    Welcome back! WiP with painting. Chrome yellow by Testors enamel on firewall. Weathering later of course. Antennas on back as well as antireflection area were paint by air brush too... The nicest part of the work were taken by decaling... On web I found a lot of pictures of this O-1E at Lai Khe (Vietnam), 1966. I suppose AOA Decals found the same pictures too... Alex
