Lockheed S-3A Viking, done as Viking AS.1, 847 Sqn FAA, HMS Queen Elizabeth (CVA01), 1986
Italeri 1/48 kit, OOB, except pilots and Sea Eagles.
(Yes, I know after the Falklands the RN changed its colour schemes, but in this timeline they didn't)

Bought to replace the aging Gannets when the CVA class carriers were commissioned

Absolutely gorgeous!!  Beautifully done.
So I got that going for me...which is nice....


I'll meet you on the dark side of the moon.

Wow! Looks absolutely great!

Great build  and paint job!
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.



Fabulous. As a kid in the 1970's, the Viking was in my Royal Navy too!


Fabtastic.  Looks great.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

If it aint broke ,,fix it until it is .
Over kill is often very understated .
I know the voices in my head ain't real but they do come up with some great ideas.
Theres few of lifes problems that can't be solved with the proper application of a high explosive projectile .


That is OUTSTANDING! Probably the best Viking I've seen anywhere, super job.  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

lining up with the rest, to say top job   :thumbsup:
the things you learn, give your mind the wings to fly, and the chains to hold yourself steady
take off and nuke the site form orbit, nope, time for the real thing, CAM and gridfire, call special circumstances.
