Description

When militaries want troops or materiel delivered anywhere in the world, the C-130 Hercules is often the aircraft tasked with the job. The turboprop cargo lifter has been doing that for more than 60 years and shows no sign of stopping. That longevity and versatility make it a popular modeling subject and I haven’t come across many better references that Duke Hawkins Aircraft in detail 009: Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules.

 

This premium 196-page softcover volume combines a discussion of the numerous Hercules variants with details photos of the aircraft broken down by section — wings, cockpit, flaps, aft fuselage, to name a few — and stunning inspirational photos of C-130s in action, as the subtitle says “flying with air forces around the world.” The paper is thick but has a satin finish that minimizes glare and the captions are detailed, clear, and well-written. Everything from the heft of the books when you pick them up to the quality of the photography and information in this book and the others in the series scream quality and will have you reaching for that Hercules kit you have in your stash.
