Superscale 48-1111: S-3B Viking

Units: VS-33




Scott Van Aken

It is fitting that this sheet should come out at this time for this unit was recently disestablished, marking the end of yet another VS squadron. It is the CAG bird and is in the easy to paint overall FS 36320 with a black nose and folding portion of the fin. For kits, the original was by ESCI and later packaged by AMT and more recently Italeri. All of these kits are S-3As as there is no dedicated S-3B kit of any scale on the market. The fixes are relatively easy, though most modelers won't bother as few can tell the difference.

The sheet comes with data markings and the appropriate warning stripes along with a nicely done data placement guide.
