Here's a unique little project. An unlikely 72nd scale formation of an M2-F2, X-24A and X-24B. The X-24s are the Mach 2 kits while the M2-F2 is an Eagles Talon vacuform. The gentleman that commissioned this display sent me the Eagles Talon X-24s as well and it was pretty obvious to me the Mach 2 kits were based directly on them.
Sending the vacs was a good move as their decal sheets were much superior to the Mach 2 rendition.
The base/stand was my own design and getting the three lifting bodies in the exact tight formation I wanted was a bit trickier that I thought it would be.
The original plan was to have clear canopies and pilot figures in the aircraft, but the general fit of all three models was so bad that I ended up seeking the path of least resistance, and just blacked the clear areas out. You get the idea.
