Superscale 48-1073: S-3B Viking

Units: VS-22




Scott Van Aken

Another great S-3 sheet is this one for the CAG bird of VS-22 when aboard the USS Harry Truman for what was probably their last cruise. Markings are in full color and the aircraft itself is in overall FS 36320. The suggested kit for this is the only one done in 1/48. Originally done by ESCI in the earlly 1980s, it has been reboxed by AMT when they bought the company, a few years back by Revell AG, and most recently was issued by Italeri. The kit itself represents an S-3A so a few updates will be needed by those who want an accurate S-3B.
