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

December 19, 2014 · in Aviation · · 17 · 2.3K

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 by me using the Vitacal system.

This model and the conversion process is going to be featured in an upcoming issue of the IPMS Journal. (These are the pics they didn't use for the Journal)
