Some sheet styrene (in two layers even for more detail), might be fun here I think, for the landing gear doors. The thinnest sheet styrene I know of, is the 0.010 inch ones from Evergreen (sells styrene rods, sheets etc).

0.010 inch = 0.25 mm according to the package I have. On the package it is written as ".010"

I need to get some sheet styrene and play around with it. At the moment my country is still on "lockdown" and the hobby stores are all closed :(

Seems that, this kit has a really weird tail hook solution, because it looks like there is a part missing. Manual accounts for all parts, but this one part is supposed to cover a large hole, which is perhaps the only noticeable flaw with this kit. Really weird.

Instead of gluing on the arrestor hook, I will snip off some plastic, and paint it, and snap it onto its location, instead of gluing it on together with this other part.
8. March, 08:31
Frank J
From what I can see in the instructions, the tail hook you install in step 15 consists of two parts (22 and 23) that are attached to eachother in step 9, covering the hole completely. I built an earlier boxing of this kit a few years ago and didn't encounter this issue.
8. March, 09:26
Treehugger
This is what it looks like. Not very intuitive. :) The engine also are hollow, so all a little simplistic.

Basically, one can't just place this one part in place, you have to make sure you glue one end, somehow, else the part just falls into the hollow model. :)

Btw, I used sprue goo inside the engine openings, where there isn't much plastic, which also helps hide the seams. I am happy with the result:

Nicely done. I wonder if the air intake behind the canopy is gray colored or not, or intead of paint maybe a little bit of wash would be fitting there.

Edit: I thought I had a Fujimi kit, but apparently I have this Revell kit in my stash. Fun to see someone made such a nice build. :) Would be nice if everything fit well for once.

This kit is a pirate copy of the Fujimi E-2C (1st tool with separate windows) with stickers. But it is different copy compared to the C.C. LEE or the Heller kits.

Recommend this kit if you like the E-2. Was a lot of fun to build, but has it's challenges. Not bad really considering the complexity of the design. Biggest challenge was getting the cockpit window section to match the fuselage and the Engines to mount the wings. Do not use the decals that come with the kit as some items are oversized.

Lookin' great so far David! Looks like you are well on your way with this one. Good call on the Liberty Bells... You using the Fightertown sheet? I will have a hard time deciding between the Bells and Screwtops when it comes time to build mine.

Thanks guys. Actually using kit markings. They say they are cartograph, but the seem a tad thick. We'll see how it goes.

Thomas Bischoff
very nice work!
28. January 2016, 07:53
David Barclay
Thanks James! Well the fit isn't bad, but it doesn't fall together either. The key is test fit, test fit, test fit! You do that and you should have no problems. I have used very little filler on this. I've heard horror stories on how bad the fit is on this, and I can see why if you rush thru the build. So pic one up! I'm thinking of getting another myself.
30. January 2016, 18:50
Michael Phillips
Looks awesome man! How are the kit decals? I am curious, since they are Cartograf printed...

I might end up doing two of them at some point, one in-flight and one on the ground. One Liberty Bells and one Screwtops. I love building in-flight models!
31. January 2016, 01:11
David Barclay
Thanks Michael! Well the decals themselves are pretty darn good. Lay down real well. BUT!! They aren't sizes correctly! Most notably for the "Bell's", the tail sunburst covers the fin de-ice boot. So they need to be trimmed after. Looks ok, but it's not quite right. And the navy/USS Kitty Hawk markings are too large. Makes for interesting placement on the right side due to the Windows. I almost called a halt to the build and source the Fightertown set. But I think I can live with the results, so I'm pressing on with what I have. Hope this helps !
31. January 2016, 02:37
David Barclay
Yup ! That's the same issue here. Great decals as you say. Not Cartograph's fault. They just print on the spec's they receive. Also.... Good to know about the Mirage Decals.... I actually bought that kit just for the decals for an Eduard build LOL
31. January 2016, 05:20
Scott Dutton
Good progress, shame about decals, you wonder if they test build anything before going to market when you find such obvious things

Thanks everyone. @Vegard thanks for the heads up. The build was pretty straightforward. No big problems. One thing to keep in mind is that the kit in this configuration is a major tail sitter. I put some 150gr into the forward partner the fuselage to counter it. This ment I also had to use metal landing gear. The decals concerning VAW-124 were home made, using scale 1/72 decal set as reference. The fonts I picked up from the internet.
@Kerry, no problem mate. You know that.
@Mike, actually the bird is not much bigger than a Tomcat. Yes, I know, the Tomcat is big...

