1/72 K1 Hasegawa Grumman S2F-1 (S-2A) Tracker with Falcon E-1B Tracer Conversion Kit
Exc+ Injection Molded new
This includes the Falcon E-1B Tracer conversion kit. This is a high quality vac conversion that is finely molded with recessed and raised details. Many of the parts have been correctly and expertly cut out, which will save much time. The conversion kit is complete and other than the cutting has not been started. The Hasegawa model is a very well molded kit. It includes markings for US Navy VS-21 and JSDF. Kit features cockpit detail, retractable radome, optional position landing gear and rotating props. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including decals and instructions. Over 1000 Trackers were completed for the Navy as carrier-based submarine hunters. Grumman was awarded the contract in 1950, and in 1952 the first XS2F-1 flew. The large belly radome contained the PAS-38 search radar and the AWQ-10 MAD detector was in the tail. ALD-3 ECM performed DF (direction finding) duties, and the 70 million candle power spotlight lit up targets at night. Sonobuoys were held in both engine nacelles and offensive weapons included acoustic torpedoes, depth charges, rockets and conventional bombs. Trackers saw service in several other Navies including Canada.
