    I can't speak for Navy squadrons, but I know the Marine squadrons had enough to do to keep up the Flight Schedule, not to mention the test and rework schedule. Didn't leave a whole lot of time to visit the wash rack. About the only time a bird got a good bath was when it was coming out of an Annual. The rest of the time, it was up to how well the Plane Captain assigned to that bird wanted to wipe his plane down between refueling, daily inspections, turn arounds, etc etc.
    Another factor that entered into it, in Yuma, anyway, was that come the afternoons, especially in summer, touching the upper side of a plane could lead to 2nd degree burns.
    And the dust in Yuma got everywhere. It stuck like glue too. Turn around, and the dust has settled everywhere. Very difficult to keep a plane clean in Yuma.

    Just my 2 cents worth. To me, a clean plane is suspect. Is it new? Just come from Depot, or what??

    Vaw-126 e2d 2018

    I had done VAW-126's paint job in 2014 before but I wanted this to be an up to date repaint so instead I did this one from current photos of Seahawk 603.



    The photos were posed on the FSX Acceleration Carrier using the Carrier Tutorial and switching the aircraft to the Hawkeye.



    I really like the paintkit and had just a couple of hiccups which I figured out with no problems.



    VAW-126 as you can see does not put the aircraft number on the aileron but on the upper wing.



    Thanks again Dino

    Uploaded

    You're welcome Pam. Both of my repaints have been uploaded to the Warbirds Library in the FSX Post Coldwar Repaints Section. I found a "boo-boo" on the VRC40 that I noticed when I opened up the thumbnail for the Library photo that it had no Modex on the nose so that was corrected in the upload.

    Shirley, you must be joking.

    Richard,
    Just downloaded the VRC40 2014 OEF and I'm not getting any unit patch forward of the crew door or ship name and/or lettering tribute to Rear Adm Sara A. "CLUTCH" Joyner on the aft side fuselage. Neither Port or Starboard side. All other textures look great. Any suggestions?

    Boy, I thought I'd get out of the year without any mistakes (LOL???????) EGG ON FACE!!! Sorrrrrry. I saw War*** and got it wrong. Enjoy the repaints.

    Richard

    Hope that Warchild aka Pam will enjoy them too.

    Missing Text

    I don't know. First, what sim are you using? I will check on it. I saw where I was missing the Modex on the nose and redid the PSD. I will check it out again and put in a patch here if somehow they got lost. Give me a few minutes to check it out.

    I Figured It Out

    Well, its having more than one file (which BTW is now gone) with names too much alike from when creating. Its a good way to do it I learned from one of the experts so that you don't mess up the last good one but when I went back to add the Modex on the nose and nosewheel door, well...you know what happened.
    I checked it out on the ground at NAS Pensacola in my FSX and all is well.

    Anyway, here is a Dropbox link to a zip folder with the correct C2greyhoundfuselagecolor file. Just replace in the texture folder.

    VAW-126 Seahawks in 2014

    I did this repaint for the Abacus Flightdeck 5 E2C Hawkeye back in 2014 when I was squadron CO of the squadron in vCVW3 aboard USS Truman with Wood and the other guys. I had a lot of fun doing this and I actually did ALL 4 aircraft paints. It took 2 days to get this figured out how to fit it on Dino's E2 Paint Kit but I think I managed. Here are three shots I took this afternoon after I completed Seahawk 600. All markings are authentic including the registration and the pilot and copilot. I hope you enjoy it.



    On the runway at Pensacola taking off to return to the Truman.

    A couple of closeups:

    Navy aircraft at sea were dirty/splotchy most of the time; especially during long at-sea periods and intense ops schedules. The fresh water supply was primarily for steam production for cats, and everything else was considered secondary. So when corrosion control was performed on aircraft, the end result was a paint job looking splotchy. Just the way it was. When squadrons returned from deployments, THEN aircraft were cleaned much better! NC

    Ahh...I remember at then NAS Miramar, the smell of Turco (soap) being used at the wash racks. Washing F-4/F8's
