1/72 P-4 Pluto ASW Platform, USN

A place for our military aviation modellers to show their stuff. It may not be civil but it still has a home here

Got all this stuff together 9 months ago then just let it sit. I finally started it 3.5 months ago and finished it today.

What I did was create my my own model kit from spare parts and turned it into a 1/72 scale ASW plane, the "P-4 Pluto."

Parts:

Italeri B-58

Hasegawa F-15

F-rsin ATR-72

Heller P-51

Polar Lights Star Trek Enterprise 1701

Airfix F-4 Phantom

Nitto Boeing 707

Amodle Antonov An-12

Airfix Sud caravelle

Airfix T.11 Vampire

There are two or three other kits that contributed some parts that I can't place.

Decals from 6-7 different sheets.

All together ~18 kits contributed something or other.

4 scales:

1/1000

1/144

1/100

1/72

Indeed! Another "What If" but a lot more plausible. Funny, I noticed that it was two years to this day since I finished it.

Thank you!! I'm as surprised as anyone. It's weird, but I love it!! I wish I could get out to model shows. :oops: I'd plop this thing down just to see what sort of commentary came about.
