PRICE: $19.40 from Design & Marketing Int'l
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Dry Transfer markings, also available in 1/72 and 1/48


From Contact-Resine comes this super sheet for the upcoming Azur 1/32 Hawk 75. These are dry transfer decals produced for Contact Resine by Hobby Decal. If you have seen the quality of Hobby Decal products, then you know that these are among the finest decals on the market. No worries about silvering with these. Though the application method is a bit different from what you are used to with water slide decals, the results are worth it.  As with all these markings, the rudder tricolor needs to be painted.

#1 is from GC 1/4 in July 1939. Hawks were painted in a random scheme and no two aircraft were alike.

#2 is from GC 1/5 in May 1940 during the German invasion.

#3 is an overall unpainted metal scheme from GC 1/5 during the summer of 1939

#4 is from GC II/3 during February 1940. As a note, it would be nice to have some sort of upper wing diagram with these, even if they are provisional.

#5 is From GC 2/62 in Morocco during early 1943 after the Allied landings in North Africa. As a result, it carries the yellow surround fuselage insignia.

Finally, #6 is from GC II/5 at Casablanca in 1942. This aircraft wears full late Vichy stripes on the cowling and tail section.

A really great selection of markings and some decals that you should seriously consider for the Azur P-36. These are also available in 1/72 and 1/48 scale.
