1⁄48On the Prowl
historyThe Northrop Grumman (formerly Grumman) EA-6B Prowler is a twin-engine, mid-wing electronic warfare aircraft derived from the basic A-6 Intruder airframe. The EA-6B has been in service with the U.S. Armed Forces from 1971 through the present, during which it has carried out numerous missions for jamming enemy radar systems, and in gathering radio intelligence on those and other enemy air defense systems. In addition, the EA-6B is capable of carrying and firing anti-radiation missiles (ARM), such as the HARM missile. The aircrew of the EA-6B consists of one pilot and three Electronic Countermeasures Officers, though it is not uncommon for only 2 ECMOs to be used on missions.

the modelThis is the Kinetic 1/48 kit basically from the box with steel beach intake covers and Aires seats. The canopies are tinted with yellow dye, the type used to dye resin when poured. It tinted fine, nice and clear but will wipe off with some effort. Luckily it's on the inside. The squadron markings are painted while the remainder of the markings are from my spares.
