Testors/Itlaeri 1/72 AC-130A Hercules Gunship
This kit fought me pretty much all the way through. Fit wasn't that great, so there was a lot of putty, sand, prime, repeat. The decals looked great, but turned out to be a very stressful part of the build. The glue was thick and opaque, but luckily dried clear. They were also very brittle, so if I had to move them I was doing so in pieces. I had built the same version in 1/144 a few years, and liked the way it looked so I opted to build a bigger one. Silly me, lol. Not without it's flaws, but overall I'm happy with it. Paints used were all Model Master enamels. No aftermarket goodies on this one either.
