P-3C VP-69 Decals 1/72
Posted by Shipbuilderjake on Thursday, January 20, 2011 9:38 PM

Been looking for the VP-69 Totems decals for a solid 3 days now, to no avail. I know they are out there, but I cannot find any for sale. If anyone knows of some obscure website that has them, or if someone owns them and would scan them for me and email them to me it would be greatly appreciated !

Question is who produced them? Then it would be easier to find who has them in stock.

Well that's part of the problem. The sheet has a Superscale International number 72-432, but the packaging envelope says Microscale. So I'm not entirely sure. I contacted the folks at Microscale, but they have no record of the product, and of course Superscale has no direct website. In my reasearch I've discovered that they were made for Hasegawa's P-3A/ EP-3E kit #00167. But that kit is extremely rare and has a very high value as a collector's item $165.00. I have searched all the big hobby sites from Megahobby to Squadron to some very obscure sites with no such luck. Hoping someone has them and I can get a scan of them to reproduce myself.

If that's the case, then you'll have to go searching on eBay for them. Hopefully you'll find someone with the kit who will part with the decals...or at least scan them for you so you can print them yourself.

 

I passed up on getting several P-3 kits a while back...probably should have scarfed them up, not sure if one was the kit you are looking for.

I managed to snag a P-3C on Ebay last year and it came with a Hasegawa weapons set that included the Harpoon missiles in it. I think I paid around $15 for it .

On the workbench: Dragon 1/350 scale Ticonderoga class USS BunkerHill 1/720 scale Italeri USS Harry S. Truman 1/72 scale Encore Yak-6

Just back from Groton, Ct last night, got the mail and there they were, in mint condition. Looks like they were very well kept and still have that nice tackiness. If any one would like a high-res scan I will gladly send them to you via email.

I know this is 6 years after your offer, but I have to give it a shot. Do you still happen to habe the scan of these VP-69 decals?  If so, please please please send me a copy.
