The C-133 with Thor is around the 30 mark, which is very good for the size of it.

really tempting to get one and put it in RAF markings, or to really whif-out and replace the Thor with a Blue Streak.


DO it!  :thumbsup:

You can get a 1/144 Blue Streak on Shapeways.

Strewth, the 3D missile costs more than the C-133 kit.  :o

I have seen a few line drawings of a C-133 with a rotodome on the upper fuselage so an AWACS version would be an alternative build.

Use an AWACS radome but pattern the supporting structure after that supporting the E-2 radar used on the AEW version of the C-130?

Well I did try that out in 1/72 scale on the Convair RB-36H but it looked a bit small in comparison to the E-3 rotodome besides I didn't have the stand for it from the Airfix/Heller Boeing E-3A/C kit.  That's why I chose the Cammett BAe Nimrod AEW.3 radomes.

Captain, that is gorgeous!
The best memory I have of a C-133 was one day here at Prestwick, a beautiful sunny day as one broke into the circuit, against a blue sky, over the house as I was heading out to school. Sadly not RAF!

I don't think I've EVER seen a C-133, and worse, never heard those 4 x T-34s, which was apparently a never to be forgotten sound. :(
