Here is an interesting decal release from Modeller, C-130s in Imperial Iranian and Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force service. This set provides an interesting cross-section of time periods which, in turn, provide different camouflage schemes carried by these aircraft.
The aircraft presented in this set include:
- C-130H, 5-140, IIAF, early 1970s
- C-130H, 5-8507, IRIAF, 2017
- C-130H, 5-8540, IRIAF, 1988
- C-130E, 5-119, IIAF, mid-1960s
You can see in the decal image that some of the roundels have separately printed red dots for the center, but the smaller roundels provide complete roundels as one marking. These decals are printed by Begemot Decals, and I'm impressed that the clear carrier film is no larger than the printed areas, very precise printing indeed.

My sincere thanks to Modeller for this review sample!
