Aviation Collectables Company is a multi-faceted company that produces aviation related books, prints and novelties. The C-130J Super Hercules book, many of their publications, covers nearly every detail from overall photos, open panels, interior photos and notes for scale modelers. The publication is in full color high resolution photographs as well as artist renderings. This subject covers the C-130J Super Hercules that is operated by the Italian Air Force. The book is split into two languages with typically half the page in Italian and the other half English.

The book begins discussing development of the C-130J covering the L-382J (longer -30 version) and the traditional length Hercules. Details of development and missions the C-130J performs is detailed with illustrations, photos and text. Operational use with the Italian Air Force is covered showing deployment photos, behind the scene photos including maintenance and full flight simulators in their training center.

The last few pages cover model kits and a review of the Italeri 1/72 C-130J model kit. Tips and comments are listed for the scale modeler along with paint colors, reference photos to help modelers build an accurate C-130J in Italian service. The last page are full technical of the C-130J and C-130J Super Hercules.

I would like to thank Casemates and IPMS/USA for this book to review. I highly recommend this book when tackling your C-130J build in Italian or any other livery.
