"Wonderful Kit"
DylMcDaniel
Hasegawa's Growler is an amazing kit, and I had a lot of fun building it. The panel lines and rivets are finely recessed, which is great. Kit includes 4 fuel tanks, 2 aim 9x 2 Aim 120, 1 low band jamming pod, 3 high band jamming pods and a pair of wing tip detection pods. It comes with a large decal sheet with markings for two planes. The forward fuselage is a little fiddley and hard to get perfectly right. It may need a little filler, really depends on the modelers skill set. If you don't want to spend a large amount of money on a kit this is the way to go.

I have never built the Growler before. Lets get started.

Information

The EA-18G Growler is the latest evolution of the popular F/A-18F Super Hornet, designed especially for electronic warfare. The U.S. Navy's VAQ-129 electronic attack squadron was the first to receive the Growler in 2008. The following year, VAQ-129 and VAQ-132 executed the Growler's first carrier-assisted landing at sea aboard the U.S.S. Harry S. Truman (CVN-75).
