 This next sheet from Wolfpack Decals covers helicopters and I'm sure it will be well received as this is a genre that does not get a lot of things made for them. One of the things I really like about WolfPack Decals is they provide extensive background information on each of the subjects on the sheet.  In addition to the historical background and images, WolfPack Decals provides official camouflage markings guide and a list of kits that can be used with the sheet. All of this background material helps you to make the most accurate aircraft model around.

So let us dive right in and see what is on this sheet.

From the top is a UH-1N from the 20th SOS during the J-Catch Program in 1980. It is painted with an overspray of light grey making a splotch paint scheme.

Two CV-22Bs are next, The upper one is from the 8th SOS while the full airframe aircraft is from the 71st SOS. Both are 2007 schemes.

Back to the UN-1N for some 1970 Vietnam birds with the 20th SOS. You get three sets of serials and the 'Green Hornet' fuselage markings.

Moving ahead to nowadays is an HH-60G with the 41st RQS at Moody AFB in the current grey scheme.

Just so the Army doesn't feel left out, there is a UH-60L from 10th AvnRgt, 10th Mt Division at Ford Drum NY in 2008

Finally, the last MH-53M from the 20th SOS in 2008. There are two sets of serials provided for this aircraft and it is now in the USAF Museum.

The sheet provides all the insignia and major markings that are needed. I notice on this sheet that some markings, particularly the insignia, have rather extensive clear carrier film, so you may wish to trim these before use.  This sheet is very crisply printed by Fantasy Printshop in the UK with the markings in perfect register.
