Details on the previous page but the term you're looking for is Space Union, a line of a couple of cheap spacey toys.

I found them for sale in Egypt, India and Ukraine, but not in the US/Europe but if you find them let me know.

Under $20

Very much looking forward to seeing what people make of these.

Still annoyed I missed the golden age of the Debenham's Superplay Castle

Here's number 1, going for a Tramp Freighter of the Skies vibe.

Do you want some Greek shields or 15mm round bases to put over the ducted fan hubs?

I've been seriously thinking about buying a ton of Lego minifigs to play DnD with. Between 40K and real life, I don't have the time to paint for DnD anymore, and you can buy weapons etc so you can swap them out and make everyone's kit be accurate.


I'm loving these elves...

.Only a fool believes there is such a thing as price gouging. Things have value determined by the creator or merchant. If you don't agree with that value, you are free not to purchase.

This is a great kit. I now have a basis for a mag lev train for my 40k supply depot factory board and a stack of sci fi plate bits and a few small vehicles and doodads. This thing makes sounds too!

Looking good!

I'm continuing the project in my blog, but I want to add with some work relocating the control tower I was able to fit two APCs on the deck.

I cut the Toy Airship in half and used it as a base for some Industrial tile for my next table. This is one half here:

I still have the flat pieces/bits/turrets left

Next year's project (OK, among next year's projects) is my backwater spaceport idea so I'm always looking for aerospace craft to include.

Valkyrie sized cargo copter, could also make for one of the AM ornithoptors with the right wings.

I found this cheesy monstrosity in my local supermarket. Could be orkified, or serve as a source for scenery bits.
There is a version with (presumably) Flakvierling 38, and also Flak 18.

Yeah, the hippie peace symbol really makes it spicy, haha. It never fails to amaze me with what Chinese toy producers are able to come up with.
This thing looks a fed-up garbageman looted a military museum.

Now about the model itself:
The website claims the truck is 1/64 scale, which is believable, and somewhat possible, although the gun is horribly out of scale. I thought of using it for a small AA emplacement terrain piece. I don't have to scratch-build a gun or buy a necessarily detailed and fragile Tamylia kit.
