  1. First of hopefully more, here's a new "budget" minded sheet of the high viz period. This new release, 32-029, is another 1/32 A-6A sheet and continues focus on VMA(AW)-533 Hawks. The first AOA 1/32 sheet (32-001) included their three overall schemes used during their Vietnam War deployments (1967-69 at Chu Lai and 1972-73 at Nam Phong), and another earlier sheet (32-003) included their Desert Storm scheme. This new sheet 32-029 expands that coverage to include some of the schemes in the early to mid-1970s at MCAS Iwakuni, Japan. Similar to the earlier 1/32 F-4 sheets, this time again only primary airframe stencils and markings are provided (for one aircraft). However, for those looking for full airframe coverage, a specific extensive sheet covering the A-6 airframe stencils and markings is available to purchase separately (32-002 and now 32-026). Price TBD (expected to be $10-15) w/free shipping in US http://www.aoadecals.com/
  2. With Fisher's big fat face A-1 conversions now out, what is the interest level for VNAF decals for it? I could do a full release sheet covering them but not committed to releasing yet. Potential sheet could provide eight VNAF schemes and a "bonus" USAF option (it kept the tiger face). Two periods of markings are provided for all airframes except one aircraft. I'm guessing cost would be in the $20-25 range? So, is it worth it progressing/finalizing? This is early look of pretty much what it would include, some tweaking would be done and some smaller markings added from show here:
  3. I keep coming back to my favorite aircraft, here's more new upcoming A-6 Intruder sheets and updated reprint of the stencil sheet. Similar to the previous VA-65 Tigers sheet, these again only cover one squadron, this time VA-75 Sunday Punchers. 32-027 (Part 1): Includes two sets of basic schemes, both CAG and line jet schemes included. First pair (A-6A) cover their third and final Vietnam deployment and the next pair (A-6E) cover their more well known postwar white tail scheme. Includes markings for MER identifications as well as fuel tank markings. Also included is a new expanded release of the complete A-6 stencil/marking sheet (32-026) which supersedes the original (32-002), this new sheet also includes a landing gear placards, walkway striping, and a few other minor additions. As before, it will also be available for purchase separately. 32-028 (Part 2): A relatively small sheet covering two low viz schemes from the late 80s to the Desert Storm period. Decals also included for fuel tanks, tailhooks, ejection seats, ladder wells, landing gear, and speed brake interiors. Prices TBD www.AOAdecals.com 32-027: 32-026 (included with 32-027) 32-028:
  4. ALL 1/72 & 1/32 OV-10A Bronco decals are now on sale for this weekend at 20+% off at: www.AOAdecals.com Sale applies to direct purchases only (not applicable to ebay purchases). Prices are marked down on each page; if sale price not shown be sure to refresh/reload the page. (happy father's day!) 1/72 1/32
  5. 14 schemes total - 11 O-2A (10 USAF grey and black, 1 VNAF grey) & 3 O-2B (USAF camo-ed). Included O-2B options in the hopes Roden will release an O-2B boxing or someone will produce a B conversion, or for those looking to scratchbuild or even those not particularly concerned with A vs B differences. Enough data/stencil markings are provided for at least two complete aircraft - potentially more if you go with the overall black options or O-2B since neither wore many stencils. Stencils are for the Vietnam period, no kit decals are needed. Also included is bonus "THE FAC" decals to replace the kit version (the black schemes in this release don't use it.) Estimated release in Feb. Price $19.50. www.AOAdecals.com
  6. Will be doing another A-6 sheet afterall.... only covering VA-65 Tigers. Will span 25yrs of their aircraft though, starting with their three Vietnam War deployments (including the early camo test scheme and the ill-fated 1967 Forrestal cruise), then into the mid 70s period with their more well known schemes, and the beginning of low viz in the early 80s, and ending at Desert Storm with several options. Both sheets now available at www.AOAdecals.com 32-023 - six schemes covering the high viz period (includes full stencils for one aircraft): 32-024 - four schemes covering the low viz period:
  7. This will be somewhat limited release due to the nature of the subject since it will require a conversion set to make an F-4B out of a Tamiya 1/32 F-4 Phantom kit. As usual for AOA the subjects are from the Vietnam War with six options (3 different aircraft) for VMFA-115 Silver Eagles and two options for VMFA-314 Black Knights. It will include national insignia and the most common data stencils/markings (not complete F-4 airframe data). (The eagle markings look dark grey in these images but they're being printed in silver metallic.) Now in stock. Price $24 www.AOAdecals.com
