X-1 nears finishing

Not much left to do except pen in the door, ailerons, flaps, elevators and rudders. She ready to fly when the rocket motors finally get past back order. I will glide test it and make sure it’s trim and the CG is on the spot. I sure enjoyed building this little bit of history. If you click on the pictures you can see a larger image. If you look close you’ll see Chuck in the drivers seat and some of the gauges. More to come.

    Hi Steve thanks for adding me to your face book list. Where did you get the balsa model of the Bell X1. Since we saw each other last I got two A.S. degrees one in digital animation and the other in web design.
