Superscale 320265: A-6A Intruder
Units: VA-115 'Arabs'


$16.00 SRP


Scott Van Aken

For their next big scale Intruder sheet, Superscale has chosen an aircraft from VA-115 'Arabs'. This unit was based on the USS Midway during May of 1973. I was stationed at Atsugi Japan in the early/mid 1970s and would see this and other aircraft of the unit when I went into work every day. The aircraft itself was the usual light gull grey over white with a tan radome. On this one, the anti-glare panel is listed as dark gull grey. Not usual, but not unusual either. For additional painting, the modeler will  need to paint the fin black and the tip of it and the fuel tanks with green.

The sheet instructions show where everything goes. The sheet includes some data markings and unique markings. Other stencils will need to come from the kit. As usual with new Superscale sheets, the decals are superbly done by Cartograf so will work with all your setting solutions.
