1/144 Revell C-17A

This is the Revell 1/144 C-17A. I've added the Wolfpack resin trailing edge flaps and leading edge slats and built her in the landing configuration. The kit went together mostly well. Closing up the aft ramp area seamlessly was a little bit of work. Getting seamless wing roots was a bit of work, as well.

I used Mr Color and Alclad II paints. The weathering is a bit unrealistic but I think it makes the model much more interesting to look at. The Hickam AFB decals were made by Xtradecal.

I enjoyed this kit and would definitely recommend it!
