The Right Stuff – Bundesfighter goes to Hollywood
This build that I did as a tribute to one of my favorite movies - The Right Stuff, made by Philip Kaufmann in 1983. The Eduard 1/48 "Bundesfighter" kit (reboxed Hasegawa with some aftermarket) has the decals for the aircraft individual that where used during the shooting of the flight scenes.
The pilot is an X-15 pilot (which kind of makes sense...) from Plus Models.
