  1. Zvezda is to release in 2020 a 1/72nd Lockheed C-130 Hercules kit Source: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235061306-zvezda-2020/ V.P.

  3. Here's my 1/72 Italeri/Wingman C-130J-30 Stretched Hercules operated by the RCAF. It started out as a Testors/Italeri AC-130a 'Spooky' with a lot of scratchbuilding and modifications. I'm very happy with how it turned out, hope you like ... Thanks for looking, Colin
  4. I'm working on a 'Wingman' resin conversion (1/72) of the Italeri C-130 Hercules to an RCAF C-130J-30. The Wingman set is great, beautifully molded, and the decals are world class. I made things more difficult for myself by using and ancient and incomplete Testors boxing of the AC-130a Spooky. This meant I had to fabricate all the missing doors, and fill the extra gun ports. step one was, after cutting the fuselage apart, tape the whole thing together, and find the appropriate nose weight. The easiest way was to wire fishing weights to the forward cargo bulkhead. I wasn't sure how much would be visible in the cockpit, so I scratchbuilt a lot of details, adding side consoles, belts, flight engineer center, crew rest bunks, etc ... The resin stretch fuselage sections were attached with 5 minute epoxy, all locating pins removed, tabs installed, and because the fuselage shells were to flexible, I had to add a lot of bracing. A wing spar (wooden dowl) was added to prevent wing droop, and the bending moment and cracking from such a long wing. The airframe was completely rescribed, then filled (milliput white), scribing touched up, primed and the prominent external doublers were added. The doublers were added with .010" x .040" strip, then .003" thick tape placed on either side a sanded down to flush. The engines were attached ( the inboard kit engine nacelles had to be trimmed back by 2.25 mm to align all the engines) and faired in with milliput, and rescribed. At this point, I've installed and masked the fuselage windows - but not the canopy, filled the fuselage seams and primed again, loosely fit the wings, tanks, and stabs to check everything. Still miles to go, but it looks like and airplane. Hope you like so far ... Colin
  5. Hi, all. I've recently picked up a copy of Italeri's 1/72 Hercules in its KC-130F boxing, aka Fat Albert. I got a bargain, but unfortunately that means I didn't get an instruction sheet with the kit. Does anyone know where I can find one online? 1999.co.jp is my usual go to, but I've had no luck there for this kit. Thanks in advance.
  6. I recently got another eBay bargain, the 1/72 Italeri Hercules, which of course I'll be doing as the RAF C.1 option, as much OOB as possible (XV215). However, the decals have the 'last three' of the serial number for the nose and tail fin in black, despite painting instructions being for light aircraft grey undersides. I want to build the kit as circa 1980-85, light a/c grey undersides, am I correct to believe that all RAF Hercs at this time had white last three serial numbers, which only went black with wrap round camo in the 90s? Also, is the upper grey camo medium sea grey or dark sea grey? It looks a bit lighter than the DSG on Buccaneers or Jags for example.

    RAF Hercules

    Morning all Is it still possible to get a 1/72 Herc kit that can be built almost OOB as an RAF Herc from the 70s to 90s period? There seem to be a few American ones but are they suitable to build as a C-130K?

  11. Never really ventured into this part of the website before. I'm still relatively new here. Anyhoo, I took a few photos of a C-130K that I got to refuel a little while ago here in Winnipeg, Canada. I'll post a few photos here. The rest can be seen in my album up on Flickr. Just click on the photo to get there.

  12. My ongoing project is to build an example of each RAF Squadron in existence at the time of the 2010 SDSR. So, to represent 24 and 30 Squadron here are a Hercules pair. The original plan was to use a second airframe for the C4 extensions, but since the release of the Wingman Models conversion, the spare airframe is in reserve in case of any cock ups on my part when performing surgery. Here's the start. The parts. Getting ready for cutting. More tomorrow.

    1/72 RAF Hercules

    I am wishing to model a early version of the C-130 Hercules when serving with RAF in Sand/Brown scheme. My question is what would be the best kit to obtain for modelling such aircraft, I have oportunity to purchase a Airfix 1970's boxing at good price, is this the best kit? Any help/recommendations appreciated Derek

  18. I'm looking for a book on the subject more directed to the modeller, that is, highlighting clearly the differences between versions with drawings, dimensions, and so on... I am interested also in the newer "Super Hercules" versions, both the "normal" and the stretched ones. What did exactly changed in the later versions? Wing profile? Once more I am interested from a modeller's view, not in wiring systems. Good scale drawings would be a must. Does this book exist? Opinions, please! Carlos
  19. Hello all, I've decided to build somewhat of a tribute to recognise the drawdown of 13 years of Op Herrick by building some of the equipment that was used in the conflict. Multiple builds in multiple scales, not all will be aircraft though! This is what I've decided on so far: 1/144 C-17 1/72 C-130J 1/48 WAH-64D 1/48 Harrier GR-9 1/35 Jackal 2 I'll add all the builds to this thread instead of starting several. First up will be the C-17. Comments and suggestions welcome. Dave
  20. One of the benefits of volunteering at Classic Air Force is the opportunity to photograph visiting aircraft as well as the museum residents. Here is a selection taken during the last few months. None of these were taken 'airside', they were taken from public areas often using my trusty stepladder.
  21. At 7.30am last Wednesday morning (23rd) I received a text from a friend at Newquay Airport telling me that a visiting US Navy Hercules was leaving at 8am. The weather was awful and It's a 25 minute drive, as is usual with me I couldn't make my mind up whether to go. I arrived after 8am but fortunately the Herc was still there. I wouldn't normally bother in these conditions, but it was local, it's military, and it's a Herc. .
