"model airplane kit"
JIMMY_JAMZ615 (Nashville TN)
Great service and liable.shipped on time and packaged well. Thank you

 
"Nice small scale model"
skydog (Arizona)
Nice kit of the OV-10. Good fit overall, canopy takes some fiddling. I ended up making thin decal stripes for the canopy frames, since I've not had good luck recently with masking methods and I'm not steady enough to hand-paint them. A good addition to any Vietnam collection.

 
"Marine Corps Varient"

I thought this was a quite detailed model and I was pleased it came with the decals for the Marine Corps model which I parachuted from. My only beef was the canopy came in 4 parts instead of one piece which made it difficult for my old fat fingers to build it cleanly.

Information

More recent versions of the aircraft have also been used in the forward air controller (FAC) directing other aircraft.
