Four .19 engines will fly on one
By Henry G. Edwards with Paul Del Gatto
Certainly you can't build this multi-engine model overnight or even over a weekend. What we prefer is the kind of project that can really be called model building. Ask anybody who has tried multi-engine designs, when it comes to flying there's nothing that can challenge the roar of two or more engines in synchronization; or that breathtaking moment when the model is released and it accelerates for a take-off.
The C-130 series began as a 1951 requirement for a military transport with Short Take-Off and Landing capabilities. The series was born as the YC-130 and performed well in the latter part of 1954 with its Allison three-bladed turboprop engines. With successes encountered throughout the war in Vietnam and furthermore in peacetime, the C-130 Hercules spawned a plethora of variants that would include special forces insertion, arctic patrol, meteorological research, communications, close-support and modernized variants of the base transport.
