After looking at some of my photos ó and comparing them with pictures of the real deal ó I concluded my XLR-99 motor didnít look right. There were details missing and some of the colors were wrong. So this morning, I pulled out my tools and made a new one. Sixty-six parts later, I popped off the old motor and glued the new one on.

I love your attention to details. Researching a model is sometimes even more fun then building it.

Yep. Iíve also been fortunate to befriend a couple of X-15 authors who have been generous with their time, insight and research.

Your complete disregard for mundane is inspiring. It is a special moment to visit PM and see what you've done since my last visit.

Wow.

Thank you for striving to replicate these models like you and YukonJohn are doing!
