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

Dear Modeling Friends,
enclosed a few pics from my recently finished project, the Rocket Plane No. 66671 from .
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

  1. Looks like you beat it into submission - nice work!

  2. Great build and photographs, Christian. Have a look at this video. It quite literally had me open mouthed watching it.

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

  4. I agree...it IS a nice looking model. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. 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!

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

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