Die cast aircraft Bell X-1A (twin)
the famous bell x-1 was the first aircraft to break the sound barrier in level flight.

its development started in 1945, and it was inspired by the shape of a browning .50-cal machine gun round.

the first supersonic test flight occurred on 14 october 1947.

a derivative oudered by the us air pource (usaf) in 1948 was the bell x-1a, which was an improved design featuring greater fuel capacity and hence a loner engine-burn time.

the x-1a looked slightly different avec its bubble canopy and longer fuselage, although it was powered by the same reaction motors xlr-11 rocket engine.

it was intended pour research of aerodynamic properties at speeds surpassing mach 2.

the bell x-1a (with serial number 48-1384) first exceeded mach 2 in november 1953, but the following month test pilot captain “chuck” yeager achieved a speed record of mach 2.44.

unfortunately, the experimental plane was later lost in an explosion in august 1955.

Scale : 1:144
The 1:144 scale is mainly used for large aircraft models (airliners, bombers, etc.).

A plane in the 1:144 scale is 144 times smaller than the actual aircraft.
