P2V-7 Neptune
 
Model Description

This collectable model represents the P2V-7 Neptune, a maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare aircraft. With service deliveries beginning just after World War II, the versatile aircraft served until the late 1960s. Painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by skilled craftsmen using a wealth of detail, this 1/72-scale model P2V-7 Neptune makes a great gift for any pilot, naval aviator, aviation enthusiast or history buff.

The P2V-7 Neptune was the final variant of this long-serving patrol bomber. The P2V-7 received upgraded engines, standard jet pods, an APS-20 radar and enlarged wing tip fuel tanks. The Neptune could carry up to 8,000 pounds of mines, torpedoes, bombs or depth charges, and had a range of almost 5,000 miles. The Neptune was never carrier based, but operated from land only.

Prior to the introduction of the P-3 Orion in the mid 1960's, the Neptune was the primary land-based anti-submarine patrol craft, intended to be operated as a the hunter of a '"Hunter-Killer" group, with destroyers employed as killers.

In addition to the US Navy, the Neptune served in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Great Britain, The Netherlands and Portugal.
