Print Scale sheet 72-423 provides markings for two C-130Es, both in the Euro One scheme. The aircraft are:

  • 70-1264 'Back Off Saddam' from the 435th TAW during Operation Desert Storm;
  • 70-1271 from the 435th TAW at Rhein-Main AB, Germany during Operation Storm in April 1992.

Printscale provide a full A4 set of decals with complete wing, fuselage and tail walkways plus full stencilling for one aircraft. The white of the markings do not appear to be sufficiently opaque but the decals are in perfect register.

Instructions comprise left side views of each aircraft plus small color photographs, full stencilling guides and a four-view showing the Euro One camouflage scheme, although for some reason no FS numbers are provided.
