So that's what they are calling themselves these days, seems it's an offshoot to Click2Detail.

And the price is? I'm not going to tell you. You need to go to the website below. Please first sit down.

Kit details are here: https://www.southernskymodels.com.au/RAAFKC-30AMRTTAirbusA330-5580.html

I'm thinking of using my rebate and getting one, but as the RCAF are re-equipping with A330's to replace the  aging and wearing out CC-150's, it will be in RCAF colours  ;)

Some months ago the Feds announced that they are only looking at Airbus MRTT's, but I also read a while ago, they bought a bunch of surplus A330's from Air Canada to get them out of the sh!t. My guess these will get converted, just like the CC-150's were.

There is this article from 2020 from a Swiss based publication:

https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/news/98614-canadian-air-force-may-replace-cc-150s-with-ex-civilian-jets

Haven't seen anything newer. But hey the CAF/RCAF have been buying used starting with the 707/CC-137 in 1970.

I had a good read of them Greg, they don't say anything about the reported ex-Air Canada aircraft that the Government was looking at, which is referred to in the story Carl attached. I'd like to see 'brand-new' MRTT's myself.

I've just placed an order with Click2Detail, the payment went through to Titan Models.  I didn't go crazy as I want to see what they produce before I jump in for a complete kit. So I've got the 737 air stair and the Shuttle rear fairing on order, in 1/72 scale.

Click2Detail have a number of 1/72 engine nacelles available, like engines for C-5 Galaxy's and 747's and Gulfstream Speys to name a few. Titan has choices of engines for the 777 (three) which i'm guessing could be bought as stand-alone items. There's even engines for a C-141 (plus pylons) ---

So, I've got two 1/72 Shuttles in the stash, one half built. Box says it's a Revell kit, Click2Detail says to use Revell kit. Guess what, I don't have a Revell kit, they are both Monogram. Checking ScaleMates and there's no link between the two Shuttle kits and they're different.

So a Revell Shuttle arrived last week, and it is quite different to the Monogram kits.

When I posted, it was $289.99. With two options: Upgraded Landing gear and bomb bay each @ $75.  Now the LG option is gone but the price is gone up so ipso de fatso, the LG upgrade must now be part of the base kit?

I've noticed the site seems to change from visit to visit. I was looking on Click2Detail's website at all their bits and pieces you can buy especially at the 747 wheel bays and landing gear in 1/72, then went on the Titan page and I'm sure it wasn't showing the C-5 landing gear on the home page when I was on there a week ago, but now it does. Same when I was looking at the Voyager and MRTT pages, I fairly sure I saw a complete wheel bay + u/c set in one photo and thought 'that's what I need for my BAe844 project'. Week later there nothing showing that ----

As an aside, Click2Detail is Titan, or Titan is Click2Detail, so maybe the thread title should reflect that. How do I know, when I bought the Space Shuttle tail fairing and the 737 air stair off Click2Detail a short while ago, the payment went through Titan Models.
