Bell Aircraft X-5 – Revell 1/40th
The first aircraft to change the geometry of the wing in flight. This design was taken from the Messerschmidt P.1101 aircraft.
The Revell kit goes back to the 1950s. This kit follows the norm of the time period, like moving wings and control surfaces. It is interesting to note that this kit has engraved detail.