  8. This F-4J Phantom scheme I wanted for probably 15+ years for myself and finally decided to do it and release it as a simple "low budget" sheet that features only the squadron specific markings. Although VMFA-334 Falcons has been covered before, the falcon insignia in particular was somewhat lacking in any scale until now. Also in order to keep cost down, only one aircraft is covered, although it can be represented either from Vietnam or later in 1969 when -334 were in Japan. (edit...) Contrary to what I initially planned, included will be national insignia and intake warnings as well as a few other common markings (similar to what was provided on my earlier F-4J VF-143 sheet) Now in stock. Price $11.50 Printed by Microscale www.AOAdecals.com
  9. I know Zotz released an F-4B MiG killer sheet, how about any interest in some mud movers? Knowing that 1/32 F-4B Phantom conversions are pricey with limited market, if there is enough interest in VMFA-115 to justify printing decals I'd like to release this. May need to do pre-orders in this case to make sure there are actual sales, but first looking to gauge interest level before I get to that point. I have three of their aircraft covered, each from two time periods from Vietnam covering two basic schemes:
  10. The previously released 1/48 and 1/72 O-1 sheet has been expanded (3 new VNAF schemes), corrected, improved now for the new 1/32 Roden kit. This time they'll be printed by Cartograf. 32-019 covers US Army and USAF (includes both blue and black USAF markings) 32-020 covers mainly VNAF with a few more US Army plus USMC $18 each (free shipping in US) Now available www.AOAdecals.com (Click images for larger views) 32-019: 32-020:
  11. 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 Now in stock www.AOAdecals.com (Click images for larger views) 32017: 32018:
  12. Vietnam A-4’s were supposed to be the second AOA release after the initial USMC A-6A sheet about a year ago but they got pushed back for various reasons. They are up for release finally (in 1/32) - estimated to be available in January. Rather than one extra-large release again (like the last A-6A sheet…) this time they’ve been broken down to somewhat smaller sizes: Part 1 (32-010) 10 schemes (also will include stencil sheet 32-012) VMA-223 Bulldogs – 5 schemes covering 1966-69 from Chu Lai VA-94 Mighty Shrikes – 4 schemes, 3 cruises (Bon Homme Richard 1968, 1969, and 1970 - replacement for the very inaccurate “BOBBIE†CAG jet) VA-106 Gladiators – 1 scheme (Intrepid 1968-69) Part 2 (32-011) 9 schemes (also will include stencil sheet 32-012) VMA-311 Tomcats – 4 schemes covering 1966-70 from Chu Lai VA-144 Roadrunners – 2 schemes, 2 cruises (Kitty Hawk 1967-68, and Bon Homme Richard 1969) VA-155 Silver Foxes – 3 schemes, 2 cruises (Coral Sea 1964-65, Ranger 1968-69) Stencil sheet will also be available for individual sale in limited number. Profiles posted - see page 2 And yes, the intention is to release in smaller scale at later date. Now in stock and available to order www.AOAdecals.com (Click image for larger view)
  13. Even though there are several other squadrons I planned (and wanted) to cover, this part 4 (32-014) release covering the Vietnam A-4 decal series will be the last one in 1/32. 32-014 will have 6 schemes: VMA-211 Wake Island Avengers – two A-4E schemes covering 1968-69 from Chu Lai, one with and one without the hump. VA-22 Fighting Redcocks – two A-4F schemes from the Bon Homme Richard 1970 cruise, one CAG scheme and one standard line scheme (the CAG coincidently is same cruise as the "BOBBIE" VA-94 scheme in previous sheet, this also covers all of BHR's A-4 squadrons between part 1, 2, and 4 decals with VA-94, -144, and now -22). VA-55 Warhorses – two schemes, one A-4E from the USS Ranger 1965-66 cruise and one A-4F from the USS Hancock cruise. Again, a copy of the stencil sheet (32-012) will also be included. Price $22 Now in stock www.AOAdecals.com (Click image for larger view)