@Bernd Danke, hat spaß gemacht, die kleine :)
@Bartlomiej Thanks for the kind words, I mostly build 1:72, but for bigger planes than fighters I prefer 1:144. They need less room on the shelf of course...
6. February 2015, 18:18
Bernd Müller
The moulding quality of these nowadays 1/144 kits is impressive.
@ Peter, habe u.A eine Revell F-14a im Bau in 1/144, i hoffe die ist bald mal fertig, habe leider nicht soviel Zeit zum Modellbau.
7. February 2015, 09:11
Bartłomiej Ślusarczyk
I have the same with room on my shelf. Now I build both 1:72 and 1:144 depending on size. But still 1:144 models are cool :)
7. February 2015, 11:30
Peter Mollenhauer
@Bartlomiej Yes, I like the small scale, too. The Hawkeye looks good with my two Lockheed Orions, a P-3C and EP-3 ELINT-Version, same scale.

Yea another cheap find on the worldwide garage sale! ....ebay $24usd postage was pretty cheap too! This will most likely be used with my RVHP C-2 conversion. Over my xmas break i found some real gems including a Hasegawa 00778 F-15J 50th anv of JASDF nice overall red scheme or a dark blue scheme (plan to use both schemes) Also turned up a 1/72 KMC B-727 hard to find along with a couple of very rare 1/25 scale Ford Mustangs the 1977 MPC Cobra II and Revell's Monroe Handler 1978 Mustang nice finds with good decal sheets! So that's a few off my "Bucket List"

Cool!! It's always nice to finally find kits you're been looking for! Btw the E-2C is my fav aircraft of all time!!

B
btw really 24usd? I got mine for 50usd
24. January 2014, 01:54
Glenn .
yes it was on auction started at only $10usd slowly went $12 then $15 in the last few seconds i sniped up to $25 but got it for only 50cents more than the second highest bid so i payed $22 plus $15 postage so still worked out cheap as they retail over here for $50 to $70aud. :) So it pays to keep eyes open on auctions sometimes you might be the only bidder that can work out pretty good too! The KMC 1/72 B-727 went for $162usd but another sold at auction a day before for more than $200usd!!! I let someone else buy that! :)

I'm by no means an expert, but you could have masked the black lines and the cockpit windows with tape. But i'm sure other people here have far better tips. The best tip i can give you is: Google it :)
2. July 2013, 15:58
Dave Flitton
Looks like you are a Patriots fan. A couple of things, OK, a few things. Use a monotone background when photographing, your camera, or phone, will be able to adjust better (as well as our eyes) without the distracting background. Play with your camera, I'll bet there is a setting for photographing up close.
Your black edges on the tail and wings, did you use masking tape and an airbrush, rattle can? You will want to clean those up, if using a rattle can, try using several light passes instead of a one shot heavy pass, it will be cleaner and have sharper lines.
What I can see of the decals, it seems you did a great job.
Practice, practice, practice, and patience. Your stuff, although looking good now, will get better.

interesting project... are you happy with the wolfpack set?
29. August 2011, 20:24
Burkhard D
Yes, looks very good in the box. Thin trailing edges, delicate detail, sharp but subtle panel lines, no bubbles, all nicely bagged in bubble-wrap. Best resin job I have seen so far.

Hmmm, this is clearly a topic i´d like to follow! Have you already begun or is it still just an idea? Seems that you need a lot of noseweight for this project! :)

Burkhard D
Uh, no...still an idea. Have to finish first an A-10A, an AH-64, two F/A-18A, one F/A-18E, a Mi-24, a T-2C, an S.6B, a YF-22, an F-22A, an YF-16, a Ju188, a Ta152...a few that escape me...all 90% built and waiting for the spray booth (scratch-built, 100% complete)
I am trying very hard not to start yet another one :)

Ok, so you are busy enough! And x-mas stress doesnt help to finish any project! My sorry is with you! :)

Burkhard D
No worries, no stress at all. This is a hobby for recreation, all fun. If I were under pressure to finish them, I wouldn't spend so much time here. I do that because it's fun and recreation, too :)

The Ju188 and Ta 152 surely opened my eyes wide...I will be waiting to see them.

Kinetic moulded at Italeri price, there's really no reason for anyone not to add this to their stash :)

Tim Vereecke
I agree :)

...unless you build 1:72 and have the new Hasegawa kit :)

Tim Vereecke
hehe ... but when I visit your profile, I don't see the Hasegawa kit in your stash? Is it that good?
8. May 2011, 15:39
Burkhard D
Hi Tim, you want me to update my stash list wth 700+ entries? :)
The Hasegawa kit looks really nice in the box, can't comment on accuracy. I also have the resin wing fold set that goes along with it.

to be honest? yes :)
