1/72 Rhodesian AF Weapons
« on: July 29, 2020, 09:13:51 pm »
So, I need 1 set of Rhodesian 1970-1980 Roundels and full decal set for a project (not the Aero L-39, lol). I have a 1/100 SAAB AJ-37 Viggen that I want to use them for.

Mav decals do a fair few Rhodesian subjects.

his site is here. I've bought from him before and had no issues.


I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Xtradecal do a sheet for export Hunters that has Rhodesian markings on it, as well as lots of other nice goodies.

I appreciate everyone looking out and finding products for me, but I was hoping to save money and get leftovers from someone's sheet, lol!

I've had a good look in my decal folder and all I can offer you is the older Royal Rhodesian AF Assegai version, and that is part of an ESCI sheet of roughly the same age!
Sorry I couldn't help more.

Nick, I'll definitely take those off your hands, anyway. I could always use more, if you're offering, that is

Xtradecal do a sheet for export Hunters that has Rhodesian markings on it, as well as lots of other nice goodies.

They also do a venom trainer sheet that comes with the green lion roundels for a Green/Earth aircraft. For that era you'd only need a single pair of roundels for the fuselage and the green fin flashes, since markings were minimal.

Reminds me that I have a Rhodesian Gnat single seater from that era on my agenda, too.  :rolleyes:

Yup, you're correct, Thomas, though your single seat Gnat could use the pre-1970 style roundels. I'd love to see a Gnat in Rhodesian colors.
