Released: 1:144 C-130H Dyess AFB Decals in AMC Gray Scheme


Recommended Posts

Looking for 1:144 C-130H Dyess AFB decals in AMC gray scheme for a tribute build for the wife of a friend.  She flew with the 39th AS. I don't know which tail band (red or blue), or if the black DY tail code will suffice.

I am still waiting for photos from him. I am on C-130.net right now trying to figure something out.  Any help appreciated.  K/r, Dutch

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 in progress.

Thanks, yes I am familiar with Vince Maddux decals for the 39th AS in 1:48 & 1:72. I think I can do all the standard markings and stencils from 1:144 kit decals. I have asked Greg Drawbaugh if he can help. Worst case scenario. I will try to print my own red Dyess tailband. Looking for 84-2069 or 4065 or 1598.

I just finished doing this one a few weeks ago for a friend who flew in the 39th AS back in the early 90s. I used the DRAW DECALS generic C-130s, made the two on the front, and cobbled the remainder from spares.

@Chorse6, Nice work! That was my plan, but he wanted the red mid tail band with "DYESS."  So I asked Greg Drawbaugh at Draw Decals, and he graciously agreed to do them. So I will start building the kit using Bra.Z T-56 engines and wait for the decals to arrive.  Thanks for all the help,  everyone. 

K/r, Dutch

I’ve had a DY-coded Herc on my to-do list for awhile now; I’m curious if Dutch’s project might lead to some additional C-130 sets from Draw Decal.

In case folks were curious, the current DRAW Herc collection includes TN ANG, AR ANG, PR ANG, ID ANG, Minneapolis AFRES, Iraqi AF, JASDF Euro-1, JASDF Light Blue, JASDF new Blue-Gray, RAF "Custard & Crud", NASA, Lynden Air Cargo, Delta Air Lines, and Alaska "Golden Nugget"

 

A number of other sets are in the works, with the release of the Zvzeda kit likely to lead to a few more.

Draw Decal sheet 44s-C130-16 Dyess AFB C-130H Hercules arrived today. Greg included all three tail bands (red, blue & TX flag) for the 317th, so conceivably,  you could also use the 317th Texas flag tail band on a C-130J-30. Once again,  Draw Decsl to the rescue! My hat is off to Greg for his quick and thorough response to my request.  

K/r,  Dutch
