Another 2116 build, an MPC 1/72 C-130 Herc in the early plain silver scheme for the MATS.

A nice kit with good fitting parts and operating features such as flaps and loading ramp. The glass for the cockpit was a bit thick and hides the detail in the cockpit.

This model was involved in the clear coat/silver paint transposition incident of 2016. The incident went somewhat unnoticed.... Embarassed

I'm so used to seeing Hercs in camo that it's quite a shock/refreshing change to see an all-silver one. Great job. How was the kit?

I like the early bare metal look on planes when I can historically justify it. The MAC scheme lends well to that preference.

The kit was nice fitting and pretty straightforward. It didn't need much filling. It definitely needed nose weight but I built a pallet with lead squares simulating a load of ammo and glued it to the forward floor in the cargo bay...
