Military aircraft vol.87: North American X-15A2

North American X-15A2
Special Hobby
US$55,00 plus shipping
Injected plastic model with  resin parts and waterslide decals.
This is Special Hobby's 1/48 scale X-15A2 under construction. As a limited run kit, you have to deal with some special problems. First you will work with resin parts, witch is not a big deal, but you have to take extra care with the very small parts. Also, get ready to some serious fitting and sanding of the major assembling parts. It was painted with Tamiya acrylics and Alclad II. The base is plastic sheet with recessed lines. Plus Model's 1/48 scale X-15 pilot was added to increase the sense of proportion on the actual size of the aircraft.
