C-133 Cargomaster
« on: January 07, 2017, 09:02:39 pm »
Kit got me looking around.....this is a neat little read with a cool pic of the Thor on the dollies.

And this build is amazing, although in 48th scale.

My flabber is totally gasted!  :o

He must have been out of his mind to even contemplate building that monster, and it only took 8 months from start to finish!!!

Are you planning on doing a similar job to the interior on your 1/72 version Cap'n?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

I've been to the Thor launch pads at Harrington and they are impressive.

That Cargomaster sure is one big 'ole machine!  :o

I recall seeing one on the ground at Brize Norton in the early 60s, and a truck was pulling a very long trailer out of the hold. The trailer seemed to go on for EVER, it was that long!
