X Plane Models

I have always liked prototypes and experimental aircraft.  Recently there have been a number of X-planes available as nice kits (not just vacuforms).  Just click on the thumbnail photo to bring up the larger image.

These are all 1/72 scale unless noted.

X-20 Dyna-Soar


In early 2000 I finally finished the nifty little 1/144th scale X-20 DynaSoar kit produced by PartTime Models. This is an all-resin kit that I enhanced by adding some wire struts to the engine area and reshaping the engine nozzles. It had a fair amount of surface irregularities but a little putty and super glue took care of that. Overall I was pleased with the results.
