    Title says it all. I LOVE this design and want a kit for myself, but I want to know if anyone else would like a copy. Here's a pic along with a scratchbuilding article on how it was made:

    I thought it would be relatively easy, being nothing more than a couple of blimps with a greebled cross-bar in the middle. I want it to be 1:5000 scale, that is 27.87 inches long when finished.


    (btw, I know I have, like, *a thousand* kits started, but one more can't hurt, right? :oops: )

    Don't know what a Perry whatzit is; looks intimidating and fearsome. I like it! Put me down for one. Also a 1:1 fully functional one for use in traffic and to enforce my will upon the world! MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! :twisted::twisted::p

    Elliott, I made the mistake of reading your post AND looking at your avatar at the same time!
    Now my nose burns from blowing cola out of it, and my keyboard is sticky... :D

    - On a more serious note, I never seen this show before... I have seen some Revell Plastic Kits of Perry ships, but not this Cool looking blimp. Could be a fun build...

    Thanks for the support, guys. Perry Rhodan is not a movie or TV series, though. It's a German book series which has an incredible following. I've been contacted about doing this ship as a possible official commercial kit sold by the Perry Rhodan Fan Zentrale in a limited run of 100 kits, so it won't be available here for free. However, I may be able to talk about a possible freebie in a much smaller scale (say, 1:20,000).

    I'll let y'all know what happens there. In the mean-time, watch this space. :thumb:

    Btw, before I can do anything else, I need to buy a new mouse. The old one is pushing up the daisies as it were. :rolleyes:

    Congrats and good luck MF! Hope it all works out!
    Luckily the mouse isn't that expensive...

    Okay, found a mouse. :thumb: And on top of that I finished the model this afternoon:

    [​IMG]

    The 'cage' in the middle surrounds a greebled hull, so don't be alarmed at it's appearance. I'll get it unfolded tomorrow. :cool:

    The stuff on the left and right are extra guns, btw. Since this is going to be released as a PDF and not a PDO, I decided to include a bunch of extra guns and antennas which can be positioned however the modeler wishes.

    I'll also be doing photographic instructions, so there will be a build-up article here.

    Most excellent! :mrgreen: A very complex looking model. This could look quite good next to other fleet models. Keep up the good work!!:wave:

    Well, Perry Rhodan is a german weekly novel series that runs for 49 yers (!) now...

    The AGLAZAR called battleships are 3 km long ships, 100.000 years old, and flown by some "bad guys".

    And they are supposed to look intimidating and fearsome, 'cause that`s the way those bad guys were ruling their galaxy until the made the mistake to attack mankind (and Perry Rhodan and his fellows...) :twisted:

    By the way, I built the scratchbuilt ship from the first post. :wave:

    Here some additional pictures:

    I had to give this one a break for a bit; rearranging the textures on the model was enough to make me tired of looking at this thing. :oops:

    I'll come back once it's had a chance to 'cool' for a bit. :thumb:
