    Thanks guys.:wave: There are 3times more ideas for upcoming racers, than 3d models shown in the hi res picture, but thistime they are in the state of sketch or color scheme craft (Level just before making 3d model from it.:rolleyes:).

    just like this: Sketch of the single ship.

    Jan, I have also been following these since you first started releasing them, have all the releases sor far saved. Im not in a mindset for building yet, but when I get back in frame, I believe these will be a perfect idea for building....may just put my special "micro" spin on them. You have always done excellent work. Great designs :) Keep it up :)

    Mmmm. I have a few of this collection already built, the rest are printed, ready for build. I need to get a few more rainy Sundays to catch up.
    But living in the Netherlands, that shouldn't be a problem. :D

    Pouring down...

    Well, I went there in 1990, and it wasn't raining... Only when I left (stayed for about four days) we had a few raindrops.
    I think now we can pinpoint when it started! sign1 sign1 sign1 sign1 :p

    Elementary, my dear Watson...

    Now you've really made me laugh so hard that my wife came in the room to ask me what was going on, and I couldn't stop to tell her! sign1 sign1 sign1

    :eek: Cooooooool!!!! :eek:

    It is obvious on which model this one was based. :twisted:

    Which makes me wonder:

    Dear Jan,

    some time ago I saw some WIP pics of a bigger version of the Aliens ropship and a detailed cokcpit interior. Is there any chance that this will be released when it is ready?

    :rolleyes:
