Group Build: - Communication - E-2C Part 1

Ummmm.  As I joined the Guild to get info on BG Kursk I was only vaguely aware of the other activities that appear in this illustrious organisation.  I am intrigued by the "Communication" group build announced.

I am thinking of an AEW aircraft as my theme, in 1/600th.  Probably something US Navy based purely for the aircraft art work.  Current thinking would be a "screwtops" aircraft.

Screwtops E-2C from USS Enterprise
The line drawing by Marcin Zieliński gives me some ideas of where to improve the Tumbling Dice model.  The Forward Fuselage seems to be a little short but will see as we go.
Markings and Colours
Decals needed.

Colours seem to be a gloss scheme which might mean being able to leave the model with the top varnish coat or a satin rather than a dullcote finish
Bare Metal
Cleaning up thinning down the metal will be over the weekend
