Augie David, You cant just bolt on 6 blade props to make a J, the whole Engine nacelle is different.

David W Augie, wanted to try & scratch build since I already had a kit, but will will pick up a new J kit.

Augie Most of it would work, but would need replacement donks, and nacelles. Other than that differences are minor

Ray Seppala On my KC-130J build (album and project under my profile), I started with the base Italeri C-130E/H (KC-130F boxing which just has different decals) kit, I added J models engines, longer sponsons, modified exhausts and various J specific antennas and EWSP kit. @David W, if you want to build an Israeli C-130J you will also need to stretch it. Wingman and Multicast did the set which included fuselage plugs, engines & Props, antennas and decals for an Israeli version. @Augie, the main landing gear sponsons are also short and need modifying/extending, again see my album.

David W @Ray.. Thanks for the info Ray. I was looking at the Indian Air Force C-130J. Much similar to the Israeli one with stretched fuselage & antenna arrays, but also with mid-air refueling probe. Much appreciated. Will follow your tips.
Ray Seppala @David W, when I saw IAF for some reason I starlight away though Israeli Air Force! I don't think there is much difference between different Air Force C-130J-30s except for minor changes to antenna fit.

David W Yup. I can't get a proper match on the grey shade though. It's called Tipnis Grey - a mix b/w Dove Grey & another shade of grey that's bluish or hazy depending on the light.
