C-130J Paint Scheme Selection Help

Post by decaff_42 » Sun Nov 04, 2018 9:13 pm

I'm working on a small C-130J / C-130J-30 / LM-100J pack and I'd like some suggestions for paint schemes given the following guidelines:

(1) C-130J / -30 and LM-100J Models only. No AC-130Js.
(2) Actual paint schemes, not FSX or What-ifs
(3) No complex decals (like this one for example)

I'd like to do one or two paint schemes for the following services: (EDIT: to clarify I'd like suggestions from each of these services. Looking to do a total of about 6-10 paint schemes.)
(1) USAF
(2) USN/USMC
(3) RAF (Paint Scheme #1)
(4) IAF (Paint Scheme #1)
(5) USCG (Only Paint Scheme)

Primarily I'm looking for good USAF /USN/USMC paint schemes but I'm open to picking one more scheme from another country if it looks nice.

My vote goes to any USAF/USMC scheme and the IAF scheme you linked above (I am a bit partial to the country of my birth ;), plus the Hindi lettering woud be a nice little challenge).

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN DAL, I landed AT DAL. On the other hand, I did land in Dallas.

Please, add RAAF & RNZAF paint shemes!

That RNZAF C-130 is an H model, not J.

Despite this, the RNZAF are looking at the C-130J as an option to replace the current fleet of C-130H aircraft. So we could be getting the J sometime in the near future.

French Air Force also have quite nice dark color. I wanna see them too.
And I will also suggest USAF C-130J from Yokota AB. Yokota is one of the most biggest and busiest air base in Asia and it is very popular among Japan and South Korea.

South Korea also operate C-130J-30 but its camo is little bit painful and we, Korean, wanna take that by ourselves XD

More about me:
-I'm a student in an IB school (get up early, most of the time at 5:00-5:10am, commuting everyday, 1h10m from my house to school). The commuting is almost end now I think.
-My future goal in 2 years time is to be enrolled into EasyJet generation pilot training. Wish me luck ;) Later on, I want to fly the Emirates A380 after 2-3 years flying the A320 :D

By any chance if you have Instagram, please drop a follow on @rv_aviation02 . Appreciate that!

That Oman camo scheme looks sweet. I didn't think any J models had camo like that. :D
