Grumman C-1A Trader 1/72
September 27, 2016 in Aviation
This is Hasegawa’s S-2 Tracker converted to a C-1A Trader COD[ carrier onboard delivery]. I left out all the sonar gear, plugged sonar buoy holes in the back of the nacelles and kit bashed the decals, making it of course the one assigned to the USS Saratoga back in the seventies. I actually made one of two fixed wing carrier landings as a passenger in this one. As I remember the seats faced the aft of the aircraft. before the flight the aircrew issued you a pair of ear protectors and a waist mounted inflatable life vest.. just in case.
