1/72 1102 Hasegawa Grumman S2F-1 (S-2A) Tracker Hi-Vis Paint Scheme
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good
1970s Hi-Vis issue. Nicely detailed for that time and never started. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts, 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.
