    Merry X'mas everybody,

    THAIPAPERWORK proud to present a newest release from modern series...C-130 "Hercules" a wish list from last poll at my website. dream come true today with 1/48 C-130 "Hercules" (i can not arrange parts of 1/33 Hercules to fit in A4 so i decide to do a 1/48 kit) kit come in 20 pages of all parts and 6 pages of instruction and 2 pages of history...total pages of this kit is at 29 pages (include cover).

    C-130 Hercules is a most use aircraft for airlift around the world. There are many C-130 service in many airforce around the world

    The C-130 Hercules primarily performs the intratheater portion of the airlift mission. The aircraft is capable of operating from rough, dirt strips and is the prime transport for paradropping troops and equipment into hostile areas. Basic and specialized versions perform a diversity of roles, including airlift support, DEW Line and Arctic ice resupply, aeromedical missions, aerial spray missions, fire-fighting duties for the US Forest Service, and natural disaster relief missions. In recent years, they have been used to bring humanitarian relief to many countries, including Haiti, Bosnia, Somalia, and Rwanda.

    Enjoy building C-130 as X'mas gift and with 32 inches wingspan will make you proud to hang it over ceiling. i think $10 for 32 inches wingspan is a reasonable price. you can purchase THAIPAPERWORK's C-130 direct at


    Thank you very much for all support. your support will make THAIPAPERWORK can release a monster like this C-130 again :)

    Hi all

    Nobi has done it again, another fantastic design and for buttons as well :shock:

    So after all the support that Nobi has given to us and the site with his free design's and help this is what I would like to do: -

    At the risk of driving Ron and Rick round the bend :lol: :lol:

    I will offer up as a first prize a copy of "Kartonowy Arsenal's Polikarpow I-16" and for a second prize anyone of Nobi's models of the second prize winners choice for the best build of his C-130!!

    I will ask Ron to add a section for this to the board.

    This is the way I would like to see this go: -

    Build the complete model (including the wheels)
    Build it as it has been designed, no add on's
    You will have until the LAST DAY OF FEB 2005 to post the finished model.

    A little more may get added to this but the basic idea is there :D

    This is not the second part to the aircraft competition its just my way of saying thanks to Nobi for all his hard work and support for US

    So get buying and building

    us around the bend? we are WAAAAAAAAAY past around the bend, why do you think we are still here :mrgreen:

    I should say, Nobi's designs make me want to ditch my trucks and start building planes.

    Hi Rick

    Glad to know Iam not the only one round the bend :lol: :lol:

    Its Nobi's models that gave me the bug to build aircraft, they are easy to build and cheap and to top it all if you do have a problem the guy is always around to help 8)


    What you have to do to win the first (I-16) and second prize (choice of Nobi's models) is to buy Nobi's C-130 and build it, once done post the photos on site with the other guys and girls who enter. A winner and runner up will be chosen (not by me or Nobi).
    They will then revice the prizes as listed.
    This must be done by 02/28/2005
    The model must be built as designed and not altered in any way.

    I already have the I-16 here waitting, it came in today from Lighthouse

    Hope this helps

    Hi Yaniv

    Why make the fw 190 wait, do both :p

    I have Nobi's C-130 and for $10.00 its a steal, a whopper of a plane. :shock:
    A good point as well is I think for the likes of Leif, myself and one or two others it would scale up great :roll:

    Have fun and we look forward to seeing your build

    Nobi, I want to purchase the new model, but I will be dipped in brown stuff if I can make your website work for me....everything I click just takes me to the login page, and there does not seem to be any way of actually creating an account, and nothing I try either adds the item to the basket or gets me past that page.

    Hi all

    Well time is going by and only ONE taker for the chance to win the I-16 and a choice of Nobi's other models.
    Iam surprised at that :shock:

    So if you have bought it why not build it and if you have not bought it, WHY NOT at $10.00 for this beast its a STEAL.
    To give an idea of how good the value of this bird is, for what I paid for the Fly Model C-130 I could have had six of Nobi's birds and still have change left over :lol:

    So come on boys and girls lets see some action???

    If you don't have it yet you can get it here: -


    Have fun and lets see some of those builds!!

    Only one month (31 days) to go before this one ends
    Time is up when the site clock reads midnight on the 02/28/05

    So as it stands if ONLY Yaniv and Bowdenja post there builds they will win first and second prize
    So come on boys and girls lets see some action???

    There is enough time still to build this model and enter

    If you don't have it yet you can get it here: -
