North American X15, 66670, NASA, Edwards Air Force Base California 1961.

June 7, 2017 in Aviation

1/72 Monogram, I shortened the fuselage and removed some things to convert the kit back to the original X15, hinged the rudder and elevators also scribed the panel lines, finished in Revell and MM enamels with Future and Xtracrylix flat over kit and spare decals. built between 2010 and 2016.

  1. Nice build looks like something you would race on Bonneville salt flats.

  2. Allan, great work on this, I like the changes you did, gives it some more character. Still the best and only one in 72nd. Classic Monogram!
    I have the B-52/X-15 in the stash. Got one the last time it surfaced.

  3. Very nice build Allan! I’d love one in 1/48 as well. It’s an iconic aircraft for sure. Is it true that X-15 pilots received “astronaut wings”? It really was a winged spacecraft in many ways. πŸ™‚

  4. Well done, Allan….I like that.

  5. You definitely have eclectic tastes! Very nice build.

  6. STUNNING!!!! Well done. This is by far THE X-plane !!!

  7. Great conversion, nice to see, did one out of the box awhile back.

  8. Lovely! This IS the ultimate aerial speedster!

    Nicely done, Allan!
