1/72 Hasegawa CP-140 Aurora

Gallery Article by Shawn "phantom" Weiler on Nov 18 2015



This is a Hasegawa CP-140 built using Canuck decals. I will not go into detail about the real plane, apart from the Aurora is basically a P-3 Orion with lots of Canadian modifications and paint.

This model was picked up for $5 at a recent hobby show. Can not pass up a deal like that. The difference is this model was made to replace one I did 10 years ago. The old one is not that badly built but the old decals faded badly. Some of the markings over the white paint actually went a scuzzy brown over the last decade.

Sadly this model is on the top shelf. Almost out of view, but you just can not have a Canadian collection with a sub standard painted sub-hunter.
