Here is the latest release from Caracal Models replicates the colorful C-130 Hercules, nicknamed 'Fat Albert' of the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels aerial demonstration team. This set is designed for the Italeri/Testors 1/72 C-130E/H Hercules kit and provides markings for the following options:
- KC-130F, 149806, Blue Angels, 1984
- C-130T, 164763, Blue Angels, 2011
- C-130T, 164763, Blue Angels, 2014
The KC-130F served with the team until it was replaced by the C-130T in 2002. The decals provide the variations in markings/script stype as the aircraft appeared in the 1984, 2011 and 2014 show seasons.
The markings are nicely printed (by Cartograf) and provide all of the distinctive markings for one example. For more information about this set and the other releases from Caracal Models, visit their website at http://caracalmodels.com.
My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
