Are they expected to be individually removable like ours are?
Given the pitch of each individual turboprop blade can be adjusted (fine pitch provides good low speed operations during takeoff/climb/approach, coarse pitch yields optimum fuel economy during the cruise), I'd expect each individual blade to be removable/replaceable.

Ah, right. I see it now. Sorry about that.
It’s all in the vertical stabilisers, quickest way to differentiate (IMO) - if they’re within the frame.

Curving on top fuselage aft of cockpit and angle/droop of nose cone after that.

The tail look different compared to E-2's
But looking at the slightly drooping wings that have to be supported is it possible that the tail simply drooping from weight since this is just a mockup and the real plane has straight wings and tail.

Exactly my thought too ... I don't think it will look that way on the real one.
