The C-130 Hercules is a four-engine turboprop military transport aircraft designed and built by Lockheed. The C-130 was originally designed as a troop, medical evacuation, and cargo transport aircraft. The versatile airframe has found uses in a variety of other roles, including as a gunship (AC-130), airborne assault, search and rescue, scientific research support, weather reconnaissance, aerial refueling, maritime patrol and aerial firefighting. It is now the main tactical airlifter for many military forces worldwide; over 40 models and variants of the Hercules serve with more than 60 nations.
This specific C-130 model is the HC-130H variant painted in the United States Coast Guard paint scheme. This variant was an early model used for combat search and rescue.
This handcrafted model is painstakingly molded from pressure cast composite resin by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.

I ordered this for my fiance, who is a CG C130 Pilot. He loved it! It is nicely made and comes packaged well. I would certainly recommend PilotMall to others!
