First Look

AOA Decals is back with a new release for Scooter modelers. In this release, we have an extensive set of high visibility airframe stencils used on the Skyhawk before the adoption of the (boring) low-visibility camouflage.

A-4 Skyhawk Airframe Stencils (High Viz)

This sheet provides stenciling used on the A-4A, A-4B, A-4C/L, A-4E, A-4F, and A-4M. The decal set is very nicely done and provides a wealth of stencils to make your Scooter stand out. Note the odd-shaped US marking in the bottom-center of the sheet, this is designed to wrap around the air refueling boom when the national markings were carried on the nose.

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

My sincere thanks to AOA Decals for this review sample!
