  1. Another great effort, thanks for sharing
  2. That's right Paul, up to 26 airframes to be procured starting in 2025. Link to article
  3. Good to know about the wing seam issue Fred, I've got an -800 and P-8 in the stash and will apply this reinforcement when I attack them.
  4. Don't forget the UK are also getting 3 airframes. I have the Welsh Models kit which will do fine for me ( for now 😄 )
  5. Another ouch! from me. On the bright side the decaling looks great! 🏆
  6. This is the original tooling of the 1/72 Airfix C-130 kit. I have built it as a USAF HC-130N CSAR aircraft or as the USAF puts it "the only dedicated fixed-wing Personnel Recovery platform in the Air Force inventory". To build the HC-130N I added a added consoles and cabinets to the cockpit Tasman Models AN/ARD-17 Aerial Tracker Radome, inflight refuelling Hose Reel units from Flightpath and propellors from an Italeri C-130 kit. I also added the observer windows in the main cabin, the recover system rails and flare chutes on the upper ramp door and various antennas as seen on the aircraft

The decals are from the C-130 Herc sheet by Caracal Models and walkway outline decals from an Italeri AC-130 ki
  8. Sizes are: United States Air Force: 58mm x 3mm USAF: 56mm x 17mm You'll have to convert to inches if necessary
  9. Like the AP-3C it replaced I expect it will be a satin/semi gloss finish, I left it glossed as I liked the look of it.
  10. Nice model and I love the scheme, it is very different to your run of the mill Gripens!
