    This thread is for my Astro Racer builds, designs by Jan Rukr. Racers will be shrunk in my traditional way that I am apparently famous for now. Starting off with the twins: #200 and #202. Pics to follow soon.

    Twins are done....I have a feeling these will be essentially one day builds each. Which is cool because im putting them together while knocking out some online college :)

    Astro Racers #200 and #202

    My printer broke, so I cannot print anything for awhile. So I figured since I already have quite a few of the racers printed in my shrunk format, why not take a break from WH40K ;)

    I say build them Bro, they are easy, but really cool :)

    Guess not. Have you been able to work on the Omega Destroyer? I would love to see your interpretation of the design.
