A couple of shots of the SA-2S model that we just repaired and repainted. Too late for the article, but some of you may enjoy. I'll be posting a four-view at some point on our website. The wings actually swing out. Model is about two feet in length.

Beyond Kingfish article is here (for reference):

Awesome, thanks for posting the model pics. That's one of my favorite designs from the article. :)

Try a strong telephoto lens at a great distance.

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing

SA-2S side view = Archipeppe's Avatar?... every day is a school day!

Like Andreas Von Retyi's "experimental aircraft sighting" from Tikaboo in 1995?  ;D  (I am of course joking!)

Are you quite sure about this? The fins (fin?) in his avatar look considerably taller to me...

or orthogonal camera if any. Due to missing orthogonal camera in Vue I have to use Carrara, too.

You are of course quite right about the fin... maybe we should ask the man himself!
 
I had convinced myself that the nose and underslung Marquardt ramjet "twin pack" were defining features of the SA-2S configuration (and that these are also visable in his avatar picture)

I posted additional Convair SA-2S model shots tonight, including a couple with the wings extended. Enjoy!

My only complaint is that they don't give us more resolution.   :(

Resolution is good enough for display, a bit low for print. Works for me.

As least for building 3-D models from them, there is no such thing as "too much resolution".   ;D
