Bear Hunting
A micro-scale (1:200) BARCAP package, including an E-2C Hawkeye and a group of F-14 Tomcats.
About this creation
The latest addition to my set of micro-scale (1:200) aircraft is an E-2C Hawkeye. I know that the radome is a bit too large, but there is no 5-wide dish, which would have been perfect.

I have shown the E-2C here with a group of F-14 Tomcats in a BARCAP package. Back in the Cold War era, every US carrier task force maintained a BARCAP (barrier combat air patrol) presence along the probable threat axes. A BARCAP package would include at least one E-2C and a flight (often more) of F-14s.

Soviet maritime bombers, at first the Tu-95 Bear, and then later the Tu-22 Blinder and supersonic, swept-wing Tu-26 Backfire, posed an enormous potential threat. These aircraft could launch ultra long-range anti-ship missiles, such as the AS-4 Kitchen, which boasted a range of over 300 nm, a speed in excess of Mach 4.5, and a blockbuster warhead of 1,000 kg.

Great work! I love your interpretation of the AIM-54 Phoenix. Where are the Tu-22 and Tu-95??

Really fine miniature aircrafts. The Hawkeye looks great, and all the tail rudders are present. Now there is only missing a TU95 Bear.

Thanks. You are correct that I was thinking of the Jolly Rogers when I designed the F-14s, but they are not the only ones to have ever sported black tail markings (although they are probably the best known).
