  1. I've been looking at getting the Zvezda C-130 kit, more so now that Belcher Bits has issued their RCAF / CAF CC-130 decal sheet in 1/72. I would like to do the earlier version from this sheet, a C-130B: Does the new Zvezda kit allow for this? Reading the decal sheet instructions, it sounds like the main difference is that there was a cargo door on the forward fuselage. Is that all that I would need to concern myself with or is there more to it?
  2. To all who likes to try this!! The Zvezda C-130 hasn’t yet a dedicated flap conversion set and as had the Attack squadron one already in the stash I decided to try this ... At first I was fondling around with the Zvezda plastic and measured the thickness of the wing and after some more measuring I thought it could work out and it did.. First the wing shape at the underside had a concave shape in the wing and at first I thought that would be correct but after some comparisons elsewhere and some looks on the Bring it! resin aftermarket producer Facebook page I came to the conclusion that it was wrong.. The perfect Hercules has flaws The inner flaps need rescribing as they are wrongly shaped.. I also think that the panel lines for the flaps are a little bland and could be more pronounced. The flaps aren’t concave but they should be flat/straight..and there the resin flaps came in as they are pretty correctly shaped.. Nevertheless this Hercules is still to be regarded as the best rendition in my opinion as I had them all. If you leave out the Zvezda kit my second to love Hercules is the Airfix C-130 as it has a much better overall appearance regarding the Italeri....enough kit bashing now I followed the instructions for the Italeri Hercules cutouts generally only in order to get it fitted I had to thin down the wings considerably and this is not for the faintharded! Not only I had to thin the wings but I also did thinning on the resin as well as it some points it is quite thick. The outboard flaps got a treatment of warm running tap water in order to push out the more concave shape, not much but I did got a better fit in doing that... Now some pictures.. The picture above shows you the incorrect panel linesfor the flaps.. Even the panel lines for the wingroot fairing is way outboard which it shouldn’t be ...it should be nearer to the fuselage..
