Looks like Special Hobby is reissuing the X-15A-2 in the all white scheme


Recommended Posts

Yes, it comes with dolly + few other new parts. You can look at instruction sheet at specialhobby.eu site.

I think the only new parts in the kit are the resin bits for the dummy ramjet.  They had previously released the A-2 with the ground dolly and external tanks, but in the original black scheme.

What is a painting strategy for the white ablation?   Did the coating have a texture?  Would the color change during flight.  I am thinking about portraying a post flight bird.  I need an X-plane reference it seems. 


Some post flight videos.  Note that the reason for the pink color is because the actual ablative was a Pepto-Bismol pink.  The white was a coating over that.

Scalehobbyist is taking orders.  Looks like the price has gone up compared to what I remember the last release going for.  But, it looks like you get a stand so you can show it inflight.
