Gregory,

Dude, I've seen that before! It's been a while too. I wish I had bookmarked the site. But what I do remember reading is that it was proposed to put a single J-2 engine in the tail. I'll go looking.

It seems familiar to me as well. It just might be I saw it on Scott's APR and might be what was labeled "follow-on X-15". Then again...

Wow .....this thread just lead me to this

Love the three view!

The delta SERJ version I have nailed down however the rest like the one featured in this thread seem very sketchy, intertwined and lacking of designer heritage.

Ah, the SERJ powered X-15. Scott's APR Extras, right? Man, that's a sweet plane! :eek:

Thanks to Mr.William J.D. Escher I have a copy of the X-15 SERJ design manual. From which in return I am to fabricate a large RC model.
