In the spring of 2012 USN VAQ-141 ‘Shadowhawks’ transferred from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Washington to NAF Atsugi, Japan and assigned to the USS George Washington. In 2015 VAQ-141 crossed decks to the USS Ronald Reagan and in 2017 spent three months deployed in the Indo-Asia Pacific region. When the unit returned on November 28th VAQ-141 relocated to MCAS Iwakuni. One of the VAQ-141 EA-18G Growlers was 168893 c/n G-91 that originally had been assigned to VAQ-129 “Vikings” as NJ-543.

To replace their aging EA-6B Prowlers, the United States Navy acquired a specialized variant of the F/A-18 Super Hornet, the EA-18G Growler. The Growler is an advanced airborne electronic attack aircraft capable of tactical jamming and electronic protection. The Growler was first flown in August 2006 with the first production aircraft being delivered to VAQ-129 in June 2008. After operational capability testing, full production of the EA-18G Growler began in late 2009. In 2010 VAQ-132, 138 and 141 were re-equipped with the Growler.


Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.
