    Hello everybody, I just signed in to this wonderful webside, I've got a question, Is there a papermodel of the XB-70 Valkyrie somewhere availble? On the the internet I found one , but this was low-detail thing for kids,
    Cheers, Billy

    Howdy Bill,

    Well, being the self proclaimed unofficial "linkmaster" lol, there is only one website I know of that offers a model of the xb 70 Valkyrie as a free download, and since you already found one, its probably the same link, but on the off chance its not, here is the one that I know of: http://homepage3.nifty.com/ctri/007.htm

    This too is a very simple model, but with some "rolling" of the fuselage, you can achieve a more "rounded" look. Below are some photos from the above link:

    Hope this helps, have a good day,

    Thanks

    Thanks for your information on the XB-70,It's a nice little model,fills another gap in my collection. I think specialy the landing gear needs a nose-(wheel)job ....
    Maybe someone will make a more detailed model, dr Zarkov, or those guys in Poland aren't bad either...

    Yeah you would.......... but boy would it stop a basketball game and make people look!

    Of course you would have to build the chase planes to go with it!

    I don't think a 1/33 XB-70 would be too excessive I figure (approximately) it as:

    Span - 38.2 in (97cm)
    Length - 67.3 in (171 cm)
    Height - 11.2 in (28 cm)

    I think the dimensions are with undercarriage up and wing outer panels in the subsonic (0 deg) position. There are some pretty big paper models of planes around like the 1/33 B-1B and Me-323 Gigant.

    Regards,

    Charlie

    the model of the XB-70 Valkyrie is (Meta model released in 1980)in 1/96 scale its a nice model:) you can build it in super sonic or sub sonic mode and set your wing tips in dif positions , i got 2 copies i have yet to build:)
    it is roughly over 20+ inches long
    the hobby model release that was mentioned is almost a carbon copy of the Meta model

    I think that the Hobby Model #87 edition is out of print. You may be able to find it on e-bay. It is some BIG aircraft.....
