About Charles King (ti)

Charles King hails from Sweden. He has been interested in modeling since he was 12; though there was other interest that took priority at the time, he would eventually fall into the modeling soon enough. Not until recent,in 2002 that his interest was rekindled. While browsing the Internet, he ca...


Thanks guys. McNeilly, it was/is intended for a dio, but I had not gotten the time to start on it. The concept of the dio is to have a M113 or a M923 truck or even a Man 8x8 load the CLT dolly on a C130 using just the cargo bay as part of the dio. Obviousely, the whole plane would be a problem making it almost impossible because I would need a huge dio to dispaly it. So, I intended to just model the cargo bay. Now since there are no 1/35 scale I had to go to the next thing that offered something close to the scale ; and that is a 1/33 scale version made in paper. So I bought a 1/33 scale C130 paper model which I will eventually build when I get the time. It'll be my first so I'm not really looking forward to it as I dread the outcome of it. Oh well, time will tell.

Excellent Charles. I always like your fresh and original subjects. What do you use for the small decals? Will be interesting to see how the aircraft-loading scene turns out. Could be a possible shadow box idea ... actually looking out from the cargo area, to the back side of the open aircraft, where the dolly is being loaded into. A night scene with some internal lighting maybe!!

Miloslav than you again for those pics. I love'em. Thanks Frank. Always glad to hear from you. . The decals I took from some model railroading set that I had in my stash. BTW, your tips sound very interesting. I will definately consider that particular scenerio you mentioned. Very creative. Thank you for that.
