VAW-123 can trace its beginning to the commissioning of Composite Squadron Twelve (VC-12) in 1945. In 1956 VC-12 was re-designated VAW-12 and eventually VAW-123; a carrier airborne early warning squadron based at Naval Air Station Norfolk, Virginia equipped with the Northrop E-2C Hawkeye. While assigned to the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) the squadron provided support for special operation forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeye is a twin-turboprop airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft operated by the US Navy and the armed forces of several other countries. Developed in the late 1950s as a replacement for E-1 Tracer, the E-2 was first flown on October 21, 1960 and entered operational service in 1964. Variants of the E-2 have been in production since the 1960s, giving it the longest production run of any carrier-based aircraft. The E-2 is operated by a crew of five that includes a Pilot, Copilot, Radar Officer, Combat Information Center Officer and the Aircraft Control Officer.

Hobby Master offers a wide selection of quality, pre-assembled, diecast model airplanes. Each model is crafted to a high level of accuracy using specifications of the original aircraft. They are constructed with precision-made diecast metal and some plastic components.

This model of an E-2C Hawkeye features:

  • Realistic panel lines
  • Historically accurate printed markings
  • Rotatable propellers
  • Rotatable radar dish
  • Optional extended landing gear
  • Stand for 'in-flight' display
