"Love it so much I wrote a book"
I really enjoyed building this model. I actually wrote a detailed book on how to build it that incorporate Eduard's photo etch. It's available on Amazon and Createspace (https://www.createspace.com/6172787)

"A must buy kit"
Seems like a wonderful kit.One of my air force friends built it. It is because of this reason that I bought it. would paint it in Pakistan navy's livery. Price is quite reason. Would also recommend friends of buy it.The good thing about it is its size.

"Great kit to build lots of detail!"
5 Stars compliments this model well! From the time you open the box, and look at the instructions, and the quality of the parts, you cant go wrong! The instructions are well thought out, the paint guide is fantastic, the parts fit like a dream with few seam lines to sand .I did however find one small glitch, and in the future I personally will correct it ....the prop pins are a TAD too short. Meaning when you put the props on the pins push back against the firewall, thus leaving you with nothing left to attach the props, my tip would be too put a small piece of tape on the back side of the pin, keeping it fully extended while putting the props on! I truly wish I had done that as I wanted all my props to rotate! The box art is a awesome reference to paint markings as well..and the decal sheet...lets just say Hasawaga didn't miss any...you will spend 3-4 days just adding decals! All said , HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

"Hard work on the P-3C"
Had some very serious fit problems and lots of flashing that had to be trimmed. Instructions were good but the decals were very prone to tearing. I would say this model is not for anyone not willing to spend a great deal of time on prep and detail work. Also had a decal sheet missing some decals which is a first.


  • One decal sheet with markings for 2 version
  • 1) US Navy VP-40 "Fighting Marlins"
  • 2) CP-140 Aurora Candian Armed Forces No. 407 Sqn.
