Dragon Warbirds is offering a stunning 1+1 set of the famous Bell X-1, the first aircraft to break the sound barrier in level flight. Modelers will get two complete 1/144 scale models of the X-1 in the box. But before describing the models, a bit of background about this record-breaking aircraft would be useful. Development of the X-1 started in 1945, and it was inspired by the shape of a Browning .50-cal machine gun round. Essentially, the Bell X-1 was a bullet with wings, propelled by a four-chamber rocket engine. The first supersonic test flight occurred on 14 October 1947 with the famous Captain Chuck Yeager at the controls, and he achieved a speed of Mach 1.06 (1,299km/h) in his X-1.

As previously mentioned, Dragon is offering two 1/144 scale plastic models of the Bell X-1. The first is a realistic replica of this supersonic craft, while the second has a unique transparent fuselage that shows off the “innards” of the X-1. Details on these models are masterfully recreated in miniature, including full cockpit detail. Modelers have the option of showing the X-1s in either flying or landing modes depending on how they assemble the undercarriage. The two models also come with a sleek display stand that allows both models to be displayed “flying” together. This is an impressive set, and with two plastic models and the stylish stand included, it offers unbeatable value!
