US Navy Carrier Air Wings from Operation Enduring Freedom

Kits & Decals
in 1/48 Scale

by Dave Roof


HyperScale is proudly supported by Squadron




Over the last few weeks, I have been putting together a list of decals and kits that will allow anyone to build the US Navy’s Carrier Air Wings (CVW) that were active and/or participated in Operation Enduring Freedom. These CWVs are accurate as of August 2001.  



Operation Enduring Freedom Kits in 1/48


The following is for 1/48 scale. Because there are no main stream kits of the E-2C, C-2A, and SH-60/HH-60, I have left them off of the list except to mention kits that are, were, or will be available. 

F-14A: Hasegawa, Revell-Monogram, Academy, Italeri

F-14B: Hasegawa, Italeri

F-14D: Hasegawa, Revell-Monogram 

F/A-18A: Hasegawa, Revell-Monogram

F/A-18C: Hasegawa, Revell-Monogram

F/A-18E: Italeri, Revell-Monogram (due in the fall of 2003) 

EA-6B: Airfix, Revell-Monogram (Due to be re-released in the fall of 2003) 

S-3B: AMT/ESCI/Italeri (All the same kit, different boxes and decals) 

SH-60F: Cobra Company multi-media kit (Discontinued) 

HH-60H: No known kit in 1/48 scale 

E-2C: Collect Aire just released a 1/48 multi-media kit of the Hummer  

C-2A: No known kit in 1/48 scale 

*Note: Italeri has announced a SH-60B in 1/48 scale. This should prove to be a good starting point for the SH-60F and/or the HH-60H 



Operation Enduring Freedom Decals in 1/48


Only Decal sheets with current markings (1999 and later) of the listed squadrons are provided. Some sheets may not exactly represent the respective squadron on this specific cruise, but they will get you real close. 

**This list may not be 100% accurate. This is what I have come up with in my research. If you know of something that is in error, please contact me so I can make the necessary corrections.
