Hello! One of my many Tamiya Tomcats will be carrying a TARPS pod. When flying recce, the F-14 frequently carried the ALQ-167 "Bullwinkle" pod, as well as the Expanded Chaff Adapter [ECA], which allowed the aircraft to carry more chaff and flare cartridges and was fitted into one of the Phoenix rails. So here are my questions: Does anyone know where a decent photo of the ECA would be? Google gives me some low-res drawings and a few views of the underside of the Tomcat in flight, but nothing good enough to go by when converting a bomb rack to an ECA. I'm trying to determine when the ALQ-167/ECA kit came into use in the fleet. It is likely that my TARPS bird will be from the mid-80's, so I may not need the extra kit anyway. Thanks for any and all help!
