1/144 Lockheed L-100

May 13, 2013 in Aviation

Here’s a little L-100 (civilian C-130) I did. This was built for a friend who passed away. He always encouraged his modeler friends to build aircraft “without hardpoints.”

Decals were from a airliner modeler magazine. Bare metal paint was SNJ spraymetal and buffing aluminum powder used in different areas.

Modeling tools included for size reference.

  1. I’ve used those same ‘tools” before, but my finished kit didn’t end up looking near as well as yours does.

  2. Ahh the old “beer and hammer ” method usualy followed by the ambulance and stitches as I remember.

  3. That’s a nice looking Hercules, and what a convenient size! Like your tools as well, especially the one mainly made from glass…

    Regards

  4. Well done. I’m another fan of “without hardpoints”
