[Kit Review] - Revell 1/144 - E-2C Hawkeye -

Kit Review - Revell 1/144 E-2C Hawkeye

An awesome kit from Revell of Germany which i reckon all 1/144 modellers know of. Cool decals on the radar that come with the kit but won't be using them.

Excellent detail as expected from Revell of Germany, same sort of quality like the F-104, F-14 etc. Noticed that there no detail inside the propeller engines for the landing gear to attach to and the small round window on the fuselage will have to be drilled out but apart from that perfect.

Kit Review - Revell 1/144 E-2C Hawkeye - Sprues

Upgrades for the kit i know of are ....
Wolfpack Design - Folded wing resin conversion.
RetroKit -Folded wing resin conversion and 8 blade Hamilton Propeller upgrade.
 FOXONE - Has very nice sets with decals, 8 blades propeller and radome parts upgrades.

Already started on the cockpit.

If I got it right Royal Singapore Air Force had previously bought a few Hawkeyes in fostering good allies relationship to the US and in my opinion, the disk on the plane looks awesome. It's like Elintseeker valkyrie of Macross.
