  1. Good looking X-1! What is the name on that Floquil? They’re gone, now. That was a nice line of paints, I miss them.

  2. Wow….that certainly is ORANGE, ain’t it ?!! 🙂 🙂

  3. Beautiful work as usual Allan.

  4. That paintwork has certainly stood the test of time, built ten years ago.

  5. Looks great !! I did this one a while back. It’s was a good kit, especially for a Hobby Craft. They made some winners !!

  6. Nice work Alan, don’t remember this kit looks great.

  7. BEAUTIFULLY painted, Allan! The finish looks great, as does the rest. Gen. Yeager would be proud!