  14. Next 1/32 AOA sheet (32-016) release is a little different as it covers one specific F-4J Phantom (BuNo 155887) as she appeared during three Vietnam cruises while with the same squadron (VF-143 Pukin' Dogs, callsign "Taproom") and also same modex each time (102). Not a MiG killer, just one example of the many, many other Phantoms that took part in the war daily. The Pukin' Dogs Vietnam F-4B's have been covered in decal form before (again, because of MiG kills), their later wartime F-4Js have been neglected until now. Sheet covers the Vietnam/WESTPAC cruises: USS Constellation 1969-70, USS Enterprise 1971-72, and USS Enterprise 1972-73. Among others, thankfully received help from 102's own plane captain Tom Chergi from the 72-73 cruise. For the 1972-73 cruise, this aircraft also bore the name of 143's XO, CDR Harley Hall, who sadly become the last Navy combat loss on 27 January 1973 flying Taproom 113 (the day the Paris Peace Accords were signed) and last American to be listed as POW. While his RIO was later released, there is still controversy and contradictions surrounding the ultimate fate of CDR Hall. If anyone saw the 1975 documentary "Threshold - The Blue Angel Experience", this was filmed during CDR Hall's time when he was the Blue Angels flight leader and as such is featured in it. Back to the sheet: Unlike vast majority of AOA releases, only minimal stenciling/common markings are included, such as the different ejection seat warning triangles used for each cruise, static port stencils, national insignias, and two styles of jet intake warnings and RESCUE markings. F-4's were liberally covered with stencils and is too large of a project to be covered for this release. A full F-4 stencil and panel number decal sheet may be a future release from AOA (not currently planned as of today). The sheet also includes fuel tank and FOD cover squadron identifiers. Now in stock. Printed by Cartograf. Price $22 (free shipping in the US) www.AOAdecals.com (Click image for larger view)
  15. I thought I posted about this already on LSP but I guess I didn't. AOA sheet (SS-001) will be for the A-6 Intruder again but this time it will be a small special sheet with all three scales on one sheet. These Intruders were A-6E TRAM aircraft modified in 1989 to represent A-6A during Vietnam in 1972 for a particular movie. The sheet includes the exterior markings to reproduce Devil 501 or 505. Decals for crew helmets for both aircraft and one external fuel tank are also provided. (The national insignias are intentionally mis-proportioned on the decal sheet compared to specs, this is how they appeared on the actual 501 and 505) Now in stock. Printed by Microscale. Price $13 www.AOAdecals.com
  16. I rewrote this (Jan 9) - these will are released. A package of AMS Resin’s previously released A-4C conversion (for Trumpeter kit) along with new AOA decals. Now available: http://aoadecals.com/32013/ $60 US / $69 international - which includes AMS Resin conversion and the the AOA decal sheet (free shipping in US) This conversion package would include three A-4C’s from Vietnam. To my knowledge, none of these schemes have ever been done in any scale before: VMA-214 Blacksheep 1966/67 VA-146 Blue Diamonds 1964-65 VA-216 Black Diamonds 1964-65. Decals are on one full size sheet, and as usual include stencils as well as specific squadron drop tank markings for two tanks each (and helmet decals for all three schemes as well).
  17. AOA's favorite "modern" aircraft. Did not anticipate releasing another A-6A release in 1/32 but couldn't resist, too many combat schemes not covered. This is a LARGE release, largest by AOA (so far) - four full sheets of decals. 16 options, including two A-6B Mod 0 Iron Hands and two KA-6D tankers. Plus three CAG schemes - including the never done in any scale "patience my ass" vulture 224 scheme VMA(AW)-224 Bengals: USS Coral Sea 1971-72 (5 options - 3x A-6A including CAG scheme, 1x A-6B, & 1x KA-6D) VA-95 Green Lizards (technically not "war" but supported Operation End Sweep along North Vietnam): USS Coral Sea 1973 (2 options - 2x A-6A, including CAG scheme) VA-165 Boomers: USS Ranger 1967-68 (1 option - A-6A) USS Ranger 1968-69 (1 option - A-6A) USS America 1970 (1 option - A-6A) USS Constellation 1971-72 (1 option - A-6A CAG scheme) VA-196 Main Battery: USS Constellation 1968-69 (1 option - A-6A) USS Ranger 1969-70 (1 option - A-6A) USS Enterprise 1971-72 (2 options - 1x A-6A & x1 A-6B) USS Enterprise 1972-73 (1 option - KA-6D) Now available www.AOAdecals.com (Click image for larger view)
  18. The new 1/32 decal sheets are now in stock and ready to ship - www.AOAdecals.com 32-003 The Intruders' Sandbox - USN/USMC A-6E Intruders in Libyan Strikes & Desert Storm This sheet covers all three Intruder squadrons involved in the strikes against Libya in March and April 1986 as part of Operation Prairie Fire and Operation El Dorado Canyon respectively; and the sheet also covers two squadrons in 1991 from Operation Desert Storm. 7 Marking Options Included: 1 option for VA-34 Blue Blasters, USS America, Operations Prairie Fire & El Dorado Canyon (1986) 1 option for VA-55 Warhorses, USS Coral Sea, Operations Prairie Fire & El Dorado Canyon (1986) 1 option for VA-85 Black Falcons, USS Saratoga, Operations Prairie Fire & El Dorado Canyon (1986) 2 options for VA-35 Black Panthers, USS Saratoga, Operation Desert Storm (1991) 2 options for VMA(AW)-533 Hawks, Sheikh Isa Air Base (Bahrain), Operation Desert Storm (1991) Decals also included for crew helmets, fuel tanks, ejection seats, VA-35 MERs, & VA-55 ordnance markings. Printed by Cartograf
