Bell X-1A / X-1B up for pre-orders

Recommended Posts

Hi LSP'ers...

The X-1A /B kit is in production, decals are off to print and the photo etch just arrived....We're off to the races here!

The kit is up for pre-order for those who want theirs first and fastest, should be shipping mid July.

 

With a lot of help from Scott Lowther, Tony Landis and Dave Newman we've dug up enough research data to ensure a really great kit, and you can build either the A or the B version, which allows for a few different paint schemes.Decals have enough stencil data to keep you up late at night, and even the two boarding ladders are included.

Best, 

Paul

Just a note on postage...it costs $22.50 to get the kit to Australia, or Europe, not all that bad, even though the rates have continued to climb.

Yeah, that's not bad at all.

I just returned from a visit to the National Museum of the USAF, and after seeing the real X-1B, I'm going to have to get the kit :D .  Does the kit have the reaction control nozzles and the wooden wedges added to the ailerons in the plane's final configuration?  It doesn't appear to have them in the photos of the parts.

 

Thanks!
