Thanks for the kudos. This build was a real labor of love. I know it's an experience I'm not likely to ever have again. Oh, gee, now I'm getting all teary-eyed. You'll have to excuse me...

Were they actually considering a vertical rocket boost takeoff? Or is that something the imagineers at ITC cooked up?

(cool kit by the way. Got me reading about B70's A12's SR71's etc. etc. etc.)
Actually, there were a whole series of rocket-assisted fighter booster systems being developed during the 1950s, but none was as ambitious as the one depicted in the model. Most involved smaller rockets used to catapult jet fighters off the backs of flatbed-like trucks. None of these experiments led to anything significant (obviously).
