1/48 - Boeing EA-18G Growler by Meng - box art+3D renders


Recommended Posts

Looking at the CAD images I suspect Meng have made the same mistake as Hobby Boss by using the same front fuselage halves as their other F/A-18s with the gun grills forward of the landing gear. Hopefully I am wrong otherwise filling will be required.

Hard to tell from the CAD or box art really. The nose has the blister just aft of the nose cone on the sides which is unique to the Growler version, so it may be a different nose section.

What is does have over the HB kit, for example:

-includes Aero-5 launch adapter for Harm Missiles

-includes low band ALQ-99 pod

-the wingtip pods are mounted correctly (forward mount on wings)

-the wingtip pods include the vents/scoops between the pod fins

 

Looks to be an accurate out of box build, but actual plastic will tell the full story.
