AD-6 of VA-165, USS Oriskany, 1962
This was built from the Tamiya kit using AeroMaster decals. Aside from the decals I built this out of the box. I have no idea of who the pilot was or any further history of the airplane. I just liked the scheme. I left it rather clean as I have used this image on my card and my WEB-site. I remember the AD’s from my time on BHR in 1957 and have always liked this a/c.
I have the 1/32 Zoukeimura under construction right now and I feel like I am building the real airplane. Lots of the stuff inside will never be seen again.
