Call it either "Wingless" or perhaps "Grounded".

I've been puttering on and off with doing something like this with the Revell X-15.

I couldn't agree more! Les never ceases to amaze me! This one really hits on all cylinders! Love the weathering too!

You know, I've got plans to do something similar with a 1/48 DH-4. A GB for this might not be a bad idea...

Of course one can't forget post WW2 land fighter racing.  Was an exciting and creative era in racing.
Love that your models accurately depict two racers with pace fighter in the center. :-*
