Douglas X-3 Stiletto, Lindberg, 1955, 1/48
« on: December 04, 2018, 10:54:01 AM »
Hi mates :-salut

I built one when I was a teenager and a second one in March, 1996. This is this latter one that I present you.
This is a very basic kit made of only 27 parts... and the kit, although containing a twin turbo-jet, is of the type which we look through.
But, for the time, pilot and seat are beautiffully reproduced.
This the reason why I completed it inside :
1) Scheme to improve fuselage interior :


2)Other details :



The artwork by Ray Gaedke : wings are blue because this artwork has been made from a photograph of the X-3 on which sky reflected in the moror-like wings...


The kit :
