I was searching for some plastic models, and found the following list of Plastic models: http://www.ninfinger.org/~sven/models/space_models.html#us_x

I am interested in the X-Plane models on there and if you scroll down to Us X Planes 1/200 scale you can see they have the X-43 and Pegasus, the X-33, X-38, and X-36...all models that I have been looking for for awhile now. They say they are by HBM...has anyone heard of this company or know where I can find their site or these models?

Thanks

Let me warn you Resin cast models are generally not convertable. Some are cast soild some are slush molded. Resin becomes brittle after a year or so, Unless your planning on using these resin cast models as templates or something I wouldn't waste my money.

There are kits out there with resin cast parts. Like the Special Hobbies 1/48 X15 that can be used discarding most of the resin. Looks to me like the X43/pegasus at 1/200 is a soild cast model.
