Hi to all my friends,
I'm back here with my RC-135S CobraBall project after quite a long time, but it was a very busy period for me including a lot of garden work

Just for an idea .
On my modelling workbench I shifted priority from RC-135S to M-50"Bounder" to test a new way to get a good NMF I learned here on H.S. Plastic Pics .

Now I restarted work on RC-135S and with the help of a fellow modeller of the modeling club to which I belong found a way to improuve a lot the appearance of the ramp concrete slabs of the model display base and add some better details .

The pic below comes from International Air Power Journal Vol. 8 and is used here for pictorial reference only:

for sure I'm not a dioramist but this model required an appropriate display base .

Here are some pics of the model almost ready for decalling process (I've already glossed up a section of the black right wing were the red USAF marking will be)
