First Look

Alright you fans of 1/32 scale aviation, here are some interesting subjects that represent a cross-section of the former Iraqi Air Force. These examples start with the Hawker Hunters of the 1950s through the MiG-29s of the early 1990s.

This set has markings for eleven different aircraft which will provide interesting alternative markings for the Revell 1/32 Hunter, Trumpeter 1/32 MiG-17F, Trumpeter MiG-19S, Trumpeter or Revell 1/32 MiG-21MF, and Revell 1/32 MiG-29 kits.

The eleven subjects rendered in this set include:

  • Hunter F.6, 339, Iraqi AF, 1956
  • Hunter F.6, 403, Iraqi AF, 1960
  • Hunter F.59A, 570, Iraqi AF, 1967
  • MiG-17F, 441, Iraqi AF, 1960
  • MiG-17F, 452, Iraqi AF, 1962
  • MiG-17F, 453, Iraqi AF, 1973
  • MiG-19S, 500, Iraqi AF, early 1960s
  • MiG-21MF, 1019, Iraqi AF, early 1980s
  • MiG-21bis, 2178, Iraqi AF, early 1980s
  • MiG-21bis, 4086, Iraqi AF,early 1980s
  • MiG-29, 29040, Iraqi AF, 1991

This decal set is nicely done decal-wise, but you're on your own to replicate the camouflage schemes presented in this set as only the left-side color profiles are included in these instructions. Linden Hill mentions in the instructions that they have a book entitled 'Iraqi Fighters' that covers these subjects and many more, and perhaps that title has complete profiles.
