1/72 C-130J Correction Kit
Ozmods C-130J Nacelle Correction Kit
  • move

by: Warren Inman [ WARRENI ]

The Correction kit comes with all the parts required to correct the nacelles, spinners and propeller blades used on the C-130J aircraft.
The kit comes in a top opening cardboard box with extra packing material to stop the parts rattling around in the box. The parts themselves are contained in resealable plastic bags and my set arrived with no damage at all to the box or contents. That can also be put down to the excellent packaging Ozmods use when sending their items.
The set comprises 4 nacelles, 4 cooling flaps, 4 spinners and 24 propeller blades.
There is little to no flash present and only the cooling flaps need to be removed from a pour stub.
I cannot comment on the accuracy of the original Italeri nacelles but can tell you that the propeller blades are not moulded in the correct feathered position used whenever the aircraft is dormant. Using this kit and Ozmods feathered blade alignment jig you will be able to correctly represent a C-130J sitting on the ground at rest quickly and easily.
SUMMARY
Highs: Very well molded with minimal flash.
Lows: None noted
Verdict: A must for all those building the Italeri C-130J.

I have been modeling for about 45 years on and off and have just started learning about weathering my AFVs etc. Started when I was about 3 or 4 and got to a peak of production in the late seventies with a Airfix or Matchbox kit every day or so at times. Most of those have gone but when I ...
