Hataka have released three new paint sets covering Modern Portuguese, Modern Luftwaffe and Israeli modern jets.
HTK-AS60 “Modern Portuguese AF paint set vol. 2”
After the long and costly Colonial War the Portuguese AF (FAP) urgently required modern aircraft. The successor to the F-86F appeared in 1981 in the form of A-7P Corsair lI (at that time FAP’s role in NATO was Tactical Air Support for Maritime Operations). It also meant introduction of new colours (based on US SEA scheme) onto many FAP aircraft (from elderly Ginas, Alouette IIs / IIIs, Alpha Jets, to the most recent AW101s). F-16 entered service in 1994 and became FAP's first true interceptor since 1980. In 2010 the first of five P-3C Orions (purchased to replace the six P-3P) entered service in overall Light Gull Grey.

HTK-AS60 includes standard colours of Portuguese aircraft since 1980s. The set contains:
• HTK-A012 – Dark Tan – FS30219, used for upper surfaces in camo scheme of Portuguese: Fiat G.91, A-7P, Alpha Jet, SA 330 Puma, Alouette II & III and AW101
• HTK-A016 - Dark Green – FS34079, used for upper surfaces in camo scheme of Portuguese: Fiat G.91, A-7P, Alpha Jet, SA 330 Puma, Alouette II & III and AW101
• HTK-A021 – Medium Green – FS34102, used for upper surfaces in camo scheme of Portuguese: Fiat G.91, A-7P, Alpha Jet, SA 330 Puma, Alouette II & III and AW101
• HTK-A039 – Camouflage Grey – FS36622, used for lower surfaces in camo scheme of Portuguese: Fiat G.91 R3 / R4, first 20 A-7Ps, SA 330 Puma, Alouette and AW101

HTK-AS61 “Modern Luftwaffe paint set vol. 3”
Starting from "forest" Norm 83 camouflage scheme and having drawn lessons from too complex (and too expensive) Norm 81 scheme of F-4Fs, Luftwaffe in 1990s turned towards grey scheme based on US Federal Standard colours (similar to Tactical Paint Scheme widely used by US air forces). Norm 90J pattern was introduced onto both interceptor types - F-4F Phantom IIs previously used by West Germany and MiG-29s inherited after East German AF. Later the similar scheme was introduced as Norm 95 onto Tornado fleet. Together with acquisition of Eurofighter Typhoons a new, one-colour scheme was adopted.

HTK-AS61 includes standard colours of German aircraft since 1990s. The set contains:
• HTK-A037 – Light Ghost Grey – FS36375, used for undersides in Norm 90J (F-4F Phantom II, MiG-29G/GT) and Norm 95 (Tornado) Luftwaffe schemes
• HTK-A035 – Dark Ghost Grey – FS36320, used for top surfaces and underside wing tips in Norm 90J (F-4F, MiG-29G/GT) and Norm 95 (Tornado) schemes
• HTK-A046 – Medium Grey – FS35237, used for upper surfaces in Norm 90J and Norm 95 schemes. Overall colour of current Tornados and Typhoons
• HTK-A233 - Stone Grey – RAL7030, the best match for colour of F-4F Phantom II radome (nose cone) in Luftwaffe Norm 90J scheme (final of the type)
• HTK-A192 – Basalt Grey – RAL7012, the best match for colour of Tornado vertical stabilizer antenna (Norm 95) and MiG-29G/GT radome (Norm 90J)
• HTK-A142 – Camouflage (Barley) Grey – BS381C:626, standard colour of radome (nose cone) and vertical stabilizer antenna of all Eurofighter Typhoon airframes

HTK-AS62 “Israeli Air Force paint set (modern jets)”
The so-called "1970's desert scheme" introduced in July 1967 remained in use on various IAF aircraft (incl. F-4s and A-4s) till their withdrawal from service. At the same time the "Air Superiority Grey" scheme, derived from US "Compass Ghost Grey" pattern, was introduced in 1976 together with first F-15A/Bs (and has later been used on F-15C/D, Kfir C2 and RF-4E Phantom). In 1980 first F-16A/Bs entered service in modified desert scheme. It has been used on all versions of F-16, Kfir C7s and F-15Is. Recently introduced M-346I "Lavi" and F-35I "Adir" have brought new painting schemes into IAF use.

HTK-AS62 includes standard Colours of Israeli planes since late 1970s. The set contains:
• HTK-A035 – Dark Ghost Grey – FS36320, used in "Air Superiority Grey" scheme on F-15A/B, Kfir C2, F-15C/D and some Mirage IIIs. Also on E-2C and RF-4E
