One Waterslide Decal Sheet with Markings for One Helicopter
A very detailed model of the special operations helicopter flown by the 160th SOAR of the 101st Airborne division. Fit and detail aer very good. The only problem one may have with this kit, is that you have to cut away the stock fuel tanks and add the kit supplied long range fuel tanks. These will require some filler to blend them in once installed. But this should be no problem for the average modeler. There are aftermarket accessories avaviable for this kit. It builds up into a impressive model. I would recommend this kit.
