KC-10 or KC-135 boom plans or dimensions?

Recommended Posts

I’m planning to make a couple aerial refueling dioramas in larger scale. I’m only going to model the receiver and a portion of the boom or drogue. I am planning for the boom to use a 1/48 F-16 as the receiver. 


My plan is the 3D print the lower portion of the boom given its some what odd shape, but need to model it on a computer first.  Then I’ll add some scratch built details once I have the main foundation set. 


Does anyone have 2D plan views, cross sectional information, dimensions, or even good orthogonal pictures? All things being equal, I would pick the KC-135 as being more trypical as a tanker for tactical birds, but ultimately would go with whatever I can get better dimensional data for.
