True, very rare, the only customer was Iran.

My guess is that approaching the tanker for refueling was not a simple affair ...
Wake turbulence behind such an aircraft is huge, the receiving aircraft has to stay well below the tanker.

Yes JP you are correct. That's why the contract did not go to Boeing on this Aircraft. DC10's won this round back in the day. I just have a few more pics to share. Enjoy

I saw this model at the store today. Never knew Boeing reconfigured the original prototype for refuelling missions. Nice buy!

Very nice model indeed, I also recently bought a model and I haven't taken any pictures of this model yet

These are my Boeing livery models so far and the XX2181 1/200 B777-200LR House Color already on the way to me plus the model you show above

Nice Boeing fleet! Thanks for posting pics! I have a few seen in them. You need to try to add the 737, 727, 707, and 747SP.

A few collectors are getting all the house colours I see. With any new tooling why not start with house colours manufactures? It's logical place to start. For me, while I love seeing them, I am glad to limit myself and sticking with just Boeing 747 house colours. By the way nice collection Vandan.

That you did Goldie,

However, I ordered it through my local here in Oz very late, and well after release, told status = sold out. I then canceled my order. Then it turned up
