Flying Leathernecks Decals FL72001 KC-130J 'Battle Herks'

Recommended Posts

Our first release in 1/72 scale covers four KC-130J Hercules from VMGR's 252, 352 (x2) and 234, including a Harvest Hawk with mission markings. The art file will be sent to Microscale on Friday and the profiles will be added this weekend. Sheet measures 5.5 x 8.5 inches with a small addendum sheet of National Insignia and under wing MARINES markings. Retail will be $15.00 and should be available at the end of December, early part of January. This is the first of 3 sheets for the KC-130 coming in 72nd scale. The next will cover White over Gray KC-130F's, to include B00 and B0B.

Hi Dave,

 

I'm with my buddy Dutch here.  Are the KC-130Tangos coming down the pike also?

Yes, KC-130T and KC-130R aircraft will also be covered. Here are the profiles for the four options on this sheet, as well as one of the options on the second sheet.

Dave,

 

Can I ask if walk way decals are included in the sheets? I have found it hard to find good images of the tops of these aircraft and the colours for the walkway areas.

Walkway decals won't be included with the sheets. However, I am considering a stencil sheet for both high and low vis paint schemes that will include them. The placement guides will include a top side view with them shown though.

Great work there, Dave!

 

If you can include the door outlines and the fuselage prop warning stripes on that proposed stencil sheet, then we can die in modeler's peace!  Looking forward to the lower-viz "Raiders" scheme for my Tango bird but, might have to go with the local team from Ft. Worth!

 

Bravo Zulu!,

Yes, if you look at the profile for 800/B00, you'll see they're already drawn.

Dave, I'm out of town at the moment, but will return home in a bit.  How soon until this is in the mail?  R/ Dutch

They're not back from Microscale yet. There was a delay last month when their shipment of decal paper got stuck in customs and I think it pushed them back a bit. For example, I only received 360 copies of sheet FL48018 and just got the remaining 140 on Wednesday. As soon as I receive the shipping notification, I'll make an announcement.
