Fantastic 1:15 scale fiberglass model of a North American Aviation X-15 hypersonic rocket-powered aircraft, designated as "66672," measuring 40 x 18.5, featuring several accurate US Air Force, NASA, and component decals by Retro Rocket. Includes the original metallic display stand with North American Aviation logo. This model was built from molds originally created by noted special effects designer Gene Young of Burbank, California. This model was done as a tribute to Neil Armstrong's famous 'skip flight' where he almost missed landing at Edwards AFB and might have had to land at Los Angeles Airport. Fortunately as a skilled pilot, he made it back to Edwards. In fine condition.
