    Fantastic build John John :thumb::thumb:
    What is the overall length of that beauty at 135%?
    It nearly covers the full length of your patio table...

    Upscaled X-15 Model

    Beautiful, John John,

    Your detailing and precision in building this model is absolutely magnificent! I have to build this one, too. What do you reckon the scale is of your upscaled model - perhaps 1:24 or 1:20?

    Superb job,
    Bengt :thumb:

    Scaled perfectly, there was no fit issues, smooth seams and wonderful kit, great design, Im dying to see more of Kens work

    Length is 28 inches, not including the vent/ drain tubes at the back...

    Id love to see those Strap On Boosters if anyone is willing to design them

    Thanks Ken

    John John,

    Thanks for the nice compliments!

    I always had it in my mind's planner to design an "in-flight" model with external tanks and lower rudder. I'm sure I'll get to it once I finish up the Valkyrie.

    I read this entire thread this morning and just now purchased the paper model from ecardmodel.com I cant wait!,.. the only question I have is if its a download why is there a waiting period for download,.. (i guess thats a question for ecardmodels) also I noticed that an "https" (the "s" being the important part in the URL section) does not appear when i am typing in my credit card info,..

    either way this model is amazing I cant wait till I get it!

    I also noticed that the flight package is priced at 0.00$,.. is it to late to get that? or does it have to be purchased too at the time of the initial purchase?

    Sorry for the noob question, but where do you sell your work, Exzealot? You have a new customer here.

    Sorry for the off topic, but is there somewhere a build report/review for Ken's 1/32 Republic F-84G Thunderjet? I've noticed it at ecardmodels.com shop, but unfortunately there is no additional info available. Thanks!

    Necroposting?

    Not wishing to violate any forum rules, but just curious as to what exactly constitutes a "dead thread" and why a posting to such a thread initiates the type of response from a forum moderator as exemplified above?
