You know this is a good reason to buy another one and a backup for that one.

I just called Apogee. The decal sheet is available and I've ordered a new one so I can redo the yellow deltas and add the star and bar decal to the fuselage.

Thanks for the help guys, and have a happy new year!

For those of you who are as anal as I am about getting your scale details correct, here is a link to a high def (enlargeable) shot of the Smithsonian's X-15.

All you need is the airframe, motor mount and recovery gear.


Too bad the X-15 parts bag is $8 and the shipping from Quest is $13. Sheesh. No matter what you buy, even the smallest thing still has the same shipping, $13.

Just add a few packs of D20 motors, it won't seem so bad.

For those of you who are NAR members and keep all their magazines, there is an pre-X-15 plan called the Douglas Model 684. Proposed X-15 Configuration, 1955.
NAR American Space Modeling Magazine issue, 1992 Volume 35, Number 5.
The Douglas Model 684 is on the cover.

A Estes Bullpup kit will take care of the N/C and body, Motor Mount, parachute and most of the tail feathers.
I can't scan the plan but if you PM me I can get the plans scanned (hard copy) to you for the price of two US postage stamps.

Also downloadable as a .pdf from the NAR publications archives, but you must be an NAR member, username and password needed.
File is labeled American Space Modeling (NARAM issue 1992)
