Hi Guys,

      I'm looking for a few kits and accessories for the AMT C-135 family.

 

Specifically:

AMT EC-135 "Looking Glass" Command Post kit

Steel Beach 72011 E-3B AWACS late nose wheels.

 

I'm looking to buy, and am in the US. Thanks, Fred K.

 

 

The only thing that I still need are the Steel Beach E-3B wheel set. Thanks, Fred K.

Yeah, I've been looking for two sets of those for my two KC-135R builds.  Not sure if they were ever mounted to the KC-135A/Es.

A quick search on the interweb shows that these wheels were used on both A's and E's.  You'd have to check the time period though.  Maybe one of the old 135 crew dogs would have more insight into when the wheels replaced the earlier ribbed/finned wheels.

Don, will the front wheels in the True Details sets #45007 & #72002 work? I have a set of one of these for my Nova Vac kit, but they are buried in the stash. Too hard to dig out at the moment.

Sure but they are the same style hub that comes in the kit.  See here.   https://www.squadron.com/1-72-True-Details-KC-135-TD72002-p/td72002.htm

 

PM sent Dutch.
