Default This would be a cool C-130 paint scheme!

My buddy Paul caught this 179AW C-130 down at Buckley AFB. A C-130 painted up like a P-51! SWEET!!!!

Now let's see Dragon or Gemini make one of these baby's!

Nice spotting by your mate. That is one sweet looking Herc. I agree that it would make a fantastic 1/400 scale specimen; right after the RAAF C-130J-30.

How to complete the shots:



Picture this, the C130 flanked with 2 P-51's on both sides. Wauw.. That would be awesome. I'd like to see the C-130 posted in Blue angel's link. produced as well.

Nice, but what I'm really expecting are the old "classic" liveries such as those :






THAT would be cool !

Thanks to Mystical Mystere for digging these old ladies up.

What a sight it would be to see this polished fuselage of the C130.



This photo is from 1964, Unfortunately I wasn't even born yet. (I'm a 1984)

What a beauty.... Would have loved to see this sexy lady..

BEFORE Gemini release ANY scheme on this mould, I would like to see the nose re-tooled with the correct nose radome shape! At present it's far too thin and small and completely inaccurate! I refuse to buy any of their Herks until this happens!!
