The XRV would look good atop a Titan III, either single-stack or triple-stack with solid-rocket boosters.

Which version of "The Thing" is the saucer from?

I like the look of the XRV.

That's a good question, the "original" with James Arness as the alien "monster" or the remake by John Carpenter that was far closer to the original source material, John W. Campbell's classic "Who Goes There?" (there's some interesting personal history in the inspiration for Campbell's story).

Ugly is in the eye of the beholder.  I actually liked the design, but then again, I liked the look of the BV-141... ::)
