I built this last year. A nice kit and good decal for an older 1/72 kit. Painting was a challenge due to finish issues, but I got her done. Tail markings are a bit generic but fairly representative of a 1960's-1970's tanker...

Really nice Tom, that scheme is so much nicer than the later all-grey low-vis. Where do you display that?

Thanks, Mike. It hangs from the ceiling in my den!

You did a wonderful job with your paintwork. Looks professional to my eye.

Thanks, PW. The paint didn't set right in the area of the US Airforce words and I ended up resanding it and working on getting the paint to blend decently. The next battle was obtaining new "US Airforce" decals as they were pretty scarce when I needed them. I have tons of them now!

Professional? I am not that good...the cell phone camera hides a lot! Lol
