This is a 1/48 Kinetic EA-6B Prowler built out of the box using Superscale decals to represent a VAQ-141 Shadowhawks Prowler as attached to CVW-8.

This model was built for the Desert Storm Group Build. One nice thing about the carrier group I build is during DS most of the deployed squadrons had one airframe painted with nose art. Adds some much needed colour.

Not sure which I like better, Kinetic or the old school Revell Monogram version of this kit.  They each have advantages and errors. The one REALLY nice thing about Kinetic is the out of the box wingfold option.  Saves room on the shelf and saves the money otherwise spent on the near impossible to find Paragon wingfold set.
