Caracal Models CD72128 -USAF C-135 Recon Variants

The KC-135 Stratotanker was not only a tanker - in its reconnaissance variants, it has been serving as an important intelligence asset during the Cold War and beyond. This Caracal set provides markings for nine RC-135/WC-135 variants from various periods.

Note that the various reconnaissance configurations of the C-135 had numerous differences and modifications, and in most cases the AMT/ERTL kits will need to be heavily modified to use these decals. Basic information on engine and antenna configurations will be provided to the extent possible.

Limited release of 250 sets only.

Please note that this decal sheet does not include national insignia or maintenance stencilling. You can source these markings from our 1/72 scale KC-135 General Markings Set (CD72070) or the kit decals.
