"Big and Heavy A-3D2 Skywarrior, nice kit overall"
Ed H. (Byron, GA)
Nice kit, and BIG!!! Can be built in a variety of options (bomb-bay, crew ladder, speed brakes, flaps slats open or closed, wings and tail folded or unfolded). The interior is nicely detailed however the cockpit console has some fit issues that need to be trimmed before fit.

"Deployed Whale"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
I have yet to build this kit and it is definitely on my list! I served aboard the USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) while one of these aircraft was deployed to the ship. I cannot say what the role was of the aircraft but the immense size for a carrier-borne aircraft was impressive and it was always an eye-catcher! From the photos of the built model I can assure the consumer that this is one great kit. Once again on my list as I have always wanted a 1/48th scale model of the plane. Building an EA version model would not take much as these aircraft were all modified into the electronic version and reference photos do exist. The highly classified- role aircraft was depicted in the USAF version in the movie BAT21 with Gene Hackman and Danny Glover. The true identity of the interior of any version is still a highly guarded secret!
