Italeri 1/72 KC-135R Stratotanker, 100th ARW
This is the Italeri KC-135R built out of the box. I used a mixture of kit decals and those from a Wolfpak sheet. I attempted to build this (foolishly) as part of a club Blitz build over a weekend. I almost got there too. A couple of weeks later it was finished off. These ex-AMT tooled C-135 kits go together well with a little care. I added reinforcing in the wings to prevent wing droop and also reinforced the upper fuselage seam. That was the only real extra work I did on this build. One day the accompanying F-15D will be built to hang off the boom.
