  1. Minicraft is to release 1/144th Boeing KC-135A Stratotanker - ref.14707 - & EC-135C "Looking Glass" - ref.14709 Source: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/blog/1509254 V.P.
  2. Boeing KC-135E Stratotanker 314th ARS, Air Force Reserve Command, Mather AFB, California Seen at Mildenhall, May 1989 It was the 'Foxy Lady' nose art that caught my attention during a visit to Mildenhall in May 1989 (probably the arrivals day for Air Fete 89 but can't quite remember!). This KC-135 was sitting in a good position for photography. It wasn't until 2001 that I got around to building the model, and at the time had my own photos as reference. I also had a very informative article from Scale Models magazine on the subject of 707 and derivatives fuselage lengths and wing types, including suggested methods of shortening the old Revell 707 kit. Time has moved on and as I brought the model down from it's attic resting place I was unable to locate neither my photos nor the article, which I had intended to scan and post here. However, to my surprise a simple Google search on 'Foxy Lady KC-135' came up with a photo of that aircraft on that day, which I have now included here! One day maybe I will find the magazine article and will scan and post it if/when I do. Meanwhile on with the pics. The Foxy Lady nose art was hand painted by the way and I haven't included a close up of it because it becomes too obvious that it was! The real thing on that day in 1989:
  3. All: I thought it best to illustrate what I've been discussing elsewhere by use of illustration. As engineered, the original AMT/ERTL KC/EC/RC-135 kit has a dihedral problem--too little of it, to be precise. The way you can tell is by looking at the built model in profile and realizing that the outboard engine should be a good deal higher off the ground than it is, and that the wing tips should come up to the level of the cockpit, even when the plane is sitting on the ground. To correct this will require some patience and risk-taking. Good: the kit has soft plastic, which means it's pliable. Bad: the kit has soft plastic, which means that if you try to bend the wings without prepping them first, you'll create all kinds of distortions, especially in the trailing edge and the airfoil. To start with, here is your critical infrastructure. It consists of parts 21, 49, 22, and a portion of the floor assembly. Using an extra kit, I cemented two part 21's back-to-back and sanded them to a constant surface so that they would provide added surface area for the wing. As molded, part 21 imparts dihedral to the wing, but probably not enough for what you'll need. I used a hobby knife to cut away the underside of the part and increase its angle relative to the horizontal. I also added an extra bulkhead to prevent part 102 from distorting where it meets the forward fuselage:

  5. Singapore Stratotankers (KC-135's) + Turkey & Chile 1:72 Miliverse As well as being the mainstay of the USAF Air-2-Air refuelling capacity the KC-135 also provides this capability to other countries air forces around the world. These include Republic of Singapore, Turkey, and Chile. These decals from Singapore based Miliverse give the modeller a chance to represent one of these countries KC-135s. The decals come on 3 major sheets. One contains only black lettering, the second national markings and tail flashes, and the third the main airframe markings including colours and metallics on the same sheet. The decals look excellent, well printed, colour dense and have minimal carrier film. Conclusion These decals will help the modeller make a good looking, and different KC-135. Highly Recommended.
