1/48 Kinetic EA-6B with black box cockpit
Thought I’d get my feet wet and submit my first article! This is the kinetic EA-6B. I used the black box resin cockpit that is designed for the old monogram kit. Yes I know, not a good idea but I had it on hand and it seemed a good choice at the time. In retrospect the kit cockpit with careful painting would look great.
The HARM’s are from the hasegawa weapons set. Decals are of VAQ-137 from the 1st gulf war.
The kit itself is excellent. I don’t recall any assembly issues. Certainly way better than the old monogram offering.
The base is pine wood with routed edges. I spray painted the carrier deck markings. The patches are from my time with “the rooks”.
Hope you enjoy the pictures!
