MENG-Model | Boeing EA-18G Growler Electronic Attack Aircraft 1:48 Model Kit

The kit faithfully restores the ALQ-99 high/low-frequency electronic jamming pod, ALQ-218(V)2 tactical receiver and electronic warfare antenna. The main pylon has a special plug-in design, which can replace the electronic cabin or the auxiliary fuel tank, and comes with AGM -88 “HARM” high-speed anti-radiation missile. Let us take a look at the specific details of the kit.
MENG’s latest product LS-014 Boeing EA-18G “Growler” Electronic Warfare Attack Aircraft is a development of their earlier F-18E &  F-18F Super Hornets released this year. After completion, the kit has a total length of 378 mm and a width of 285 mm. It includes pre-cut precision metal etching sheets, masking stickers and three marking choices included in the box.

The kit contains the ALQ-99 high/low-frequency electronic jamming pod, ALQ-218(V)2 tactical receiver, and AGM-88 “HARM” high-speed anti-radiation missile. The shape of various electronic warfare antennas & fins on the surface of the fuselage is realistic.

The folding wings can be folded up or down.

The flaps and slats can be selected in different retractable states, and the horizontal tail and rudder are positionable.
The kit accurately restores the two-seater cockpit layout and in-cabin facilities and contains two U.S. Navy pilots. The outfits are exquisitely portrayed and the characters are lifelike. There are two flight helmets to choose from.

The EA-18G Growler is the most advanced airborne electronic attack (AEA) platform and is the only one in production today. A variant of the combat-proven F/A-18F Super Hornet, the Growler provides tactical jamming and electronic protection to U.S. military forces and allies around the world.

Industry and the U.S. Navy continue to invest in advanced Growler capabilities to ensure it continues to protect all strike aircraft during high-threat missions for decades to come.

The EA-18G Growler is the U.S. Navy replacement for the EA-6B Prowler. In June 2014, Boeing was awarded a contract for 12 Growlers to be acquired by the Royal Australian Air Force under a Foreign Military Sales agreement with the U.S. Navy.
