  • EA-6A, 156991, VAQ-309, ND/610, 1982

This set provides two sets of airframe markings to replicate two examples. The sheet is printed by Cartograf and the printing is very well done. At present, the only kit of the 1/48 EA-6A is the Revell-Monogram offering which was recently reissued.

My sincere thanks to Furball Aero-Design for this review sample!
