Hello folks. I’m a new member and looking for help. I served 6 years in the US Marine Corps infantry and 8 years flying helicopters for the US Army. I had twin cousins who flew for the Air Force. My one cousin, AF Capt. Ronald Fagan, was killed in AF aircraft #64-0532 in 1978. I build scale models as a hobby and have always wanted to build Ronald’s aircraft. I was hoping someone in this group could help with this memorial project of mine. I’m trying to accumulate all the info I can on the markings and camo paint scheme of his aircraft. I want it to be as accurate as possible. I thank anyone who can help me in this effort! Thanks!

IN 1978 the paint scheme would have been "Europe One". Contact WRALC office of public relations ,with your request, and they can get the data that you will need.

Can anyone help this guy? No pics in the DB, and nothing on my frequented sites. I even googled the the SN and could not find any pictures. Can any C-130 guru's point him to an image of a similar vintage??

Lars Olausson uses the term "lizard" for the paint scheme , but I don,t think that's a T.O. nomenclature.
