The General Dynamics–Grumman EF-111A Raven is an electronic-warfare aircraft designed to replace the B-66 Destroyer in the United States Air Force. Its crews and maintainers often called it the "Spark-Vark", a play on the F-111's "Aardvark" nickname.
The USAF contracted with Grumman in 1974 to convert some existing General Dynamics F-111As into electronic warfare/electronic countermeasures (ECM) aircraft. The USAF had considered the Navy / Marine Corps Grumman EA-6B Prowler, but desired a penetrating aircraft with supersonic speed.
The EF-111 entered service in 1983 and served until its retirement in 1998. Afterwards, the Air Force began depending on Navy and Marine Corps EA-6Bs for electronic warfare support
This highly detailed Hobby Master model represents an EF-111A (Bureau Number 66-0030) from the 390th Electronic Combat Squadron “Wild Boars”, 48h Tactical Fighter Wing (Provisional) during Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm.
As with most Hobby Master models, this EF-111A features engraved panel lines, antennas, surface details and authentic squadron markings. The canopy opens and reveals a well-appointed cockpit (with instrumentation details). The model also comes with a full weapons complement, optional-position landing gear and a display stand.
Great care should be taken when handling this model. This is a great addition to your diecast aircraft collection.
