    I'm a HUGE Buck Rogers fan and have always wanted to build his Raanger3 ship. Its unique and not seen very often.Anyone know of a Ranger3 kit from Buck Rogers? I would look awesome next to the Thunderfighter I'm currently building

    So far there is no paper model available yet. It is on my todo list but I still haven't got the time to tackle it yet.

    The paper model from Armageddon could be bashed into it?

    Please keep in mind that R3 is not a regular space shuttle. You can't just take a model of a real one available and turn it into R3. The proportions are too different.

    @ThunderChild has been working on a card model of Ranger-3 for quite a while now. However "Real-life" has thrown a spanner into the cog-works for the moment. I recently contacted him and he will be returning to it soon to finish it up. Unfortunately, there is no ETA.
    Here is a preview:
