I've seen a photo of the fuselage and wing leaning on a wall next to a door....that Concorde really is insane!!! It's just HUGE!

Not this one perhaps  --- this is 1/72 scale though

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!!

In Stock at Hannants:

North-American XB-70 Valkyrie

Total Goods   CDN $630.44
    + P & P   CDN $100.98   
    Sub Total   CDN $731.42
    Total     CDN $731.42
    
At $731 IMHO its a steal and good for a hospital stay of at least 6-8 weeks.

And if my arms aren't broken, I can build it as part of my physio and rehabilitation.

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!
