I bought a bunch of pieces (45+) from Ainsty just a month ago. From their Starport line. Make sure you buy in GBP as they don't update their US dollar costs and I saved a bunch since the pound is weak right now.

Awesome work I.O.

Those paint jobs are great. Makes me pine for the days when I had time to paint...*Sigh*... Even so I might have to look for some of the Grendel items. It seems likely that this has come up of late, but since I do not get to the DF threads as much as I used to, well...

Is the Grendel stuff stil available anywhere? And if so, who want's to paint them for me?...*Howls with laughter*...

maj!

MAMA!!!

Mike IO's back again, and he brought his PIPES with him!
He's setting up his fancy layouts again!

That setup looks like a cross between the Sulaco and something from the old StarFlight game, I think it was. it was an old, OLD, OLD-D-D IBM-PC game where you had to do cargo runs to get ship pieces to do better cargo runs to get ship pieces to finally do a run to EARTH for the final answer to the mystery.

Am I right?

Great set up, just one question i recognize everything (even the Mage Knight, and Micro Machines figures) except the two green boxy items in the cargo hold. where are those from?

I asked Shawn, and although he’s not exactly sure he thinks they were part of a Star Wars toy. "Anakin’s Pod Racer Shop"… ring a bell? I just found them among our bins and painted them to mix with the cargo stuff.

That looks AMAZING !!! Nice to see you and your builds back on the boards !!

Seeing this and other recent set-ups ("AVJ" and "Hoth Base") are drawing me into the Sci FI camp and making my wallet tremble in fear !!!

Thanks for sharing another great set-up !!!

WOW!

Those pieces appear to fit in seamlessly. They really make the ship look complete.

And the ship design (including those custom pieces) is, once-again stellar!


...Lousy pun not intended, the compliment certainly is.
