    Currently an member of the VMGR-152 and in search of any and all info about the history of kc-130f model 149808 "BOB" for a brief summary to send to the Marine Corps musium for their concideration for my donation of a large scale model of the afore mentioned aircraft.

    I am most interested in in the history of the a/c while it was attached to VMGR-152, especially during it's operations in Vietnam, but all info is appreciated.

  1. I appreciate what i have recieved so far. in a few days i will try to post up a few pictures of the model we restored. from what i was told, the model was originally a wind tunnel model and was given to VMGR 152 at one point with the paint scheme and tail number of aircraft 149808. it was in rough shape to say the least. the pods had fallen off and half the props had blades broken off from falling from where it hanging. even the belly of the model was scared and the nose and wing tips had dents and other disfiguring marks. it will be some time before i am able to finish the history br
  2. I am compiling data and stats and some personal stories if possible about the KC-130F model ser. 149808 for a historic brief sheet to present to the Marine Corps museum that will accompany a 6' wing span model of the aircraft that a fellow Marine and myself restored. The info gathered will aid in the concideration of the acceptance of the model as an offical donation to the museum.
