This decal sheet by Revi Decals of the Czech Republic is a fine quality release depicting four helicopters of the United States Army during the Vietnam War era.  The schemes depicted are mostly in Olive Drab FS34087.

The decals are superbly printed by Tally Ho and they have good colour saturation and register.  The carrier film is ultra thin and these decals will need to be handled carefully and should snuggle down into the surface detail well.  The carrier film then should almost totally disappear under a coat of clear.

Revi has done a great job of the decal artwork and the instruction sheet artwork.  The colour instruction sheet provides some good detail of colours and decal positioning for the aircraft.

 

The four schemes provided are as follows:

 

  1. Bell UH-1D “Nevada Gambler” of the 227th Aviation Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division based at Phoc Vinh from August to October 1969.  This aircraft carried two magazines manufactured from old 44gallon oil drums designed to carry flares t illuminate the battlefield.
  1. Hughes OH-6A “Loach” of the 101st Air Assault Division, This aircraft was fitted with a 7.62mm General Electric M-134 six barrel rotary mini gun protruding from the left hand door.
  1. Bell AH-1G “Pandora’s Box” 2/20 ARA, Blue Max based in Vietnam 1972.  The rear seat was occupied by CW2 Wayne Richardson.
  1. Bell OH-58A Kiowa of the C Company, 17th Cavalry Division In 1970 it was flown by LT Larry Brown. 

Highly Recommended
