Found some 1/48 Huey decals I can use
Posted by 1943Mike on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 7:14 PM

OK, I found a set of decals I believe I can use - not Fireball Modelworks but Werner's. It has the "Winged Assault" crest for the front of the Huey that I've been looking for. Also has the blue circle and numbers that I can use.

In addition, I just spoke to my CFI on the phone and I'll be taking at least one more lesson - I just can't give up learning to fly just yet. Big Smile

Until I quit taking lessons (only took three) I enjoyed talking to my CFI's. They are a husband and wife team (been up with both) and the gentleman, Wayne, is about 6 months younger than me so I felt comfortable talking to him. He was in country in '66 and '67 and flew Slick Hueys.

I'd like to build my Kittyhawk Huey for him but I can't find any decals for his unit except the defunct Fireball Modelworks ones.

If any of you know where I can find the Fireball Modelworks set in 1/48 I'd appreciate your chiming in and letting me know where I might buy them. I've tried eBay - no joy.

If any of you happen to have a set that you're willing to part with, please PM me and let me know how much you'd like for it.

I'll include a photo of a painting that Wayne has in his building/hangar that he told me has the mounts with the markings he flew. I'll also include a screen shot of what I found on Scalemates. I did find the old Fireball Modelworks site. I've emailed Joseph and gotten this reply:

 

"I stopped producing those decals about three years ago and the only way I know of finding them now is in the secondhand market.  Maybe posting a want ad on the Aircraft Resource Center forum would be the best route."

 

Before trying to figure out where the "Aircraft Resource Center" forum is, I thought I'd check with you guys.

I've posted this in the Helicopter and General Discussion forums just to cover the bases.

Any help would be very much appreciated.
