Hello gents,

Sgoti - you are 100% correct.

The only different one is KC/RC-135 with narrower fuselage.
I don't have got any good drawings/plans of KC-135 but I suppose that the nose/cabine may still be the same and it gets only slightly narrower where it joints with narrower fuselage. (???) Maybe somebody can correct me if I am wrong?

Kind regards

Cybermac

I always thought the KC/RC-135 was based off the 707.

I could be wrong...

In a way it was.RC-135 was made on C-135 Stratolifter platform that was based on B707.Looking at pictures yes,C-135 also had that exact nose job

He,if it ain't broken don't fix it.Right?Much like most of Airbus designs can be traced back to A300.Major differences are under skin and wings.

Here is a diagram I've seen numerous times on the difference in profiles between the Dash-80, 135, and 707.

Butelc. said on C-135 Stratolifter platform that was based on B707
I read somewhere, that it is actually the other way around. Boeing wanted to use the C-135 fuselage for the 707 as the civil transport version, and save extra design cost. It would seat 5 abreast in economy. Around the same time Douglas offered the DC-8 to the airlines, and that airliner seated 6 abreast in economy configuration. All airlines wanted that, more pax for a fraction of the additional cost. So Boeing hurriedly expanded the fuselage above the floor to make 6 abreast. Therefore, while the C-135 had an egg-shaped cross section, the 707 had a double bubble one, like the DC-8 by the way.

Hello gents,

Herky - thank you for your kind words!

scon10 - I just wonder if that would be possible to use a B-737 nose/cabin and adjust only 2-3 segments after the cabin to join it with the 'oval' fuselage to get the KC-135, or the are totally different/smaller type??

By the way I just wonder if anybody seen B-707 & KC-135 next to each other in any aviation museum next to each other??
(I have seen E-3, E-6 & KC-135R at Fairford, but never could get any proper clear photo from the side.)

Anyway, it doesn't happen often, but hey ho, I had couple of hours without 'any members of family' and I could do one whole segment.
I am hoping to bring the whole 1/48 model to this type of quality.

kind regards

Cybermac

Cybermac, using the 737 nose should probably fit the oval shaped mid fuselage of a KC-135, but make sure you delete any constriction of the fuselage sides at the floorlevel of the 737.
