Surely someone will attempt the Scenicruiser in styrene!

Whoever was working at General Dynamics / Westinghouse at the time spent way too much time designing this fictional future Soviet / Chinese bomber concept just for their AIM-152 AAAM(Advanced Air-to-Air Missile, canceled in 1992)promo fact sheet.

Work in progress ::

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

Folks:

I reached out to Bill Dady of Claveworks to see if he is open to commission works

I emailed him at: bill@clavework-graphics.co.uk

Does anyone know if he is still around?

Thanks

Not sure.  His own website looks defunct and the last time he was seemingly active on Deviantart looks to have been June this year.
