Default Five Kinetic 1/48 EA-6B Prowlers for VMAQ-2

Built five Kinetic Prowlers over the course of six days with the help of my good friend and fellow modeler John Colvin. John helped with fuel tanks, ALQ pods and other sub assemblies on a couple of them. Without his help, I wouldn't have been able to meet the deadline to get them to Cherry Point on time.

The models were built for the Commanding Officer, Executive Officer, AMO, OpsO and squadron SgtMaj and presented to them a day before the deactivation of VMAQ-2 and the sundown for the EA-6B on the 8th.

Raymond Chung of Lucky Models/Kinetic donated the kits to the project. All of the tail markings were drawn in Corel, then cut in red and white vinyl using my Cameo Silhouette.

Just the tip of the iceberg! I now have 16 more Prowlers, 8 F/A-18's, 3 A-6E Intruders, a CH-53E, CH-46D and 6 AV-8B's lined up for other Marines.

The last CO's of VMAQ's 1 and 4, the CO of MCAS Kaneohe and the CG of 3rd MAW are on the list.
