Default In Stock - 1/32 A-4E/A-4F Skyhawks (Vietnam)

Vietnam A-4’s were supposed to be the second AOA release after the initial USMC A-6A sheet about a year ago but they got pushed back for various reasons. They are up for release finally (in 1/32) - estimated to be available in January.

Rather than one extra-large release again (like the last A-6A sheet…) this time they’ve been broken down to somewhat smaller sizes:

Part 1 (32-010)10 schemes (also will include stencil sheet 32-012)
VMA-223 Bulldogs – 5 schemes covering 1966-69 from Chu Lai
VA-94 Mighty Shrikes – 4 schemes, 3 cruises (Bon Homme Richard 1968, 1969, and 1970 - replacement for the very inaccurate “BOBBIE” CAG jet)
VA-106 Gladiators – 1 scheme (Intrepid 1968-69)

Part 2 (32-011)
9 schemes (also will include stencil sheet 32-012)
VMA-311 Tomcats – 4 schemes covering 1966-70 from Chu Lai
VA-144 Roadrunners – 2 schemes, 2 cruises (Kitty Hawk 1967-68, and Bon Homme Richard 1969)
VA-155 Silver Foxes – 3 schemes, 2 cruises (Coral Sea 1964-65, Ranger 1968-69)


Stencil sheet will also be available for individual sale in limited number.

Profiles now posted (Dec 6)

And yes, the intention is to release in smaller scale at later date.

The sheets are at the printers (Cartograf again) and I already received the instructions and already packed in the zip locks, just waiting for the decal sheets to put in - I suspect it will be late January the earliest to get them from Cartograf. I'm not sure how they handle the holidays, that may also push it back some.

I need to crunch the numbers officially but initial estimate is around $22 for each of the main releases.

Steve,

Just as you did with the USMC A-6A Intruders From the Beach, you have really outdone yourself with the #32010 & #32011 Vietnam Skyhawks decals. These are quite possibly the finest decals I've ever gotten my paws on. Thank you for providing such fine decal marking options for us.

Semper Fi,
Masterguns
