P-3 Orion Airplane Model Kits, Plastic Models, Diecast Display models, Books and DVD Videos.  The P-3 Orion is one of the most beautiful airplanes that I have ever seen and I'm telling you the truth. It may seem strange because everyone I talk to about this say it's a jet fighter or WW2 fighter aircraft. But the P-3 Orion to me is a fantastic airplane.  C. Jeff Dyrek.

  P-3 Orion Antisubmarine Airplane Kits 










P3C Orion 1/85 Model
Pre Built Molded Resin Model
While not a stealth aircraft, this plane us primarily used as an electronics surveillance aircraft, hence, Spy Plane.   Made of durable molded resin, this 1/85 scale model measures 16 " in length and has a wingspan of 14". Hand painted and detailed, model comes ready to display on the included mahogany base.

Webmasters Note:  This is an identical model of the P3 Spy plane that had collided with the Chinese Flown MiG-25 near Hinan Island in April 2001.   It was a crime on the Chinese part because there is no way that this slow, clumsy aircraft could avoid being hit by the extremely fast, nimble MiG-25 Jet Fighter.

Note 2:  Look at the probe sticking out of the back of this airplane.  This is part of the aircraft's MAD gear which stands for Magnetic Anomaly Detector.  I detects minute variations in the earths magnetic field caused by a ferrous (Iron) object such as a submarine under the water.  This version of the aircraft is used as an Anti-Submarine aircraft.    C.
