FirstLook

 

The Aviation Workshop's latest release in the Premier Plus range covers just one subject in 1/72 scale - but what a subject!

This is a Boeing KC 135E adorned with a gigantic tiger's head on the port fuselage side. This is an interesting and unique way to break up the otherwise uniform Gunship Grey scheme of this big aeroplane.

Most markings, including low-viz stars and bars, high viz flags and NJ ANG tail flashes, are included. However, the instructions recommend that kit supplied wing walkways are used. This is a sensible and practical move to keep the size of the decal sheet (and therefore the price) down.

The decals are beautifully printed and in perfect register. They are produced in the USA by Microscale

The instructions maintain the same high standard. They are presented on four sides of A4 paper, and include four view drawings of this KC 135E.

The recommended kits are ESCI, AMT and Heller.

If you want the most eye-catching KC 135E model in the room, these decals will go along way to help you achieve your objective!
