I like you're version better . This one looks more "Balanced ". I'm surprised Ed Roth himself never envisioned a second version of his creation. I met him once when he was part of a World of Wheels show in Dallas once . He really was a wealth of useful information that day. He would stop and answer my questions as he was signing autographs for others .

Looks good so far.  I thought you were going to use both bodies to make a Star Wars cloud speeder.

 

Thanks Eric!

 

That's a good idea.... B)

MORE BLACK!!!

 

I painted the inside of X-ite with Tamiya Flat Black. Engines and Landing Gear are from AMT's Star Wars X-Wing Fighter.

The Access Panel was also painted Black and '32 Ford Hubcaps were used as Vertical Thrusters...

LOTS OF GLASS!!!

 

I added the Rear Door Glass and the Windshield. Later, I applied Black Stripping Tape around the Windshields Edges, to cover the glue line. The Side Windows were a little tricky to fit in, but I got them in. I used a product called Formula 560 Cockpit Glue to attach the Windows, Good Product!
