1/144 KC-135 refueling a B-2 Spirit Bomber
I uploaded a few WIP pics of this little diorama a few months ago and after languishing on the shelf for a few months, I decided to finish the build. I don't normally build anything smaller than 1/72, but these two at 1/144 were the perfect size as they are pretty large airplanes to begin with. The KC is molded by Hobbycraft and it fit together very nicely. The B-2 was a total surprise. It's a Revell snap-together kit and the fit was awesome. Revell also captured the shape and proportions very well, too. The only modifications I made to the models were the mounts and the refueling port on the B-2. I used a surgical K-wire to mount the B-2 to the ebonized solid walnut base. I used Mr Paint for both planes and finished off the B-2 with Mr Paint's Have Glass varnish. I also used after market decals on the KC.
