VP-92 Minutemen P2V7 Model

Proudly display a VP-92 Minutemen Model and show your Naval Aviation legacy!  Each model is carefully crafted from solid wood and meticulously painted to match vintage paint schemes.

This was a one-of-a-kind paint scheme that was a test for a proposed marking scheme for the P-3s, which had not arrived yet. People were not impressed and so the P-3s ended up with the Minuteman instead of a guillotine blade.

VP-92, Patrol Squadron 92 is a former United States Navy patrol squadron that was based at Brunswick Naval Air Station It was disestablished in 2007 after being active for 37 years.

The VP-92 Patrol Squadron was formed in 1970 at South Weymouth Naval Air Station, and was originally equipped with P-2 Neptune aircraft. In 1975 the squadron transitioned to the P-3A.

In 2005, the Base Realignment and Closure Commission decided to close Brunswick Naval Air Station and disestablish VP-92.
