This particular one is for USAF PaveHawks and provides markings for no fewer than 17 aircraft. These are in a variety of schemes from Euro 1 to overall greys to a few desert schemes so pretty much everyone is covered. I'm pretty sure that every unit that's flown them is in there somewhere.

This set is designed for 1/144 HH-60s and is pretty much the same options as what are offered in the other sheets. There are planes from the regular USAF as well as the ANG and AFRC. At least one Alaska ANG plane is equipped with skis. The HH-60 is call signed 'Pedro' so you get a variety of moustaches as some of the planes have on the nose. The sheets are designed for the DML/Dragon kits. Thanks to the instructions being a folded sheet of paper instead of a booklet, I can show most of the options. As you can see, they are generally pretty similar to each other in terms of camouflage.

Instructions are very well done and in full color. You get front views where required and these come with a nicely done history. No stencils provided with this one as you'd go blind finding anything like that in this scale so they are not really needed. However, you do get the big warning markings and rescue areas. There are enough insignia and such to allw you to do several aircraft from this one set.

This is an excellent sheet for those wanting to model this helo in this scale. .
