This is a 1/48 Italeri C 130H kit. I depict it as a C 130B, Republic of Singapore Airforce (RSAF) 122 sqn aircraft as it looks like in the early eighties.

The paratroop door windows were changed to the square version using clear plastic sheet.

In addition, I've installed miniature bulbs to the cockpit and the cargo compartment. Have to be careful not to light it up too bright or it will be out of  "scale". The wooden crate contains the batteries, which power up the lights when in contact with the floor board.  

Crew entry door details were scratch build using K&S brass rod & tube and scrap plastic. 

Using printable decal sheet on ink-jet printer  for RSAF insignia and dry decal for the wordings.
