CD144021 - 1/144 C-133 Cargomaster

Recommended Posts

This will be a limited run 1/144 sheet to replace the pitiful Roden kit decals.

It looks like there were some that were painted ADC Gray?

Some very good stills here; showing an over the wing inspection with detail shots of the top surfaces / walkways. Note the area with emergency life rafts right at the aft wing root - I will depict these area with detailed markings:

Wow! Never seen that pic before. Had no idea any were anything other than natural metal. I love all things ADC grey!

I designed a killer sheet for this kit last night, and will finalize the layout sometime next week; on time for the June/July batch of releases.

Really appreciate all the attention you’re giving USAF heavies in 1/144!

This is kind of cool - I will see if I can spare some space for it:

12 options, covering almost every interesting scheme ever worn by a C-133 Cargomaster. 

 

There is a second, all-black sheet with walkways and trim lines; as well as a set of digits to allow you to build almost any USAF Cargomaster.

Looks like the FAR option leverages a MAC/MATS tail band; is there a blue patch to apply before the white FAR lettering goes on?

That option was a late night addition - I will tweak the design to add an element that will integrate the white FAR and a blue patch.

Hi Kursad,

 

Any chance you could add the serial number and nose number for the C-133 that is still sitting at the former Chanute AFB in Rantoul, IL?  Serial number is 56-2009 and the nose number is "2009".  Spent alot of time in my youth hanging around this bird as my dad worked at the base for over 25 years.  I've included a link to the latest pictures of this bird.

I hope you can accommodate!

 

Thank you,

 

Ron Young

Hi Ron,

 

I already sent the design to be printed, but the sheet includes two blank yellow/blue number panels and the second (not yet shown) black insert will have a full set of digits, so you should be able to replicate this aircraft (or almost any USAF C-133 for that matter).

Killer sheet Kursad.   Ordered my kit for this sheet now just waiting to receive it.   Can't see building the Welsh vac kit when injection is available.

Nah, I’m just too cheap to buy the Roden kit! 😄
