Default X-15A-2 1/15th scale

I finally finished the A2 in black. A lot of research went into this model. The model is built using molds I made off the wind tunnel model at Edwards, from there I built a CAD model using all the drawings and info I have, then matched the model to the CAD.

Fantastic work! And with using molds from the model at Edwards, its got some history to it as well.

I'v always wondered what's with the thick vertical stabilizer and blunt rear end. Why was it made that way?

This one is totally off the hock. I love this jet/rocket and you built it in 1/15. I wish I could do some CAD work and do plans of jets that aren't in large scale. Super job!!

You wouldn't happen to have another cast of that bird "laying" around, would you?

I have $200 in ref material and a little bit of experience building the X15:

Super sweet! Thanks for posting!

Love the X planes. This is a superb build. Couldn't get more accurate.

given the background on your avatar, I'm surprised it took you so long to post Neb! I was waiting to hear your opinion on this masterpiece since you are the only one, any of us RI shlubs have any contact with that has probably(and very likely) sat in it!

My butt is waaaaaay too wide to fit in that seat! I did, however, have my noggin jammed up inside the nose gear snapping pics when the curator showed up. Very accomodating fella---it was funny---he was asking me questions about the X15 as if he was testing me on it.

I was on vacation with very limited computer access when this baby showed up. Cat was kind enough to send me a pic via cell phone to give me a heads up.

Either that or he did it to torture me....

Default X-15A-2 1/15th scale

Here's my lateset X-15A-2 in 1/15th scale. I've done the entire vehicle in CAD and I use that model to create the 2d layouts for all the rivets and details. I've found that instead of applying individual strips of rivets, I use large decals that cover about 80% of the surface. I've also found that printing on vinyl works great, it's almost indestructable once applied and can be used outdoors, tho' I doubt anyone would display this outside.

I have three more in production as well as a 1/40th XB-70. I've started using Shapeways to print stainless steel parts like the speedbrake arms for the X-15, they dont have a setup fee but the turn around isnt rapid.
