Manufacturer Draw Decal
Decal Sheet ID 72s-KC135-3
Decal Sheet Title 'Spirit of Arizona' KC-135R
Types Featured KC-135R

During 2013 the Arizona Air National Guard painted one of its' KC-135Rs in very colorful markings. Draw Decal have reproduced this aircraft in 1/72 scale.

Airframe 62-3516 was painted overall AMC Battle Grey/Proud Grey (FS36173). The entire fin was painted with an Arizona flag, and Draw Decal have replicated this well, together with full nose art and a set of US National Flags.

As with most Draw Decals, the sheet is printed using Digital Silk - this makes is a little thicker and stiffer than normal waterslide decals. The sheet is printed in perfect register and the instructions comprise side views with full information for markings.

Who will be the first to use these on an AMT/Italeri KC-135R?!
