Rodenís new 1/48 OV-1 Mohawk kit was barely on the shelves when Two Bobs released this sheet specifically for it. You get two options on this sheet and they are as follows:

  1. Grumman OV-1A Mohawk, s/n 60-3740, Fort Rucker, Alabama, 1984

  2. Grumman OV-1A Mohawk, s/n 61-2709, 23rd Special Warfare Aviation Detachment, Vietnam, 1963

Both aircraft are in the typical FS 34087 overall with FS36163 grey walkways on the fuselage top. The majority of the main markings, other than the stars and bars are in yellow on both aircraft. Two Bobs even provides the stencils as direct replacements of the Roden decals but carried the same numbers so you can use the kit instructions for stencil placement.

My sheet is in perfect register and has very little carrier film around any of the decals. The instructions are in the usual full color format we are accustomed to with Two Bobs. The instructions also have some pretty cool photos of a real Mohawk that the New Jersey Aviation Hall of Fame is restoring.

All in all another very cool and timely release from Two Bobs. A must have sheet for those of you with the new Roden kit. This sheet and any other Two Bobs sheets can be ordered direct from Bob Sanchez at http://www.TwoBobs.net

Recommended.

Thanks to Bob Sanchez at Two Bobs for the review sample.
