Interesting subject for sure. Leave it to the Marines to arm a refueler!

That's some next level work going on there!
Really well done!

That's a cool topic. And the first project I see including the AH add-ons - what's their fit?

WOW! What a conversion.

The fit is quite good Lukasz, I am not using the Attack Squadron Engines on this one, I had another aftermarket set I have used instead.

Impressive built and impressive workbench too; where do you put all your big models ?

Thanks Erik, they live on top of my display cases and on a large shelf. I do have one display case that is large enough to take and standard length C-130 or P-3 in 1/72

Brother Ray! Looking good! Quick question, what technique did you use to remove the starboard kit sponson? Flex razor saw? K/r, Dutch

Ray, do you have the Warbirds KC-130J Harvest Hawk decal sheet? I have a spare and can send it along, if you need it. K/r, Dutch

Brother Dutch, As I recall razor saw for the vertical cut and then scriber for the forward curves. Then I cleaned up with a file.Thanks for the kind off on the decals, I am happy to take them off your hands :)

Wow... that seems really exhausting, but can't wait to see her go into painting and weathering

Coming along very nicely, Ray! Are the walkways decals? Very sharp, I say!

Thanks Dutch, I ended up masking and spraying the walkways. It is almost ready for decals, just need to add a few final parts and finish assembling the PE fins on the Hellfires, they are very fiddly

Ray,
Fiddly! Yes, I know what you mean. I am in the final stages of assembling the TomyTec 1/144 UP-3C and the 40 odd small and extremely fiddly antennas, flap tracks, & Nav lights are about to drive me crazy. Thankfully, they provide extras, as I have lost or ruined a few already. I am spending at least as much time on this last step as in assembling the whole model. In fact I am looking for one of those lighted magnifiers that bolt to the desk top. It will be well worth it. Carry on!

Woohoo! Congratulations Ray, you did it! And she looks wonderful. Another beautiful creation.
