Olimp has provided us with their 1/72 X-2 "Star Buster" kit. This is a full build Review.

Hi Chuck

Nice Review! It's shocking to see the original aircraft in such a sorry state though - a plane of this importance deserves better...

All the best

Well as life would have it, my research turned up that that last photo (which I took at Chino) is a photo of a movie replica (prop) not the real X-2. But it would be nice if it was put back together and on display, there is just no room right now
