      I picked up a flea market baggie of the Revell KC135 oldie for a few cents and three wing sections ( both left wing sections and the upper right wing section)are missing. If anyone has a spares box with such parts or even a trashed whole KC135 let me know and I will pay a reasonable amount for them . PM me and I will respond immediately. As always, thanks a lot.

      I have a set of wings for a 720 if you want to go that way.
      I might even have a Revell KC-135 in the scrap box.
      You are welcome to both!

      Pm me snail address

      I can't help with spares but a reminder.....

      I'm 99.99% certain any REVELL 707/KC135/720/E3 AWACS kit will work as a donor because other than the fuselages all the parts are the same.

      I have a couple of the United "B720" kits complete. Pretty sure they never changed the wings from the other kits all the way back to the AA B707 Astrojet. Contact me if you would like these kits.

      I'd be interested if they are the original 1960's issue but not the 2000 reissue. I have a couple of those.

      Thanks for the offer.

      Wow, Art! You've got yourself a vintage kit. The only KC-135 I have is kit #4523 which was issued in 1982. You can view the sprues in the database to see if they match your kit's wing section. I've also compared the wings to the reissued Revell 720 and they are the same except for the insert tabs, which shouldn't make a difference.

      Let me know if this is of any interest to you.

      Yes, Romy this is , I believe, what's left of an original KC-135 kit produced in 1957. I have matched it up with an original of the same kit in my stash now. Matching up the only wing section I have in the baggie with the original kit looks like a match.
      But if I can get some spare parts, I may be able to build a 707, KC135 , or 720 . If you want to sell your # 4523 let me know. Thanks for checking. This community is invaluable because of fellow modelers like you who are always ready to go a step beyond.
      Happy modeling. Art

      Art, if you're interested in kit #4523, you can have it at the cost of shipping. The only caveat is that it's missing the engines. I've cannibalized those for another kit.

      PM if interested.

      Are your Revell 720 kits the 2000 re-release or are you lucky enough to have a couple of the early classic issues in your stash?

      All of the Revell 707/720 kits have the same dimensions wings and fuselages. Differences are minor with windows, fin caps, and ventral fins?? AFAIK the only official 720 release was the United one from 2000. I've looked up old American 707 releases and am quite certain the N # on the decal is for an American 720. The wings in all of the Revell 707/720 kits should be identical.

      There have been three sets of engines released in the Revell 707/720 lineup. PW turbojets, PW turbofans, and Rolls Royce Conway turbojets. The Conways came with the rare BOAC release and oddly enough in the United 720 set. The engines look every so slightly different from the PW turbojets.

      Thanks, Ken. I was very curious if the 720 had been released in any other packaging different than the 2000 release ( because it is commonly referred to as the "2000 re-release" ). I checked with our friend Alan Bussie at OLD MODEL KITS and he stated he had never seen the kit in other than the 2000 UAL release. Thanks for your additional confirmation.
