This new publication from Vanwell
Publishing is in a format similar to Osprey Publishing. The quality of
paper, photographs and printing is excellent.
The story starts with the Boeing Model 367-80, the transition to the
B707 and its derivatives of the C-135. The first chapter in this
publication is dedicated to the development by Boeing, for Model 367-80
and finishes with the definitive B707 and C-135. The designation for the
Canadian B707 was the CC137.
This publication contains approximately 73 photographs with quite a few
being printed in colour. Many detailed line drawings are included and
many of these look like they have come from the original manufacturers
maintenance manuals. 6 colour side profiles displaying different schemes
worn by various aircraft of the CAF is also included. A very eye
catching scheme is that of the aircraft in its 2 tone variegated, and
the anniversary schemes.
At the back of the publication is a section on models available in 1/72,
1/100, 1/125 and 1/144. This chapter describes the accuracy of the kits
and decals available at the time of publishing. A short list of
aftermarket parts is also included for the modeler who wants to add the
extra parts and decals.
In summary, this is a very concise and complete reference for any
modeler wanting to build a Canadian CC137.
