Neat little kit. There are no part numbers on the sprue and no locating pins, otherwise a nice little kit. Comes with 3 separate PE painted instrument panels for the different versions.

No other pics - kinda went together quickly. Cockpit is nice. I glued the door shut though as I was certain I'd loose it - can't see much inside with the door shut. Comes with nicely cast resin wheels. Gear doors are way thick though.
Thanks,
John

Neat!

Well done, John. Just in time for Halloween, too! Did you put a light in the cockpit :bag:

Great stuff, I've always fancied building an X-1. Yours looks terrific!
