Default Possible 1/48 P-3 in the future

Hello Sir,

Is there a chance of a 1/48 P-3 Orion in the future? I would love to see a manufacturer produce that beautiful aircraft.

That would be cool, as long as it came with optional parts to make a CP-140 Aurora as well.

Also, maybe a separate boxing for the P-3C AEW&C (The P-3 with the E-2 dome on it. See Whitey's build:

That would be sweet!

The way I see it, Kinetic might do well to focus on some kits that have been ignored by the "mainstream" plastic gods. The E-2C is a step in the right direction and a larger scale P-3 would be most welcome. But why stop there? What about a 1/48 C-2 , S2E/G, E-1B or P-2V? Can't help but think that they would be money makers for them. I know that I would buy 'em.....Cliff

And if we're dreaming of big things in 1/48 to have, I'd like the B-2 to sit next to my 1/48 P-3.

The C-2 and Trackers which I would make Canadian are on my hit list for 1/48.

Default Oh yeah...

I'd have to build a couple...go broke doing it though. I've said it before, if Italeri/Testors can do the C-130 in 1/48 then why not a P-3? Of course, now you're talking some expensive tooling these days to live up to the "standards" modelers expect and that's perfectly fine other than the cost of such a kit off the shelf. The Monogram vs. Trumpeter C-47 is a good example...$30 some odd dollars vs. $100 plus odd bucks.
A '48 P-3 would sell either way I think, many countries fly it so there is wide appeal. It would make for an impressively large model.
Certainly a well waiting to be tapped, all these suggestions tossed out there; the S-2 (and it's varients, C-1 and E-1B Willy Fudd!), P-2 Neptune, C-2 COD (which will be in the fleet for another 50 years!)...while we're talking Navy stuff, how about a Privateer in '48?! Man, tons of possibilities.

Well said Cliff. And a C-2 is coming..after the Hawkeye 2000 release of the current Hawkeye kit, from what I know a C-2 is fairly close behind.

Imagine the amount of noseweight you would need to prevent the 1/48 P-3 from becomming a tail sitter

Would definatelly require metal landing gear

Id kill for a 1/48th P-3. Id want the option to do an A model though. An S-2 would be great as well. And so would the P2V-7H.

I believe that that particular aircraft was returned to the US albeit disassembled and on an An-124.
