Caracal Models CD 144004: C-135 General Purpose Markings

Units: Various




Scott Van Aken

Caracal Models has produced a very useful sheet for those who like to model the 1/144 C-135 and variatints. The sheet is designed for the Minicraft kits and while some of them may fit the old Revell KC-135A kit, be advised that this oldie is actually 1/139 scale so these markings will be a bit undersize.

Here is what we have:

Windshield markings to correct the inaccurate windshield profile of the Minicraft C-135 kits (both in black and silver)

National insignia, both in earlier full-color and current low-visibility versions

Maintenance stencilling and door outlines in both early and current style

Refueling door markings for IFR-capable C-135 variants

Strategic Air Command (SAC) "sashes", WEATHER/MATS/MAC/AFMC tail bands

Various unit and command badges commonly seen on USAF C-135 series aircraft since the 1960s

A small set of number digits for earlier C-135 variant tail numbers.

Note that there are enough markings to do both a low vis and white over gloss grey version from the same set. A superb set of placement guides are provided and the decals themselves are superbly printed by Cartograf.

If you have this kit, then this is the sheet for you.
