Italeri 1/72 and 1/48 kit problems
Main problem with kit is an error in fuselage section located in front of the wings. C-130 modeled by Italeri is short version of Hercules. It looks that manufacturer used scale drawings of long version and just squeezed fuselage section to fit length of short version.
It results with to short engines and fuselage undercarriage sponsons. Attack Squadron has already released correct length engines and has prepared to release corrected sponsons.
