......as I believe a few T7.5 served in the RAF attached to various special units)


There were indeed, the Ferry Training Unit at RAF Benson had two of them, as well as a whole slew of standard T7s on their consist. The CO flew one of them, naturally.  ;D

I know this as I was there at the time.  ;D

They're going to need a 50000 gallon tanker full of Revell Contacta to put that KB-50 back together!  :o

On a semi-related note I stooped by the great Air Mobility Museum at Dover AFB on Wednesday Aug 15 to check on their KB-50 recently brought up from Florida.  I have now seen 4 of the 5 B-50 survivors in person.  This airframe is believed to be the oldest (by conversion date) airborne refueler to survive.

Neat to see the refueling pods and the unique doors on the aft fuselage. 

Just like a kit, but in 1:1 scale...















Wing pods



Never need an excuse to include the C-5...



Caribou, C-133, KC-135, C-5A, KC-97, C-124

When were they re-engined with the RB211-666, based on the - 535, with the 74” fan?
The slightly less than 90” fan casing certainly had a dramatic appearance.
 ;D  ;) :thumbsup:

Chinese made Tommy gun.

Transparent wings + transparent canopies gives a special feel of naturalness to the brew. Love those ones especially.  :wub:

A little something I picked up whilst working in Bratislava; a KP DH-88 Comet the RAF/International boxing :thumbsup:
And waiting for me at home, I hope 2x Special Hobby Meteor T7.5, one of which might join the RAF. (I mean in normal squadron service, as I believe a few T7.5 served in the RAF attached to various special units)
And Xtradecals 1Sqn 100th anniversary.

I just love that retro MFG2 badge and seem to remember it being included in the Airfix MRCA in the late 1970's (the one that had loadouts never actually seen in service).
