I always wanted to build a set of models representing a single airframe from different times in its life.

I figured I would eventually do this with an F-4, but when I started these OV-10 projects, it became obvious that I should do it with the OV-10s. To that end, I built a single OV-10 airframe (BuNo 155483) as it appeared at two different times in its life.

  • The first model depicts the aircraft as it was delivered to the US Marines, an OV-10A. It was delivered in the early 1970's to the US Marine Light Observation Squadron VMO-2. The model reflects the markings the aircraft wore in 1975.

  • The second model depicts the aircraft as it was retired from the US Marines, an updated OV-10D+. It was retired in the early 1990's after serving with VMO-2 for its entire career. The model reflects the markings the aircraft wore in 1992.
