While the concept of mid-air refueling has existed since the 1920s, it wasn't until the Cold War that the idea really caught on. Nations needed to keep bombers on constant standby, so being able to keep aircraft aloft indefinitely (mechanically speaking) was a significant advantage, and so an aerial tanker was developed to meet U.S. needs. Modified off of the C-135, the KC-135 is America's primary mid-air refueler, and has been since 1957. Recreated here in fine detail and quality craftsmanship, this model is an excellent choice for any aviation enthusiast.

Comments about Toys and Models KC-135R Stratotanker:
Amazing quality and details! I am so happy with this plane. I ordered it for my husband who is a boom operator and it is something that he can display on his desk and pass down to our son when he is older. Thank you for such a great product!
