I have always loved the looke of the xb-70. I recently got ahold of some 3 views and had some fomecor (large posterboard) around so i stripped the paper and started designing. I finished the front part of the fuse and have started the nose cone.

Been there, done that, flew well but I'd sure wish I would have used a Hacker B20 and a micro fan instead of the GWS, barely kept it airborne.

What are you planning to use as power??

Good luck with it.

Hawhaw! The Valkyrie! This one'll turn heads so fast it'll seem like a Stevan Segal movie! Good luck on the project. Happy flying!

Great white bird

Beautiful!

Keep the posts coming!

Damn! ANOTHER bird to add to the construction/wish-list.

Between the reno job on my office (new barristers cabinet for all of my "trophies", plus shiffle everythign around to make room for it) and my wife redesigning the basement, my workshop is being used for storage.
