I'm guessing it's an all CGI model unique to the show, maybe based on an actual aircraft with design modifications.
Looks really fancy with all the winglets... Would be cool to see a model of this
Btw I love that show
I think the C-17 is the base.

Thanks Idaho, definitely looks close enough, might pick one of these fellas
Revell Germany - 1/144 Boeing C-17 Globemaster III
362mm length, add another two engines and it would look great,thank you
I think it is all CGI, as far as a starting point for it I'd guess a C17 for the fuselage and the wings. It looks like they added a bulge over the cockpit and running back to the forward wings. The forward wings, at a quick look, seem to be C17 as well, although they don't seem to have the droop of a C17.
nah... not C-17... its close. Vertical stabilizer is all wrong and the nose is too blunt on the 17... just my 2 cents. It's CGI

Yes, it's CGI, but the base is a C-17. The cargo bay, where the vehicles are stored, looks almost 100% C-17. compare it to here:
def a C-17 base if nothing else. Probably used a mockup that has been used for other movies or at least used it as the base.
Definitely "based" on a C-17 fellas. They did a fairly decent job of replicating the cargo bay as far as the aesthetics, the floor, walls and such. It also appears that they did their homework when designing the interior layout. Obviously they added the bump above the flight deck, but I think it would all fit. Take a look at this:
Only glaring errors (besides the fact it's all completely FICTION) is the placement of the HVAC. That area is the extended range fuel tank which contains 60,000lbs of fuel. The HVAC "environmental pacs" are located in the left and right gear pods. And apparently they deleted the cargo door at the rear of the aircraft. That would really limit the height of anything loaded through the back of the plane.
Someone hurry and buy two of the Revell kits and build one of these!!!
And also: Per the AF "rule book", the C-17 does require 3 personnel to operate the aircraft. 2 pilots and a loadmaster (me ). But honestly, one trained pilot could handle everything with no issues. On a short day (<12 hours). With no cargo to offload/onload. And no airdrop. Or passengers. Or emergencies. (There's often only one crew member awake on long trips anyway)

AWESOME, great spec drawings, great find, even has details for the skylight, didn't know that was Coulson's office in there.
C17ldmstr, couldn't ask for a better source of info
unique model that is a mix of C5 and C130
More like a mix of C17 and C5
This explains the "hump". The dimension that the loadmaster talks about are right. In some episodes they show two cars parked side by side on the ramp, as well as the lab with an overhead level. This is a good place to give perspective. By this I would say more C5 by the size. Source: Army guy that jumps out of airplanes.
