Superscale 48-1068: A-7E Corsair II

Units: VA-46 and VA-72




Scott Van Aken

Now for a reissue of an older sheet and one that was quite popular. This sheet shows two of the A-7Es that participated in the Corsair II's last cruise, which also happened to be during Desert Storm.  The recommended kit is by Hasegawa, though those of you with the ESCI kit will find these markings will fit it as well.

First up is the VA-46 'Clansman' aircraft in the standard Tactical Paint Scheme which by this time had faded to an overall FS 36320.

The other is the specially painted CAG bird from VA-72. It is in a two brown scheme of FS 30140 and 33711 applied in a variegated scheme. To my understanding, the plane did not fly missions in this scheme but was painted after the fact.

The sheet includes insignia for both and common markings for one. A nice touch are the rear fuselage walk area decals.
