AOA Decals specializes in Navy and Marine Corps subjects from the Vietnam era. They have branched out slightly with the first sheet for Roden’s lovely O-1 Bird Dog by adding Army/ USAF planes. Part 2 continues and goes back to the USMC and adds markings in for additional Army and VNAF planes also. Let’s take a dive into Part 2.
Part 2 of the 1/32nd Bird Dog coverage includes thirteen marking options for various O-1 A/G/E Bird Dogs from the Vietnam War:
Inside the package, you’ll find three view drawings for all 13 options. Each option has specifics for each plane including paint schemes, specific antennae configurations as well as detail about the markings. Color call outs are specific and in beautiful full color drawings. There is a separate full color sheet showing all needed stencils. Lastly, there is a large beautifully printed sheet from Cartograf covering all the options. The data/stencil set provides for one aircraft with variations of certain markings.
Another excellent set for a great kit. The best thing about this set is the colorful schemes and number of options available to really set off your Bird Dog. Highly Recommended!
My thanks to AOA Decals for the opportunity to review this wonderful set and to IPMS/USA for the chance to review it.
