Burkhard D I think the Italeri kit has engraved panel lines

Wilfried Bogaerts Guys, the Italeri C-130J in 72nd scale has raised panel lines so I believe the older versions in 72nd scale will have raised panel lines too

Burkhard D If only I knew where the Italeri DC-130A kit is buried in my stash, I could have a look at it :-D

Burkhard D I only bought it for the BQM-34(?) drones. I think the kit has wrong props (requires 3-blade props and some nose modifications). These DC-130 kits are still available on eBay every now and then. One of those big 'must have' kits that, due to their size, are rarely built.

Dutch You can build the italeri DC-130A kit with four blade props, but you will need a thimble nose (DB Resin, Airmodel, others?), either with or without the lower vertical radome. The correct BuNos for this version are: 570461, 570496 & 570497. Conversely, you can keep the standard C-130 nose and add three blade props for BuNos: 158228 & 158229.

Dutch Correction: Please add DC-130A #560514 with four blade props and thimble nose. Also note that the Navy DC-130A's with thimble nose did not have the lower vertical radome. These BuNos i provided are only the US Navy ones. USAF had a few more with the lower vertial radome and three & four blade props. Best advice is to find several photographs and do your research.
