323 Sqn 60th Anniversary
"Diana" Summer & Winter schemes
2008 - 2009
These special tails for 323 Sqn, which has Diana "Godness
of the Hunt" as squadron emblem, of the Royal Netherlands
Air Force based at Leeuwarden in the north of Holland, were especially
designed for the 60th anniversary in 2008-2009. The Summer tail
with the Diana in bikini was going to applied for the air show
season of 2008, starting with the big airshow at Leeuwarden AFB
in June 2008.
This scheme was approved by several levels in the Dutch AF (a
6 month process) until only ONE week before the air show one general
'on the top' said "nyet" to the whole project.
The Winter scheme, designed for the actual 60th anniversary date
in November 2008, was freezed also.
On popular demand, these tails are now released as a decal, in
their original - uncensored - version.
As bonus this decal sheet contains also the Diana painted on the
tail for the airshow in 2001 at Leeuwarden.
The decals are available in three scales: 1/144, 1/72
There's one full colour instruction sheet and a full
set of reinforcement plates included in this set.
* The 1/144th scale version has only the markings of
J-248 and a reduced amount of stencilling
