MPC's 1/72 scale
Lockheed C-130A Hercules
"Roman Nose"

by Let Models


Lockheed C-130A Hercules



Revell's 1/48 scale Bf 109 G-10 is available online from Squadron for $14.36!

 

Description

 

Here is my early model Hercules C-130A Roman nose, I built this for the VNAF MAC 5th Exhibition in July 2010.

The model is based on the old 1/72 scale MPC kit with the addition of :

  • a scratch built nose,

  • scratch built 2 fuel tanks,

  • rescriped the side cargo door,

  • added the 4th window on both sides.

  • the 3-blade prop from DB conversion set (metal), I managed using just only the blade and
    glued them to the kit parts engine prop hub...(what a pain on the neck when I separated them!)

  • dropping the flaps and elevators.

I used the Polly Scale acrylic pain for 3 tone SEA camouflage.

I'm very happy with the results, what do you think?
