The. Wings. Actually. Fold.

E-2C

Originally uploaded by Mad physicist

I thought the retracting gear was getting fancy, but this model Grumman/USN E-2C Hawkeye model features folding wings using Grumman’s signature hinge (a la the TBF Avenger et al.).

Wow.

Other works by the same builder here (B-1B), here (Su-27), and here (F-15E). More scale Lego planes here (SR-71 and F-111).

Update: Gizmodo interviews the builder here.
