AP-3C Orion, 10SQN & TAP-3B Orion, 292SQN

Postby RayS » Fri Mar 15, 2019 10:10 pm

Some of you may have seen progress shots of the AP-3C on the ADF Modelling Facebook group.

It is now complete. I used the Hamilton hobbies conversion set as a basis and added extras that were not included or corrected the shapes on some of the supplied parts. It's finished in 10SQN markings from Aussie and DekLs sheets.

The TAP-3B was a shelf of doom project that I decided to finish with the AP-3C, I de-modded the P-3C to a P-3B and used DekLs decals to finished it.

Looks great Ray. I'm going to make a stand something like that for my B17, so an inflight display.

Nice going Ray, they all really look lovely.
Now I know who to go to should I ever need any advice on building one of these Hasegawa kits!!

Fabulous work, Ray! I have another one of these I want to finish in the same scheme but I'll put the gear down.
