Alas, they have once again compromised by putting the regular external tanks normally carried between the engines on C-130E/H model, outboard of the wings to make an AC-130A. These are far too large for a C-130A model and it[s a shame that Corgi can't be bothered to make smaller castings for the correct-sized tanks.

The missing B.707s still needed to be done in 1/400: Uganda Airlines, Air Zimbabwe (rainbow scheme), Air Niugini.

DC-8s still needed to be done in 1/400: UAT, Iberia ('80s scheme), Air Ceylon, Surinam Airways, Air Spain, Seaboard World (-63CF)

Aeroclassics Comets still missing- Dan Air (4 & 4C), United Arab Airlines/Misrair/Egyptair, Kuwait AW, Sudan AW, East African AW, Saudi Royal Flt.

Excellent point, Adrian. The tanks ARE too large, especially that far outboard of the wings. Throws the whole model out of whack. On the plus side, it looks like Corgi is striving to make their models with fewer huge seams in them.
