AOA Decals is back with a nice set of markings options for Trumpeter's 1/32 A-6 Intruder kits. This set provides a pair of A-6A examples during the Vietnam cruise and a pair of A-6E examples a few years later.

The aircraft provided in this decal set include:

  1. A-6A, 152946, VA-75, USS Saratoga, AC/500, 1972, CAG aircraft
  2. A-6A, 155622, VA-75, USS Saratoga, AC/501, 1972, Skipper's aircraft
  3. A-6E, 152587, VA-75, USS Saratoga, AC/500, 1975, CAG aircraft
  4. A-6E, 154135, VA-75, USS Saratoga, AC/502, 1976

This provides the interesting marking variations for the squadron during their Vietnam cruise as well as a few years later. There are sufficient markings for one example, but if you use the national markings in the kit, you can do at least two models from this set.

For more information about this set and the other releases from AOA Decals, visit their website at www.aoadecals.com.

My sincere thanks to AOA Decals for this review sample!
