Lockheed P-3 Orion
Can any body direct me to 3-view drawings of the Orion and/or different colour schemes.
This model I plan to construct and need the relevent recources.

Here's something close...
Here's a three view of not the highest resolution of the Canadian version.
Also http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/ac/p-3.htm has a simple three view.

This should give you a headstart. What model are you trying to build?

I`ve finally started the build of the Oroin p3.Pictures to follow this evening
I`ve gone for 4x gws 350-d`s with 10" four bladed props and spinners (the same recomended power train for thier mustang)
Working from the props, the model is-
8" diameter fusalage
To be fitted with retracts and flaps.
the target weight is 6-6.5lb.
All foam cores are now cut and fuse cores joined together with expanding polyester foam.
I can`t decide as yet to which type of skin to use on the fuse, the choices are-
glass and epoxy
paper and pva
or a balsa/veneer skin.
The wings will be balsa skinned then glassed.
I`m still looking for colour schemes, the favorite at the moment being the Norweigen blue (sounds like a parrot!!!) can anyone help?

Jerry - those are some awesome props, but the squared tips look like the C-130, vice the rounded tips of the P-3.
RDV - I believe the Norwegians still paint theirs a kind of tannish grey. The Dutch use a very dark blue grey with a very light grey underside.
I think the most spectacular scheme around today is that of the firefighting P-3s out in the northwest. Beautiful orange-red and white.
Hope this helps!!

Oooo, this is a cool project! I've been very tempted to build one of these as a sloper... really looking forward to seeing how yours works out! The only bummer about the firefighting P-3 is the dang protruding retardant tank added to the belly...ugly! Love the color scheme though...
Keep us posted!
