    The windows look great. I picked this kit up myself recently, though it will be a little while before I'll be able to start it. Anyway, keep it up! :)

    Bell X-1 "Glamorous Glennis" Machbuster Model


    I think General 'Chuck' Yeager himself would be very proud with this model! Keep up the good work.

    All the best,
    Bengt :smile:

    X1 landing gear

    As far as I know, the X1 didn't have landing gear. It was built with skids on the bottom. It could only land on the desert sand. When it landed it was esentialy, a glider. When they moved it on the ground it was loaded on a dollie. But then, I wasn't there, so maybe they put wheels on one and kept it a secret. LOL

  18. It was the X-2 which had no landinggear..

    Jparenti, it is one of the PModel series, you can get them at spishop from Joseph, or directly from Pmodels. Getting them from PModels is a bit of achore, you have to buy credits using your credit card then apply the credits to the account, then they send you a password to open the pdf file. It's mega easier getting them from Spishop. NullMoon, excellant job on her, I do believe Yeager would be delighted!
  20. Thanks,cmdrted
    And here's the X 1 including landinggear
