Quick Looks

Manufacturer: Muroc Models
Name: Bell X-2
Scale: 1:144
Kit contents: 9 resin pieces
1 vacuform piece
decals
instructions
Comments: The resin parts are nicely molded with no visible airholes (except for a main gear strut, but there was an extra one in my kit that is perfect), but a bit of flash around the smaller parts. The fuselage and wing are a single solid part detailed with finely engraved panel lines. There's also a bit of a mold seam that will need some cleaning up. The nose part is molded separately from the fuselage. Cockpit detail is provided by several decals. A seat is molded into the cockpit, but you'll have scratchbuild a control stick if you want. The thin clear vacuformed canopy is shipped on its resin master. The parts and decals represent aircraft 46-674 during June to September 1956. The instruction sheet includes an illustrated parts list, multistep text assembly instructions with illustrations, and a painting and decaling guide.
