1/200 Hasegawa C-130 Blue Angels

So, many many years after I built a 1/200 C-130 for my wife's yearly Christmas ornament, I finally got around to using the alternate decals in that kit to make a white C-130 the Blues flew! One odd thing about that airframe is that the two windo[...]

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 [...]

The Lockheed binge works

Fellow modellers . Upon Returning from a 4 month work project I found myself building Or restarting 4 Lockheed plane models at once ! A curious thing ! this is perhaps owing to the fact that some Models kits that are under way get put aside unt[...]

RCAF CC-130J-30 ‘Stretched Hercules’ in 1/72

This is a build from this spring - MultiCast's resin conversion (1/72) of the Italeri C-130 Hercules to an RCAF C-130J-30. The MultiCast set is great, beautifully molded, and the decals are world class. I made things more difficult for myself [...]

Minicraft 1:144 C-130 gunship

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, Aussie de[...]

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 [...]

Lockheed C 130 J 30 Hercules, A97-464, 37 Sqn RAAF Richmond NSW 2001.

1/72 Italeri, my second C130, with my own fuselage and side pod extensions, I also extended the cargo floor, made my own spinners, re-profiled the engine cowls, modified the exhausts with plastic tube, moved the outer engines forward to line up [...]

Italeri C-130A Hercules, 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 A model propellers and fuel tanks come [...]

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 I could. The kit is the original Airfix[...]
