Boeing B-29 & Bell XS-1: Off he went.

Almost at the moment of release, the bright orange XS-1 “Glamorous Glennis” (46-062) is seen here descending from his B-29 mothership (45-21800) bomb bay.

Gorgeous artwork taken from the TAMIYA “USAF Bell X-1 Mach Buster” model box cover. Some artistic licences have been taken: the XS-1 is a bit too forward at this stage, its engine ignition is still a few seconds away. This GIF shows us the way it was.
