AOA Decals has returned with another impressive new set. When I opened the package, here was the first of two new releases and this one covers the small-deck Seahawks. There are 16 disctinctive aircraft provided in this set with thorough notes on corrections to the Kitty Hawkkit and provides the variations in the lettering found on different airframes. This set also provides one set of airframe stencils so you can produce at least model from this set.
