HTK-CS63 USMC AV-8 paint set (early schemes)

description

ORANGE LINE – LAQUER BASED PAINTS

Standard colours of Harrier fleet in USMC service from 1970s till 1990s.

AV-8As entered service with USMC in 1971 wearing Dark Green / Gunship Grey over Light Gull Grey pattern. In early 1980s, parallel to introduction of AV-8Bs (and modification of A variant to C standard), new colours were introduced – Extra Dark Green and Dark Blue-Grey (firstly on upper surfaces, later in wrap-around scheme). During the Operation Desert Storm the „Land Camo” was regarded as ineffective in desert conditions and field-repainting of AV-8Bs was ordered (mostly with paints available in neighbouring units) – either by covering only the dark green patches of camo or by repainting of overall aircraft.

Contains the following colours (lacquer based paints, optimised for use with airbrush):

  • HTK-C016 – Dark Green – FS34079, used for upper surfaces in initial camouflage of USMC AV-8As from start of their service in 1971 till late-1970s
  • HTK-C031 – Gunship Grey – FS36118, used for upper surfaces in initial camouflage of USMC AV-8As from start of their service in 1971 till late-1970s
  • HTK-C048 – Light Gull Grey – FS36440, used for lower surfaces of AV-8As. Later used on AV-8B/Cs in „Land Camo Scheme” (1980s-90s)
  • HTK-C232 – Extra Dark Green – FS34064, briefly used for upper surfaces of AV-8As. Later used on AV-8B/Cs in „Land Camo Scheme” (1980s-90s)
  • HTK-C235 – Dark Blue-Grey – FS36099, briefly used for upper surfaces of AV-8As. Later used on AV-8B/Cs in „Land Camo Scheme” (1980s-90s)

  • HTK-C037 – Light Ghost Grey – FS36375, used in temporary camouflage (covering „green” patches) of USMC AV-8Bs during war over Iraq (ODS)
