Convair NX-2 1961 Atomic-Powered Bomber 1/144 Scale Model Kit


Convair NX-2 1961 Atomic-Powered Bomber 1/144 Scale Model Kit:

During the 1950s and 1960s, the United States military actively pursued developed of a long-range strategic bomber powered by atomic energy. Of all the designs developed during this period, Convair's were probably taken the most seriously. Its NX-2 had two principal variations; one had three nuclear X211 turbojets housed in its rear fuselage, plus two underwing nacelles housing single Pratt & Whitney J75 chemical jets for use during take-off and landing. The second variation had four NJ58 nuclear turbojets placed in pairs, but no conventional jets for assistance.

In 1961, President Kennedy decided that nuclear power for jet aircraft was unfeasible, and ordered the program cancelled.

The NX-2 will depict the three-engine version of Convair's design, which includes the underwing jet nacelles.
