Creepy Pete posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftHello, Here's my (almost) finished 1/72 Revell rebox of the Hasegawa P-3 Orion. I used Colorado decals and did some backdating to build a low viz Portuguese P-3P from it. The kit is a bit old now, but it still looks the part, despite some lack of detail here and there. My experience with the decals was a bit mixed. They worked perfect, and are in register, but they are also printed very close to eachother, and the numbering is terrible. Some have numbers, some don't. And the instructions sheet isn't very clear on many of them either. In the end I skipped many of the smaller ones around the props, and a lot on the underside. You're supposed to use the walkways from the kit, but the Revell ones are much too light for my liking, so I ended up using some from Aussie Decals, which came out pretty light too, but not too much. The radome under the fuselage, which is a bit too big, comes from the Revell/Matchbox Handley Page Hallifax kit, and was shaped with the help of some milliput. The model was a bit too big for my usual photo setup, so I used some large white sheet of paper on the living room table instead. Not perfect, but it will have to do. I hope you like it: Thanks for watching. Pete
