Needed - 1:72 Saaf Decals
« on: January 03, 2008, 02:14:46 am »
Anybody have any they can let me have ?? - need six blue/gold, not the outline style 'stars' and a pair of fin flashes if possible (not too worried bout the fin flashes, as I can do a later one).

Thanks in advance.

Just to be clear:

You don't want this one:

But rather this one (roundel used from 1957 to 1994, in association with a fin flash):

Or this one (roundel used from 1994 to 2003. The traditional South-African springbok is replaced by an eagle, the SAAF emblem):

If so I might have some stashed, but I need to be sure what I'd be looking for  :blink: .

Thanks guys

Amphion - yep the 1957-94 type, Kitnut, they would be to large for what I have in mind, Mirage III/F1 size would be great.

Found them, they're from a Matchbox Mirage IIIC sheet.

The blue is not as deep as in the picture above, more medium-ish, but there are six of them, plus the french stuff.

As for fin flashes there are two big'uns in the colours for FAF and SAAF that I think is meant to cover the rudder and have text on them, "Avions Dassault Mirage IIIC N 56" and "Avions Dassault Mirage IIIC N 800" respectively.

Anyhow, if the cap'n don't sort you out......drop me a line.
