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.

Yes indeed. A true masterpiece. There's something about an Orion. Thanks for posting. Just beautiful Allan.
You obviously like these big birds, Allan, and have presented us with yet another superb model.
Thanks George, I like all sizes, just starting with the big ones.
Outstanding work, Allan, but you need to stop teasing us with just one pic). 🙁
