The E-2 Hawkeye is a carrier based early warning aircraft that has been in constant service with the US Navy since the 1960's. Pilots have nicknamed the aircraft the "hummer" due to the characteristic hum of all the onboard radar equipment. The C-2 Greyhound is a carrier-based cargo aircraft designed to transport mail and various other cargo from land to the carrier and vice versa. It was developed from the E-2 Hawkeye and shares an identical wingspan and engine layout, albeit without the radar equipment and with a fatter body. Pilots have nicknamed the C-2 the "COD"

Both aircraft feature retractable landing gear and accurate folding wings.

I like the Hawkeye, but the Greyhound is one of my all-time favorites. Well done with your models!

The wing folding mechanism is great, as well as the scale. I also like that you didnt try to cover every stud. I like models that show the studs at this scale.

I may have seen these before, but I still think that the way the wings fold is ingenious. Keep up the great builds. ^_^

This is very nice looking and the detail is amazing! Another person to add to my favorite builders list! The only thing that I see wrong with this is the nose. It seems to short where as the real one has more of an elongated nose.

Nice job! The shaping looks very accurate on both, especially on the rear stabilizers. I also like that you go the wing folding mechanism to work like the real thing.

Thank you for that information. I didn't put too much research into the aircraft, but my father used to fly both of these and he always referred to it as the COD. After all these years I just assumed it was a nickname. Thank you for your comment!

Very nice job on both, but the "COD" moniker isn't a nickname, it's an acronym for the job the aircraft performs - Carrier Onboard Delivery. They're the "mail truck" for the carrier, delivering parts, personnel, and the actual mail. This service has been performed by numerous aircraft over the years, although the Greyhound is the first to be purpose-built for the job. Before its introduction there was testing with the C-130 Hercules for this role, with 21 unassisted landing and unassisted takeoffs made from the USS John F Kennedy.
