This is a resin kit of the second generation Bell X-1. I am quite sure the manufacturer is "Project X", but this kit was given to me without box and decals. It was stored in a box at my workbench for several years, unfinished. I even got the much better Special Hobby X-1 injected model in 1;72 scale. However, i decided to finish it instead of trowing away the kit. Markings are very simple as the X-1D was lost very early during the X-1 project. The kit was finished with Alclad II. It is a nice kit, but can not be compered to a injected model, specially the Special Hobby offering.
