Wiggi Posted July 18, 2020 Share Posted July 18, 2020 Dear all, I always wanted to build a Vietnam ear RC-135M So it is no surprise that I have the AMT RC-135 kit in my stash. Unfortunately the Vietnam specific “M” version has some fairings at the rear sides. After a lot of time I found some on Shapeways and ordered them. In my eyes thze shape matches the picture available and the fit is probably much better than some of the kit parts. Here you can find two picture of a test fit: https://www.dropbox.com/s/w2luxs7s477jmh3/IMG_0610_s.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/nkavvo821ejuial/IMG_0612_s.jpg?dl=0 Please note that the parts have just been glued into place without any pressure or sanding to improve fit. Now that I have the parts another problem surfaces. I will need decals! The pictures which I could find show them with and without SAC- milky way. And some other details are also unclear. For example, did they had the crew names painted on? One picture shows a "letter box" above the entrance hatch, but this also could be the emergency procedures instructions. Does anybody know about decals available or could help with further information? Any help is highly appreciated! Many thanks in advance and stay healthy! Wiggi Quote Link to post Share on other sites
