1/72 Italeri, my third but not last C130, I moved the outer engines forward by 2mm to line up with the inner engines, modified the exhausts with plastic tube, added some antennae and navigation lights, finished in Model Master enamels, Aussie decals 50th anniversary of 37 Sqn and Future.

  1. Another gorgeous Hercules & a paint finish to die for!

  2. These models are terrific, Allan. What is the name for a collection of these? A host of Hercules or perhaps a herd of Hercules? Any ideas anyone?

  3. Nicely done indeed….you do good work. Love to see your full display.

  4. The history of Herky birds, another fine job!

  5. Another beautiful Herc! I’m detecting a theme here…must be an Aussie!

  6. Great looking build Allan. You have done a marvelous job on this. Very interesting and eye catching paint scheme.
