I started collecting aircraft years ago when I began with snap-kits.The early purchases were pretty basic. Install the wings, tail, engines and stand and the result was a nice model for very little money. That lasted a few years before I lost interest. Along came diecast and the rest is history. There have been a few aircraft that I have purchased that are military in snap-kit form. This is one of them that I am well pleased with.
Without having to go into a lot of detail repetition,this model was well researched by Skymarks. The markings are authentic and accurate. There are few panel lines on the wing surfaces both on top and underneath. They included guide lights on the fuselage in the form of decals which are utilized on the entire model without looking cheap. I would like to have had them add some detail to the bottom of the aircraft such as where the landing gear doors would be or an anti-collision light or navigation lights at the end of the wings, but honestly, the model is very presentable just as it is.
It assembled quickly and firmly with no added effort needed to place it on the stand. I was stationed at McGuire AFB before these aircraft began showing up. We had a Air National Guard unit on base that flew KC-135Es, so seeing these KC-10's, in McGuire's markings, was a real treat. Parked amongst all my diecast, it fits just fine.
