Great idea well executed.

What does it use the sonobuoy launchers for, though?  ;) (The multitude of small round hatches on the underside of rear fuse.)

Is that what they are?  I did wonder.
I haven't allocated the space in the back end of the fuselage for anything.  Ummmm, toilet could be in there plus cargo space for deliveries to the Casino/Carriers.  So maybe they are ejector ports for the rapid unloading of wine and spirits?  You want as quick a turnaround time as possible given the limited deck space.

Cracking job there Fred. LOVE the colour scheme!  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Empty beer can ejectors, perhaps?

I never would have thought of turning an S-3 into a civvie plane but that looks really cool.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: Fantastic idea that lends itself to many other schemes like Air New Zealand or Qantas. You could even chuck on another 2 engines and it could be the upgrade to the Whisper jet

Brilliant, bud!!! This is very good, I love it!!! The Viking has always been a favorite of mine and it never occured to me to civilianise one but it is just begging for it, isn't it?   :mellow: :mellow: :mellow: :mellow:

Thanks folks.
Lee - The three guys are from an Elhiem figures set called something like 70's cops.  Their names are Big Phil, Bob and Sanjay.  Bob is the one in the yellow (bri-nylon) suit.  I modelled him on Bob Downe.

They could be ejectable storage cannisters that are hired by the passengers. You hire as many cannisters as you need, load any items into them that you might want to disassociate yourself from, and then your cannisters are electronically linked to a button on your seat. If the aircraft is intercepted by authorities intent on seizing those items, or forced to land somewhere where those items might prove to be an embarrassment, then you just hit the button while you're still over the sea.  :thumbsup:

Yup, or confetti containers for when it's hired by wedding parties as the "getaway vehicle" ?  ;)
