One more nice sheet for the Trumpeter 1/48 Vigilante. Two more aircraft in light gull grey and white for this one. Again, insignia and data markings for one aircraft.

First up is the RVAH-19 aircraft with the green tail stripe. It is stated as being on the USS Nimitz, but the aircraft is carrying the shore based codes and not those assigned to the aircraft when it is with the air wing (which in this case would have been AJ).

The second is the nice checkertailed RVAH-11 aircraft from the USS Constellation during the 1972 Vietnam cruise.

A couple of fine choices for your next Trumpeter Viggie.
