AOA Decals | 32-020: DOGS OF WAR (2) US Army/USMC/VNAF O-1 Bird Dogs in the Vietnam War
Reviewed by LSP_Paul
This is Part 2 of Bird Dogs in the Vietnam War, a great follow on from Part 1 for the Roden Bird Dog kit from AOA Decals.
Let's take a look!
What’s in the Package
Part two of the 1/32 Bird Dog coverage, this decal sheet includes thirteen marking options for various O-1 A/G/E Bird Dogs from the Vietnam War:
- Three US Army schemes - 199th Swamp Fox (two schemes) and 219th Headhunters Reconnaissance Aviation/Airplane Companies (RAC)
- Two US Marine Corps schemes - VMO-6 (two similar schemes, only one shown in cover image)
- Eight South Vietnam Air Force (VNAF) options - 110th and 112th Observation Squadrons
- Data/stencil set provided for one aircraft with variations of certain markings
The decals are printed by Cartograf, are thin, very sharply detailed, the tiny stencils are legible under magnification. The colors are opaque and well defined. The carrier film is so minimal you have to look for it on the backing sheet, really nicely done.
AOA has created another unique decal sheet for a very colorful and historically significant aircraft. If you are looking for O1 Bird Dog markings and want something that stands out and doesn’t look like every other model you might see at a contest, I would highly recommend these decals.
Thank you to AOA Decals for the review sample.
