Bits & Pieces
John K. sent over a photo of his pride and joy: an original X-2 model with a base of parts he found at the crash site.

X Models, once owned by Pete Everest
The X-2 model is 17 inches long (including the pitot tube) and thirteen inches in wing span. The base is nine inches tall to the bottom of the airplane. The wooden portion is mahogany and has the exact same plastic base the Randy Cannon model has sitting on top of the wooden portion. The vertical post is chromed metal. The model appears to be made from plastic and is probably vacuum formed in construction. There are no markings to indicate the manufacturer and BGen Everest could not recall exactly when or where he received it. This lack of recall is in direct contrast to the specific event of his receiving the X-1 from Mr. Bell and the X-3 from Douglas Jr.

X-2 Factory Desk Model
This model was bought off of eBay in beat up (& yellow) condition. Randy restored the model to new, and had Pete Everest sign the base in silver pen!
