Decal Sheet Title Basic Training Hueys - The USAF's TH-1H and UH-1H Trainers at Fort Rucker
Types Featured TH-1H, UH-1H

Fireball Modelworks is not a well known company, but sheet FMD-24-72, covering TH-1H and UH-1H Hueys as used for basic training by the USAF at Fort Rucker, is a really useful sheet for a previously un-covered type. The TH-1H/UH-1H Hueys of the 23rd Flying Training Squadron at Fort Rucker carried three different schemes, and all are covered by this sheet. Airframes include:-

Instructions comprise 4 sides of A4 color photcopy, with left and right views of each scheme, detailed color information and full stencil information. Information as to how to build the TH-1H is also provided, since no kit is currently available.

The decal sheet itself is printed using an Alps printer and contains enough markings and stencils for all four airframes.

A very interesting sheet of a rarely-seen subject!
