AOA Decals in 1/172 for AC-119G Shadow & AC-119K Stinger in Vietnam - 72-006
This 1/172 decal sheet includes marking options for AC-119G Shadow and AC-119K Stinger gunships in the Vietnam War as operated by the United States Air Force (USAF) and the South Vietnam Air Force (VNAF). Although the AC-119G Shadow variant is not available in kit form, the Shadow can be easily represented by relatively basic modifications to the Roden AC-119K Stinger kit.
Optional markings included:
Marking Options Included:
Six USAF AC-119G Shadows covering 71st Special Operations Squadron (SOS) and 17th SOS:
The Devil's Advocate, City of Columbus Indiana, The Charlotte Representative, Burks Law, and two Charlie Chasers marked aircraft (all options provided also carried a variation of the Shadow III insignia).
Six USAF AC-119K Stingers covering 18th SOS:
Montezuma's Revenge, Fly United, Good Grief! The Pea-nut Special, The Super Sow, The Polish Cannon, and Black Killer Duck.
Two VNAF AC-119G Shadows covering 819th Attack Squadron.
NOTE: No specific VNAF AC-119K Stingers from 821st Attack Squadron are provided. However, other than the addition of the the Vietnamese fin flash on the tail, the VNAF Stingers did not appear to have any other unique markings after inheriting the aircraft from 18th SOS. All of the USAF AC-119K aircraft on this sheet were transferred to the VNAF in 1972/73 (minus the nose art), and as such, the Vietnamese fin flashes provided could be used with the AC-119K tail codes to represent a VNAF AC-119K Stinger if desired.
