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!
15 additional images. Click to enlarge.
Looks like you beat it into submission - nice work!
Great build and photographs, Christian. Have a look at this video. It quite literally had me open mouthed watching it.
Nice one Christian.
With that batman canopy and those huge tanks, that thing looks menacing! Nicely done.
I agree...it IS a nice looking model. 🙂
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!
Christian, a nice look build, getting a good look out the fuel tanks really sets this off nicely. I like it !
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...
awesome build, luv the x-15. Great job with the black color finish. Broke it up nicely!
Really cool subject and a great build to match!
