a line drawing in the Crowood book on the Harrier on page 156, a photo in World Air Power Issue No 22 on page 6. The Aviation Workshop (Now defunct) made a decal for the GR7 Harrier with this scheme on, it being MA-72102 in 1/72 or MA-48102 in 1/48. Hope that this is of some help.
  4. I would also get one, as I would have preferred this scale to the 48th one already ordered.
  5. Does Jordan operate Hawks?
  6. That was the RAF St Athan Station Flight and a decal sheet in the 3 major scales has been done by Euro Decals.
  7. They also did a sheet in 1/72.
  8. I am too hoping that an Iraqi aircraft can be built with this kit.
  9. The first Tomcats that I saw were at Greenham Common in 1976 from VF-142 and 143, so those markings would be fine. Some line aircraft from VF-32 in D storm would also be good rather than the flashy tail marked ones. How about aircraft from VF-124 and 101 as they were rather bright in their earlier days. But please nothing from VF-84.
  10. Does that include the Bi-centennial one?
  11. Got mine yesterday and very good they look too. One added bonus that I did not know is that one of the names on the nose U/C door is a former work colleague of mine.
  12. Have a good time in Prague, it is brill, but do not miss out on the model shops there.
  13. Ordered the sheet that I want last night, and again thanks.
  14. Could not agree more, to be honest I am fed up of seeing those skull and bones on the first issue of a new Tomcat by a model company.
  15. Thank you for the Pa ANG Hercs. Over 30 years I have had a update set for these aircraft and 24 years waiting for decals for these aircraft to come out. Just a little while longer to wait.
  16. I have seen it at the UK nationals and yes it is very good, but also pricey.
  17. It would be nice if you could include some of the Aussie F-18s from Op Falconer (Australia in OIF). A company in Australia did make a sheet many years ago but they disappeared rather quickly and there has been nothing since.
  18. Got mine today and all I can say is wow. Roll on the Mirage sheet.
  19. The aircraft would only have been repainted as they went through major servicing at RAF St Athan. There was a dedicated team set up for these aircraft and only one went through the system when I was based there (87-89). As a major took about 6 months to complete I don't think that many went through by the time that they were retired and replaced by the FGR2s.
  20. I have just finished my EA-6B using this set, and found the detail very good indeed, and it did fit well after a bit of fettling.
  21. Could not agree more. Could this sheet be made available in 1/72, because again the only option that I have seen for bomb bay nose art from desert Storm is "toxic Avenger" and there are lots more better ones than that.
  22. That is Thumrait in Southern Oman. The Jaguars in the background are Royal Air Forces ones before the detachment moved to Bahrain.
  23. Got my kit today, so I will look forward to this sheet coming out.
