The E-3 Sentry! Several months ago an opportunity arose to get some E-3 skin from 3 RAF birds that were being recycled. A great friend of mine in the UK helped get this material to us ASAP and the rest is history.
The RAF operated 7 E-3Ds, all nicknamed after one of the Seven Dwarfs from Disney’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” The RAF began operating the E-3D in 1991 and the final RAF E-3D operational sortie took place in 2021.
This week’s release is a 3-part rodeo. Tags cut from 3 different E-3Ds will be up for grabs: 125 tags cut from ZH101, 500 tags cut from ZH102, and 125 tags cut from ZH107. All are quite different and were cut from different areas of the jets. THIS LISTING IS FOR TAGS CUT FROM ZH101.
The tags cut from ZH101, aka “Doc,” were cut from aluminum wing panels. They are offered in 2 variants: Thin and Thick. The Thin tags are anything but and feature multiple layers of aluminum; many have fastener holes. The Thick tags are .5” thick aluminum honeycomb and are the thickest tags released this week. Both come with a laser etched design and tags purchased the first week will come with the aircraft’s nickname, “Doc,” etched on the back.
And to spice things up even more, we are offering these tags on our brand-new cards! These cards feature a new design layout and back, and will be printed in house alongside the tags. The new card layout and artwork was provided by BVR.
Only 125 ZH101 tags are availble for sale. To purchase these as part of a combo with other E-3D tags, please see the listing for ZH102.
