Ray Seppala @ Dave Fllitton, I have a 1/144 C-5, that will do for me! @ Dutch sorry about the REALLY late responce, the C-130-30 is an AMT AC-130H that I am butcering back to a C-130J-30. The extensions are polystyrene plugs made by a gent in Sydney under the 'Hoot Owl' branding. He mainly makes these conversion parts for himself but knocked up a few sets when I asked about them.

Dutch The ESCI/ERTL/AMT 1/72 C-130 is my least favorite Herk kit. Shapes are just wrong! But, in the hands of a master such as yourself, I am sure the results will be outstanding! My only concerns about using the old Airmodel plastic are two: the brittleness of the old plastic and the thickness (or thinness) compared to the thickness of the kit parts. It will require much internal bracing / reinforcing.

Ray Seppala Some more work done on this one, wing rescribing work found more issues to correct. The flap track fairing and engine pylon locations are wrong. So they are being repositioned. The flap track fairings themselves are also the wrong shape and are being also corrected. I have also been reshaping the engines and adding other details that I had omitted earlier including a minor reshape of the forward area and the undercarriage sponsons.
