Well it's been twelve years.

Thought I'd clank on the barrel again, or ring the turtle, or brandish the artichokes.

Can't even find pictures of the studio model.

I can add what I've got; that ain't much! Found around the web and FB:

Awesome! thanks for that. So that's how it got to orbit. Did not know Cobb did this! That makes sense because it looks so great.
He was honestly gifted!

I'd scored an MPC 1/72 Rockwell B-1B for a insanely low price a few years ago, and I'm itching to convert it to a B-1"S" to launch a 1/72 scale Crossbow...

He did some homework, giving it a tail similar to the shuttle's 747. That would have been a cool launch sequence if they had chose to depict it.

Sad, cool designs like this get forgotten into obscurity and every little ship in Star Wars gets a Bandai kit! LOL
