C-130 Planes

C-130 Hercules Air Transport Command
Introduced in the 1990 catalog and modeled after the Lockheed C-130, the No. 6275 Air Transport Command was 24½" in length with a 26½" wingspan. It featured four spinning propellers, three sets of landing gear that allowed the plane to roll, a cockpit entrance door and a rear access loading ramp. In addition, the No. 6275 set included 18 Vietnam era soldiers, an American flag with stand, a sheet of vinyl decal stickers and an Army Scout Vehicle which could be placed inside the cargo compartment. The company later retooled the mold to create the AC-130 Gunship (A stands for attack, C stands for cargo). The Hercules Defender, Black Eagle AND RCAF gunship versions were equipped with a pivoting chin turret below the nose, two missiles attached to the underside of each wing and three adjustable 30mm guns on the port side. These pieces were cast in a light grey plastic. The same gun was also used on the #739 Willys MD Jeep.

The C-130 and AC-130 were sold individually in a floor display box or included in a boxed set with detailed graphics on all sides. It was also briefly packaged in an open display box with an armored scout vehicle, 18 Vietnam Era soldiers, flag and decals already applied.

What did it cost in 1990?

I got one that Christmas. I think they were $20. Which is about $40 today after inflation.
