The E-2C Hawkeye is produced by Northrop Grumman and is currently in use by the US Navy since the 1960's and has been sold for use to several other countries.  The Hawkeye is an all-weather, carrier-capable aerial early warning (AEW) aircraft.  Powered by two turboprops - the E-2 is also known as the "hummer".  The E-2 carries a 24' diameter rotating radar dome.  This model is based on the livery of VAW-123, known as the "Screwtops" and has a distinctive spiral on the radar dome.  VAW-123 is one of the oldest E-2 squadrons and is based at Naval Station Norfolk.  VAW-123 was predominantly deployed with the USS Enterprise CVN-65, until her decommissioning, and has since been on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower CVN-69.

  • PARTS WARRANTY - If any piece is missing from your kit, I'll get the piece to you as soon as I can.  "New" pieces are used in producing custom kits.  "New" does not mean mint condition.  Minor scratches, etc may be visible due to parts being stored/shipped together.  "New" is also the condition listed by the parts resellers I get them from.  While I try to verify pieces are in good condition as I sort them for your order, sometimes pieces slip through (I do not inspect every piece with a magnifying glass.).  If this happens, please contact me and we can arrange a replacement.  

    If your custom kit is missing a required piece, please contact me and I will be happy to replace it.  Please thoroughly check the box/bags as small parts can sometimes get stuck inside larger bricks, etc.

    As I do not physically produce the pieces, I can not be responsible for physical defects or misuse of the pieces themselves.  Sometimes pieces break.  Forcing a connection may damage the piece.


    RETURNS/REFUNDS -  I will only accept returns on new and unopened IN-STOCK kits, in resellable condition, minus a 20% restocking fee.  Kits must be returned (received) within 30 days from date of sale.  Buyer is responsible for return shipping costs.  All custom orders and preorders are final - they are non-returnable and non-refundable.
