Xtradecal's 1/48 P-51 Mustang Collection will be available online from Squadron.com



Last year I reviewed the Werner’s Wings Ride of the Valkyries UH-1D/H decals which was a comprehensive set of 13 different aircraft from the Vietnam War. Now Floyd has produced a further set which has increased to 22 different schemes of which 11 are from the Vietnam era and the remainder from many varied periods of time up to 2011.



These decals are normally printed by Microscale and although not mentioned on the sheet I would presume this set is as well. Careful checking of the sheet shows no flaws and perfect register.



The colours are bold, and all decals are crisp and clear. Werner’s Wings have stated that these decals are suitable for any UH-1D/H model kit in 1/48 which is handy to know.



The instruction sheets consist of 3 A4 double sided glossy sheets printed in colour. As usual, a good deal of notes are supplied explaining modifications for Hueys, notes on their service in the US Army and individual notes for each of the schemes where appropriate.

These sets enable us to model more options for UH-1D/H schemes. Between this set and the previous set, if you can’t find a great Huey scheme then I don’t know what you want. Knowing of Floyd Werner’s involvement with the UH1-D/H in the services, you can be assured of the accuracy of the sets.

I thought I had chosen the scheme for my Huey build but this set has just added some doubts.  

A most comprehensive decal set which I would highly recommend to Huey model builders.

Thanks to Werner's Wings for the sample.
