Hi Guys, i am currently converting the 1/48 Italeri C-130J to a Harvest Hawk, i have all of the conversion parts i need and i am working my way through all the differences and missing areas form the kit, this is the build thread.

What i really need to clarify are the number of AN/ALE-39 flare dispensers located under each side of the nose behind the nose wheel wheel. I have one account telling me there are 4 and another saying that there are only two.
I have this image and it looks to have space for 4, 2 each side.

This is an image taken from a Harvest Hawk and it does look big enough for 4.

This is an AC-130U and you can clearly see the horse shoe fairing is much narrower and there are only 2 dispensers located per side.

I have scanned the web high and low with no luck, does anyone have any images of the flare arrangement in this position for a C-130J or a KC-130J, the fairing is the same from all the images i have seen so hopefully the number of cartridges will be.
I have the resin ALE-39 dispenser but before i go cutting holes in the shell i really need some clarification, a good overview of all the dispensers would be great though i have good imagery for the armpits that just leaves the inboard pylons, tail and the nose ones already mentioned.

I would be grateful for any help here.
