Both US Launch Vehicles Projects #04 and US Bomber Projects #20 (XB-59 Special) are done and in the editing phase. I’m hoping to have them ready in the next few days.

    In color no less. And Boeing Beta too.

    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…

      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.

    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.

      Yup, it was Hawk. Been a little bit of a while since I did that one.
