Another flash update to my RC-135S model -- during weathering, an almost complete process - I think this plane had a ligt weathering on uppersurfaces and some more on the undersurfaces due to the very poor weather conditions it was forced to operate.

Totally awesome!

Man, that is one sweet build! Forgive my ignorance, but why does it have one black and one "regular" wing? Does this have to do with tha pattern it flew during missions or something like that?

Again, congratulations for your fine workmanship!

Cheers,

Thiago

Many thanks Thiago,
the starboard upper wing is painted flat black to avoid any glare to the optical mission equipment located behind the 4 large portholes on fuselage (look at previous posts) .

Wow...

You should clean up any competition you enter with this one - if they have a hall big enough - that thing must be huge! Superb finish, superb detail. In awe!

Many thanks Brian,
this model should be an eye catching one (I hope so), it's big but smaller than my XB-70 AV/1, or A-50M "Mainstay" or the M-50 "Bounder" this one lagging behind the RC-135S and contending my workbench space .

Bye

Thank you many times, for me are simply many projects started and yours placed on ice. But if the motivation is there and all the parts have sometimes shopped, and it's finally here are a little further. they inspire me with their beautiful models so I also packs resist.

It looks great so far...

[linked image] We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy, and the rope from the Army.
On the seventh day while God rested, we overran his perimeter, stole the globe, and we've been running the whole show ever since.

Semper Fi, Don

Hi Don,
I would like to finish it but there is always something going wrong on this model !!!!!
While I was sprying the final semigloss coat on the underside some spillage drops from the airbrush bottle fell on the painted USAF logo and (typical defect of Gunze acrilic paints) melted the insigna blu logo with the ADC gray background !!!!!

This morning I repainted the whole wing section in ADC gray and tomorrow morning I'll paint the insigna blue logo (fingers crossed !!!) - Here the weather is almost tropical hot 36 C° !!!! so I've more or less 1 hour to work on my models and you already know my technical time !!!!

Ciao

Alberto

Wow...great job.

August 6 2013, 6:44 PM 

I've been around those a bit, up at Offut AFB as well as overseas in different places...really looks the part right there.

The 135 series of aircraft (to include the E-3, E-6 and E-8) can really be eye catching models for sure. I'd like to do a current version, with the CFM-56 engines.

Thank you for your kind comment and for sure you have a far better aircraft knwledge tha me - during the kit building I got the help of Jenning Heilig and some other H.S. friends to make the necessary changes to the kit parts .
Unfortunately Italeri did not reissue the RC variants kits of the 135 !!!!!

Bye

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
