... unless they use one of the newer, better flexible plastic formulas.

Gotta say I love Dragon's flexible "DragonStyrene" tracks; they take paint so-o much better than old vinyl tracks & they're so much easier to use than indy-link tracks with no significant loss of detail!

I am so, so very excited by this company. So many neat old kits I'd not be able to afford coming back to the market (not that I can afford any right now anyway!) like the Cheyenne and Allison turbine. And I'm a sucker for box-scale oddities when they're cheap. Great whif fodder!

Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Ah but is that what you plan to build it as?  I have often thought an Air Force one livery might work.

I was thinking of building it as a spacecraft. But if I were to build it as an airliner, I'd put it in Western Airlines livery.

Correct me if I am wrong but I seem to remember that the original release of this kit included two SST models?  One SST with wings extended and the other SST with wings retracted?  I remember seeing an image of the built models on a display stand that accommodated both models.

I thought so, too. There were several models according to Scalemates.. We're thinking of the Revell 1/200 version, which came with supersonic and subsonic versions (see instructions).

This is a re-release of the Monogram 1/400 SST.

I suppose I should have been more proactive and checked the ScaleMates data base before asking the question.  So the smaller scale Boeing SST models were the subject of that old photograph. 

I was not aware of the Monogram Boeing SST kit until I was today years old (:smiley:)