  19. The next AOA sheet (32-015) will be for the 1/32 Kitty Hawk T-28 Trojan kit. As usual with AOA the focus is again on aircraft that were in combat (with one exception). Sheet will have 18 schemes covering various nationalities. Although none are specifically marked with the US national insignia, some were directly unmarked US aircraft and many others were US operated/maintained under the disguise of other nationalities due to the "secret" war. Laos (5 schemes) - T-28B/C/D Thai (3 schemes) - T-28D Cambodia (1 scheme) / Khmer (2 schemes) - T-28B/D VNAF (5 schemes) - T-28B/C US (2 schemes) - T-28D A few of these schemes are very similar to one another with only some minor differences. Some of it is due to some having the Yankee extraction setup (future kit/conversion), as well as some D-5 aircraft, and also two C aircraft since the Kitty Hawk B/D kit suggests a C is planned (if not, then for conversions). Two types of stencils will be provided - one as the original full letters and other as the sprayed/stencil letters. Should also point out the Loa national insignia included is specifically based on the actual painted markings applied to the T-28, it is not based on the Wikipedia insignia image that has been used incorrectly on other decals previously released. Yes the wiki version sure looks nice with fancy detail, but it is not accurate to the real insignia carried on the RLAF marked T-28s! More important point: unfortunately the 1st Air Commando "VNAF" shark-mouthed aircraft have some license taken on colors and a significant compromise was taken on the shark-mouths. About 30 photos were available of their aircraft, and for some reason all except one were in black and white - and that one that was in color, that specific aircraft didn't have the lightning bolt on the tail (figures). Various written accounts say the rudder was light blue, blue, and others say red. In b/w photos it appears very dark, lighter than the inside of the eyes which is known to be red from the color photo. Both red and blue bolts are provided but I've shown blue on the profiles (light blue seems highly unlikely). The inside of the sharkmouth is usually shown in illustrations as red; in the b/w photos, some aircraft, and in this case specifically aircraft 371 is one, the inside of the mouth is noticeably darker than the inside of the eye (red), while on 372 the inside of the mouth appears closer in color to the red eye color. This fact, plus the extent and number of curvatures required to fit a full decal with mouth color provided, is why I elected to only provide the teeth/"lips" as decals and leave it up to the modeler for the inner color. So the inside of the mouth will have to be painted first on the kit, which could be a real pain. Not ideal, but like I said, I did a compromise as I wanted to at least offer the chance for these aircraft. Printed by Microscale. Now in stock Price $20 www.AOAdecals.com The two sheets:

This latest sheet will depart from previous AOA releases in that it will NOT include complete airframe stencils but instead will have only the larger common markings. (Full stencils of course are available separately already, 32-006 and 32-007.) 32-008 – Da Nang War Horses – USAF/USMC OV-10A Broncos in the Vietnam War Price TBD: More info: www.AOAdecals.com (Click image for larger view)
  22. AOAdecals will be releasing small decals sets covering some ordnance, first releases: 32-WO1 – Mk.20 Rockeyes Complete markings for the CBU loaded with live Mk.118 cluster bombs. Similar to the real deal, the yellow stenciled markings are presented with slight variations compared to each other so that each set is a little unique. Inspection windows are also provided as decals. 32-WO2 – Mk.77 Mod.4/5/6 Fire Bombs Complete markings for the Mark77 Fire/Fuel Bomb. Markings are provided to represent either the Mod. 4, 5, or 6 bomb. Prices TBD. More info: www.AOAdecals.com (Click image for larger view) Ordnance decals:
  23. As mentioned previously, AOA will be releasing a "small" sheet covering USAF Bronco FACs from the Vietnam War. Again one set of stencils will be included, and the stencil sheet will also be available separately. This sheet will also be released in 1/72 and will include the same schemes. If/when a modern 1/48 kit comes out, the plan is release all the Bronco sheets in that scale as well. This sheet covers 15 aircraft with instructions showing option for 16 (one aircraft is represented at two time periods). Also one can be built either as a standard Bronco or a PAVE NAIL, the overall markings were the same pre/post mod. Profiles will be posted in the next couple days. Profiles posted now. Price is $20.
