Iliad Designs 48019: Special Ops Skyraiders

Units: See review




Scott Van Aken

This is another reprint of an earlier sheet from Iliad Designs. It incorporates some updated information that has come to light since the initial release. There are six different options provided on the sheet.

Four options are USAF planes while the other two are SVNAF offerings. No specific kit is recommended, but I'm pretty sure most will head towards the Tamiya one as it seems to be one most will choose. All the USAF versions are in the standard SEA camouflage scheme while the SVNAF ones have schemes that are locally applied so a bit different.

First up with the TC tail code is a plane from the 1st SOS at Nakhon Phanom, Thailand.

Next is an 83rd SOG plane at Ton Son Nhut. This is in a tan and reddish brown scheme.

The colorful fin is on a 6 SOS plane out of Da Nang.

Fourth is another 83rd SOG plane with a dark green and earth camouflage scheme.

THe last two are both with the 22nd SOS at Nakhon Phanom with one having a black underside and the other sporting a shark mouth.

The sheet itself is superbly printed as are all Iliad Design offerings. If you missed it the first time around, you now have the opportunity to snag your own copy.
