the LS/Arii/Micro Ace 1/144 P3C is indeed available from a few places. I have one on hand, but I have a list of those Id like to make too, so Ive been looking around for more of them.


You'll need to find or make decals, for a specific subject.
with that in mind, Hobby Search has this one, $14 is a great price, but EMS shipping from Japan could easily double that- still a good deal.
They can be found on Amazon as well in the range of $25-30, including a few different US Navy schemes.

I'm in with this one:



Never worked on a EMHAR kit, I hope it's not like A-model.
Let's see how that turns out.
As long as I'm having fun...

That is a cool jet. I have never seen a kit by EMHAR, will be interesting to see it.

I have a huge crush on Miss Connie right now

What about space launch systems? Lockheed Martin Astronautics (LMA) was our prime contractor for Atlas II and Titan III/IV when I was at Vandenberg. The Atlas IIAS launch I worked even had a NASA satellite built by Lockheed Martin Missiles and Space (LMMS). The company has re-organized since then I see.

I want to reiterate that Lockheed-Martin is not the same company as the historical Lockheed Corporation, and products developped by LMT since 1995, as well as legacy products of other units included in the merger, are outside the scope of this campaign.
But rockets are so rarely modeled Id stretch a little to include an Atlas or Titan project - those systems came from the Martin legacy, and Convair - especially since Lockheed-designed Agena upper stage vehicles were often payloads on Titan and Atlas rockets.

The Polaris, Poseidon, Perseus and Trident sub launched missiles would definately be welcome

Ah, I see more clearly now the distinction you are making. The real question is whether I can find an Atlas or Titan kit I like.

This Ebay seller has a line of 1/144 scale Thor-Agena rockets which would have the requisite Lockheed content.

I like this dark gray and white early 60s scheme. note the spotlight pod under the starboard wing tip.

Let us not neglect the company's earlier days







Models of all of these are available.

Umm, wasn't the Atlas rocket a Convair General Dynamics product?

yes. But the Agena upper stage payload delivery vehicles were Lockheed products. so even half Lockheed (on the off hand chance someone wanted to enter a rocket in the campaign) would be enough.

And don't forget that Lockheed created the business jet

In the event I manage to clear my workbench, which is looking very likely, I am going to try something different for this campaign. Since we have this and the "Fork Tailed Devil" campaigns running concurrent, I think I will do a dual P-38 build for both complete with a build log. I had so much fun doing the log for my P-51, it should be twice as fun doing one for a dual build right?!

So, I am going to hold off starting anything else and finish up the kits I have taking up my bench. That will give me:

Lockheed Campaign: Eduard 1/48 P-38 'Pacific Lightnings' Limited Edition [Academy reboxing]
Fork Tailed Devil Campaign: Academy 1/48 P-38M Night Lightning

right you are! and will be glad to have a P38 in the Lockheed campaign.

I have been doing mostly dual builds lately.

Its a valuable weapon in the Stash Wars.

In bare metal, white over gray, or lizard green camo, the 141 had charisma
