Thanks !

Next is the cockpit area---this was the most difficult area of the whole kit to assemble since there are no locator pins, markings or anything to insure position of of the rear vertical wall and side console panels.

Get the angle of the rear vertical wall wrong and the cockpit will sit too far forward and jack up the nose gear position, or..will leave the cockpit tub too "thick" (if the wall is too vertical), and you will not be able to get the lower fuselage to fit. Period.

More test fitting. I fit and test fit everything for over 5 weeks before I even thought about painting anything.

Absolutely stunning work thus far. The plumbing work on the tanks is beautiful.

Actually, she's been done since early May. I've been feeding progress pics a little at a time since I didn't have time to do it while I was building. Great minds think alike though---I have pictures I shot at WPAFB that are composed exactly like yours! I saved them anyhow---you can never have too much reference. (and I've got another one to build) I'll be posting the rest of the pics as soon as I have the time to shrink them down....

Thanks dude!

Dude you should totally write an article about this build. You could do it for FSM or SF&FM or SSM.

If they do another Real Space Edition of SF&FM an article on this X-15 build would be good for it.

You know, that's occured to me---heck I still need to post the rest of the build pics here.

I've just started my new job last Monday and I've got a ton to learn to get up to speed---hopefully in a couple of weeks I can get back to this.

I am going to Nats though (sorry to hear ya can't make it), and I'll corral Matt Usher and see what he thinks.
