First Look

Here is the latest release from Caracal Models providing sixteen different markings options for the AMT => Italeri 1/72 KC-135R Stratotanker Part 2 kit. This set is really a superset of markings as you'll see below. The KC-135R has worn a variety of colors (all of them AMC Gray FS 36173) but they've been distinguised by some very nice markings. Let's take a look:

The aircraft presented in this set include:

  • KC-135R, 61-0318, 117 ARW/AL ANG
  • KC-135R, 59-1521, 168 ARW/AK ANG
  • KC-135R, 58-0079, 186 ARW/MS ANG
  • KC-135R, 63-7991, 155 ARW/NE ANG
  • KC-135R, 58-0060, 171 ARW/PA ANG
  • KC-135R, 57-1435, 151 ARW/UT ANG

This set includes all of the relevant airframe markings and even includes a set of airframe stencils and the underside command lights and alignment stripes. It just so happens that I have a KC-135R kit as well as a few other C-135 variants in kit form. According to the Caracal Models, there are only 300 copies of this set produced. Get your set before they're gone.
