    The all new Sumpter3000, available at a starship dealer near you. Easy monthly installments! Available in any color, as long as its "concrete"! Order now, and we'll through in a free Wookie!:D

    Pete, I'm in awe, my inspiration gauge has blown a gasket!!!......model trains, model ships, model space craft.........anything else? Are you holding out on us?!! :eek: :D

    I sure would love to see a web site with your talents on display! ;)

    Think I'll dig through my spar parts box and see if I can come up with an articulated, steam powered, intergalactic logging space ship !!!!! Sweeeet!:D

    Pete, Let me add my admiration to that of all the others. Already knew your modeling skills are superb, but what a job of conception! Very cool.

    My thanks to everyone for the comments, I wasn't looking for, or expecting the response!!
    Vic,
    the scale is close to 1/64th, I entered this in a NIMO (Northern Illinois Modelers Open) contest a few years ago and took a second place. I considered that a very high honor, as the competition was beyond belief!
    McFortner,
    I'll have to check out Starship Modeler, I do have a couple of other models that I could photo, and post. Thanks, I didn't know there was a site for this type of model.
    Clerk,
    The two figures came from a plastic kit of a Garbage truck, that was reconfigured as a stage for a rock band. I think the kit is still available. The figures are very close to S (1/64th)scale.

    Wow! when I get tired of modeling railroads I model 1:1 scale stuff for the house. I usually get tired of modeling when my wife starts talking about me sleeping in the room with the trains.:D
