  1. Let me start by saying great sheet, with great options. I love the C-130 sheets you have done in the past (Guard Herks is awesome), and look forward to planned and future C-130 sheets. I did notice something on this sheet for the 23rd Wing aircraft: decal 23 the ACC tail badge has Tactical Air Command in the scroll. As Air Combat Command was formed in 1992, and all C-130's were in ACC at the time. Is this an error? I have checked my references and have not found any 23rd Wing C-130's with TAC badges. Best regards-
  2. I have that CD, it only has 5 WC-130's 2 E model and 3 H model pictures, that are taken on the ramp, exteriors only. Cheers-
  3. The J model Fat Albert does not have the JATO brackets on the air deflector doors. As for the aircraft previous to the J model, I assume your talking about the T models (H2 models for Air Force types), the last aircraft would not have them, since it was built in 1990's, earlier aircraft definitely did. The F models (B models) were built in the 57-62 time frame and all C-130's had them back then. There was a JATO delete that was around the late 2000's which replaced or had new panels for the air deflector doors. Of course this all depends on the serial number, and Lockheed manufacturing numbe
  4. 39th had a red tailband, which tail number are you doing? I thought Draw decal might have them. The only Dyess bird decals for the 39th I know of are in the 1/200th Hasegawa kit and Vince Maddox decals in 1/48th. Of course depending on time frame you could use the DY tail code, or even the Texas Flag tail band. You could also check with Steve Eggers ( if I recall did a 40th bird in 72nd), and I think he made the decals. I remember seeing a sheet some where in the forms with a bunch of Dyess tailbands in various scales, sorry I cant think of which part of the forums but most likely props or
  5. Just saw this, thankfully no fatalities. http://www.c-130.net/c-130-news-article620.html
  6. Sure thing, glad I could help.
  7. My bad, miss read your post.. Oz Mods does J model props, as does Brengun ,( molds were from Arma Hobby/ Attack quadron) both of which are very good. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Brengun-Models-1-72-LOCKHEED-C-130J-HERCULES-ENGINES-SET-Resin-Set/362672400897?hash=item5470f5aa01:g:y9UAAOSwLmhc-zR9 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ozmods-1-72-C-130J-Hercules-Engine-Nacelle-Correction-set-for-Italeri-kit/303487744728?hash=item46a9477ad8:g:feEAAOSwZyJdWInl
  8. It does take a while, my last order was on April 2nd, and is showing an estimated delivery of yesterday...but that didn't happen. I expect it will be here in the next couple of days. Seller does provide tracking information though. I would say around 2 months, with the current situation, previous orders only took 3-4 weeks. Hope this helps.
  9. Try eBay : https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-48-C-130H-engines-upgraded-NP2000-props-resin-set-by-Bring-it-MLH-485/324057524604?hash=item4b7355697c:g:MK4AAOSwpz9eSCzH They also make a 1/72 scale set. I have several of their C-130 products, and they are top notch.
  10. Jake- Outstanding Phantom!!! I thopught you might go with the 89TFS markings. Absolutely outstanding work sir
  11. The C-27J is in the paint barn, should be out next week. Once I have some pics I will get thm posted.
  12. Very nice herc build there! I always love seeing built Herc kits. I am currently working on a few myself. Since we are on the critique corner, the only thing I can see is that Baltimore never flew the H model, they flew the B E and J models, and are converting to the C-27J.
  13. SIG- Great photos by the way, everyone at the unit loves them. Jake- Yeah can't wait to get you up here to shoot them, once they're painted. There have been some issue with the planes, and that has delayed them, but I heard yesterday they are going with the new tail flash! The rest of markings should be close to what I sent you. actually had 6 C-27'S on the apron the other day, only 4 are ours, but hey they are all here finally! I'll get more info out as I can.
  14. If there is anything else I can help with let me know, it is kind of confusing right now, with Army markings still on the aircraft. They should be painted very soon with the Air Force ANG markings.
  15. The C-27J tail #27012 is owned by the 179AW/164AS, the first US operators of the C-27J. aircraft has not had the ARMY markings changed yet. The Air Force took full control of the C-27J program in october. Still called JCA progam, but now completely Air Force ANG.
  16. Great looking decals Mark! Based on the sprue shoots I have seen, there are several items that would have to be scratch built, or maybe someone would be willing to cast (hint, hint) them. The US C-27's are sent to Waco TX, for upgrade to the JCA standard. US C-27's have several additional antennas, SATCOM, INMARSAT, and a different RWR/MWS suite, than the other C-27J's out there. Still waiting for the USAF markings to be done.
  17. The 164AS 179AW is currently the only US C-27J Operator. The Aircraft are still in US Army markings. The Aircraft will have USAF Ohio ANG amrkings applied soon, but the basic aircraft color will remain the Army gray color (which is a much lighter than USAF AMC gray), until the aircraft go to depot and get a total repaint to the AMC Gray. Once they have USAF markings I will get some pics posted.
  18. We just recieved our 2nd C-27J last night, had a total of 3 on the apron our 2 plus a transient A/C. The ECM suite on the JCA (US) C-27 is quite a bit different than all the other users. Of course they do have the HUD, no inflight refueling, big scanner windows in the back. Has the C-130J cocpit setup and D2100-3 engines. Since Lockheed developed the C-27J as a mini herc, but the deceided to go with the C-130J for the JCA competition. Still have army markings on them even the one that just flew in from the factory in Waco that does the mods. Just saw the Italeri kit previews, and need to orde
  19. There are J-30 models at Little Rock AFB, 50th AS. and now at Dyess AFB, 317th AG. I believe that Yakota Japan will be receiving them as well.As for the ANG Cailfornia ANG 146AW, Rhode Island 143AW have the -30's Maryland 135AG have standard J models. HArrisburg PA has the EC-130J.
  20. Ben- Thanks for the info, I already had the shots posted on the F-100 web site, found them diggin through all the old photos at the base. But still nice to have the rminder of the site, since I had forgotten about that one. Thanks again-
  21. Anyone have pics of Ohio ANG Huns? I am specifically looking for 164th TFS 179th TFG pics, they had yellow tailbands with a script "OHIO" in white. Also looking for F-84E/F, F-80C, F-51D/H, T-28, AT-6, T-33, C-47, C-46, C-54, T-29, A-26. Working on a history project for my squadron, and would be very thankful of for anyone who has pics. Thanks in advance-
  22. Steve- I would love to post photos of the Herc. I think you pictures are outstanding! Some of the best shots I have seen of the Herc! It will be up at Cleveland airshow next weekend, I think they will be flying a Demo there as well, but it is tough when the Blues have Fat Albert doing a demo as well. Glad to see so much interest in the aircraft. makes the work put in worth the effort. ;)
  23. Awesome pics!! I am very pleased that everyone likes the C-130 paint scheme, that was my 1/1 scale special project this. The nose art has all the aircrat that my squadron has flow since being an ANG squadron. I will post some pics, once I have them sorted and resized.
  24. That is excellent work there. getting ready to do that kit for my squadron, 164th OHANG, like the decals, will you be making more? thanks
  25. Looking good there Jake. Can't wait to see the finished bird. Hope you go with the Fargo bird.
