Bell / US Air Force manned skip-glide space bomber project of the 1955. Successor to Eugen Saenger antipodal bomber. Predecessor to Brass Bell, and to Dynasoar.

This model is a 1/72 Scale repliqua of a desk top model probably dated 1955 or 1956. Projects are known with one or three boosters, all of them using liquid propellant. In this last case, the three boosters show same length and diameter but differents nozzles sizes. Late in the programm a small stage (transtage) was added to the aft of the glider for an orbital version.

Model booster bodies are made from Altuglas/plexiglas tube, diameter size 38x42mm (int/ext) corresponding to a 120' diameter booster scaled to 1/72. I found only a very few of these tubes, so a maximum of 3 models with the complete tripple booster will be available. Still due to the lack of tubes, 9 single booster version model will be available. It was a unique occasion to have such tubes, they were produced from a special fabrication and I bet you can look for everywhere, you wont find some.

The glider will be available in the usual quantity -20 to 50 copies- , with "A" bomb and transtage. The glider will be presentable erected on the transtage as a base, or in landing configuration (then without transtage) if you want to realize a landing gear from your own; 1/72 drawings are provide in the model sheet for this purpose. Various extra parts may be added in the box, such as pilot(standing), base, etc.
