    Orion - Son of Electra

    This is the Hasegawa P-3C Orion in 1/72 Scale converted to a P-3B of the Argentinian Navy.

    I modified it to a B model by removing the sonobuoy tubes and updating the antenna config consistent with the prototype. The HF wire antenna lines are EziLine. I also rescribed the model.

    It is painted mainly in Gunze acrylics and SMS metallics and decalled with the DekLs sheet (the reverse type).

    Great job Ray. So many of these birds still flying for Maritime patrol. The RCAF is extensively updating them, they will be in service for many years to come.

    Thanks, there certainly are Paresh, I plan to do a Fincastle CP-140, I have had the decals for about 15 years. Too many kits, not enough time.

    Too many kits, not enough time. Yeah that sounds familiar in my book as well. I look forward to seeing the CP-140.
