This great decal set from Werner's Wings gives you more marking options than those that come in the box of your UH-60 kit. They are designed by Mason Doupnik and printed by Cartograph. The set includes markings for 18 different aircraft plus 3 extra, partial markings for aircraft that they could not find all the markings for. The history of the Blackhawk can be followed from its first use in Operation Urgent Fury (Greneda, '83), Operation Desert Shield/Storm (ODS, '90-'91), operations in the Balkans (Kosovo, KFOR; SFOR; NATO, early to late '90s), a brightly colored US Army Korea MedEvac, up through modern day aircraft in Iraq and Afghanistan, including a colorful Ft. Rucker pilot training aircraft. Of the 18 options, 8 are MedEvac aircraft to go with Werner's Wings recently released UH-60 MedEvac Interior set (35-08). To go along with the MedEvac aircraft, there is also a section that describes how to apply all the specific red cross decals on them.
The Markings decal set comes in all three (1/35, 1/48, and 1/72) helicopter scales.
Stencil decal set
For those of you who want to build more than one Blackhawk Werner's Wings also provides a separate stencil decal set in 1/35th and 1/48th scales. This set provides all the common stencils and warnings found around the aircraft. The are very finely written and look great. There are even data plates and other small stencils not found on the current UH-60 kit decals. These will enhance any Blackhawk model you build.
These are great sets and I highly recommend them to dress up your Blackhawk models.
