Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker
My Stratotanker.
About this creation
The Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker is an aerial refueling military aircraft. It was the US Air Force's first jet powered refueling tanker. The Stratotanker was initially tasked to refuel strategic bombers, but was also used to extend the range and endurance of tactical fighters and bombers. Despite increased maintenance costs, studies conclude many of the aircraft could be flown until 2040. After a controversy between the USAF, Airbus and Boeing, the aircraft will be replaced after about 80 years by the Boeing KC-46.

Nice! My dad used to fly these, and I think they're awesome. This is a great creation that captures the figure really well! 5 stars

Excellent MOC! I worked on KC-135s back in the late 1970s, and you've done an awesome job on it. Could you please post the LDD file, so I can build myself one? Peter

Ahhh, there are the engines I am used to seeing. Too bad the AWACS will probably never get those.

The front indeed is awesome and a very effective, impressive looking technique for making an aircraft nose section! Much better than many of your previous attempts in my opinion. Keep it up like this, Felipe. I think this definetely is a way to go! Best regards, Steffen

Another very fine plane. The way you've done the front is particularly effective.
