Cheers everyone! Since the Prowler is finished, I've been working on several projects in parallel. The carrier deck diorama is still in progress, I am working on my carrier deck vehicles, I am trying to finish Trumpeter's Super Hornet before the new Revell kit hits the market and the Hawkeye is back on the bench. The Viking has to wait until after Easter to get its milled wing center section. As I was planning to build the Hawkeye's closest relative since quite some time, I thought this could be the moment to start the Greyhound while finishing the E-2C. Thanks to my friend Thomas, I could get my hands on a Kinetic Greyhound to grab some dimensions and cross sections. I also have the old Warpaint drawings but I found these to be not as accurate as required. As usual, I made a skeleton in 3D and had the parts lasercut. Here is how the parts looked when I got them: And here is the assembled skeleton together with its brother. I have already prepared quite a few parts for the Hawkeye which can be used on the C-2 as well such as seats, flaps and engine nacelles. I will buy another Tigger Models Hawkeye to get wings, fins and elevators. As usual, progress will be slow but hopefully steady.
