This is the Northrup Grumman E-2C Hawkeye my girlfriend flew when she was in the World Famous Black Eagles squadron. This particular aircraft was lovingly called "The Black Mamba."
About this creation
At a viewer's request, I've added some of the close-ups I initially didn't post. After I apply the decals I've made, I coat them with some clear nail polish both to seal the ink against moisture as well as to make the transparent decals more translucent. I'm a bit displeased with the way my camera picked up the edges of the decals under magnification, where they are no at all so obvious when handling the real model. Alas, the model was a Christmas present, so I don't have it anymore to take more photos.

very nice work ..
but can u make the images larger and upload more shots of your works
I was running into problems with my original photos being too large (the site wouldn't let them upload). I'm not sure what the size limit is.
I do have some more close-up shots, but I wasn't happy with the way the light picked up the edge of the decals. I'll revisit the idea of adding them in.
