  • C130 Plastic Kit 1/72 or larger?

    I've been looking around on the web but so far have come up empty on this...want to get a C130 kit, 1/72 scale or larger. Anyone have a lead?
    Thanks in advance!

            Not sure which scale I'm going to get, a close friend of mine is a loadmaster on the C130. We're both going to get one and finish them as Wisconsin ANG. Have a visit just about all set up for closeups, and then I'll be making the decals on my ALPS decal printer.

              I agree the 1/72 Italieri one is excellent. I think the airfix one is from older molds. Also Italierei offers different versions, C-130H, spectre gunship and C-130J which has the funky 6 bladed props. They also have a huge 1/48 scale model too.
