14757 KC-97L Tanker
Finished Model Size 9.5" X 12" X 3" (62+) Parts
The KC-97 evolved from the WWII Boeing B-29 bombers. An extensive re-design of the B-29 as a transport became first the XC-97, then YC-97 and finally the C/KC-97 in the late 1940’s. The KC-97 was adapted to carry fuel for airborne refueling starting in the late 1940’s. The KC-97L served well into the 1960’s with Air National Guard units. This new Minicraft KC-97L features J-47 jet engines and a new clear stand to represent the model “in flight” for desk top displa. The kit includes new Cartograf decals representing 2 KC-97L aircraft that served the United States Air Force, and the Air National Guard.
