    Hello,

    Could anybody tell me if I can use Xtradecal RAF Post War 4",8" and 12" (X48044) RAF Black code letters on my Mk1 Hurricane please?
    I suspect not. Hence the 'Post War' description.

    If that is the case I would then like to know why Hannants feel it not necessary to add the 'Post War' description to the item on their site.
    Then, if somebody would be so kind to tell me the correct Xtradecal part number it would be appreciated. Back to eBay me thinks, as this was my first order from Hannants and I can safely say I do not now find their site user friendly.

    Sorry to the die hard Hannants fan's.

    Cheers Chris

    Thanks Geo, I will try and find that set locally to avoid long waits on shipping time.

    Chris, Hannant's used to stock the 'Tally Ho' range - I got some from them, along with red serials and Dull Red codes. But I believe Tally Ho have stopped production - not sure if they have stocks left at Hannants.
    If not then a call to Hannants might clear up the problem (e-mails seem to go unanswered!), as I think there are some in the Xtradecal range.(you could check the picture of the decal sheets they have, to see the style).
    If all else fails, then print some onto clear decal sheet - makes it easier to apply too, rather than having to cut and apply separate letters and numbers.
    EDIT:- Forgot to add, the WW2 serial numbers were 8 inch, so the 4,8,12 inch is an identifier that they're post war. Look for 8 inch serial numbers.
