C-130B USAF w/2options
Developed in the mid nineteen fifties, the C-130 provided the U.S. Air Force a new modern turbo-prop transport with long range and short take-off and landing capability to replace the aging twin and four engine transports from the WWII era. For over 50 years the C-130 has served as the most versatile U.S. Air Force transport in history. This kit represents the distinctive C-130 B which did not use under-wing fuel tanks. This variant was among fastest and most maneuverable versions of the early C-130 designs. This kit features new markings for 2 aircraft, opening rear cargo door, rotating propellers and recessed panel lines.
Markings for the following aircraft are included in this kit:
C-130B 60-0295, USAF, Germany, 1980
C-130B 61-0950, USAF, Germany, 1964
