A nicely detailed version (like you are designing) will be a cool addition!

During a visit to Beale AFB, Calif, years ago, I came by a display of a D-21 on a transport cart near the flight area of the base. I had never seen one of them before, nor had I heard of the drone. I looked it over for several minutes and started to walk away when someone came out of the building it was in front of.

After questioning him for several minutes, I learned a lot about the aircraft, and what it could do, and also that it had recently been quietly declassified.

I recall reading somewhere about one of the drones being found in either China or the old Soviet Union. They was a bit of confusion as to what it was and where it came from. I think I would have been somewhat confused if one morning, one of them appeared in my backyard. 8v)
