1/48 Trumpeter ERA-3B of VAQ-33

This build was Trumpeter’s 1/48 ERA-3B of VAQ-33. This was built for a Chief Petty Officer who was part of the air crew. The Douglas A-3 Skywarrior was originally built as a jet bomber in the 1950’s. It evolved into a few variants. The KA-3 was used as a refueling craft. The ERA-3B was an ELINT (Electronic Intelligence) role used in Viet Nam and for many years during the Cold War. It performed briefly during the Gulf War then was finally retired in September 1991. I used Eduards photo etch set to detail the aircraft.
