The KC-97 looks amazing! It's kind of funny how the KC-135 isn't a whole lot bigger than the 97. I need to get mine built and out to the museum :mrgreen:

Wonderful job Pericles!

I had no idea until now a large scale model could still hold it's beaut and graceful lines. You did a lot more then just a fantastic job on this one. When my day comes to start I will look forward to the photos of yours you took. Wow and a half job. Unbelievable! Stand up, face the computer and take a bow or two. Thank you for sharing and allowing us in on a great build. Thank you, Wad Cutter

I guess I will be chatting with E-Card about this beautiful model. I'll have to go into negotiations with my banker over this transaction. I wonder what honey dues I will have to pay and the going rate of interest that will be adding. Well worth it. Looking forward to adding this to my personal library. Thank you again gomidefilho for outstanding job on the build and the step by step photos. Over all, an A+ at least. Super great craftsmanship. wc

This one isn't going to ecardmodels for a while. It's going here to FG...eventually. I have been offering it through direct email though. You get the KC-97, 377 prototype, Pregnant Guppy and a black and white with no markings for a $20 paypal donation.

They're going to be released through FG, I just dunno when. I submitted about 200 models to Scott, and they're getting randomly cleaned up and released. I put the donation suggestion in for those who don't want to wait for them to come out on FG. I'll send them direct email.
