    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

    Nullmoon,

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

    All the best,
    Bengt :smile:

    Nullmoon,

    What a beauty! The airfoil of the wings look really good.

    Awesome work,

    Excellent job on the whole model, but the wings did come out very well in particular.

    Looking forward to the next update!

    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

    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!
