The USN VAW-126 Seahawks were established in 1969 with a home base at Naval Air Station Norfolk, Virginia equipped with the E-2A Hawkeye. Over time their aircraft have been upgraded to the E-2B, E-2C, E-2C Hawkeye 2000 (HE2K) and the E-2C+ Group II. Previous to flying with VAW-126, E-2C 164496 flew with VAW-120, VAW-124 and VAW-121. The aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman made its maiden voyage with VAW-126 assigned to it and they have been together ever since.

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.
