Werner’s Wings is a Baltimore, MD based firm that offers decals and resin detail parts for scale modelers. Founder Floyd Werner has been around scale modeling for many years and is one of the hobby’s leading authorities on US Army rotary wing aircraft (not just through modeling, but from years of very personal experience!), and WWII Luftwaffe fighters. A quick search of the IPMS Review or other modeling-related sites will yield plenty of background on his considerable modeling skills and knowledge.
Floyd’s passion for modeling modern rotary aircraft subjects is evident in this release of resin skis designed to replicate the Landes Airglas skis used on Sikorsky’s UH-60 Blackhawk Series and Boeing’s AH-64 Apache series in both 48 and 35th scales. The subjects of these sets continue Werner’s Wings commitment to providing quality resin and metal detailing sets and decals for rotor-modeling interests.
This set provides simple add-on ski attachments for any model of a UH-60 series or AH-64 series in 1/48 or 1/35 scale. These highly detailed resin parts will transform your model into a chopper that is equipped to handle snowy environments for rescue or attack, depending upon your subject matter. For those choosing to model a UH or MH-60 “Jolly Green Giant” rescue bird, Floyd has included the jolly green “footprint” as decals for inclusion in the underside of the skis.
Instructions are graphics and simple to follow. The instruction sheet includes some photos of real-life installations for reference. Some experience working with resin and adding scratch built parts will be helpful.
Very highly recommended! Thanks to Werner’s Wings and IPMS for the review sets.
