  • A-1H of the 514th Fighter Squadron, sn 134636, 1970-71

AOA’s decals are printed in Italy by Cartograph, and my 1/72 sample was in perfect register with vivid colors.

These markings are a colorful alternative to standard USAF and USN Viet Nam era Spad markings. The colorful bands are a classy touch for this brutish prop monster. The beautiful multi-colored band for sn 135224 will be gracing one of my 1/72 Hasegawa A-1s in the near future.

Very highly recommended! Thanks to AOA Decals and IPMS for the review set.
