The RAF C-130J’s are complete and sent for inclusion in the MAIW Download Hangar this morning. There are 13 of the long fuselage models (C4’s) and sadly only the 2 remaining short bodies (C5’s). The models include doors open/closed, refueling probe/no probe and tanks/no tanks options. The paint work was quite interesting to do, with quite a few panel colour variations and especially the Mylar anti-stone film applied to the fuselage under side, rear lower cargo door and to one degree or another to the fuselage sides.

A C4 model without a probe and missile warning sensors on the rear fuselage was also needed for ZH866 which belongs to the Heavy Aircraft Test & Evaluation Squadron (206 Sqn) which is headquartered at Boscombe Down, but the aircraft itself is based at Brize Norton. It carries the special 100th anniversary tail paint:

No scenery is included because choices are somewhat limited, particularly for FSX and P3Dv4. However flight plans are included for the 15 aircraft and these should work with whatever scenery is used provided the parking spots are of the right size and type.

P3Dv4 scenery of RAF Brize Norton is currently in development by Paul and Matt and I was pleased to have been sent a “work in progress” version to try the C-130’s. Here are a couple of screen shots with the added Hercs:

I’ll make a start on the Canadian packages next.

At least with the C5s it won't take somebody too long to paint up the 2 going to Bahrain and the 1 going to Bangladesh. Others will be sold as well, so there will be some further use for that model.

Plus there is always a retro package option.

ZH880, ZH883 and ZH887 are now retro paints. The only paints I'm intending to do now are for the Canadian (part done) and Italian C-130 packages. After that, I'll release the generic models to add to what's been done already, plus a comprehensive paint kit. Would you care to contribute a paint or two yourself ado4567?

For the RAF C-130's I know there is no scenery for Brize Norton yet, but does anyone know of a AFCAD for the default scenery (P3D) I can use until the scenery is finished?

Has anyone else heard that the Spookies are near retirement? They got back from their last deployment.

I haven't but as there are 52x Ghostriders ordered plus the fact that the USAF is updating all of the Hs being kept - including 8 bladed props and new engines- it doesn't really surprise me.

Sounds like a sensible money saving idea.
