"A well done Viking"
hhpodesta
The Lockheed S-3 Viking is a 4-crew, twin-engine jet aircraft that was used by the U.S. Navy primarily for anti-submarine warfare and it was carrier-based. The kit: Hasegawas moulds as usual in this scale are pretty robust, although there is a little flash creeping in here and there. Surface detail is comprised of consistently fine, raised panel lines, except for those around the control surfaces, which are recessed. The large cockpit isn't too bad by Hasegawas standards, although it only includes the pilots and co-pilots positions. The floor of the cockpit includes a centre console with some raised detail. everything inside is a little simplified. The instrument panel itself is devoid of detail, but a decal is provided instead. Finishing touches such as the undercarriage legs and wheels are very nicely detailed. A full-length MAD boom is included. A small selection of ordnance is included, namely two drop tanks and six Mk.82 bombs complete with ejector rack. The decals are very nicely printed for two aircraft options. This kit has been in the market for a long time, but despite its age, this is a pretty decent one. And its the only 1:72 Viking currently in the market. Recommended.
