YEEEEEHAAAAWWWWW!!!!! It's about damn time somebody came up with one that actually LOOKS like a C-130. There are a few models out there but the fuse looks crappy on all but the most expensive ones. I hate foamies but I'll be standing in line for TWO of these!

I worked on EC-130Q's in the Navy in the very early 70's. This is one of the actual planes. It's now in the boneyard at Davis-Monthan.

So, now for the real question: Who's going to be the first to build one with rocket assist takeoff?

Very nice! With some black props and a good coat of Testors, she'll be one fine-looking bird.

When will she be available in the United States? Is it just Rudder/Elevator or is there Aileron control too? I can't tell from the pics.
