Hi to all my Hyperscalers friends,
after a long and troublesome period I'm back at work at my RC-135S Cobra Ball project .

After a lot of trials the rescribing of the auxiliary air intakes is barely acceptable due also to a fine hard granularity in the kit plastic parts that does'nt allow a regular motion of the scribing tool - I'll try to improve this later on .
Dryfitting the engine reverse sleeves I noticed the rear of the fan was rather poor, got in touch with the H.S. friends that have already helped me a lot in this project to get infos and a new search yielded me the pic I needed .

I started work to implement the rearmost fan disk visible under the reverse sleeves using an old moulding tool I found again after 25 years or so !!!

Painting started for the engine pods with the black starboard engines

Some panel hue changes on the black engines parts are barely visible in the pics -

I'll paint the engine pods completely before installing them on the airframe as I did for the A-50M Mainstay because for me at least, is a lot easyer to paint them individually than onto the airframe .

That's all for today !!!! many thanks for looking, any comment/critique/suggestion very wellcome and appreciated as usual .

Bye

Alberto
