From Le Fana de l'Aviation latest issue (#470, January 2009) page 28-39. C-133 article from René J. Francillon (highly recommended)

1. Oversize Cargo Lifter (twin tailed) with a set of different containers. There is a model shown on page 39 with a Dyna-Soar. The labels in the other containers are Apollo, Saturn SIV, Saturn SII, Saturn SI and RIFT.

2. "KC-133"

3. Commercial transport (both airliner and combi variants)

4. C-133 "Zwilling"

5. Douglas D-895. A C-133B with the DC-8 wings/engines

The C-133 Saturn Carrier model survives to this day.

Thanks a lot, folks. You've proved that a bit of reasonable topic bumping can be a good thing. Sometimes we don't see a specific post, or we didn't have the info when it was posted, and then *shazam!* (as Orionblamblam would say), two or three years down the line there's new stuff to be added!
