1/72 Hasegawa P-3C Orion

Gallery Article by Rod Bettencourt on Mar 8 2011


This is my build of one of the aircraft I flew in as an aircrewman (AW2) back in my Navy days.  It represents an aircraft from VP-8 flying out of Sigonella Sicily 1993.  I rescribed and added the Eduard bomb bay and landing gear wheel wells set.  Paints were Model Master. Superscale decals for the tailflash, the rest were homemade by my wife.

The pictures are done using a Fuji camera on auto setting. The photos could probably be better if I knew how to use the camera!

Hope you enjoyed seeing it.
