This decal set is targeted to the array of Kamov kits produced by Zvezda in 1/72nd scale. The printing on these two sheets is nicely done and you can see the sheets are crammed with decals. With 61 different aircraft option on these sheets, you can certainly replicate quite a few of these Kamov aircraft.

This is a nice set and will add some nice fidelity to your next Helix project.

Definitely recommended!
