Specific Item Information: The C-130 has been one of the most effective transport and cargo carrying aircraft in history. First deployed in 1957, the C-130 has been continuously up-dated and evolved into a virtually new aircraft design with markedly enhanced capabilities. The C-130 has been adapted to serve a variety of missions for the U.S. Air Force going far beyond the original transport design.

This 1/144 scale model represents the WC-130J assigned to 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron "Hurricane Hunters". These aircraft make up more than 95 percent of the total flying missions operating from Keesler AFB in Mississippi.

This kit features new engine and propeller tooling to represent the latest C-130 in service. The kit also includes recessed panel lines, visible cargo hold, opening rear cargo door and position-able landing gear and new decals by Cartograf will include markings for 2 403rd AW USAF aircraft.

Markings included in this kit are: U.S. Air Force Reserve, 403rd AW, 2003; U.S. Air Force Reserve, 403rd AW, 2010

Road Name History:
The United States Air Force (USAF) is the aerial and space warfare service branch of the United States Armed Forces and one of the seven American uniformed services. Initially part of the United States Army, the USAF was formed as a separate branch of the U.S. Armed Forces on 18 September 1947 under the National Security Act of 1947. It is the most recent branch of the U.S. Armed Forces to be formed.
