This beauty of a model plane is of the E 8D Joint STARS aircraft manufactured by Northrup Grumman Aerospace Corporation. The E-8 J-STARS, aka Surveillance Target Attack Radar Systems, provides battle management surveillance to the air theater commanders. In operation since 1991, 17 units of the E-8 airplane have been produced.
The Grumman E-8D model is crafted from pressure cast composite resin, and is a striking aviation gift with its impressive looks. This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced using exact blueprint specifications. Each model is meticulously hand painted giving the aircraft a deep, rich finish. The result is a museum quality sculpture to be admired, and proudly put on display. A handsome display base is included.
