This is another P-C kit converted to AP-3C configuration. It is portrayed immediately before to retirement in late 2018. I used various parts of an AP-3C set and added other scratch built parts to get this result. The majority of the decals are from an OOP Aussie Decals sheet and the tail Chimeras from a DekLs sheet. This makes 5 Hasegawa kits completed.
