    Ah FASA, creators of Battletech, too. I sorely miss them. Even if EACH AND EVERY FRICKIN' NOVEL had at least one typo.

    I wouldn't know about the typos but I loved the original battletech game.... too bad I cannot find some vict... um... people who would be willing to play the game... I got a whole new master rule book and no one to play, another FASA game I wish I could find whas the Doctor Who role playing game.... Doctor Who has always been one of my favorite Sci Fi programs ever!!! :mrgreen:

    Hey, the copy of TLS game I'm going to bid on on eBay also has a copy of Battletech, first edition, so you may have an opponent here . . . :twisted:

    That is a fantastic looking model!

    I haven`t read through all the 11 pages, so forgive me if this was alread asked: Will this be available to the public once you`re done?

    That is the idea, TC is working the instructions as we speak!

    Just wanted to say thank you TC for doing such a wonderful model.

    Also a quick question, how many sheets will the small model be?

    I managed to dry out my Master Rules Compendium (which had gotten soaked in storage), and I still have a regiment's worth of minis. Most are plastic, and most of my conventional troops are micro-machines.

    I'd be willing to play if anyone around here did.

    Kjev,

    I'm not too far away in Spokane, WA. I haven't played BT in some time but I'm willing to start again :D

    TC,

    This thread needs to get back on course but I would like to have a good game thread to continue this train of thought. Where should we start anew?

    Hiya Averjoe! The little GS is 12 pages without instructions. The instructions may be another 3 or 4, then the cover page that doesn't need to be printed. Grab a calculator! :D

    Getter, since this is originally your thread that I hijacked (sign1) it's not up to me... :mrgreen: I wouldn't have googled out threads regarding RPG's etc, so I find the discussion interesting and enlightening. If you do start a different thread, just let me know where so I can go read it! :)

    Sorry everyone, but the last few days have been hectic with 18-22 hour work days, so I haven't even glanced at the development or instructions... Things will be back to normal on Sunday evening, then I can throw some effort into both Gunstars.

    Does that mean there will be TWO models coming, a large one and a smaller one?

    Hey TC,

    I don't consider this or really any thread "my" thread. Besides my project died and your's a anew so it's now "your" thread :p but perhaps in reality everyone involved's thread ;)

    I suppose we could start a game disscussion over in gameing accessories? What do you guys think?

    Oh Steve0,

    I have another game I think is far more suited for Macross and Robotech. If you're intrested let me know. I would like to pick some brains for minature / stand up counter type pieces for the Robotech game I'm cookin up in the noggin :D

    If we do start a thread on gaming (which I'm game for, no pun intended), where would it be?




    Hey guys, here's some nostalgia-fuel for those building the Gunstar:

    Go ahead; I dare you to quit listening to that before the fifth time. :twisted: Good film scores are like Lays potato chips: betcha can't listen to it once.

    Hello All,

    Mo Pix of the small GS. Only 3 more engines to go :D

    Had a brilliant idea. The Gunstar is silvery-gray in the movie, so I thought printing off a second one when I'm done with the beta-model onto silver paper would look great. I'll probably try that out on the little version before I tackle the BIG Gunstar.

    Hey Thunderchild, could you also do a version with no fold lines?

    Hello All,

    Got to grinding on the Big GS today. I will have to re-do the nose section as I had printed my build at a slightly smaller size and forgot that when I printed this round of parts. Oh well give me the opp to test the new nose section for TC ;)

    Here we have the main body rear. Got it next to the small GS for a comparison.

    You guys were asking TC for BIG and boy did he deliver :D I'm almost afraid of this thing already :p

    Oh yeah, it's big . . . just the size I was dreaming of! :thumb:

    Hey TC, I'm almost done with the Gunstar's second round, so I'm about ready for the next part. I'll post a pic when I'm done (I finally remembered that the remote control had batteries. Yeah, I'm a doofus hamr )
