PostSubject: Lockheed S-3 Viking   Sun Mar 26 2017, 09:52

Here is a plane I bought a while back. I never posted it due to the old forum rules, but here we are now in the modern era...

This is a 1/72 Hobbymaster Lockheed S-3 Viking. First used in the 1970's, the plane was employed as an Anti-submarine aircraft. It was rebuilt and repurposed as a ground attack plane, surveillance, and inflight refueling tanker.

I always loved multi engine carrier based aircraft. This one was a natural for me...

This model is based on a attack plane based off the USS Forrestal. I am not sure what year this model is dated from, probably the early 90's. It belonged to VS-28 "Hukkers" USN.

Very cool, they did a good job on the smoked glass and the markings. I'm actually working on a Hasegawa 1/72 kit of this, just finished re-scribing it.

They are cool looking planes. I have the model kit too....somewhere in my stash pile. Hobbymaster likely does a better job than I ever could....

Thanks for sharing this one with us Tom. I also built the Hasegawa kit many years ago. Hobby Master did a pretty thorough job with this one. You definitely captured the Viking in it's best angles! Prices these days keep me from getting one, but every time I see pictures of it, it is beginning to make a presence on my must have list.

Tom, if your Hasegawa kit emerges from your stash and you decide to build it, I would happily join you and we can rally for an S-3 Viking group build!

That sounds cool. I have a few projects in line, but the Viking may come up sooner. I just started a Soviet "Beagle" with a B-52 soon after...maybe Wink
