got a couple of 1/3000 navwar/skytrex kc135 tankers(cant remember from who i got them)
thinking of converting them to p8a poseidon and kc46 tankers
so for kc46 remove outer 2 engines?
for p8a poseidon remove outer 2 engines and add winglets
problem is i am puzzled with wing angle (i think they all have different wing angles ?
or would it be noticable on that scale??

The engines are noticeably bigger, too.

I don't think wing sweep changes appreciably between Boeings (I don't remember a difference between 727, 737, 757, or the monster 747s).

The KC-46 is based on the 767 airframe, which is a big, fat widebody. Much larger fuselage on that one than a KC-135 or 737. At that scale, I'm not sure it would be very noticeable, so long as you paint them a different color from the P-8s.

Dragoman's Depot has P-8s in 1/2400 scale along with other patrol aircraft:
