1/144 E-2B Hawkeye VAW-116 Sun Kings 1976

Kit: Revell of Germany 04012 E-2C Hawkeye
Decal: Starfighter Decals 144-107 VAW116 Sun Kings 1975-1976

Here is my fourth Revell E-2 Hawkeye in the same old palm-size scale.

This time I try to backdate it to the E-2B standard:
1. Replaced the nose cut from a F-Toys S-2A Tracker.
2. Sand away several fairings that are not existed in E-2B.
3. Reshaped the air scoop on top and on the right side of the fuselage.
4. Reshaped the propellers.

For weapons, I scratch builded the ALE-41 Chaff Dispenser Pods from a pair of SUU-23A Gun Pod, used fuel tanks from Cafe Reo's EA-6B and the ALQ-99 Jamming Pods from the EA-18G kit by Dragon.

Decal: Vector 144 Convair F-102 Delta Dagger - camouflaged

During the research phase on the C-140 build, I also realize that F-102 intercepters are always flying MIGCAP mission with the unarmed Jetstar, I then decided to build a Delta Dagger after the Jetstar is done.

The "deuce" from ARII is a former Ootaki moulding which is showing its age during the build, on the detail up I just put in a cockpit steal from the Cafe Reo F-5A kit, added the IR device in front of the canopy and let the rest as is.
