    Customizer,

    Hey that's part of the challenge! Although you can run some of the directions for kicks through the google translator. Always a good laugh.

    Ha! Tell me about it . I gave up on translating after about 10 minutes. Of course considering that I am making modifications to the builds to suit my personal needs I suppose I shouldn't worry about the instructions being in English much anyway.

    Pretty neat small collection. ...congratulations JAN. :)

    SOME FUN FACTS: Astro Racers 80 and 58 was designed by kids. Terror Racers was idea of eleven years old boy and Blue Bubbles is project of 9 years old girl. ....I´ve redesigned both ships into useful papermodels.
    I have lot´s of ideas for Astro Racers...like in the shape of Nintendo Gameboy console (4 years old ideea) or shape of star destroyer..or Orion 3 from space odysey.......or Impala car from Supernatural movie series :)

    For more astro racers stay tuned for Xmas. :)

    Jan,

    Yes, I would definitely like to assemble the Impala! That would be too cool.. especially from you. I REALLY appreciate all the work that you do with these astro racers. Thanks for all of the hard work you do with these designs.

    Very much looking forward to CHRISTmas!

    Love the new ship with the diorama! :) How did you post the pics with all the problems this site still has?

    Thanks again for sharing.

    Probably using a picture hosting service, which I am allowing due to the f'd up nature of our situation. ;)

    Z - I'm a slow learner :Computer::headbange::headbange::headbange: :hammerhead::hammerhead:and finally did just that as well! I noticed also that if you delete a pic from the file hosting service you delete the pic on this site as well :robot3::frak::robot1: :facepalm: so it is a continuous direct link.

    Time to upload pictures directly. I would appreciate if people could update their posts, I know it's a lot of work, but the thread remains whole. An account gets closed, then there a huge gap in the thread.
