  • HISTORY ASPECTS:
  • The USAF C-130 Hercules, tail number 01057, has a storied history as part of the Delaware Air National Guard, and its service has encompassed various conflicts and humanitarian missions. Known for its versatility and dependability, this aircraft has been a workhorse in the U.S. military's inventory.
  • After World War II, the U.S. Military required a modern-day troop and cargo transport aircraft to replace its aging mixed fleet of piston-engine aging aircraft. On August 23, 1954, the first C-130A "Hercules" took to the skies in what was heralded as the beginning of the most successful military turboprop transport to ever be conceived. The C-130 has been recognized alongside the venerable DC-3 as the world's most versatile aircraft, flying for more country's forces than any other aircraft.
  • The "Hercules" is capable of hauling more than 36,000 lbs. of payload over distances exceeding 3,800 miles. Its short field performance is truly amazing with ability to land and takeoff on unpaved, unprepared runway surfaces. As the years have progressed, Lockheed has made vast improvements to an already capable aircraft. As with most enhancements to aircraft, much emphasis has been placed on enhanced performance and more modern cockpit technology. Advanced weaponry has also become part of the C-130's duties.
  • Today's modern C-130 "Gunship" is one of the most feared aircraft in the skies. The popularity of the C-130 is prevalent the world over and can be seen operating from the frozen Antarctic to the hottest deserts of Africa and the Middle East. The "Hercules" can haul troops, passengers, cargo, livestock, outsized freight, or anything else that will fit in its dimensions. The C-130 has been manufactured in various fuselage lengths and has also been used as a civilian airliner/freighter (designated the L-100). The latest military version, identified as the C-130J model, now features the most modern cockpit technology available. Improved engines and multi-blade propeller design have brought it up to current standards. Having surpassed 60 years of production, the C-130J will carry the "Hercules" tradition well into the 21st century.
  • One of the most significant chapters in its history is its involvement in Operation Iraqi Freedom and the broader Global War on Terrorism. The C-130 provided crucial support for U.S. and coalition forces by transporting troops, equipment, and supplies into and out of theaters of operation. It often operated in austere and challenging environments, highlighting the aircraft's ability to adapt and overcome diverse operational conditions.
  • This 1:400 scale model, representing its service with the Delaware Air National Guard, is a tribute to its remarkable history. It captures the spirit of this versatile aircraft and its role in both conflict and humanitarian efforts. Whether you're a military aviation enthusiast or a collector of aviation memorabilia, this model is a testament to the enduring legacy of the C-130 Hercules. Own a piece of this history and celebrate the aircraft's contributions to both national defense and humanitarian missions.
