9th day Before Christmas.
Here is an oddball model design that I found on e-bay, the Convair. Seems to be overall a good design with an 18mm motor mount and fall once again in the VR class of designs.

Enjoy and to ALL a Merry Christmas.

Convair was the design company behind the B-36 Peacemaker. This was obviously a concept design from the late 1950's or early 1960's, predicting what space travel might be like in our present day. A lot of nuclear propulsion ideas came from that era. In fact, it looks to me like it might have even inspired the movie version of Arthur C. Clarke's Discovery (from 2001: ASO).
