Now that the summer break has ended, AOA's next release is the previously mentioned VNAF A-1H (AD-6) Skyraiders. Turned out to be too many for one sheet, so there will be two releases, each one still also pretty full. The sheets cover overall 36440 grey, grey over white, overall 36473 grey, USAF SEA camo, and various VNAF style camo Skyraiders.

32-017 will have 10 schemes (8 aircraft)
32-018 will have 11 schemes

Prices $20 each (free shipping in US)
Printed by Cartograf

I don't do pre-orders (too much work for me to keep track of)

I based the sheet on the Trumpeter kit. The fuselage bands are extra long on the bottom to account for some movement and fitting to the ZM kit (hopefully).

Are the stencils needed to complete a Skyraider on the sheet?

That depends on your preference and which scheme.

I treated this release like the recent F-4J sheet as a "normal" general aftermarket decal release in that the sheets primarily cover the specific schemes with only the main common stencils provided. In this case, only provided are various optional rescue arrows, Aeroprop and prop data stencils (which were not even used on all schemes), canopy stencil markings, and couple other basics and also some variations that were more unique to certain schemes and a few optionals.

It appeared only the early (grey) schemes had the small text type airframe stencils - which isn't provided on this sheet. The VNAF and USAF style camo-ed aircraft had very-very little to no stencils. If anything, some only had rescue arrows (provided). Also provided are the specific warning triangles for those camo-ed A-1's that had the Yankee seat installed.

Oh yeah I am for a sheet for sure!

Love the VNAF schemes.

And with leftovers I can do a VNAF Bearcat. 😀

If your a Skyraider fan these sheets are a 'must have' in your decal stash, long overdue and very welcome!

Well done to AoA for doing these subjects, I'm in for both sheets!   :thumbsup: 


Don't just talk about it, build it!
