  1. The specially painted 15k ton total USS Coral Sea bomb
  2. Here's the photo referenced: Not the only one of course with the painted eggs but that's probably the most posted pic for 242. VMA(AW)-225 also had special Easter painted Mk.83 examples in at least 1971.
  3. The A-6A could carry the Shrike, the AGM-78 Standard ARM was carried by the specialized A-6B (offhand it was only around 20 or so 19 A-6As that were converted to B's).
  4. Most common were the Mk.80 series (Mk.81, 82, 83, 84), either slicks or snakeyes. But Vietnam A-6s pretty much carried also everything possible (more so the Marines). Not limited to this list, but among those used: M65, M66, M117, Mk.36, 2.75" rocket pods, LAU-10 Zuni rocket pods, Mk.77, Mk.79, CBU-24, CBU-29, Mk.20 Rockeye, AGM-12 Bullpup, AGM-45 Shrike, AGM-78 Stanadard ARM, AIM-9 Sidewinder, and as mentioned already the Mk.52. If you're looking for authenic/accurate loads, you'll have to pick a particular time during the war or squadron in some cases. For example, earlier period
  5. So not from Cool Hand Luke? (kidding) Thanks for the order, it's in the mail
  6. That footage is from 65/66 and with those two F-4 squadrons along with the USAF aircraft and helos in the background I would've thought Da Nang, although there is some early Chu Lai footage in there too.
  7. I've been playing catchup on all the newer navalized KH H-60 releases. A USCG H-60 was really the one I was most looking for. But reading earlier posts in this thread, I read it as no MH-60T kit is coming. That is unfortunate, hope someone (Floyd) releases a conversion set at least so we don't have to kitbash and scratch build.
  8. It's been years and out of stock for some time, but this sheet covering a certain 1991 movie's Intruder aircraft is available again by direct order only - less than 10 sheets available. While re-organizing stock I found I still had some spare sheets in reserve of what I thought was completely sold out. There is however no printed instruction sheet included for these last ones but a new image has been added to the website for the placement guide.
  9. The 1/48 O-2 Skymaster sheet is now in stock and available to order at www.aoadecals.com
  10. All the OV-10 sheets were going to be released in 1/48 in conjunction with the new HazMat kit. Unfortunately that kit disappeared at the last minute. I had hopes someone else had picked up the project, and still have hopes...
  11. We talking small scale I imagine? AMS has them in 1/32: https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/64079-ams-resin-ov-10g/
  12. The previously released 1/32 AOA decals release covering the Skymaster in the Vietnam War will now be available in 1/48 for the new ICM kit. One of the plainer options from the 1/32 sheet was replaced with a more interesting option of an earlier scheme of an aircraft that was already on the sheet (414). Sheet also includes three O-2B options in the SEA camo, although to date no kit/conversion is available (that I'm aware of). One of the three has the spinners installed, which thankfully are at least in the kit but aren't used/identified. now available (Sept) $15 w/free US ship
  13. The HMM-264 numbers on their CH-46s are different style than the 162 ones.
  14. Thanks for purchasing. I try to get orders out no later than next day.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Now in stock and available to purchase at www.AOAdecals.com
  18. These three sheets are now in stock and available to purchase at www.AOAdecals.com
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. Interesting, with Weber the CO that would've placed it before late June 86 when Chewning became CO.
  22. 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 i
  23. Originally expected later this month but should be first half of April instead.
