Description

 

Here is my 1/48 scale Kinetic E-2C Hawkeye.

Other than intake and exhaust covers, this shows the kit as built straight from the box. Minor fit issues around the nacelles were encountered, but for the most part the kit, although somewhat complicated went together well.

All paints were Testor's ModelMaster, and the decals used were from Bingo Decals.

The model represents the Black Tailed CAG Bird from VAW 113 based on the USS Abraham Lincoln in 2001. The deck crew and equipment are from Skunk Models and the base is from Plane Stuff.

 

 

Be aware that by the time one puts enough weight in the forward areas (kit instructions call for 90 grams, but with the wings folded, it took near double that), it’s as heavy as a small dumbbell! To further complicate things, as everything is added to complete, it becomes increasingly more difficult to pick up without breaking something off.

Nonetheless, it’s a welcome addition to never before offered aircraft in this scale.

With this one, prior modeling experience is helpful.
