Been fiddling with this one for a few months now. Long story short I bought it as a bagged kit for a buck sans the large spinning radar dome and decals. As I started to build it I realized that it was also missing the engines and engine pylons. I thought I might be able to track down some Minicraft parts from their series of 707/VC-137/E-3/E-8 kits to complete it. I got the engine sprues from a nice fella on ARC and another gent sent me his leftover parts and decals from the Minicraft E-8 JSTAR kit. It’s not 100% accurate (as was pointed out to me) but still, it’s been a fun build. And I have saved one kit from certain doom via the trash can. I’m close to painting now as I need to add a few small antennas and check a few seams. It’s for me, not a contest so go easy LOL!
