We just have to cross our fingers that FineMolds/Tamiya/Hasegawa/Trumpeter will decide to do one.

Japan seems to be the lifeline for this hobby. I'm still amazed at how many old molds Bandai keeps hot.

It's your phone. I did a quick crop job to show the image. The J93 is the top engine, the GE4 the bottom. Almost 70,000 pounds of thrust.

The fact that a 2707 prototype never flew is one of the greatest injustices in aviation history.

Nothing ruins technological advancement more in history than politics.

if you can get to LEO then speed is nothing to worry about.

IF the got SSTO to work, and i'm sure they did. at worst maybe two stages.



It's hard to hit things in space


maybe those skyquakes was something coming home not leaving.

A bank of 6 j93s for the win!

Gotta admit the rear of the xb70 was impressive.

My dream is to find a testors or revell plastic model kit of the xb70 and have at it one day. Such a beautuful bird she was. Had a hustler model as a kid growing up. Mom threw it out when i went off to college. Along with my a10 kit i put together and did a sweet camojob on. (Was my first time using an airbrush. Probably looked like crap but i was 12 and proud of her. ) So PO'd about them getting binned.


The local Hobby Lobby had a Italeri 1/72 in stock a couple weeks ago. $60+ from what I can remember.

Its almost as if we were able to launch something relatively large into orbit clandestinely without anybody noticing but that the boom on the return couldn't be helped
