P-3 Orion in
action is available online from Squadron.com
This new publication from Squadron Signal is laid out in the typical
style that is the trademark of this publisher.
The story starts with the L-188 Lockheed Electra and the transition
to the P-3A Orion. A few pages are dedicated to the P-3B but the bulk of
the publication is dedicated to the P-3C and its derivatives and
The rest of the publication covers the NP-3D, EP-3D and foreign users
including Australia and New Zealand.
The publication contains 102 black and white photographs and 30
detailed line drawings. 10 colour side profiles displaying different
schemes worn by various Orions of differing nationalities is also
included. A very eye catching scheme is that of the Imperial Iranian Air
Force in its 3 tone grey lizard camouflage on the upper surface. Some
photographs of the cockpit area, navigators and TACCO consoles are
A detailed breakdown lists many of the differences that go to make up
the many variants.
Overall this is a very concise and complete reference for any modeler
wanting to build a P-3 Orion.
Thanks to Squadron for the review sample.
