That 1/48 Concorde in the pic above ---  I haven't seen any news about it

Mind, it doesn't really compare against this 1/36 scale one

HPH XB-70 bash-build as colossal 1/72 bomber.  Lots of room for laser gun turrets.

Yikes!!  A 1/48 XB-70 scaled into 1/72 would represent a real aircraft 86.4m long with a wingspan of 48m!!

I bought us his 'n' hers new-tool Airfix 1/72 Tiger Moths - she likes Tiger Moths - for us to build together about a year ago and they're both still sitting in the stash, so I don't see her agreeing to a Valkyrie!

If my calculations are correct, the wing span will be 57 1/2 in. The fuselage will be 40 1/2  in.

It still fits though most doors but what size vehicle will be needed to haul that thing to the model shows in one piece and not partially disassembled?

Either a 59 Edsel wagon or a 65 Rambler American wagon.

Oh my !
Ya know, is ideal for Greg.
Sure to be a dreadful price tag.
59 Edsel wagon can certainly handle it.  Have to check on Rambler.
Like to have box art print.
