Wow!

What a fantastic scheme it is!

First time I think I see it modelled!

The Kuwaiti scheme is also smart by the way ;)

Very nice indeed! A bit pity that there is so many much cheep old passenger machines (converted to cargo) on the market, that concept of civil variant of C-17 was abandoned after production of this one piece...

Nice looking model. What is it like to build?

Thanks for the comment. Pretty straight forward kit with some filling and sanding required. Give it a try.

I'd certainly like to build a C-17, but preferably in /172 scale. 1/144 is a bit too small for my shaky fingers. Would love a C-124 Globemaster II, also in 1/72 scale but doubt we'll see it in injection molded form.

I think there is a resin kit available (Anigrand perhaps?) but I believe it demands a lot from the builder's skills and persistence.

If Kinetic were considering a mass-produced kit in 1/72 (as a contributor has suggested above), I'd be much desiring to get one.

Anyway, @Mark Strasser, your build is very nice!  A real break from the usual pale grey all-over schemes that most operators of the type use.

👍:goodjob:

This is a great rendition of the real aircraft - I always thought it would make a great model!

I helped load the Emir's S-92 into this a few years back. It looked identical to a military C-17A to me - it's even crewed by a hybrid USAF/Qatari Air Force crew.

Very, very impressive. Can I ask were they the kit decals or after market and where did you get the stand? Thanks, Billy

Thanks for the positive comment. The stand is a folding picture frame stand and I added a clear front stake. Just thinking out off the box.
