Some years back Panda was supposed to do a 1/72 C-17, and it even had a kit number listed.  Nothing ever came of it.  I can't see it myself.  For modelling purposes the kit is something of a bore.  They are all the same gray, with relevant national insignia,  usually toned down.

Well, there was the proposed BBJ-style derivative; not only could you arrive in your own private business jet, you could bring your transportation with you.

Alternatively, it would look great in FedEx markings.

Some very nice decals you linked there Robert.  The price is a bit daunting though.

Yeah! I know, but the Draw Decal stuff is top-notch plus you've got a big canvas to work on   -----

Thanks for doing the links better Jeff  :)

If I can find it, Chris Cooper did an Air New Zealand C-17 profile for me a while back...

...just the thing for uplifting all those Orcs, Elfs, Hobbits etc...

Sweet, almost enough to make me give 1/48 a try.

Almost bought an Italeri Mirage F-1 in 1/48 the other day but thought better of it.

Yep! might have to bend a bit too, I've got a few 1/48 kits of my very favorite aircraft and I'll have to get one of these.

The only 1/48 kit I ever built was a, from memory, Revell P-40 Warhawk for my younger brother it was fun and looked good but didn't last long before our adopted mentally disturbed brother tried to make it fly....... ::)

Maybe that sad memory is the source of my hesitation ref 1/48.  I do have a FJ-4A Fury and a Seahawk in the stash but haven't started either.  Maybe I could just reserve the scale for my alternate RAN FAA Whiffs.
