Lockheed CL-423 P2V-7 Troop Transport

Another great article from “Fatz”. This time on the proposed Lockheed CL-423 P2V-7 troop transport conversion.

The McDonnall Douglas Scale Model Club magazine called Crazed Plastic published several articles by an author named “Fatz”. These articles were on projected Lockheed aircraft that didn’t make the cut. Fatz was a former Lockheed employee who did similar articles for other International Plastic Model Society (IPMS) publications such as “Flying Tiger” and “Dirty Plastic” and West Michigan.
