    Am needing diagrams for S-3 Viking?

    A friend is in the process of building a S-3 model, and needs diagrams, showing the S-3 Viking measurements. Any help here? Thanks. NC

    Thanks Odie. I had originally received request for assistance from the retired Master Chief who runs the technical publications library at the Naval Aviation Museum. He has access to Natops, etc..., but not blueprint type diagrams, unfortunately. NC
