E-Flite EC-1500

The plane looks somewhat like a...

I wrapped and lettered mine as a WV ANG ship from the 1950s. So far, I like this model a lot. Flies nice and handles our club grass runway with no issues.

Avios (HobbyKing) C-130

I think Hobby King is upping their game with the new Avios C-130. I was lucky enough to get to fly one and I think they are going to have a hit on their hands.

I like that camo. Good work.
I copied your panel line trick with the Sharpie. You can't tell from more than a couple of feet, it's just enough to make them stand out on the flight line.
