    HTK-AS34 “Israeli Air Force paint set (early period)”

    In the early years of independence Israeli Air Force used a variety of camouflages – the first aircraft used a scheme of unspecified green and brown colours, later supplemented by standard RAF colours used on Spitfires and natural metal finish of Mustangs and Mosquitoes. Avia S-199 was the only type painted in Reed Green.

    In 1955 a new standard camouflage of Grey-Blue and Medium Brown over Silk Grey was introduced for use on all IAF aircraft except for so-called “leading fighters” that used overall aluminium (natural metal) finish instead.

    HTK-AS34 contains a careful selection of colours required for modeling of Israeli planes used from 1948 till 1967. The set contains:

    • HTK-A170 – Reed Green – RAL6013, overall colour of Avia S-199s (Czechoslovakian copy of Bf 109G with Junkers Jumo 211 F engine) - first fighters of IAF
    • HTK-A171 – Grey-Blue – RAL5008, used for upper surfaces in standard camouflage of IAF used from 1955 till 1967 on all types of aircraft (excl. leading fighters)
    • HTK-A172 – Medium Brown – FS30215, used for upper surfaces in standard camouflage of IAF used from 1955 till 1967 on all types of aircraft (excl. leading fighters)
    • HTK-A173 – Silk Grey – RAL7044, used for lower surfaces in standard camouflage of IAF used from 1955 till 1967 on all types of aircraft (excl. leading fighters)
    • HTK-A030 – European I Grey – FS36081, used for lower surfaces in camouflage scheme of IAFs Gloster Meteor NF-13s (with standard colours on upper surfaces)
