Veltro K-C.205 tanker, blue : hybrid aircraft/animals e.a.
« Reply #1665 on: August 28, 2019, 07:42:08 PM »

I had this 1/32 Veltro for quite a long time, and suddenly knew how to use it
to make it a buddy-refuelling aircraft (with a boom from a KC-97)





the arrangement is slightly asymetric, because of the tail wheel, but nothing is perfect  ;)

I have to say that the 48th scale wings mated to the C-135 fuselage do work well in appearance and fit.  Is that the 1:72nd scale C-135 kit from Italeri/AMT-Ertl?

I can only concur with my esteemed colleagues here and add that my mom would've congratulated you on the magnificent color choice as well.

Definitely a different look for the DC-3/C-47 :smiley:

Beautiful!!  Reminds me of a tail-dragger version of a McDonnell Model 220.
