Lockheed KC-141 Starfueler
« on: May 18, 2020, 09:09:24 pm »
The Dragon 1/200th one has been dragged out after a long time in the drawer. The bits from the Hasegawa 1/200th KC-10A will be used, boom has already been assembled. The decals will be the difficult part here, I hate doing looooong fuselage stripes. Might just mask and paint if I can get the right colour.

Sounds a very good idea, and I bet it'll look good when it's done.

It reminds me that my 1/72 Nova C-141B is sitting on my bed at home, a long way away at the moment, but.....

I prefer to stick to the classical shape for inflatable dolls... :rolleyes:  ;D
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

Looking forward to this. Centerline boom or offset a bit to clear the ramp area?

It was the only space in the room large enough to take the MASSIVE box that the Nova kit comes in.

Too much fiddling. Ramp has been puttied up, maybe I'll write something into the back story.

Duct tape across the ramp doors, that'll do it.  :thumbsup: ;D

I always wanted to build a AWACS version after seeing a proposal for the C-133.
