Question on placard decals on Hawker Hunter

Recommended Posts

I'm making a Jordanian AF Hawker Hunter F6 (circa 1966) using the Academy 1/48. Is it appropriate to put the English language placard decals on this aircraft? Or were the placards on these aircraft in Arabic?

English,as the were ex-RAF & RSAF jets in use as most of the original batch of Hunters were destroyed in the first few hours of the Six Day War,Not to mention a lot of the aircrew & groundcrew were trained in the UK by the RAF.I remember the Jordanian groundcrew being trained on aircraft weapons at RAF Cosford in the early 80's when I was there.
