Hi to all Visitors,

here is a new update to my RC-135S Project .

Engines - I cut away the "hump" from the kit inboard pylons and I'm reshaping the pylons with scrap palstic - also I'm preparing some surgery to remove the nacelles front sections fill the voids at the interior, paint and reassemble the nacelles as per the good suggestion of a Fellow HyperScaler .









Center wing lower section - opened up the second air intake for the conditioning system - added struts to detail the main landing gear bays .







Main landing gear wheel bays - I detailed the best I could the bay interior, it's not 100% exact but it should look "busy" enought with the main doors closed - quite strange I could not find pics of the right bay and of the rear bulkhead, KC-135 in Detail and Scale also shows the left bay and front bulkhead only - any help very wellcome .









Here is my work-bench ( a bit cluttered !!!)





And here is the display and restig place for my Cobra Ball











That's all for now .

As usual any comment/suggestion/critique very wellcome and appreciated !!!!

Bye

Grazie Giampiero, I designed the display cabinet myself, it weights more than 400 Kgr. and at present has a useful display surface of 8 square meters, 2 more floors can be added to get a maximum of 12 sqm. - it's air tight to minimize the dust problem !!

Ciao
