1/32 Scale Bell X-1A

Not really an unbuilt project, but perhaps of interest to forum members, this is the first test build of my new X-1A /B kit in resin.

Nice. How about some shots of the kit parts laid out with a ruler or other scale item for reference.

Indeed. In the parts-layout photos, there needs to be an unclad Kate Upton. You know, for scale.

More pics of the kit parts for you, and a shot with a scale.

 I reached out to Ms. Upton about doing a scan for a figurine but sadly there has been no response as of yet.Perhaps tomorrow.

That there looks like a reasonably classy kit. Congrats.

If you can't get Kate Upton, you might try Scarlett Johanson or Christina Hendricks. Because why wouldn't you.

Now, THAT'S a well engineered and crafted resin kit. Thank you for the presentation.
