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, Aussie decals and Future. One thing I wish I had done was to move the inner engines back so they are in line with the outer engines, maybe one day I will risk this modification. Photo 4 shows re-attaching the antennae, made from invisible mending thread, after a mishap, photo 5 fitting wing spar to C130E.
