Updates to C-130 Hercules models
« on: November 26, 2013, 05:07:22 PM »
This thread should work in conjunction with the "Updates to AC-130" thread
as the two aircraft are based on the same model and updates and corrections
will usually be carried over to multiple kits.

This kit error was just found by Herky (thanks for spotting this one!)
and it just goes to show you how many people buy kits but never get around to building them!
This model is two years old and nobody has spotted the error (until now)
not even Wanni, who built this Hercules last year and showcased the build on a couple of forums.

Anyway, as you can see in the photo, the USCG HC-130 model is missing part of the underwing
lettering - the U and the edges of the S are not present in the final artwork.



I have been working to repair the file, create a new model package, and it will be uploaded to the
servers very soon. If you purchased the model from ecardmodels you will be able to log back
into your account and download the updated version.  As always, you can also contact me for
the updated pages or to get a replacement kit if you purchased the model on a CD order.

I'll update you once the file is available at ecardmodels.

Sorry about this...but as always, I work to correct things and get you the best product possible.
Mistakes do happen...never be afraid to point out any errors or problems with a kit.

Just added to the EXTRAS-FREE STUFF area (at www.papermodelshop.com)
a Sheet detailing the assembly of the Main Landing Gear for all Hercs and Gunships.

http://papermodelshop.com/html/extras.html

A question was just raised about parts used in the Landing Gear assembly and how it all goes together.

In my last C-130 model update, I added some much needed Instruction pages to the kit.
These Instructions include diagrams for the Nose Gear assembly.
The kit already had some small diagrams on the Parts pages detailing the Main Landing Gear assembly,
so I didn't add anything further in that regard.

I have now expanded on those Main Gear diagrams with a little more information about the part assemblies.
Rather than modify and update a lot of kits already in the store, I have created a single sheet you can download easily.

And don't forget to look for my Build Threads on the original herc designs.
You will find valuable photographs of all areas of assembly.
