This Bell X-1 is from Tamiya's model kit built with some slight
including a scratch-built engine section. Other additions include a
figure modified from another 1/72 scale aircraft kit and Chuck Yeager's
broom handle. The model rests on a custom-made stand.
above photo shows the pilot figure taken from an Airfix Avro Vulcan
kit, before and after modification. The arms came from a Revell F-19
Stealth Fighter kit.
This photo shows the painted pilot figure in the X-1 cockpit with a
eraser for scale. The orange arrow points to the legendary broom handle
used by Captain Chuck Yeager to lock down the hatch to the aircraft.
