Description: Air Support for the Plastic Army Men has redeployed! The Tim Mee Hercules C-130 Gunship is once again proudly manufactured in the United States and available as this 27 piece set. Set includes the Hercules Gunship, 2 dozen M16 Soldier figures, an American flag with base, and a bonus M48 Patton Tank. The airplane is modeled after the Lockheed AC-130 and features spinning propellers, rolling wheels with metal axles, cockpit entrance door, rear access loading ramp, dual barrel rotating turret, and 3 pivoting machine guns. The wingspan measures 24.5 inches across, and the fuselage is 24.5 inches long and 10 inches tall to top of tail. The aircraft, tank, and soldiers are made from slightly stiff olive-green color HDPE plastic with a little flashing. The flag stands 2.75 inches tall with a black base, and sticker flag. The plane is approximately 1:48 scale, the figures 1:35 scale, and the tank 1:48 scale. The first version of this aircraft was produced by PROCESSED PLASTIC COMPANY (Tim Mee's parent company) in 1990 and modeled after the C-130 Cargo Plane. The tooling was later modified to create the AC-130 Gunship version seen here. The Hercules may be the most impressive army men vehicle of all time. Playset arrives packaged in a plain box optimized for shipping directly to you. These are real toys, meant to be set up, knocked over, picked up and played with for years to come. Snap-together assembly requires some hand strength, so adult assembly is recommended. You'll find an assembly video using a google search for 'hercules reissue assembly video'.
