A-6 Intruder

Book Review: A-6 Intruder Walk-Around by Lou Drendel. For nearly thirty years, Grumman's A-6 was the "main battery" of the carrier air wings, with the ability to conduct strikes at long ranges and in all weather condition. This 80-page softcover provides all the in-depth photo detail needed to build an A-6E model, with dozens on close in shots of the airframe, avionics bays, tailhook, engines, and cockpit.

A-6E for Flight Simulator:  An interesting "virtual walk around" of the A-6E by Alphasim for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
