1/144 LS P-3 Orion
In Bermuda in the 80’s I was in high school and grew up with P-3 Orions flying overhead. The Atlantic Soviet sub threat had to be monitored, so squadrons rotated through Bermuda regularly. Interesting how there isn’t an NAS Bermuda any more, but a detachment of P-8 Poseidon aircraft have been based here recently.
I loved building the LS Orion Kit- had quite a few of them a few years ago. I wish I had kept the Canadian Aurora boxing with this one, but sold that along with a lot of other kits in a major cull of the stash. I have a 1/72 Hasegawa kit in the pipeline in VP-45 markings too! Love that Pelican. For this kit I made use of a spare stand that comes with the 1/200 Hasegawa C-130 kits to build it in flight.
