DECALS: Not applicable
REVIEWER: Scott Van Aken
NOTES: Resin for C-130.

This neat little resin set is for current C-130s that are equipped with the Defensive Infra-Red Counter Measures system. This neat little system has an IR detector that locates incoming missiles that use IR homing and then targets them with a laser that effectively blinds the system and makes it think it is off course. One mostly sees these on the MC-130 version, but they are appearing more and more on other aircraft.

This set includes both fairings for the rear of the aircraft. Molding is quite well done and after a bit of clean-up, the set is easy to install. The instructions, aside from being interesting reading, offer placement information.
