So, after, what 3 months, i've made progress on this.  I got the canopy mask a while ago but then I pushed one of the windows into the fuselage which pi$$ed me off so I put it aside.
I glued the window back in a week or so ago and then yesterday sanded and polished it back smooth before masking everything and slapping on a coat of primer.
I just hope I have better luck painting this that I had with the 'dyne.

I have yet to come up with a scheme or an airline but I have some ideas bouncing what passes for my mind.  Green perhaps.

Make up a contractor that took over COD duties ... for example "COD Unlimited"; "Personnel Carriers Ltd" . Or you might go with a real one ...

My brother-in-law has talked about starting up his own small airline flying cargo into PNG.  I may invent a scheme for that.
However, one of my ideas was an aircraft used for flying gamblers to casinos based on decommissioned aircraft carriers sitting just outside of territorial waters.  If I combine that with flying to still commissioned carriers then I could call the airline COD and chips.

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

The Greyhound has a much deeper fuselage. I'm thinking feeder liner.

E-2 Hawkeye fuselage is far too cramped to accommodate passengers in any real comfort, even by light aircraft standards.

Note the lack of space for the crew:


The equipment takes up less than half of the hull volume, & their seats & desks fold out of the way to allow access fore-&-aft.

C-2 Greyhound on the other hand:


However, this is really a discussion for elsewhere.
