Default Two New 1/48 A-6 Intruder Decals - Vietnam Pt.2 & Libya/Iraq

With the 1/48 T-28 sheet coming shortly after the 1/32 one, I decided to continue scaling down the other current 1/32 sheets to the smaller scales.
The first two completed will be 1/48 and cover the two other A-6 Intruder sheets, they will cover the same subjects that were on the 1/32 sheets.
Plan next is 1/72 or scale down the A-4 Skyhawk sheets.

Prices are TBD.
Printed by Cartograf.


48-006
Intruders from the Sea - USN/USMC A-6A/A-6B/KA-6D Intruders in the Vietnam War

Covers 16 aircraft, including two A-6B Mod 0 Iron Hands and two KA-6D tankers. Three CAG schemes are also covered - including the "patience my ass" vulture marked VMA-224 CAG scheme. Many of the schemes covered can be modeled using the single release, although stencils are provided for one full airframe (more can be purchased separately).

VMA(AW)-224 Bengals - last of the four USMC A-6 squadrons in Vietnam (the three land based USMC squadrons were covered in the first AOA release):
USS Coral Sea 1971-72 (5 options - 3x A-6A including CAG scheme, 1x A-6B, & 1x KA-6D)

VA-95 Green Lizards - deployed in 1973, supporting Operation End Sweep (mining clean up) along North Vietnam and had some rather large squadron markings:
USS Coral Sea 1973 (2 options - 2x A-6A, including CAG scheme)

VA-165 Boomers - four out of five of their combat cruises covered (final cruise in 72-73 isn't covered, but it resembled scheme used in 71-72):
USS Ranger 1967-68 (1 option - A-6A)
USS Ranger 1968-69 (1 option - A-6A)
USS America 1970 (1 option - A-6A)
USS Constellation 1971-72 (1 option - A-6A CAG scheme)

VA-196 Main Battery - four out of five of their combat cruises covered (first cruise in 67-68 isn't covered, but it resembled scheme used in their second cruise):
USS Constellation 1968-69 (1 option - A-6A)
USS Ranger 1969-70 (1 option - A-6A)
USS Enterprise 1971-72 (2 options - 1x A-6A & x1 A-6B)
USS Enterprise 1972-73 (1 option - KA-6D)

48-007
The Intruders' Sandbox - USN/USMC A-6E Intruders in Libyan Strikes & Desert Storm

Relatively smallish sheet covering 5 squadrons but options for 7 aircraft. One from all three of the squadrons from the 1986 Libya strikes (VA-34, -55, & -85) and also two squadron from Desert Storm (VA-35 & VMA(AW)-533). The DS ones there are two aircraft options for each, the alternate ones are aircraft with the early unused perforated brakes to allow some options for swapping parts between the A and E kits.

Outstanding ! I'm definitely in for the "Intruders from the Sea" sheet. I've wanted to do Vulture One for a long while. Let us know when they're available and how much.
Thanks,
Tom

Haven't done the exact cost yet but the A-6A sheet will be in the low $20s (it's large, heavy, and lots of color - though it may not look it). The A-6E sheet will be $20 max.

I'm guessing they'll be ready in about a month or so. Never know though, the last sheet I sent to Cartograf (OH-6A) came back really fast, like around only two weeks, so maybe these will be the same. The instructions are already at the printers too so the sheets will be ready to go immediately once I get them in.
