  1. The HMM-264 numbers on their CH-46s are different style than the 162 ones.
  2. Thanks for purchasing. I try to get orders out no later than next day.
  3. Possibly but I don't have any idea when that would be if it were to happen. Also depends on the sales of this one whether it gets done sooner rather than later.
  4. Yes the larger 4 numbers are the last four of the BuNo, it would match the smaller F-4B/BuNo identifier marking on the tail (in this case, they don't match as you've noticed). I'm not familar with VF-111 and MiG killers, I'm not sure which BuNo is the correct one? Also be aware that all of the lettering/numbering (BuNos, modex, carriers, squadron designations) on that sheet is also drawn in 45deg USAF/Army style which is not correct.
  5. Now in stock and available to purchase at www.AOAdecals.com
  6. These three sheets are now in stock and available to purchase at www.AOAdecals.com
  7. Huh? Not sure how you read that much into my reply. I guess then I'm sorry for posting a modeling comment in your thread, and also thinking the title may have been referring to new scoop that a Bronco model was coming back again. Clearly I wasn't alone in thinking this though.
  8. Well I got excited at the post title, I thought it was going to be about the Hazmat 1/48 kit finally resurrected under different company.
  9. Interesting, with Weber the CO that would've placed it before late June 86 when Chewning became CO.
  10. Ya I noticed 501 sometimes had both markings and sometimes only the MiG like you saw, I didn't realize they were still carrying them into 1987. Here's 501 that is stated as Jun 86 but only has the one marking? (Chewning was CO from Jun 86-Dec87) https://www.airfighters.com/photo/150072/M/USA-Navy/Grumman-A-6E-Intruder-G-128/159317/ But this one even later in Oct 86 shows both (John Henson was CO in 1989 and this pic if dated correctly dates from the time of Chewning still as CO, so Chewning name should've still been there as the Jun 86 pic shows, although Henson was with VA-55 in 1986. Actually photos of 501 taken during the March strikes show it had misspelled John "Hensen" then so that was later corrected to "Henson" apparently). https://www.airfighters.com/photo/43476/M/USA-Navy/Grumman-A-6E-Intruder-G-128/159317/ Other photos I've seen shown 501 having both. The other squadron appeared to have both as well (like 502, and obviously 503 on the decal sheet). Not sure why 501's changes. Why didn't it have both markings already by the June photo and why take so long after Apr 86 to put the boat one (back?) on there. And if you saw it again in 1987 then for some reason the boat was removed (again?). Or perhaps the photo above stated from Oct may have been earlier than June 86 based on having two markings and not having Chewning name's on it as the CO?
  11. Originally expected later this month but should be first half of April instead.
  12. The VA-34 option was subsequently changed from the initial file submitted and also an additional second option was added, both AB-502 and AB-513 directly took part in the strikes, turns out the original one included (AB-510) wasn't one of the strike aircraft so it was replaced by similar AB-513. Images above show the revised sheet/cover. Originally it was a "no" but the new answer is "yes" (sort of). There will be loadout info included for all the 1986 aircraft thanks to Jim Rotramel's research.
  13. Ya I'm sure they'll be available at Hannants, usually within a few weeks after release. I don't have the Italeri kit but there's nothing really that is kit size critical with the VA-55 scheme. No
  14. New 1/48 sheet 48-016 covers 26th MEU HMM-264 (Rein) from USS Bataan 2006-07. This is a slightly different release for AOA in multiple ways: there are multiple subjects on single release, in this case the AV-8B Night Attack, AV-8B Plus, CH-46E, & CH-53E. Sheet only includes the specific unique markings for each scheme, so kit decals will need to be used for the common markings. Also instructions will consist entirely of the actual photos, no illustrated profiles. Enough decals are provided to do all seven aircraft with the exception of short of one set of MARINES for the third CH-46 and the second CH-53. $15 - now available more info at www.AOAdecals.com
  15. Three new recently announced decals sheets by AOA for Intruders, Harriers, Sea Knights, and Sea Stallions: In 1/48, sheet 48-016 covers 26th MEU HMM-264 (Rein) from USS Bataan 2006-07. This is a slightly different release for AOA in multiple ways: there are multiple subjects on single release, in this case the AV-8B Night Attack, AV-8B Plus, CH-46E, & CH-53E. Sheet only includes the specific unique markings for each scheme, so kit decals will need to be used for the common markings. Also instructions will consist entirely of the actual photos, no illustrated profiles. In 1/72, finally two packed low-viz A-6E Intruder sheets: First one is long-delayed sheet 72-002 covering the three squadrons involved in the 1986 Libya strikes (VA-34, VA-55, VA-85) as well as two Desert Storm squadrons (VA-35 and VMA(AW)-533). Second is sheet 72-010 covering VA-65 Tigers and VA-75 Sunday Punchers, primarily in Desert Storm but also one each from the 1980s. $15 each - now in stock (May) more info at www.AOAdecals.com
