E-2C Hawkeye 2000, VAW-117 Wallbangers, USS Nimitz (Hasegawa 1:72 #01561)


I have always liked the shape of the Hawkeye and there is something very "workhorse" about this (and its cousin the C-2 Greyhound) that appeals to my passion for "working aircraft". Hasegawa has delivered us a fantastic kit in 1/72 scale, with the only thing missing being a wingfold.

For this build I opted for the resin wingfold conversion from Wolfpack Design and scratchbuilt the crew boarding entry door and interior.
