Lockheed P 3B Orion, A9-299, 11 Sqn RAAF Edinburgh SA 1976.
1/72 Hasegawa, my first P3, with my own search light from alloy and perspex photo 8, I also deepened the undercarriage bays, filled a couple of windows and most of the sonobuoy chutes, antennae and static dischargers added, finished in Model Master enamels with a mix of Aussie decals and Future. This aircraft returned to Lockheed in 1983 to be converted to the AEW&C prototype as N91LC.
