Minicraft 1:144 C-130 gunship

by Dennis Meyers on March 26, 2017 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

Nice little kit but smoothing in the big windshield area was challenging. Built it to compliment a Hasagawa 1:200 C-130. Is a 1:72 next?

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, […]

1/72 Italeri, my first C130, with my own resin propellers and wing tanks, I added some cockpit detail, opened the side cargo door, re-profiled the rear of the engine nacelles and tail, finished in Model Master enamels and metalizer 1401, […]

Italeri C-130A – 36 SQN RAAF

by Ray Seppala on July 6, 2015 in Aviation -- 9 Comments

As you may have figured out by now, I like to build larger aircraft types in 1/72. This is the Italeri C-130E/H kit (1/72) built as a C-130A from 36SQN RAAF. Decals are from an Aussie Decals sheet and the […]

Here is a in-flight depiction of one the C-130H models (74-1666 -“Damien”) that I worked on while I was assigned to the 40th Airlift Squadron, Dyess AFB, Texas. All wing, squadron, nose art and tail numbers were all custom printed […]


1721 Lockheed EC-130V Hercules USCG 1/72 Italeri Kit

Italeri 1/48 C-130 E/H

by Josh Patterson on April 26, 2014 in Aviation -- 17 Comments

I can only take credit for the last 75% of this build. Way back in 93 I helped one of my Mom’s friends move out of his roofing buisness. He was an avid gardener, which is how my Mom knew […]


1/144 Lockheed L-100

by Charles S on May 13, 2013 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

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 […]
