First Look

MAW-Decals is a relatively new decal company that seems to be well-placed to get quality information - Camp Lejuene, NC. MAW (for Marine Air Wing) is affiliated with VF Decals (VF - Navy Fighter Squadron).

In this release, MAW Decals has broken with their fighter coverage to take a look at USMC rotary-wing aviation. In this set, we have a pair of UH-1Ns and an AH-1W as they appeared fairly recently.

The three aircraft covered in this set are:

  • UH-1N, 159194, HMM-263, 24th MEU, May, 2004
  • UH-1N, 160438, HMLA-167, April 2005
  • AH-1W, 160804, HMLA-167, Feb 2006

The decal printing is crisp and colorful and the instructions are printed in full color.

My sincere thanks to MAW-Decals for this review sample!
