Model Airplane Factory offers you this elegant S2 Tracker model bomber airplane made by our master craftsmen. This Tracker S-2 plane bomber model has a dimension of 18" wingspan and has a 11.5" length. After passing through several stages of sanding and priming, our talented artists paint and detail the S2 Tracker model airplane bomber wooden with historically correct markings of the S2 Tracker. The S2 Tracker plane is made to recognized collector scale of 1/44 for enhanced value. After carving the wood, the S-2 Tracker bomber model airplane will undergo stages of fine sanding, between primer coats, to produce a silky smooth finish ready for final painting. The details of the Tracker S-2 such as the insignia, logos, body number, and squadron are carefully and artistically painted in the Grumman S-2 Tracker model wood for precision. The Grumman Tracker S2 wood model bomber is supplied with a mahogany base for display.

The Grumman S-2 Tracker (previously S2F) was the first purpose-built anti-submarine warfare (ASW) aircraft combining both detection and weaponry in a single airframe to enter service with the US Navy. During the early years of the Cold War, the primary threat to the superiority of the U.S. Navy was not an enemy surface fleet but the numerous Soviet submarines that regularly patrolled the world's oceans. In response to this very real threat, Grumman designed the S2F-1 in the early 1950s as the U.S. Navy's premier sub hunter. Outfitted with the latest submarine detection equipment, the S2F-1 Tracker revolutionized anti-submarine warfare (ASW). Variations of the basic S2F-1 design were developed to serve many functions including: fire bombing, target towing, photo-reconnaissance, Carrier Onboard Delivery (COD) and multi-engine proficiency training.

Also called the "Stoof" (S-Two-F), the Tracker's twin engines and crew of four allowed the plane to search hundreds of miles of ocean on each patrol, ensuring that American carrier groups could proceed without harassment from Soviet subs. The S2F carried a search radar mounted on the bottom of the fuselage in a retractable radome, a retractable magnetic anomaly detector (MAD) mounted at the base of the tail fin and air-launched sonobuoys carried in the ends of both engine nacelles. The Tracker's armament included ASW torpedoes, bombs, depth charges and rockets. It is interesting to note the unique wing folding mechanism of the Tracker, the right wing folds slightly forward while the left wing folds slightly aft. This allows the wings to remain nearly flat on top of the cabin, reducing the plane's width by nearly 40 feet.
