Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Collect-Aire
Name: Bell X-1E
Scale: 1:48
Kit contents: 28 resin pieces
3 metal pieces
2 vacuformed clear canopies
decals
instructions
Comments: The resin parts have a smooth surface finish and finely recessed panel lines. The fuselage is hollow, with an option to display the canopy open or closed. There is some flash on the parts that are thin and tiny, but there are no evident airholes in any of the resin parts. The metal landing gear parts appear to be strong enough to support the model. Two vacuformed clear canopies are provided, in case you damage one. The instructions consist of an exploded drawing along with an aircraft history that appears to be lifted (uncredited) from Jay Miller's The X-Planes. A painting and decaling guide for the various configurations of the X-1E complete the instructions. The waterslide decals are provided for most of the markings, including the Star and Bar insignia.
