Requirements & Suggestions

← Swipe To View More →


Building this model brought back many found memories of my 1500 flight hours as a pilot in the Green and Brown Whisperjet. Three notes of caution/concern: 1. The stub propeller mounts are too flimsy and easy to break. Suggest putting a dab of epoxy on each blade mount to the hub before assembling. 2. Very important to pre-fit the parts you will use depending on whether your model will have a wheels up or down configuration. Getting the ramp and door to fit in closed configuration takes some sanding and test fitting. 3. The plastic windscreen insert is tough to fit and the assembly diagram doesn't really tell you whether to insert it on the exterior surface or to slide it under the surrond.

"GOOD C-130"
This is a great c-130 the cargo area is very detailed the kit has options for the cargo doors being opened or closed also you can have the other doors open or closed. The landing gear is strong yet detailed there are lots of decal options which is nice. I had trouble with the wings there was only small plastic tabs to hold them in also the cockpit is not very detailed. However those were the only problems that I encountered. Overall though this was a great c-130 model and I really enjoyed that it for the most part went together flawlessly ,and this is probably one of the best C-130 models out there.

The C-130 Hercules is one of the most widely used tactical transport aircraft of the last forty years. The basic design dates back to the 1950s but the type continues in frontline service. The great and popular features of the C-130 is its operation from unimproved landing strips, its short takeoff and landing characteristics, and the fact that it can carry a wide variety of cargo - from troops to Hummers.
