Update May 13, 2016

C-2A Grumman Greyhoudn Controll Yoke. This time in 1/14 scale model.

 

 

Analyse of the end of the ramp. From the images over the first hand sketch to the first CAD file. To my knowledge they are the same at both versions of the C-2A and C-2A(R).

 

New improvements with the catapult connection of the C-2A Front landing gear.

 

Here a section of the structure. FS 691, at the end of the cargo door. From there the whole back can be removed. I'll do it like the original. :-)

 

All right, more modification were required. For a better check of the result, I reendered the drawing. The Blue rod will turn the wheel 90°. Than it will fit into the box under the turbo engine.

 

My actual version of the C-2A main gear.

 

According original Grumman Data, I started the fueselage between FS 106.093 and FS 601. FS 569 is only for your information. I have to modify other sections as I'm not so pleased with some surface structure.

Update March 4, 2017

The C-2A Grumman Greyhound has four rudders / Tail. Three are working while on, no. 2 is fixed for stabilisation.

 

Another nice view of the fowler type flaps of the C-2A.

 

Shown is the cargo area of the C-2A in original data from the builders manual.

 

With the Reproduced C-2A the Maximum Caged Cargo increased for 187 cu ft.

 

A great task, desin the wings of the C-2A. This is my first step. More will follow.
