CD72115 / 72116 - 1/72 USAF KC-135A & E Stratotanker

Recommended Posts

CD72115 and CD72116 will be limited-run (250 pcs each) 1/72 sheets dedicated to USAF  in the older, overall light gray scheme.

CD72116 - 1/72 USAF KC-135E Stratotanker


These sheets will each have markings for 8 Stratotankers, but no national insignia or common stencilling - you will need to source these from the kit decals or from CD72070 (C-135 Family General Markings), which will be released at the same time.

I am watching, though I only have one KC-135A left (I think) and the NKC-135E?. Doing another tanker is more appealing I must stay and I am a fan of the bare metal and grey SAC schemes.


I'll be interested to see the artwork of these sheets with another 6 or 7 EC/KC/RC kits lurking in the stash

Almost here - I plan to release these in the January-February timeframe, at the same time as the general purpose set which will provide the stencilling and common markings.

Here is the draft for CD72115, the KC-135A sheet.  It still need some smaller markings (data blocks etc.) but should give you an idea of what is on the sheet. The -E sheet still needs a bit of work.

Are you going to reprint the generic KC-135 markings like yellow refueling stripe, doors, data markings & serials that were included in the three previous KC-135R sheets?  They may have to be modified for the Aircraft Gray scheme A/E/Qs though.  For instance, with the artwork above, I could see including two stencil sheets with each decal and upping the price a little to compensate.  I believe that many modellers would opt for the extra stencils so that more than one option could be built.  Or just print twice or three times as many stencil sheets and offer separately.   Just a thought. 

Kind regards,
