1/72 102 Hasegawa Grumman S2F-1 (S-2A) Tracker - Hi-Vis Paint Scheme
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
Well molded and likely from the late 1970s or early 1980s. Has markings for US Navy VS-21 and JSDF. Features cockpit detail, retractable radome, optional position landing gear and rotating props. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes 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.
