AOA Decals has returned with another interesting set of subjects for the Trumpeter 1/32 A-4E/F Skyhawk kit.Sthis set four provides another six examples from three squadrons during the Vietnam air war.
The subjects included in this set:

The instructions walk you through the placement of the markings around the Skyhawk airframe. This set is designed for the Trumpeter A-4E/F kit and provides some nice notes on how to correct smaller details to render an accurate Vietnam era Scooter. This set provides airframe stenciling for one example though you can also acquire set 32012 which provides another complete set of stenciling should you wish to render more than one aircraft out of this decal set.

My sincere thanks to AOA Decals for this review sample!
