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?

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, 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 – 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 [...]

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 by me using th[...]

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. The pylon for the radome is scratch built out [...]

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 him, but he was also a modeler. I always liked going to h[...]

1/144 Lockheed L-100

Here's a little L-100 (civilian C-130) I did. This was built for a friend who passed away. He always encouraged his modeler friends to build aircraft "without hardpoints." Decals were from a airliner modeler magazine. Bare metal paint was SNJ s[...]
