1/48 Italeri C-130J Hercules

Finally!  After more than one year since I've started this kit, it's done.  The Herc was built OOB with the "only" addition of more than 20 LEDs and 4 electric motors to spin the propellers.

Paint was done using Tamiya Acrylics exclusively, preshading the panel lines with pure black.

The "energy" for the lights and motors is coming up from the base through the aircraft wheels.

The base was built using a 60cmx60cm piece of wood framed at a local art store, painted with a few shades of grey and little weathered.


Even that this is not a "Museum Quality" model, I am very happy with the overall result.

Hope you like it too.
