Yes I thought of that, and a tandem two-seater based on the Prowler

Here are a few Navy Birds serving with the USAF in a What if world.

So, graft in a TA-7C or TA-4J cockpit section into the Intruder eh?    Given that one is thirty bux and the other about eight, I'll go with the TA-4J as a recommendation.

I'd prefer a T-2 rather than a TA-4, I think.  The cockpit looks closer to that of this machine than the TA-4.

Hey nice one Rickshaw - damn that looks good: really transforms the old tadpole doesn't it? :wub:

A few pictures showing a A-6 carrying and launching a Tomahawk cruise missile can be found at the San Diego Air & Space Museum on Flickr.

I can't tell, if the Tomahawk is an early AGM-109A or AGM-109C/H/I/J/K/L prototype later on the MRASM (Medium-Range Air-to-Surface Missile) program. The MRASM effort was cancelled in 1984.

Are there any readily available line drawings of proposed Intruders that never made production status?     
TIA,

Looks good Steve.
I've got an RAN FAA Intruder on my to do list.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

The balancing load-out on the port wing matches a photo in "World's Rockets & Missiles" pg 142 of the initial release trials at the PMR in March or June 1976, so that would make it a '109A
