Lockheed C 130 E Hercules, A97-178, 37 Sqn Richmond NSW 1993.

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, […]

Lockheed C 130 A Hercules, A97-212, 36 Sqn RAAF Richmond NSW 1963.

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

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 […]

Hercules C.1 XV292

Finished this not long ago after it languished on the shelf of doom for 18 months. As it had been masked up for so long it was difficult to remove the cockpit masking. Patched up the cracked paint as best […]

C-130H “Damien” – 40th Airlift Squadron “Screaming Eagles” – 1/72 Italeri E to H conversion

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

This is a heavily modified C-130 from Italeri in 1/72 using parts left over from a E-2 Hawkeye that was coverted to a C-2 Greyhound. Seemed a waste to have the radome spare and not use it on a Herc. […]

Italeri 1/48 C-130 E/H

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 […]

U.S. Homeland Defense, 1958

The CIM-10 BOMARC missile was the US Air Force entry in America’s air defence, an unmanned adjunct with its air defense fighter interceptors. The missile featured a liquid-fuel booster with two ram jet sustainers, longer range than the Army’s Nike […]
