AirStrike 700
1/700 S2F Tracker
The S2F Tracker was the mainstay of the Anti Submarine forces operating aboard carriers in the 50-60's, and if you are building a post war essex class carrier, you are going to need a few of these. Though there are many WW2 and modern era aircraft sets available, this important aircraft has been overlooked in 700 scale. Not by White Ensign Models though, they currently offer this aircraft and more in their Airstrike 700 line. The line is still expanding and give the modeler and infinite choice of subjects in which to model.
The set comes with three of the aircraft as shown, nicely molded they look very much like the 1/72 scale model I have of this aircraft, lacking only the bulged out side windows of the cockpit. The modeler can simulate those by a couple of well place drops of superglue. There was very little flash, and the wings are very thin, giving them a nice scale appearance. The main weakness of the set is the lack of any printed reference material, and decals. Since there is really nothing to assemble it is hard to hold that against them. White Ensign also offers a #PE-715 photo etch set for the propellers and wheels that are not included with this set.
