North American X-15 A2 in 1:48, Special Hobby

Dear Modeling Friends,
enclosed a few pics from my recently finished project, the X-15 Rocket Plane No. 66671 from Special Hobby.
Building this (resin) kit was a nightmare, but after the paint-job and applied Decals I was convinced that this will become a nice looking model…Hope you like it too!
Cheers, Christian

  3. Nice one Christian.

  4. With that batman canopy and those huge tanks, that thing looks menacing! Nicely done.

  5. I agree….it IS a nice looking model. 🙂

  6. You conquered a very challenging build of the ultimate X-plane. North American was at the cutting edge of aircraft design with the F 108 Rapier that never reached production and the Vigilante, X 15 and the XB-70 Valkyrie. Your X-15 looks AWESOME. Well done and thanks for sharing this one!!

  7. Christian, a nice look build, getting a good look out the fuel tanks really sets this off nicely. I like it !

  8. Many thanks my friends for your splendid comments! I agree – this was an incredible aircraft which power and speed we are not able to imagine…

  9. awesome build, luv the x-15. Great job with the black color finish. Broke it up nicely!

  10. Really cool subject and a great build to match!
