A-6A Intruder VA-95 'Green Lizards' Decals
Superscale continues its releases for Trumpeters 1/32nd scale A-6 with a marking set for the VA-95 Green Lizards. VA-95 has been active/inactive many times flying Skyhawks, Skyraiders and the Intruders. The decals here represent the Green Lizards during August 1974 aboard the USS Coral Sea. There are several great web sites dedicated to VA-95 and a quick Google search will find them with lots of photos.
The decals come in two sheets. One contains the markings for the kit including some of the major stencils. A second small sheets contains the national markings. Both sheets have great registration and color and are printed by Cartograf in Italy. Decals are provided for one airframe, build number 156995. the kit has a great color scheme with the gull gray over white being the primary colors. The intakes are a deep green and the radome is tan. The markings really highlight the tail. The paint scheme is in full color on a single sheet and has references for those wishing further reading.
Trumpeters kit was long awaited and Superscale continues to provide and excellent set of markings to go with that kit. Highly recommended!
My thanks for Squadron Products and their Superscale line for their excellent production of these decals and to IPMS/USA for the chance to review them!
