About this kit:
We were asked by the wife of a P-3 Orion Pilot to create a custom LEGO version of the plane her husband, Andy, flies for the U.S. Navy. The kit was a surprise gift for Andy and their son, who are both big LEGO fans. They received the completed kit in time to build the model together, prior to Andy deploying to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.
Below are a couple of pictures Andy's wife, Andrea, took during the build:
"The resemblance to the real P-3 is amazing! My son and I enjoyed building it. Thanks for designing this kit."
