First Look

Old 66 Decals and Starfighter Decals have released this follow-on set to their Apollo 13 recovery sheet, this time renering the markings for Old 66 when it recovered Apollos 8-13. This sheet represents the SH-3D Sea King (BuNo 152711) from HS-4.

Apollo 8-12 Recovery

This set is designed to work with virtually any 1/72 SH-3 kit and recommends the Fujimi, Revell AG, or DML/CyberHobby kits. You'll note that this set has a nice selection of markings and stencils for the airframe to backdate the airframe markings to the Apollo 8-12 recoveries.

You can purchase these decals directly from Starfighter Decals on their website.

My sincere thanks to Starfighter Decals for this review sample!
