Details

Lockheed C-130 Hercules N929NA: In the early 1960s the USAF wanted a STOL (Short Take Off and Land) version of the C-130 Hercules to be used as a prototype for the planned C-130C STOL. The test aircraft, NC-130B 58-0712 (L/N 3507), was fitted with two additional prototype T-56 Jet Engines.  The aircraft unfortunately did not perform to expected levels, and the project was cancelled after only 23 hours of flight testing.

 

The NC-130B was reallocated to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and assigned to NASA's  Johnson Space Center in 1961. Given the serial number N929NA, the Hercules was flown to do further tests on the Boundary Layer Control System in 1961, and then again from 1963 to 1967.

 

This 1:48 scale model consists of 35 pages that include detailed instructions and assembly diagrams ,along with full colour, richly-detailed parts.  The finished model has a 33" wingspan, and includes long-range fuel tanks and detailed landing gear components. Also included are optional parts for opened engine inspection panels.

 

Paper Model Details:  over 300 parts on 28 pages with illustrated instructions and building tips. Model includes: recessed landing gear wells, detailed landing gear,
optional wing fuel tanks, and historically-accurate paint and markings scheme.
Fuselage bulkheads and joiner strips.  Complete design by Dave Winfield. Degree of Difficulty: 4/5. If you enjoy building this paper model, please contribute a review!
