DECAL REVIEW


Werner's Wings Decals # 48-015
UH-1D/H Stencils -- 1:48 Scale

 

The iconic Bell UH-1 Iroquois – better known as the Huey – was the legendary mainstay of rotary wing utility, transport, and Medevac roles in the Vietnam War and beyond.  In this release, Werner’s Wings provides 1:48 scale decals for airframe and interior stencils for the UH-1D and UH-1H during the Vietnam conflict.  These decals are designed with the Kitty Hawk kit in mind, but can certainly be used with any other 1:48 scale Huey kit (e.g., Italieri, Esci/Ertl, Monogram).

The stencil set covers the original high-visibility yellow markings and also includes the later lower-visibility and lower contrast black stencils.  Multiple decals of single tail numbers in black, white, and yellow means the builder can arrange digits as they need in order to model any specific UH-1.  Stencils on the exterior appear to be very thorough and complete, and there are even stencils for the inside of doors and two cockpit control panels. 

An added element to this decal sheet involves a series of corrections for the decals in the Kitty Hawk kit.  Each of the four markings options in the kit require decal “fixes” for some overlooked details and this set provides the decals to make those fixes.  Further, a fifth (and new) markings option, “Bikini Blue,” is included in this set. 

Werner's Wings has a reputation for doing outstanding work, and these decals certainly hold up to the high expectation of this decal sheet.  One can really appreciate the very thorough research, careful decal design, and flawless, state-of-the-art printing.  The decal artwork was rendered by Mason Doupinik and printed by Microscale.  The decal sheet itself is beautiful.  Colors look great and are opaque, and even some of the finest stencils in 1:48 scale are legible.
