Superscale continues its excellent decal releases with a set for Trumpeter's 1/32nd scale A-6 with this release of markings for the A-6A for the VA-115 Arabs. VA-115 transitioned to A-6's during the 1967-70 time frame and these marking represent the Arabs on board the USS Midway in 1973. Specifically, the markings are for build number 156995. The color scheme for the plane was gull gray over white with the tail in black and green cap, rudder in white and green tips and fins to the fuel tanks. The radome was tan also.

This set includes a single sheet with all the markings needed to represent this build. Stencils will come from the kit. national markings are included and the decals are well printed with great registration. The printing was done by Cartograf and is superb. Instructions are in full color and give paint colors in name and FS numbers which is great. A reference list is also provided showing appropriate books that can be used.

Trumpeters kit was long awaited and welcomed. Superscale has filled a need and provided and excellent set of markings to go with that kit. Highly recommended!

My thanks for Squadron Products and their Superscale line for their excellent production of these decals and to IPMS/USA for the chance to review them!

VA115 Eagles

I was a crew member with the Eagles in Atsugi back in the early 90s. I'm building a plastic (Revell)1/48 scale Intruder and am looking for decals to match. Do you know where I might find some? Cheers
