I’m hoping to have them ready in the next few days. George Allegrezza In color no less. And Boeing Beta too. Kopis Wondering if US Bomber Projects #20 contains some details of the XAB-1 Atomic Bomber. Semi-educated guess is it was a proprietary project for Fantastic-Plastic. Missed out on purchasing the model; too little, too late….state of affairs happening more often than desired. Not interested in plunking down $180.00 + on infrequent ebay auctions for one. Doing searches for XAB-1 and following various links led to finding this corner of the Internet… Scottlowther The XAB-1 model I did for FP was a re-scaled version of the Aurora model kit from ~60 years ago. Pure imagination on the part of the Aurora kit designers. Kopis Large thanks for the reply. Your work on up scaling the Fantastic-Plastic model looked to be first rate. s No wonder you get paid the big bucks. /s 🙂 Our memories differ a bit; my recollection is the model was produced by Hawk Models from the late 50s to mid 60s (subject to detail errors). The original scale was an oddball 1/188th. Damn parasite fighter’s nose tip would easily break/fall off. Interesting fantasy model though. Scottlowther Yup, it was Hawk. Been a little bit of a while since I did that one.
