I think Mike from Sierra Hotel is planning one this year; it's been some time, but he who comes first now probably reaps the benefits...so, Paul, your call.

Now....I have been known to have a drink or two and get a crazy idea.

 

I admit it.

 

But a Prowler?Holy Horse Exhaust...That would be a serious bit of work.

 

Form what I recall, there's more to it than just a forward fuselage. Hmmmnnn......

Prowler as well. The Intruder does nothing for me. But the Prowler would be a must have.

It would take a new front fuselage similar to what you did with the RF-8, a "football" for the vertical fin, new inner wing leading edge and of course the complete 4 place cockpit and canopies. I'm sure there's other little bits and pieces as well. Harold already did the under wing pods I believe so that would be a big help. But, just think of the marking options! Let's just get the AD-5 Marine Fat Face out first! HA!

Yeah...I was up half the night looking at all my books...It would be a big job to do it right.Not saying it can';t be done, but I have things I must finish before I could attack a job like this.I would need some serious help from my friend Timmy! ,The CAD wizard who did the Cutlass cockpit and seat .

 

I happen to like both the Intruder and the Prowler.....A lot.

 

As the song says...."Who knows what tomorrow may bring?"

 

Bonus points for naming the band.

 

Back to the books!

You really don't have to worry about the seats as aftermarket seats will work fine. You may have to make the strengthening plates on the head box though. I'd certainly be in for the EA-6B Prowler. Someone on here had a build on using the Trump A-6 and converting.He also had the S-3A Viking
