Hi, in particular to all my friends that very generously helped and supported me with this long running project with specific pics, details infos and much more!!!!

I'm back at you with an update of my RC-135S building project, I know it's long overdue but heavvy health problems in my family and the almost tropical hot weather here in north-western Italy kept me away from my workbench .

Anyway here are some pics of my RC-135S with all wheels first time on its display base :

the airframe is still engineless because I'm painting the engines pods separately and puttting them on the airframe later as I did on my A-50M .











Now it starts looking like a Cobra Ball, at least for me !!!!










I implemented the 2 underwing lights that AMT completely forgot






Here are the starboard engine pods during the painting process















and the engine reverser sleeves ready to be installed, the reverser details on the engines are still unpainted .



That's all for now !!!!

As usual your comments, suggestions and critiques are very wellcome and appreciated !!!

Ciao a tutti/bye to all !!1

Ciao Fabrizio,
ormai dovresti esserti abituato ai dettagli sui miei modelli !!!!
Purtroppo non sono un mago dell'aeropenna per cui non riusciro' a raggiungere i livelli di finitura di tanti modelli presentati qui' ||||

Hi, Brian,
thank you for your kind comment, unfortunately I can work out lots of details but I'm not an "Airbrush Master" like you, Don, Serge, Giampiero ..... just to name the firsts coming to my mind - so my forecast for the painting phase will be a long troublesome process ........ let's keep the fingers crossed !!!!!

Ciao

Alberto

Despite the heat

As usual, your work is fantastic. I have to agree, it's starting to look more like a Cobra Ball now...

Keep up the great work!

Hi Don,

many thanks for your interest on this project of mine .
I can deal well with the hardware implementation, but I'm far behind you (and several friends here) in airbrushing skill so I fear it'll be a troublesome phase, anyway I'll do my best !!!!

Ciao

It doesn't make my heart race though. We have to avoid that. Hope you are doing well.
