Dave-I've been following your X-30 since way back during the Rocket Challenge days and the Bell X-2 for several years now; both rank as BIG personal favorites.

Needless to say, if you ever need a place to retire your stunning Bell X-2, please consider donating it to the Air Force Test Center Museum at Edwards Air Force Base. Just throwing that out there since your X-2 would be the only "flying" example returning to Edwards since the loss of the real X-2 on September 27, 1956. As you may know, parts from the crash site are in the museum's collection and would be a part of the display.

My hope is create a dedicated Bell X-2 project display to honor that incredible team. Some of Iven Kincheloe's personal items were donated by his widow and are on display now.

Thanks for creating these amazing models!

All the best,
Tony

Tony,

Thatís an interesting idea. Part of my motivation for building the X-2 was to honor the memory of those individuals who sacrificed so much to part of the Starbuster program.
PM me with some contact information and letís consider the options here.

FYI, the X-30 still lives and is in a hangar at the Caddo Mills Airport in Texas.

It looks like on September 21st the X-2 will be moving to itís new home at the Flight Test Museum at Edwards AFB.
If you are in that area, and would like to see the X-2 it will be on display.
For those in Texas who would like to see it before it moves out of town, it will be on display at RC Hobbies in Richardson through the end of the month.
I would like to thank Tony ďa.k.a. xplaneguyĒ for his help making this happen.
