Which what-if version You'd like to see in the decal set?

 

I'd definitely buy one if the what-if decals included 92nd Wing markings from the SAC era. I think the "Seahawk" tail markings they used to have on Fairchild AFB B-52s and KC-135s would look quite good on the tails of a Valkyrie. The SAC sash and shield would also look good on it.

Hannants already have a TBA listing - I'll have one. Two if they throw in a set of What-if decals. Would rather have Cyber-Hobby would release a 1/200 though, I don't have much room!

Cyber-Hobby did release one, back in 2015, http://www.dragon-models.com/d-m-item.asp?pid=CHC2015

 

Not sure how easy it would be to get hold of one, though.

Take your pick!

I suspect white would have been required to keep cool - like Concorde - plus bare metal everywhere not too hot to save weight which even in the early test program was looking marginal. So white underside and leading edges, NMF, SAC stripe and shield. Should look lovely...

 

I would have done one of the Cyber Model 1/200s - I have the Vulcan and Northrop flying wings in the scale, very nice - but I've never seen a listing for it outside Japan and there only already built.

The most probable livery would be over all a silver-grey colour developed for the B-70. It was flight tested on the X-15. General Melchet build an AMT XB-70 somewhere here in this colour I think.
