Custom KC-135R Models Available with Tail Markings From Every Single Base July 20 2015 103 Comments

A couple of years ago, we added the KC-135R to our fleet of "Custom Express" models.  This plane is the venerable workhorse of our nation's tanker fleet.  With over 803 KC-135s built, there are still over 400 in service.  They are strategically located at bases all around the world with hundreds operated by the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves.

Over the past couple of weeks, we've been busy redesigning our website.   When redesigning the site, we added additional customization features to our model.  Now you can order ANY US Air Force base tail flash, even from a deactivated unit.  We also added the option for MIPRs, or refueling pods on the wings.  It's all part of our relentless pursuit of accuracy.

Since 2007, we've set out to build a unique store that sells custom mahogany models and we're really proud of the store we've built.  What sets us apart are a couple of things.  First of all, we were the first store on the web to offer "Custom Express" models.  That means that just 4 weeks after ordering your custom airplane, you'll have it delivered to your door. We offer the "Custom Express" option for 10 different aircraft.  Each plane can be customized with your choice of tail number, base markings, name on canopy rail along with a custom patch and data plate on the stand.  Many of our competitors try to match our speed but they never match our quality or attention to detail.  We include features that other model makers forget.  Every model we make comes with realistic antennas, accurate paint colors, pitot tubes, windshield wipers and even accurate boom markings.
