Model Alliance has supplied the following information about a new release:

RESIN: CS-68 - Lockheed C-130J Hercules improvement set:

Catalogue Number: CS-68

Scale: 1/72

Price: £15.00

Content & Media: Each set contains 4 engine nacelles, 24 propeller blades and 4 propeller hubs all moulded in resin

We are pleased to announce that the Model Alliance resin range has just been extended with the release of a 1/72nd scale engine and prop replacement set for Italeriís C-130J Hercules. This after-market pack has been produced in collaboration with Jennifer Wright who works closely with the aircraft as a technician in the RAF and the test shots were reviewed by Mike Williams during his superb build in the May 2007 issue of Scale Aviation Modeller International.

The injection moulded engine nacelles on the Italeri kit can be seen to be fairly inaccurate when placed next to the resin set which is designed to closely mimic the Rolls-Royce Allison AE 2100D3 turboprop employed to power the aircraft, including the USAFís C-130Jís and the RAFís C4 and C5 transport variants.

The set is part of a limited edition resin run that substitutes the engine nacelle, propeller hub and Dowty Aerospace six-bladed composite propellers which are moulded far too thick in the kit.
