Product  Article by Steve Bamford on Apr 4 2017

      

This new decal sheet from Fireball Modelworks includes markings for 6 different 1/32 Eurocopter UH-72 Lakota to fit the Revell and Heller kits. 

For 1/32 scale it is recommended to use the Revell of Germany 04648 EC145 Medstar/Police kit.  Some of the other earlier boxings of the 1/32 Revell EC145 might work too.  The main things you'll need to make sure your kit contains are the wire strike protection kit with the two blades and the long deflectors on the skid tips.  All Lakotas are equipped with these parts.
