C-130J Paint Scheme Selection Help

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).

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

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