This particular sheet is part one of AOA's Vietnamese Spads series. They offer this sheet in both 1/72 and 1/48 scale. The subject options on this sheet are:

  • A-1H of the 1st Fighter Squadron, 514th Fighter Squadron, sn 134505, 1962-62
  • A-1H of the 1st Fighter Squadron, 514th Fighter Squadron, sn 135224, 1963
  • A-1H of the 1st Fighter Squadron, 514th Fighter Squadron, sn 134636, 1962-64
  • A-1H of the 1st Fighter Squadron, 514th Fighter Squadron, sn 134636, 1967
  • A-1H of the 1st Fighter Squadron, 514th Fighter Squadron, sn 134636, 1962-62
  • A-1H of the 1st Fighter Squadron, 514th Fighter Squadron, sn 137564, 1966
  • A-1H of the 83rd Special Operations Group, 522 Fighter Squadron, sn 139744, 1966
  • A-1H of the 530th Fighter Squadron, sn 139770, 1970-71
  • A-1H of the 520th Fighter Squadron, sn 139295, 1966
  • A-1H of the 518th Fighter Squadron, sn 137609, 1968
  • A-1H of the 514th Fighter Squadron, sn 134636, 1970-71

AOA's decals are printed in Italy by Cartograph, and my 1/72 sample was in perfect register with vivid colors.

These markings are a colorful alternative to standard USAF and USN Viet Nam era Spad markings. The colorful bands are a classy touch for this brutish prop monster. The beautiful multi-colored band for sn 135224 will be gracing one of my 1/72 Hasegawa A-1s in the near future.

Very highly recommended! Thanks to AOA Decals and IPMS for the review set.
