Hobby Master 1:72 Air Power Series Diecast Model

Lockheed S-3B Viking – 159746, VX-30 "Bloodhounds", U.S. Navy, 2016

1:72 Scale.  Length: 9".  Wingspan: 11.5"



Limited production of approximately 400 models worldwide


The first of three Lockheed S-3B Vikings received by VX-30 “Bloodhounds” was 160147 after it and two other Vikings underwent ten months of depot-level restoration meant to increase their life-span by six years. 160147 was produced in a batch consisting of 160148 and 160149. The S-3B was used at Point Mugu, California for range clearance and surveillance near the shooting range. Between 1971 and 1978 179 operational S-3 Vikings were manufactured and assigned to 18 Navy squadrons accumulating over 1.7 million flight hours. S-3B Viking #160147 was sent to the bone yard in January 2016.

The Lockheed S-3 Viking is a four-seat, twin-engine turbofan-powered jet aircraft that was used by the U.S. Navy to identify and track enemy submarines.
