Never seen that before or the kit. It is the North American XB-70 or very much like it.
Joe Caputo on July 23, 2013
Thanks Chuck, You’re correct, XB-70. The Lindberg B-1, supposedly the same scale, is in the stash…..

is that an actual scheme or fictional, what ever is very cool nice and different from the all white kinda boring usual ones
what scale is that 1\144?
Steve, Lindberg’s box says 1/144th, but we all know how that goes, the again, it may measure out, but I would think it’s a little small for strict scale. The price was right, and I thought it would be fun, as well as an attention getter. It’s strictly a “what-if” paint scheme. Purists go nuts !

Looks good, I like the novelty of the scheme.

I don’t know what inspired the paint job, but it’s a classic. Nice!

Thanks guys. I feel it demonstrates how much inexpensive fun you can still have with this hobby. Build for your own enjoyment, and every model is a winner !
