  1. I hope this makes sense. The dihedral is the upward slope from the wing root to the wing tip. A C-130 is a little different because the wing root is actually below the wing. Most times when we think of dihedral the wing is a low wing, with the root above, such as a P-51 or BF-109 or a plane of that sorts. The slope is positive, but it throws us a curve because of the C-130 design. The only time I had to walk up a slope on top of the wings was when the whole plane sloped to one side. I hope that helps to clear the mud. :)
  2. Bottom Line I would say is to just make it straight on the top from Wing tip to wing tip. I say this because In all honesty you would never see a C-130 on THE RAMP with a completely zero fuel load, most aircraft will sit with a ramp load. Of course if it is in a fuel barn then yes it could be drained. I spent 20 years on C-130's as a mechanic and flight engineer and never noticed. The only part I ever notice was the the tail is not the same on each site as far as angle. This is done to eliminate the "P" factor caused by all four props trying to push the aircraft to the right. Hope that makes sense.... https://theaviationist.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/C-130-Elephant-Walk.jpg As you look at it you can see the angle difference. Also the wings look level to me.... :)

  5. I am going to give this one a Whirl (pun intended). I am going to build the Kitty Hawk AH-1Z. I will post some beginning picks of the unstated contents here after I get the photos loaded to Photobucket. I am also going to order some metal barrels for the 20mm. I am not sure which markings to use, but I will post a pick of the few I am considering. :). More to follow. Hope to get this done in the timeframe, but I am making a major cross state move here at the end of the month from Florida to Indiana.

  11. That is a shame. I loved going into there while I was stationed at Scott. Chris was a great dude, and was a great place to just go and hang out. He must have gotten tired as there was always people in there when I went to the shop.
