The AN/ALQ-184 electronic countermeasures pod is used by the US Air Force and the Air National Guard on tactical aircraft including the F-16 and the A-10.  The pod is a self-protection jammer and is available in either two or three band versions. 

This set depicts the shorter version of the ALQ-184, so presumably it is the two band version and it is often seen on the centerline pylon of USAF F-16s or an outer wing pylon of the A-10.  The set is very straightforward consisting of simply of resin cast pod.  The casting is outstanding and includes several small antennas on the nose of the pod.   I used a sharp razor saw to remove the pod itself from the pour stub as well and then cleaned up the stub attachment points with a fine sanding stick.
